The United Commonwealth of Iran of Paseo is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Empress Noor Diba with a fair hand, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, digital currency, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 13.447 billion Iranians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tehran. The average income tax rate is 8.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Iranian economy, worth a remarkable 2,912 trillion Persian Pekis a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 216,569 Persian Pekis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bizarre-looking creatures called 'Lepoarddogs' dominate wildlife preserves, five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes, with increasingly clear skies nobody seems to mind the electricity bill going through the roof, and lending money has become a major liability. Crime is totally unknown. Paseo's national animal is the Lepoard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Zoroastrianism.

Paseo is ranked 19,900th in the world and 51st in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 7,296.91 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
