Iriarim (IH-ree-ah-rim) is one of the six continents of the world.
Dividing the continent in half is a mountain-range. It quite effectively cuts the sides from having much contact with each other. Because of this, the cultures are quite different. Around each large body of water, there is the fertile land where much of the farming is done.
For the most part, has had changing political boarders, but not a lot of fighting between the kingdoms. With enough fertile land for the number of people on the continent, there has only been the want for more power, not the necessity of new goods.
Still, there has been a short lived bloody past to the continent, as there usually are when power is at stake.
