Iran is a country in western Asia. Iran is four times the size of Germany, but there are slightly fewer residents living here. Iran is located on the shores of the Persian Gulf and largely consists of desert and mountains. The desert climate is also home to the capital Tehran, which is also the largest city in Iran. More than 12 million people live in the province around Tehran.
Practically only Muslims live in Iran. The oil that Iranians sell abroad is important for the economy.
