After declaring victory over ISIS, Iraq returns to being an idyllic paradise
BAGHDAD — After retaking Mosul and declaring victory over the Islamic State, Iraq has returned to its previous state of utopia, sources confirmed today.
“Iraq is now liberated from the scourge of ISIS,” Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said. “Now we can focus on the positive aspects of Iraq, like the low taxes on highway repair, waste disposal, and women's education.”
“We also have the world's best police force,” al-Abadi said. “Look at how many criminals they've packed into our prisons. They are honest as well. Over the last decade there have been zero convictions of police corruption. In fact, you can't find a single witness!”
Recently added to the list of “Developing Nations” by the International Association of Realtors, Iraq has the world's lowest homeless population and is the easiest place to adopt stray dogs.
Although parts of the Iraqi economy are stagnant, there are some great jobs for Iraqis. Politician remains the most lucrative option, followed by bodyguard and bomb-maker.
