The Democratish Republic of Persia (Persish: Jomhuri-ye Demokrātik-e Irān), also known onefoldly as Persia (Persish: Irān) is a Near Eastern land. Russland, Turkmenia, and the Caspish Sea are to its North; Kurdland, Turkland, and Babylon lie West; the Persish Sea is at the land's South; and Indey and Afganland are to its East. One of the oldest cultures in the world, it lies somewhat in the middle of Asia and Europa, making it a gesheedely weighty pathway between the two continents. Almost 82 million folk call Persia home, living in 1.6 million foursidekilometres of land.

Werthshipwise, it stands as one of the greatest in the Near East, along the likes of Joedland and Turkland. Though of the three, it has the lowest GIP by head. Teheran, Persia's headstead, is a wealthy hub for business and trade, especially for the geselships that are onwicked in boring the earth for oil, Persia's top export. Persia is also a limbstate of the Gemeanwealth of Free States, a military and werthshiply forbanding of lands grounded by Russland in 1994.

The Persish regering is a onehoodstate democratish republic as said by the Groundlaw of 1992, also called the Groundlaw of Jean-Louis Shahbazi after Persia's Premier at the time. It headed by the Premier, or Nokhost Vazīr in Persish. As of the 2016 Wale, the Premier has been Bijan Mustafa'i, a statesman, businessman, and former general in the Persish Heere, of the Persish National Party. He oversees the Gemoot, or Majiles, which is Persia's lawmaking body. It is split into two houses, the Senate and the Nationalforsamling; the Senate is made up of 93 limbmen and -women, while the Forsamling has 351.

Persia was ruled by a manifoldness of caserly dynasties ever since the 500s BC, and became a communistish republic in 1943 after being taken over by the USSR. Mahometism, the land's micklest belief, albeit barely, has fallen slowly in years gone by since the 19th yearhundred in the wake of forwesterning. Persish culture today is greatly inflowed by Russish and French culture, though it still holds much of its old self. Today, it stands alongside Russland in the worldstep, and Persers think of Russers as their closest friends.


The English word “Persia” comes straightforwardly from Latinish Persia, which in turn comes from Old Greekish Περσίς or Persís, which lastly comes from Old Persish Pārsa. The Old Greeks knew about the Persers for as long as one can think of, and have fought against each other since around 499 BC. “Persia” came into Old English from Latinish as Persea, though later writers who also wrote in Latinish instead worked with Persia, hence it being the land's name today. Meanwhile, Pārsa is still in the Persish speech as the word Fārs, one of Persia's provinces.

In Persish, Persia is called Irān, which is said to have come from Aryān, a word in the dead Parthish speech, borrowed into Middle Persish as Ērān. In 1935, Reza Pahlavi, the last Caser of Persia, asked the international gemeanship to call Persia “Iran”, its homely name, and he was flat out told “no”. He kept on asking until his hanging in 1943, and the following communistish underling state under the USSR did not ask any further.

The land's folk are called Persers, while things about the land are Persish.


Grave of Cyrus II; 2004
Fore- and Old Gesheede ( – 651)

Bones of Homo sapiens neanderthalensis were found in Persia that are said to have been from around the Stone Eld. Menish farmers, meanwhile, showed up by around 10000 to 7000 BC. Steads and early forms of culture begin popping up around 4000 BC, and stone blocks with cuneiform writing hints that this script came to Persia by 3000 BC.

From 2000 BC onward, the Old Persish leeds came into the lands of Greater Persia, mixing with and killing off the first folk who already lived in the land. The dry rainless waeste was not very good for farming, and berghs made going around hard. From around 1000 BC to 678 BC, much of western Persia came under the yoke of Assyria, before being wrestled from them by a band of Persish stemms led by King Cyaxares, who grounded Mederne, the first Persish state. In the east, a paltry lord named Achaemenes is said to have grounded a dynasty, at least if the writings of Cyrus II's scribes are to be believed.

Cyrus II, known as Cyrus the Great, an offspring of the dynasty of Achaemenes, went ahead and overthrew Mederne and became the first to call himself “King of Kings”, or Šāhanšāh in Persish. Though Cyrus would die in slaught against the Massagetae, his offspring would forgreaten his riche, taking lands in Egypt, Babylon, Mesopotamia, Anatolia, the Caucasus, and Northern Greekland. The most wellknown among his dynasty besides himself would be Darius I and Xerxes I. In this time, Persia fought against the Greek steadstates, and though it won many slaughts against them, Persia would never gain full overlordship over Greekland.

Codomannus, or Darius III, would be the last of this dynasty, and also the worst, for he is forever known to all as the one who lost to the Greekish King Alexander the Great. Alexander never lost a slaught against his foes, and he made the greatest riche in the Orold World before Rome. Though sadly, he would die at a young eld and without an erf. His lands in Persia and the East would fall under one of his generals, Seleucus. Seleucus's riche would last until the first yearhundred BC, when his western lands fell to Rome and his eastern provinces rose up against him.

Romish legionaries against
Parthish cataphracts
What followed was the Parthish Riche, which lasted until the 3rd yearhundred YL. Much of Parthia's gesheede is known today from writings outside its own marks; this is not to say they had no writings of their own, however, only that they've been lost to time. Parthia often came against the Romish Republic, and later the Romish Riche, fighting slaughts in Mesopotamia, Anatolia, and Armenia. A wellknown happening in these fights is the Slaught of Carrhae, wherein a Parthish heere thwarted a Romish one 4 times as big, as well as killed the great Romish general Marcus Crassus and his son Publius.

Parthia was weakened by both infighting as well as near endless crig with Rome, which let a ruler from the rands of the riche to rise. Ardashir I of the Sasanish Dynasty would overthrow Artabanus IV of Parthia, King of Kings, and crown himself the new ruler of the Sasanish Riche, known to its folk as Ērānšahr, or the Riche of the Persish. Like Parthia before it, Sasania would find itself against the incoming Romers, fighting back and forth slaughts in Armenia and Mesopotamia. As time went on, Sasania would see the same plight as Parthia, as well as a new foe from the south, Mahometism.

Bahārestān, where the Majiles meets

The politish system of Persia is based upon the Groundlaw of 1992, underwritten by Premier Jean-Louis Shahbazi after the uproar happening during and after the USSR's downfall. On paper, Persia is a democratish republic with wales every 5 years. Many, besunderly among Persish folk who moved to the West, have called the “democratish” bit of this rather lacking, as well as called out Persia's underhanded wending of waleoutcomes. True enough, Persia indeed holds wales. However, since 2001, the Persish National Party has won every one of these wales. This has led to Persia being written as a “Mixed Regering”, scoring 5.37 out of 10 in the International Democratish Index.

The Groundlaw sets the Gemoot, or Majiles, as the lawmaking body of Persia, orsetting the Persish Overster Soviet that was Persia's unsplit legislature with a firm 500-man limbmanship from 1943 to 1992. It is a twosplit legislature; it has an upper house, the Senate or Senā, and a lower house, the Nationalforsamling or Šūrā-ye Melli.

The Senate, being the higher of the two, has the weald to block laws given by the Forsamling, as well as give forward its own laws, though both need at least more than half of the Senate's bidding. The Senate has 93 Senators, gewaled straighforwardly 10 provinces; each province has at least 1 senator, and can have more if it has the yeasay of the Senate as well as enough folk to beground one. The Forsamling, meanwhile, works to make laws, call whether or not to bode crig or make frith with Persia's fiends, and say to which regeringsministries the yearly budget goes. The Forsamling has 351 Fortreaders, taken in ondeal to the politish parties the folk chose in the Wale. The Fortreaders also choose the Speaker of the Gemoot, today Amiya Pahlavi, a young Americanish-Persish politicer who is also an offspring of the former Pahlavi Dynasty.

As said by its Groundlaw, Persia is led by the Premier. Today's Premier, Bijan Mustafa'i, was gewaled in 2016. Being both the stateshead and regeringshead, he oversees regeringly beshutmaking, and holds a long list of wealds. He has the befayness to break up and forlade anew the Gemoot, to block laws given by the Gemoot, to bename or lay off cabinetministers, and to fortread Persia in international settings. He also is the Overcommander of the Stridecrafts, as well as the President of the Gemoot. However, he has a lot of inflow beyond his wealds as Premier, often working to his gain behind prying eyes. Lastly, he can bename his Behalfspremier, who will work as Premier if he otherwise cannot do so. Mustafa'i’s Behalfspremier is one Ardashir Soomekh.

The Overster Gerightshove of Persia is the highest geright in Persia, as set by the Groundlaw. It is headed by the Head Righter of Persia, Lawyer Jamsheed Yousefi, who is chosen by the former Head Righter from a set of bewharvers given by the 11 other Righters of the Overster Gerightshove. It works as the last beroopingsgeright for forbreakings- and burghersfalls. Among many other wealds, it can also override laws given by the Gemoot based on whether or not they follow the Groundlaw. The Overster Gerightshove is also the only body that may orlet the forothering of the Groundlaw.

Persish soldiers in Basra; 2020

Two Persish flytugs; 2017

Persia's national military is the Arteš, which means “Heere” or “Ferd” in English, although it is mostly called the “Persish Stridecrafts” or “Artesh” in writings outside Persia. While Persia fielded heeres since at least before the times of Cyrus the Great, it only became a modern one in the times of the late Cazhar Dynasty to the early Pahlavi Dynasty, as the old Kings of Persia slowly took on western weapons, systems, and strategies. Today, it stands as one of the most well-beweaponed in the Near East, and though it is weaker when put aside the Great Mightes, it has the backing of Russland and the Gemeanwealth of Free States.

Its Overcommander is the Premier, Bijan Mustafa'i. He is also known for being a general in the Red Guards from 2003 to 2011, after which he left and became a politicer in the Persish National Party through his ties with its leaders. Overseeing the military is the Fordeithingingsministry, or Vezārat-e Defā' in Persish. The Minister of Fordeithinging is General Pierre Shahbazi, a top general in the Persish Loftmight and younger brother of former Premier Jean-Louis Shahbazi. The Stridecrafts' Head of Staff, meawhile, is General Arash Abbasi, a general in the Red Guards.

The Stridecrafts are split into five boughs:

Persish pancers; 2019
First is the Heere, or Nīrūye-zamini; it is the landbased bough of the stridecrafts, and the one with the most soldiers, with 243,410 soldiers and 8,500 reservists. The Heere oversees 51 foot infantry, motor infantry, pancer, artillery, and engineering brigades split into 4 militaryprovinces—West, East, Middle, and North, from biggest to smallest.

Next bough is the Loftmight, or Nīrūye-havāyi. It has 68,990 soldiers and 1,270 reservists, as well as 419 wingflytugs and 163 liftscrewtugs.

The Marine, or Nīrūye-daryayi, is the least weighty of the boughs. It has 61 ships and underseaboats teamed by 60,480 seamen and marineinfantry, as well as 1,230 reservists.

The Red Guards, or Negahbān Sorkh, are the Persish military's best of the best. While it is a landbased bough, it has its own flycraft and small boats. As such, they are often seen as rather alike the Foroned States' Marineinfantry Corps. Its 25,230 men and women are called Athanatoi, or Jāvedān, meaning “Undying”, named after the Undying Guard of the old Persish riches.

Lastly, the Gendarmery, or Žāndārmeri, is Persia's police, taken after Frankric's Gendarmerie. Persia has no burgherspolice, so the Gendarmery is the one and only policeoffdealing in the land. It has 121,000 gendarmes, and while it is a bough of the Stridecrafts, it isn't too unlike other lands' policecrafts in outbilthing and gear.

All in all, the Artesh has 530,110 soldiers. Some of these are draftmen under forplightly military thenst. By law, all men and women must be soldiers for at least one and a half years once they reach 18 years old. Outtakes from this are students in university and those unfit to be soldiers for bad health, a lack arms or legs, or mindsickness. New soldiers undergo groundoutbilthing for 12 weeks, where they are taught how to shoot, weapon upkeeping, and gehearsomeness, among other things. Officers, on the other hand, are chosen from the best learnlings from groundoutbilthing and study another 28 weeks in the Teheran Officers' School.

While the Artesh is the ambightly military, a few paramilitary crafts bestand. One of them are the Insidetroops, who work under the Innerministry. The Insidetroops work as needfall catastrophe help, uproarpolice, quick feedback teams, gefangnesswards, markwatch, and wards for weighty onlayings, such as ironways, crafteworks, lofthavens, and regeringsbuildings. When Persia is under outside threat, the Insidetroops are shifted under the oversight of the Artesh, so they are also a reservecraft. The Insidetroops have 61,710 men and women under it. Draftsmen under forplightly military thenst can choose to either go into the Stridecrafts or Insidetroops.

A bit of the Innerministry that has gained a less than good name internationally is the Bureau of Statessickerhood (BSS). Onefoldly put, the BSS is both the nighrightsthenst and gehemepolice of Persia. It is a gehemenessful organisation, known to carry out murders inside and outside the land which the regering often brushes off as unfalls. Persish burghers known to speak out against Persia's regering are quickly taken out. They also gather nighrights from Persia's fiends, undermine their infrastructure, and cripple military and burgherly markles.
