Hi, I'm having trouble determining which form is correct:

For example:

- If the world was run by idiots...
- If the world was ran by idiots...

I think the first is correct? If the second is not correct, what modifications may make it correct? (When would using ran be acceptable in the sentence context?)

Many thanks!
