Wikipedia on Iranian Americans

Iranian Americans or Persian Americans, are Americans of Iranian ancestry or people possessing Iranian and American dual citizenship. Iranian Americans are among the highest educated people in the United States.[10][11] They have historically excelled in business, academia, the sciences, arts, and entertainment – but have traditionally shied away from participating in American politics and other civic activities.[12]

Based on a 2012 announcement from “National Organization for Civil Registration”, which is an organization of the Ministry of Interior of Iran, the United States has the highest number of Iranians outside the country, and the highest number after Iran itself.[6]
