First of all, welcome to NRPG! *tiny cheers of welcoming* \o/
I'm actually proud that you read the rules first. Props to you for being awesome.
A fair warning before you get into things, though: the site (being a game with rules and mechianics) doesn't work exactly as in canon.
Now that the disclaimers are out of the way, I'll get to your village question. As a "noob", it really depends on how you want to play the game. If you want to level quickly early-game, then Konoha is the best option. If you want to level quickly late-game, Kiri is by far the best. Suna has some great (and possibly experienced?) people in it. Hoshi is an amazing place to build storyline and character development, and Kumo is a good place to build a character with little competition.
So, while there's not any specific recommendation, each place has its own pros and cons.
