The village square.

Giha Village (ジーハ) was an underground village located relatively close to Littner Village. The people there had access to electric generators, water, and raised pig-moles. It was a village that consisted of tunnels which were being ever expanded by their diggers who utilized large hand drills to navigate through the earth.

Pig-moles played a massive role in the lives of Giha's residents, since they were used as their only known source of food, clothing, and even bathing. Because their water supply was limited to only be used for drinking, bathing was performed by allowing pig-moles to lick the dirt and such off of one's body.

The chief was characterized as being "as large as he is a jerk".
