Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Caliphate of Iznogoud is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Caliph with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 25.659 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 tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment aren't 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 13,846 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 539,629 dinars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,616,027 per year while the poor average 64,433, a ratio of 40.6 to 1.

The commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Iznogoud with a very polite populace, citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, citizens who become homeless are immediately executed, and retail stores offer sales every hour on the hour. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 3rd in Scandinavia and 60th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 32 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
