Need as many of you as possible. What are the first three things that come to mind when you think of Iran?

This is serious. Personal annotations not needed. Think of if I asked what were the first three things that come to mind if I say Germany - most would say beer, brauts, and Nazis or something of that nature. French - cheese, wine, eiffel tower. So what three things come to mind when you think of Iran?
