Facts About Iran

The Islamic Republic of Iran, located in southwest Asia, is governed by an elected President who appoints a Prime Minister and other ministers as well as a unicameral Consultative Assembly.  An appointed religious leader, known as an Ayatollah, is authorized to protect the constitution.
