Iran is a minor country in the Middle East. Iran is bordered to the west by Iraq and Turkey, to the north by the Soviet Union and to the east by Afghanistan and British Raj. In 1936, Iran starts as a minor Non-Aligned nation with a small industry, a small army and 2 research slots.
After the October Revolution, the Soviet Union tried to establish a puppet government in northern Iran, similar to Mongolia and Sinkiang like the "Soviet Republic of Gilan" or after WWII the "Azerbaijan People's Government" and the "Republic of Mahabad". In 1921 there was a reaction to the growing influence of the coup with the support of the UK, which eventually led to the change to the Pahlavi Dynasty.
Although Iran declared itself neutral at the beginning of the war, there was sympathy for the Axis powers, but because of its strategic importance after the beginning of the war between the Soviet Union and Germany, the Anglo-Soviet invasion of Iran occurred in 1941.
