That Middle Eastern nation with absurd religious demands!

What if I told you there was a Middle Eastern nation that has religious leaders (and part of its population) calling for:
Segregating men and women so as for them to be walking on different sides of the street
Segregating public transport by making women sit at the end of the buses
Segregating students with people of different ethnic origins not mixing in classes
Ban women from advertising boards
Eliminate references reproduction and contraception from national schoolbooks
Enforce women’s dress codes (mainly very conservative clothing)
Seek government funding as their working-age males do nothing but study religious texts all day
Answer to this quizz (and the non-existent) crosswords is provided at the bottom of the page.

Answer: ISRAEL!
