Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Caliphate of Iznogoud is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Caliph with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, strictly enforced bedtime, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.256 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 14,200 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 540,857 dinars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,621,982 per year while the poor average 64,579, a ratio of 40.6 to 1.

The bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Baghdad, Caliph is refusing to make decisions until the Moon is out of Capricorn, tourism spikes whenever a major ship or plane is lost at sea, and governments opposing Iznogoud are beset by rebels. 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 87th in Scandinavia and 127,761st in the world for Best Weather, with -3,858 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
