United Arab Emirates?
There are seven separate emirates that make up the country: Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras al-Khaimah, Sharjah, and Umm al-Quwa. The capital is Abu Dhabi and much of the tourism is centered there. Dubai is also at the forefront of the tourism world in the UAE.
Within in each emirate, there is a monarch who holds power. And they monarchs chose who rule the country. It's a different political system than most out there.
the UAE is a country
that's a great question..don't think most people even know much about the Emirates, let alone its location (lol). As the last poster said, the UAE consists of states but unlike the US they have a monarchy overthere. Don't think the majority of citizens there are happy because most are treated as second class citizens. I heard foreigners are treated there very well...better than their own peole (go figure!)
I never thought about that...it's not uncommon for countries to treat tourists better than the locals. It doesn't make it right, but it does happen.
