Like Hokkan, Sairou, and Konan, Kutou is an imperial and hereditary monarchy, having a known emperor. The ruling families and its members have been exposed in scarcity, but the Kutou Emperor is shown in the series and Prince Hakei in the prequel.
- Shunrou: Kutou's capitial city, famous for its impenatrable walls, close-knit dwellings, and a strong arsenal.
- Hin Tribe (formerly): This tribe harbored people of European decent who worshiped Tenkou , the demon god. Under the rule of the Emperor, the tribe's people were severly abused and ultimately slaughtered by Kutou forces. Nakago hails from this tribe.
Not much is known about Kutou's climate, but sources from the original series present it to be very green and mountaineous with jungle-like forests populated with tigers.
- Watase based Kutou on Xi'an, which was of the Great Ancient Capital's of China.
