This is gonna get a lot of flame comments, but I just sort of drew a comparison here.
Skyrim is similar to Israel in that it's got a lot of racist, nationalistic people in it. There are also issues of who the real natives of Skyrim are (Falmer, Dwemer), etc. Meanwhile, Skyrim has done a lot of needless harm to neighboring groups (Forsworn, Dunmer).
Iran is like the Thalmor in that the Israelites (Nords) hate them and are eventually going to go to war with them. In addition, Iran hasn't "defeated" the USA but it has posed a significant threat to the USA and it's imperialism. Meanwhile, the Thalmor pose a threat to the Empire. The Thalmor and the Iranian government both have a sense of racial superiority (Iran literally means Arian).
And of course, the Empire is like the USA because it's also full of racist nationalistic people, and wants to support Skyrim (Israel) but can't always do it because of the state of the rest of the world. --- Personally, I like burritos better.

TIL Israel is a US state/territory and that Iran wants to undo all of cosmic existence. --- Rebel is pretty much a planet, pulling all sorts of moons and satellites his way, among them good, bad, foolish, trollish, and everything else - SeaArrKing
