Iri is one of the Silver Kingdoms in the northwestern rim of Roshar, bordering the Reshi Isles, the Reshi Sea, Rira, Babatharnam, and the Misted Mountains. People from Iri are known as Iriali. Iri is ruled by three monarchs, currently two kings and a queen. The Iriali queen has authority over foreign policy.
The climate in Iri is warm, so the Iriali often wear scant clothing like waist wraps, however, they have strict chastity laws. Iriali aren’t nearly as prudish as the Vorin peoples to the east, and are rarely inclined to bickering or fighting.

The Iriali have golden hair, a trait that breeds true like the black Alethi hair; the purer the Iriali, the more locks of gold in the hair. Many consider a lock of Iriali hair to be a ward of good luck.
