In this story: Iran
Iran is home to one of the oldest civilizations in the world, beginning with the formation of the Elamite kingdoms in the fourth millennium BC. The Iranian Revolution established today’s Islamic Republic in 1979.
The political system of Iran combines elements of a presidential democracy and an Islamic theocracy. Iran is a founding member of the UN, ECO, OIC and OPEC. It is a major regional and medium power and has large reserves of fossil fuels – including the world’s largest reserves of natural gas and the third largest proven oil reserves.
The country’s rich cultural heritage is partly reflected in its 22 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Historically a multi-ethnic country, Iran remains a pluralistic society encompassing numerous ethnic, linguistic, and religious groups, the largest of which are Persians, Azerbaijan, Kurds, Mazandaranis, and Lurs.
