The Caliphate of Iznogoud is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Caliph with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 24.92 billion Iznogoudians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, moralistic individuals devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as Social Equality and the Environment receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baghdad. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Uranium Mining industry.

Retail stores offer sales every hour on the hour, new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Iznogoud to be bombproof, the criminal underworld is awash with sausage smuggling, and citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Iznogoud's national animal is the camel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the dinar.

Iznogoud is ranked 5th in Scandinavia and 600th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 563 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
