Embargoed Azeroth

Until I saw this article, I hadn't realized that any country with which the US had a trade embargo was prohibited from adventuring throughout Azeroth according to World of Warcraft's terms of service.  Even formerly embargoed countries, such as Iraq and Iran, remain specifically banned from playing WoW.  This doesn't mean that there are no players in embargoed countries - only that they may be permanently banned whenever Blizzard takes the time to enforce these rules.  It's an interesting look at the barricades between some players and the virtual world most of us take for granted.
