Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Caliphate of Iznogoud is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Caliph with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 28.205 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 14,889 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 527,908 dinars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,894,840 per year while the poor average 49,026, a ratio of 59.0 to 1.

The government's economic policy is "sort it yourself", Merry Birthday is a popular protest song despite the risk of fines and royalty dues, Baghdad is a police state during international summits, and pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects. 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 181,583rd in the world and 80th in Scandinavia for Longest Average Lifespans, with 19.28 Years.
