The Kingdom of Izumo (イズモ公国 Izumo Kōkoku lit. Principality of Izumo in the Japanese version) is a nation in Fire Emblem Fates.
Known as "the kingdom of the gods", Izumo is a verdant, peace-loving country renowned for its healers. It is located south of Hoshido and the lands of the Wind Tribe, and north of Mokushu. Izumo maintains only a token military force and consequently has a long-standing reputation for neutrality in other nations' conflicts, but is on friendly terms with Hoshido. Despite Izumo's status as an independent kingdom, it is ruled by an archduke rather than a king.
After Ryoma and Takumi disappeared following a battle against a Nohrian army on the Izumo border, the Avatar journeyed to Izumo to find them. Their party was welcomed into Archduke Izana's manor, where Izana offered the Avatar and Sakura into a lounging room. It is shown immediately when they enter that "Izana" was the Nohrian mage Zola, and prepared to execute them. However, he is quickly stopped by Hinoka and the others after the princess thought that Izana would never act eccentric due to his royal status.
After Zola's forces were defeated, the real Izana, who turned out to be just as eccentric as Zola's impression, was found and freed. He explained that shortly after the battle on the border, Nohrian forces had stormed his manor and locked him away so they could set up the trap for the Hoshidans. The Avatar declined the archduke's offers of refreshment, seeking to return to the search for Ryoma and Takumi. However, as a descendant of the First Dragons, Izana had the power to commune with them and read fortunes. Izana failed to locate the missing Hoshidan royals, but confirmed to them that they were still alive. The Hoshidans left Izumo and headed for Mokushu to continue their mission.
