The Empire of Iran of Paseo is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Empress Shahnaz Pahlavi with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 9.58 billion Iranians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tehran. The average income tax rate is 3.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Iranian economy, worth a remarkable 2,094 trillion Persian Pekis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 218,619 Persian Pekis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Bizarre-looking creatures called 'Leoparddogs' 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 Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Zoroastrianism.

Paseo is ranked 4,275th in the world and 10th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Corrupt Governments, with 160.71 Kickbacks Per Hour.
