Its government is controlled by the Ice Daimyō. Most of the island is covered in a permanent ice sheet, severely limiting farming. Due to this, and a lack of many useful resources, the country is one of the poorest in the shinobi world.
"Icicle Bread Rolls" (つららロールパン, Tsurara Rōrupan, English TV: White Icicle Bread) is a regional specialty of the Land of Ice.

However, the Land of Ice possess a fair amount of Iron and an unusual amount of tungsten that help supplement the country's income.
Thanks to the skill of the Land of Ice's shinobi from Hyōgagakure, the country frequently loans them out to other countries for a high fee for whatever purpose would be required of them.
