A country in the Middle East. One of the few NON Arabic countries in the Middle East. They are actually Persian, not Arab, so don't get confused. 1950-1960 Good times in Iran where the mood was western like here. After the revolution, it turned into a chaotic land. Hopefully it will be restored to what it used to be, someday.
Iran is a country of beuty, spoiled by its government.

Middle Eastern country bordering Iraq, Turkey, Armenia, Azerbaijan, the Caspian Sea, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and the Persian Gulf.

Ruled by the Pahlavi line until 1979, when the religious leader Ayatollah Khomeini came to power. In November 1979, Iranians overran the American embassy in Tehran and took 66 people hostage, some of whom were eventually kept for 444 days. There was a failed American attempt to come rescue the hostages, but it was over a year of negotiation with then-President Jimmy Carter and the fact that Iraq invaded Iran in 1980 (for unrelated reasons) that probably led to the hostages' release after Ronald Reagan had been elected President. Iran and Iraq stayed at war until 1988.
Iran, center of the Middle East, fundamentalist theocracy, and home to some of the richest history of human civilization as we know it.

Formerly (until 1935), Persia. a republic in SW Asia: an Islamic republic since 1979. 53,920,000; ab. 635,000 sq. mi. (1,644,650 sq. km) . Cap.: Tehran.
A country which once ruled half the world. Currently under the dictation of an Islamic government, which is ripping the nation to pieces.
Various terrains, such as mountains, jungles, deserts, grasslands, etc., can be found in Iran without much difficulty. Huge natural gas and oil reserves are probably the reason Iran is still on the Map.
There are people of many races, religions and cultures all around Iran.
All 'n all, great country to spend a vacation in, not the place you want to raise your children.
I just gave you some facts about Iran without starting a war.

I·ran (ĭ-rān', ĭ-rän', ī-rān')Pronounced "ee-rawn," not I ran.

Population: 68,700,000.

A country of southwest Asia. Inhabited since c. 2000 B.C. by Iranian peoples, the region later became the core of the Persian Empire. After being conquered by Alexander the Great and ruled by the Parthian Arsacid dynasty, Persia was reestablished under the Sassanian dynasty (A.D. 224-651) and, after invasions by Arabs (7th century), Turks (10th century), and Mongols (13th-14th centuries), was reestablished again under the Safavid dynasty (1502-1736). The country, officially renamed Iran in 1935, was ruled by the Pahlavi dynasty from 1925 until the ouster of Muhammad Reza Pahlavi (1979) in a revolution led by the most evil man in the world, AKA Ayatollah Khomeini, who established an Islamic republic. Tehran is the capital and the largest city.
