Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Caliphate of Iznogoud is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Caliph with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 28.564 billion Iznogoudians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Social Policy and Environment not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baghdad. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Iznogoudian economy, worth an astonishing 15,082 trillion dinars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is a breathtaking 528,030 dinars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,895,513 per year while the poor average 49,037, a ratio of 59.0 to 1.

Pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects, games of cops and robbers typically end in at least one fatal shooting, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, and the nation's new religious police burn blasphemers on bonfires of their own books. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Iznogoud's national animal is the camel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is a major religion.

Iznogoud is ranked 164,572nd in the world and 74th in Scandinavia for Most Developed, scoring 39.83 on the Human Development Index.
