What other year are we in?

The official Iranian year (1384) is according to the Islamic solar calendar. Add 1180 years and you get (2564) the year based on the Shahanshahi calendar introduced by Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi in 1976 in recognition of Iran's pre-Islamic past. The royal calendar was scrapped during the 1978-79 revolution to placate the clergy who wanted to reinstate the Islamic calendar.
