Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Caliphate of Iznogoud is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Caliph with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 25.824 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 13,972 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 541,051 dinars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,622,921 per year while the poor average 64,603, a ratio of 40.6 to 1.

Prominent cultural symbols are featured on the backs of cereal boxes, environmental protestors are being rounded up and taken away in sinister black vans as a massive land development campaign gets underway, the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, and Caliph claims to be the epitome of family values. 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 92nd in Scandinavia and 140,610th in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -608 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
