Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Caliphate of Iznogoud is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Caliph with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, digital currency, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 28.767 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 15,212 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 528,826 dinars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,964,676 per year while the poor average 46,772, a ratio of 63.4 to 1.

Priceless Maxtopian artwork can often be found in executive bathrooms, children fear compulsory visits to their spiritual advisors more than the dentist, personal injury lawyers are demanding compensation from the government after recent reductions in manufacturer liability, and 90% of active duty IAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones. 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 12,130th in the world and 3rd in Scandinavia for Most Conservative, scoring 77.46 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
