    Well, I guess I’m not the first. I wish I had a guess that was different from everyone else’s, but I would have to say Iran too.

  • You are all indeed correct: the answer is Iran. Perhaps it was too easy. The next post will involve some simple manipulations of this and other maps of Iran, which I hope will prove useful. We’ll see.
