Iran was a nation-state in southwest Asia on planet Earth, historically known as Persia. It was the center of a vast empire from the 7th century BCE to the 4th century BCE, when the region was conquered by Alexander the Great.
In the early 1980s, events in Iran gave Gary Seven and Roberta Lincoln problems, which Lincoln would reflect on in 1989 as she watched the Berlin Wall fall. (TOS novel: The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh, Volume 1)
The primary language of Iran is Farsi (also known as "Persian").
Iranians were historically enemies of the Arabian people, a fact that briefly came to the mind of Ensign Faisal Prince during a stressful mission with fellow Ensign Rustam Kavousi, a Human of Iranian descent from the colony world of New Persia. The two 23rd century men were, of course, able to disregard this history and put their temporary anger toward each other aside quickly. (TOS novel: Vulcan's Forge)
