Wihela Īni is the capital of the Tuanmali state of Japezīn. Despite its political importance, its population is not large, as most of the state's population lives on the western border, near Wīcos in the outskirts of the Capital Corridor.

Wihela Īni began as a planned settlement, one half of twin cities, each on one bank of the Ēci Zhigid (Two Sisters) River. The first was named Wihela Īni (Bright Brother), with the second intended to be named Kala Īni (Dark Brother). After the city failed to attract many inhabitants, Kala Īni was not incorporated, and today both sides of the river are part of Wihela Īni.
