Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Caliphate of Iznogoud is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Caliph with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 29.36 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 15,548 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 529,590 dinars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,968,963 per year while the poor average 46,840, a ratio of 63.4 to 1.

Many Iznogoudians struggle to find outlets for their pent-up competitive juices, the nation's interest in space is at an all-time high while interest in saving the planet is at an all-time low, the National Art Gallery's newest exhibit is the 500-year old Luna Lisa, and most Iznogoudian video games are banned in other countries. 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 175,012th in the world and 56th in Scandinavia for Most Armed, with 0.09 Weapons Per Person.
