Wano Country has its own warriors, the Samurai (侍, samurai), who are swordsmen so strong that not even the Navy go near them. It was first mentioned by Hogback, as Ryuma was from there, with his fellow comrades. In the Wano Country, women are expected to be modest and speak gracefully and quietly. In addition, the chonmage is a common hairstyle. Aside from Ryuma and his friends, the only other known residents are Kin'emon, his son Momonosuke, and Kanjuro.

After his death, the legendary samurai Ryuma was buried in Wano Country. His legacy made him a national hero.
Kin'emon was born in a place in Wano Country called Kuri (九里, Kuri).
Some time after Kin'emon was born, someone robbed Ryuma's grave and made off with Ryuma's corpse as well as his sword, Shusui. This incident was considered a disaster that brought the country to its knees. When Kin'emon saw that Zolo had Shusui, he thought Zolo was the culprit.
