The Caliphate of Iznogoud is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Caliph with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 25.056 billion Iznogoudians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

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.

The criminal underworld is awash with sausage smuggling, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, and stray cats threaten the fledgling avian-based internet. 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 4th in Scandinavia and 86th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 24 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
