The Imperial State of Afsharid Persia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ardeshir Shah with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, pith helmet sales, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 10.603 billion Persians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tehran. The average income tax rate is 17.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Afsharid Persian economy, worth a remarkable 2,265 trillion Persian Rials a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 213,690 Persian Rials, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens finish cleaning up after the annual National Treasure Hunt just in time for the next one, money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, the government builds houses for foreign newcomers, and video evidence of cruel animal experiments tends to be of poor quality. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Afsharid Persia's national animal is the Asiatic Cheetah, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shia Islam.

Afsharid Persia is ranked 736th in the world and 1st in Greater Middle East for Most Devout, with 11,561.8 Prayers Per Hour.
