What achievements of Mesopotamia relate to 'The Wizard of Oz'?
An agricultural civilization that is centered on a large city ruled by an absolute ruler are achievements that characterize Mesopotamia and that are found in "The Wizard of Oz."
Specifically, Mesopotamia is the ancient geographic region between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers and corresponding to parts of modern-day Iran, Iraq, Syria and Turkey. It had the advantage of fertile land and space in which to expand. It ended up as home to the early Sumerian civilization and to the great Akkadian, Assyrian and Babylonian Empires. It did what it did through centralized rule over the surrounding agricultural and undeveloped lands by an absolute ruler in an opulent, well-guarded city. The last sentence describes the absolute rule over the lesser developed lands of Oz by the Wizard from his lavish Emerald Palace in the sparkling Emerald City.
