Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Caliphate of Iznogoud is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Caliph with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 28.074 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."

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. 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 15,276 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 544,149 dinars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,141,388 per year while the poor average 93,849, a ratio of 22.8 to 1.

Colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Iznogoudian Liberator", the government spends twice as much reclaiming lost settlements from the sea as it could've on coastal defences, soldiers are equipped with multi-million dinar battlesuits, and heart attacks are regarded as a coming of age ritual. 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 50,215th in the world and 38th in Scandinavia for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 3,872.23 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
