Just to fix the name of the academy. Its not the Academy of Sciences, but
"Iranian Academy of Persian Language and Literature".

About the collation default order, I guess we can't change that. Arabic
seems to be the dominant language, and it may be interesting for you to
know that the default ordering is also wrong for many of the European
countries. For Latin, it's an ordering that makes sense to English
speaking people, I guess.
