The country lies in the southern part of central Roshar, between an unnamed mountain range and the Tarat Sea. It borders Tu Fallia to the west and Jah Keved to the east. A single river splits the country in two. There are no settlements of global importance there. However, its position at the edge of western and eastern Roshar lends it great strategic importance. For anybody seeking to cross the country to invade its neighbors, the northern mountains and the southern coast form a bottleneck that makes moving troops through it highly difficult.
During the Silver Kingdoms era, the region was split in half between Makabakam and Valhav. At some point during the Era of Solitude, the area that would later become Triax was invaded by the Veden king NanHar, although he died during the war and was succeeded by his brother, NanKhet. As NanKhet died only three months later, giving way to a new dynasty, it's likely the Veden conquest never succeeded.
During the True Desolation, the Voidbringers struck at the strip of land bordering Tarat Sea, including Marat and Triax. Contact with the country, including its spanreeds, has been lost mere weeks after the arrival of the Everstorm, implying it was one of the first states to have fallen to the enemy. Following the Battle of Thaylen Field, Triax is believed to be under control of Odium's forces.
