The Caliphate of Iznogoud is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Caliph with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 24.597 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.

Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, soldiers go to war dressed in cassocks and robes, and the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry. 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 53rd in Scandinavia and 114,405th in the world for Best Weather, with -5,721 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
