The United Arab Emirates is a federation of seven independent states located in the southeastern corner of the Arabian Peninsula. It is in a very tough geopolitical neighborhood. Most of the country is desert but the UAE’s proven oil reserves make up almost one-tenth of the world’s total oil, with about ninety percent of the UAE’s oil in the emirate of Abu Dhabi.
The culture of the UAE is a blend of traditional and modern elements, which is open to many types of influences and change. The religion of Islam and the heritage of a traditional, tribal Arab society form the basis of a stable and conservative social structure. Censorship of media is routine.
