The Caliphate of Iznogoud is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Caliph with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 24.225 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.

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.

Drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government, all news sources are under strict government control, the government's only official statement on the burning down of Baghdad was that 'they shouldn't have been so careless', and fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government. 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 58th in Scandinavia and 112,175th in the world for Best Weather, with -5,703 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
