For my research plan, I am looking at Iran. Iran’s population is around 80 million and its Capitol is Iran, with around 8.4 million people in that city alone. Another major city in Iran is Mashhad. Mashhad is Iran’s second most populous city and has many religious edifices bringing tourism from around the world. The major language spoken in Iran is Persian, and the major religion is Islam. Iran is not considered a very rich country, and as of 2019, it was recorded that 31 percent of the population was below the poverty line. One of the factors for poverty in this country is because of corrupted government. An important date was in, 1979 when their monarchy was overthrown, and the Islamic Republic became their form of government. In general, what I mostly inferred from the article, is that Iran always seems to be in a content state of unrest and war, from governments, other countries intervening, rebellions, and other factors. This article was very informative and helped me have a better understanding of how Iran works in general.
