The so-called Islamic Republic of Iran was formerly known as Persia and is regarded as one of the cradles of ancient human civilisation. The name Iran comes from the word Aryanam, meaning ‘Land of the Aryans.’ While the exact meaning of Aryans is uncertain, it is thought to mean ‘lords’. Iran now is the headquarters of the deviated shia cult/sect.
Due to its location and at different times of its history, Iran has been both an empire and a vassal state. Today, it is growing in influence in the Middle East.
