About Iran

An Islamic Republic sitting on the Persian (Arabian) Gulf, its history is long and dates back to the Persian Empire. It is the 2nd largest county in the Middle East. Iran's capital, Tehran, is home to the opulent Golestan Palace juxtaposed with today's modern structures such as the 435m-high Milad Tower.

This is the land of the "Morality Police"; though tourists do receive a small amount of leeway, just don't tempt the situation too far.

The Internet is available in all of its major cities and has the 4th largest number of bloggers in the world, despite the Internet censorship being amongst the most restrictive and sophisticated its youth have found ways to surf through blocked websites.

With a population of around 80 million, Iran's startup scene has flourished with ecommerce growing rapidly and many foreign companies exploring ways to start tech companies in Iran or to allow their services to become available in the country. Its entire telecommunications industry is predominantly state-owned. It was the 2nd country in the Middle East to be connected to the Internet in 1993 and the government has made significant efforts to improve the nation's ICT infrastructure.
