When I try to search  graphic designers and put location as Iran, It says No matching location found.

This is not entirely unexpected. Iran is under various sanctions and probably US companies are not allowed to do any business over there.

Yeah I know about the sanctions I'm not from the stone age Smiley Very Happy 
I just thought that since upwork is an open marketplace it wouldn't submit to that 

but thanks anyway!

Then why were you all flabbergasted that a US-based company can not do business with individuals in a sanctioned country?
