An island nation in the northern Sea of Dread was originally inhabited by the Makai people. Subsequent waves of immigration were reputedly initiated by outcasts from the five shires, escapees from penal colonies and pirates.
Strategically important the islands have been ruled by Alphatians and Thyatians but are currently a fiercely independent nation, happy and easygoing, innovative and perhaps a bit odd.
They are ruled by a king and queen who rule for a year at a time, competing for the privilege at an annual tournament.
In fact the Ierendi are renowned for their holidays, hospitality and resort like accommodations.
