Persia is located in the center of the map adjacent to each of the other three civilizations. While this allows Persia to attack any of the CZ areas (except Africa) without teleporting. However this also means that Persia is often in the position of facing all three civilizations directly, while each of the other civilizations has some geographic distance from at least one other.

Persia's specialty of increased construction speed helps when building your resource mines and upgrading buildings to meet growth and evolution requirements.
