Canaan (カナン Kanan) is a location from TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga. It is one of the four main kingdoms on the continent of Lieberia. It is situated in the rocky lands in the northeast. Like the neighboring Kingdom of Barge, it is populated by the descendants of the Zoans. It is named after Princess Canaan of Reeve, the fourth daughter of Emperor Carluon and Empress Utna.
For many years, Canaan maintained a peaceful relationship with the other kingdoms. Twenty years prior to the game's events, King Bahanuke declared war on the Gerxel Church after it threatened the peace on Lieberia. However, eighteen years later, he signed a peace treaty with the church and declared the restoration of the Zoa Empire. It is revealed that he was seduced by one of his concubines, Karla, who is a witch of Zoa sent to manipulate him. Afterwards, Canaan invaded Reeve, which caused the entire continent to fall under the control of the Empire.
During the story, Canaan is liberated from the Zoa Empire by Prince Sennet, who succeeds his late grandfather as the king after the war.
