Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Caliphate of Iznogoud is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Caliph with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, strictly enforced bedtime, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 27.57 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 receive no funds. 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 14,912 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 540,910 dinars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,153,983 per year while the poor average 91,497, a ratio of 23.5 to 1.

Police and sick people alike fear the Day of Rest as all institutions are forced to shut down, hordes of gardening enthusiasts are being banished from cities nationwide, "To Hell or to Marshland" is a common settler cry directed at native Brasilistanis, and the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups. 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 3rd in Scandinavia and 245th in the world for Safest, scoring 3,899.342 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
