Iran is a theocratic Islamic republic governed under the constitution of 1979, which codified Islamic principles of government. The constitution was revised in 1989, expanding presidential powers and eliminating the position of prime minister. The president, who is popularly elected for a four-year …term, serves as the head of government. The supreme leader, who effectively serves as the chief of state, is appointed for life by an Islamic religious advisory board (the Guardian Council) that works in close conjunction with the government. The legislative branch consists of the 270-seat Islamic consultative assembly, or parliament, whose members are elected by popular vote. Although Iran has no legal political parties, there are at least three important political groups, as well as a number of pressure groups, some of which have been suppressed by the government.

Iran has a theocracy, a government controlled by the culture's religious leader or leaders. Other have said that it is a thinly disguised military junta or dictatorship.
Iran's government is defined as a theocratic republic. A theocracyis ruled by religious leaders who are believed to be acting onbehalf of their deity. A republic is run by a democraticallyelected leader. In Iran, the government is run by an electedpresident, parliament, local councils and an "Assemb…ly of Experts"-all of which must follow Islamic principles. The government in Iran is a unitary state with a presidentialsystem. The capital of Iran is Tehran, and has a population of76.42 million. Because of its theocratic elements, Iran is typically considered anIlliberal Democracy (as opposed to Liberal Democracies like theUnited States, France, Germany, et al.). That is to say that whilethere are certain trappings of democracy, they are not sufficientto create a truly democratic atmosphere. Several things that Iranhas which make it a democracy include: regular voting periods,different candidates, and different parties with conflictinginterests. Several things that Iran has, which preclude it frombeing a Liberal Democracy include: suppression of politicalexpression, unelected leadership (in the form of the Supreme Leaderand his council), repression of political parties, widespreadvoting fraud, restrictions on the freedom of speech and in thepress, required loyalty oaths (this prevents members of Parliamentfrom speaking out on issues for minority constituencies which havebeen harassed by the government), and unbalanced campaigning (wherethe "desirable" candidate can slander other candidates, but cannothimself be publicly slandered to the same extent). Iran has a mixed econmy. (MORE)
Like 32 other countries (most of them Muslim-majority), Iran views Israel as an illegitimate state due to it being created out of land that was, for times prior to the British mandate, ruled by the Ottoman empire (a nominally Muslim-majority empire). That a non-Muslim state was created out of land t…hat had once been under Muslim rule irks the religious Muslims in these countries, since the religion dictates that such land as Israel's is, in perpetuity, part of the Dar-ul Islam ("Land of Islam"), a similar concept to the term "Christendom" (or the land in which Christianity is or was the majority religious belief).. Thus, since Iran's government is one that is dominated by the laws of the mullahs who hold jurisprudential supremacy (an "Islamic republic"), it makes sense for Iran to follow along this party line in classifying Israel as an illegitimate state and supporting Palestinian and Lebanese Islamists who also don't recognize the state for ethnoreligious reasons.. In addition, Islam views Jerusalem as a holy city due to the Dome of the Rock and other Islamic structures on the Temple Mount; this is compounded by the fact that a number of religious Israeli Jews support any measure to take over the Temple Mount and rebuild the Jewish Temple (which was last destroyed by the Romans in AD 70) that once stood where the Dome of the Rock and al-Aqsa Mosque once stood. Thus, the Dome of the Rock figures as a frontispiece on many Palestinian Islamist organizations' flags, and Iran has long declared its wish for the restoration of the region that is now Israel to Muslim rule; this was an avowed goal of the Ayatollah Khomeini when Iran tried to take over Iraq in the latter part of the Iran-Iraq War of the 1980s.. At best, its another form of religious territorial chauvinism and irredentism, similar to the Christendom concept.. Of course, this reason, shared to lesser extremes by other non-Arab majority-Muslim states, differs from both the reasons of opposition from majority Arab-Muslim states (who see it as both a religious and ethnocultural issue) and the reasons of opposition from non-Arab non-Muslim states: countries like Taiwan and Cuba (a Stalinist state which maintains a dogma of anti-Zionism) may point to further errata such as the assertion that Israel has continually and repeatedly failed to uphold its obligations under the United Nations Charter as it declared it would do in UN resolution 273 which officially invited Israel to become a member of the UN. These obligations include ending illegal settlements and allowing refugees to return or be compensated for their losses; however, Israel abstained from doing the former for the nationalist sake of accomplishing a Jewish-majoritarian state and abstained from the latter due to the view that an Arab-majority state carved out of the envisioned Eretz Israel would be the most pertinent obligation to be fulfilled by Israel to former Arab residents of the region (compared to an "incomplete" approach of merely paying off refugees for land attained).

Iran is an Islamic Republic - Explained Iran is currently ruled by an "Islamic Republic" it has the basic structure of a republician government - like the US or France - but with many powers reserved for the "Supreme Leader" who is the ultimate authority on many matters - almost but not quite a re…ligious dictator. There is a Parliament of elected MP's (like the lower house in other systems) but instead of a Senate there are two appointed councils Guardian Council - kind of like a supreme court but instead of all judges it is half Clerics (experts on Islamic thought) and half Judges (experts on laws) and the "Expediency Council" which deals with debates between the guardians and the Parliament and advises the Supreme Leader. All of these councils and several others appoint each other and some are elected in a complex system of checks and balances. It all works out as a limited democracy with strong Islamic leanings in moral and legal thought. Additional Thoughts on the Islamic Republic Iran is an Islamic Republic which means that is a theocratic government. Its true nature is fascism. An unelected military junta hides behind an Islamic clergy with a poorly or aged Ayatollah as a mere figurehead and a powerless president that the people elect. (MORE)
The United States does not want to harm the people of Iran but what it does want is a democratic government to be present in Iran that is not dominated by Islamic clergy and is not a theocracy. In addition, the United States does not Iran to manufacture any more nuclear weapons or support terrorist …groups in Iraq. It wishes to have a peaceful relationship with Iran if Iran follows these demands. A war, in my opinion, is not always the right thing to use in a time of crisis. A fascist or communist might use weapons to get what he wants, but a citizen of a democracy will use talk and conversation in order to get what he desires. Iran is itself a theocracy run by Sh'ia Islamic clergy members similar to that of Vatican City (a small country that has more ruling in religious matters in Catholicism than those of politics.) In comparison to Vatican City, Iran has more ruling in religious and political matters than Vatican City as millions of people are under the rule of the Iranian Theocracy. Peace in the Middle East is a vital and somewhat impossible thing to accomplish but it will take time, patience, and money to preserve institutions there valued by all of the world's democratic nations, big and small. The United States is not opposed to Islam or has any discontentment with Islam but rather wishes to remove the threat of Islamofascism that fuels the spirits of thousands of terrorists in the Middle East as well as all over the world to invoke violence on a people. Islam itself is a peaceful religion based on the Prophet Mohammad's teachings and, like all other religions, values peace and care in the world. However, it is not right for a person, a people, or whole nations themselves to be intimidated by the demands of terrorists. Religion itself is the valued institution in nearly all of the world's citizens' lives, except perhaps atheists and agnostics. Religion cannot be erased nor can it be deprived from its followers so is the latter in Iran. The Iranian people are a fair and ancient people, having originated from the Ancient Persians under Cyrus the Great following the Neo-Babylonian Empire. (MORE)

Answer 1 The Shah of Iran was a friend of the United States and was very cooperative regarding policy between Iran and the U.S. It is counterproductive to label the leadership as simply A, B, or C. What is important to realize is Iran has the third largest oil reserve in the world. The style of… government in Iran is constantly changing depending on who is maneuvering for control at any given time. The Shah stole billions of dollars from the people of Iran and Jimmy Carter gave him refuge (a favor) in the United States. As a result, Iranian students captured 50 Americans as a way to ask for the Shah to be returned to face justice. Thirty years later, the government has evolved from a corrupt weak democracy under the Shah to strict religious rule. Answer 2 The above answer, while detailing the writer's personal view on Iranian History does not actually answer the question. The Shah of Iran ruled as a Constitutional Monarch with very broad powers. The Parliament that existed during his rule was subject to corrupt elections and many personal appointments. He was involved in much of the country's rulership and directed the SAVAK or Secret Iranian Police who were known for torturing dissidents. (MORE)

Iran is an Islamic theocracy with most of its laws based on Sharia law of that religion. Iranian imams (clergy) can overrule/override secular legal decisions.
There is no dictatorship in Iran. Iran is a democracy based on Islamic law. Islamic law restricts freedom of pornography in society. Most Iranians are Muslims and agree to these rules. Some of the people of Iran do not agree to these rules and want more freedom.
English speaking people usually pronounce it - ( I - ran ) The rest of the world pronounces it - ( Ee - Ron ) That is also how Iranians pronounce it.

Theoretically, the government of an independent State cannot be controlled by another. That's what national sovereignty and independence is all about. This can become blurred when the economy of one is highly dependent on the behaviour of the other, for friendly or malign reasons.
It is doubtful that there is a peaceful way to change the Iranian Government. If the Green Revolution of 2009 is any indication, the Republican Guard (Iran's Army) has no qualms about firing on the civilian population in defense of the Supreme Council of Ayatollahs and the President. The rights to p…eacefully assemble and to petition the Iranian government for grievances do not exist. Probably the most peaceful way to change the government would be to allow moderates to actually change the direction of the country (like Ayatollah Rafsanjani and former President Khatami). (MORE)
On paper, it should be. Iran presents itself as a Republic. However, considering how violently Iran has repressed its citizens (especially during the Green Revolution of 2009), it would seem that the Ayatollahs will rule regardless of how their people feel.
Iran declared the protests illegal. Then the protesters were met with extreme violence by the governments soldiers. The most violent protest Iran has seen according to The Wall Street Journal. 2 were killed and dozens were injured and arrested.
The Shah of Iran abdicated because he felt that he was no longerable to hold back the Islamic Revolution; it was too widespread. Ithad become apparent by Black Friday (September 8, 1978), that therewould be a confrontation between the Shah and the Revolutionariesof all stripes. The Shah ultimately d…id not believe that he couldeffectively suppress the Revolutionaries. The Shah's first place of exile was Egypt in early 1979, followedby Morocco, the Bahamas, and Mexico, each for a few months.However, he fled to the USA towards the end of the year for medicaltreatment. That is when Ruhollah Musavi Khomeini comes to ran androse to power. He ordered an attack on the us embassy and thetaking of American hostages in order to demand the extradition ofthe Shah (so that he could be tried by the Iranian people andexecuted). President Jimmy Carter was seriously considering handingthe Shah back to Iran, but thankfully, Anwar Sadat, the presidentof Egypt, accepted the Shah as a permanent exile in his country.
