From the Paper:

"Iran was formerly known as Persia until 1935. By 1979 Iran was an Islamic republic with a theocratic system of government. Problems existing in the nation include its continued strained relations with the United States that began when Iranian terrorists held American hostages in the United States Embassy in Iran from 1979-1981. Also, until 1988, Iran was in a consistent war with neighboring Iraq, a war that intensified hostilities with the United States in the Persian Gulf from 1987-1988. Iran is considered a terrorist nation by the United States, and has been subjected to "US economic sanctions and export controls because of its continued involvement" in terrorism ("Iran", 2004). Iran is located in the Middle East between Iraq and Pakistan, and is comprised of 68, 017, 860 people. For every 1,000 people in the nation there are approximately 17 new births, and 6 deaths."
