In the name of God - Humanoid robot [PDF]. Apparently Iran "is the strongest represented foreign nation, with 50 teams at the world championships [RoboCup 2006]. Six of these teams are made up solely of women." Also participating in the humanoid league: the arabot [PDF, scroll down], [avi-video] from the United Arab Emirates.
