It occupies the large fertile area (green) that lies between the Tigris and the Euphrates (down right) rivers, an area formerly called Mesopotamia. The large lake at far right is Lake Razazah, with the smaller Habbaniyah at lower right. At bottom right is the southern part of Lake Tharthar. The northern tip of the Persian Gulf is seen at top left.
