Iran Travel Information


Iran Flag Iran (the Islamic Republic of Iran) is a country in southwestern Asia (the Middle East region). It shares land borders with Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iraq, Pakistan, Turkey, and Turkmenisten. Iran has sea coasts on the Persian Gulf, the Gulf of Oman, and the Caspian Sea, the last of these being an inland sea.

As of 2009, the population of Iran was estimated as 74,196,000. The capital, and largest city of the country is Teheran, which has a population of about 8 million.

The Iranian economy is based around a combination of state ownership and central planning of larger enterprises (including oil), as well as smaller private ventures, and village agriculture. The service sector is the largest sector of the economy, and industry the second largest, and oil and gas accounts for about 45% of government revenues. In recent years, the government of Iran has been introduced more market-orientated reforms (including attempting to privatize many government owned manufacturing concerns), as well attempting to diversify the economy away from oil.
