How does the Iranian government work?

How much authority does the Iranian President have? Basically I'd like to know more about the Iranian government system? How does the guardian counsel work? Is it sort of like a supreme court? Does it come up with it's own laws? How often does it get involved in non-religious issues? Also, how much political discussion is allowed in Iran? I know the Iranian constitution allows free speech "except where it contradicts Islam" Does that forbid criticism of the guardian counsel? What about the president?
