HISTORY
Historyof the United Arab Emirates. ... TheUAEconsists of seven
emirates and was founded on 2 December 1971 as a federation. Six
of the seven emirates (Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al
Quwain and Fujairah) combined on that date. The seventh, Ras Al
Khaimah, joined the federation on 10 February 1972.
Before oil was discovered in the1950sthe UAE's economy was
dependent on fishing and a declining pearl industry. But
since1962, when Abu Dhabi became the first of the emirates to
begin exporting oil, the country's society and economy have been
transformed.
The United Arab Emirates, in the eastern part of the Arabian
Peninsula, extends along part of the Gulf ofOmanand the southern
coast of the Persian Gulf. The nation is the size of Maine. Its
neighbors areSaudi Arabiato the west and south,Qatarto the
north, andOmanto the east.

Arab Emirates have always advocated freedom of religion.

of the locals are. There are about 8% Hindu, 5% Christians, and
some Buddhist andSikhminorities.

which allMuslimsmust follow: the Profession of Faith, Prayer,
Charity, Fasting, and the Pilgrimage to Makkah.
Islamis the official religion of the UAE and the majority of UAE
nationals areMuslim. However, the government is a lot more
liberal in this respect than some of its neighbours; the right to
freedom of religion is respected, and there is very little
interference in the practice of other religions in Dubai.

POLITICS
Politicsof the United ArabEmiratestakes place in a framework
of a federal, presidential, absolute monarchy. The Unite
ArabEmirates(UAE) is a federation of seven constituent
monarchies: theEmiratesof Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah,
Ras al-Khaimah, Sharjah, and Umm al-Quwain.
The UAE's judicial system is derived from the civil law system and
Sharia law. The court system consists of civil courts and Sharia
courts.
Administratively, the UAE is a federation of seven emirates, each
with its own ruler. Under the provisional constitution of 1971, each
emirate reserves considerable powers, including control over
mineral rights (notably oil) and revenues. In this milieu, federal
powers have developed slowly as each Emirate already had its
own existing institutions of government prior to the countrys
official foundation.

ECONOMY
The economy of the United Arab Emirates is the second
largest in the Arab world (after Saudi Arabia), with a gross
domestic product (GDP) of $570 billion (AED2.1 trillion) in
2014. The United Arab Emirates has been successfully
diversifying its economy.
More than 85% of the UAE's economy was based on the oil
exports in 2009. While Abu Dhabi and other UAE emirates
have remained relatively conservative in their approach to
diversification, Dubai, which has far smaller oil reserves,
was bolder in its diversification policy.[13] In 2011, oil
exports accounted for 77% of the UAE's state budget.
Dubai suffered from a significant economic crisis in 20072010 and was bailed out by Abu Dhabi's oil wealth.
