The Caliphate of Iznogoud is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Caliph with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 29.108 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 15,407 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 529,326 dinars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,967,478 per year while the poor average 46,817, a ratio of 63.4 to 1.

Children's books regularly feature formerly distressed damsels suing their princes, penal labor is a de facto death sentence, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, and kids are exceptionally good at digging holes. 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 12,557th in the world and 13th in Scandinavia for Most Stationary, with 824.70780552 Days.
