After the founding of Iwagakure, a nomadic ninja clan called the Otoko Clan, disapproved the rule under such a regime, as they were a powerful clan in the Iwa-Kusa Region. The First Tsuchikage ignored it, saying Kage level is just reserved for powerful ninja. A young Kenshin disapproved of this, basically saying the Otoko Clan was weak.
Weeks later, the Otoko Clan was exiled to Kusagakure. Unfamillar with such a floral region, they refused. They declared independence a year later forming a small village in a large canyon known as "Ravine Town."
Originally, Ravine Town wasn't suppose to be a ninja village. Kenshin wanted tranquility, and was just suppose to be a resort town, famously known for beautiful views. However the Tsuchikage demanded Ravine Town be destroyed.
Kenshin, aware of the Tsuchikage's dissaproval, asked for Kusagakure's help, but said they couldn't fight a powerful ninja nation. Tsuchikage fielded an a small army at the time, but large enough to overun the small village with a few ninja.
The Tsuchikage annexed Keikokugakure, while a jovial Earth Daiymo (with the Tsuchikage) forced the Otoko Clan to their death, making them jump of Keiko Cliff, a few miles from the now destroyed Ravine Town.
The army though had some Otoko members who remained loyal to the Tsuchikage, witnessing the death of family members. They rose up, initially starting the Iwagakure Ninja Army Uprising, which eventually killed the First Tsuchikage, leading to the leadership of Mu. Mu accepted the independence of Ravine Town, as he would use it as a buffer against the Kiri Nin. Mu offered Ravine Town an alliance, which to protect them.
Kenshin was put in control of Ravine Town, which he decided to name Village Hidden in the Ravine, or Keikokugakure. Kenshin made him the newly formed Kaikage, and made Keikoku a ninja village.
Kenshin was faced against Konohagakure and Sunagakure in the first three Shinobi World Wars, until whichpoint, Kenshin died during a battle with Tobriama Senju, after being killed by his Wood Release. His apprentice ascended Kage position, however died at the start of the Third Shinobi World War at the hands of Minato Namikaze.
The Third Kaikage, however, is currently is in a coma after being almost killed from a ressurected Madara Uchiha, and the Earth Daimyo is assigning a Fourth, because the Third is expected to die. The Fourth candiate is Hideyoshi Midori.
Keikokugakure is a current participant in the Fourth Shinobi World War, as it originaly had an alliance Iwagakure. It participated with it 1st Keiko Nin, were Keiko Nin are in Divisions 1, 3, and 4.
Keiko nin were a beige flak jacket, with kanji on the back for "Tranquility." They were a brown jumpsuit underneath with a giant Otoko Clan symbol on the back of their jumpsuit
