Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE)

UNITED ARAB EMIRATES (UAE) (AL IMARAT AL-ARABIYA AL-MUTTAHIDA): POPULATION: 3.5 MILLION. A FEDERATION OF 7 SHEIKDOMS, UNDER BRITISH PROTECTION UNTIL 1971, THE (UAE) HAS ROCKETED IN A GENERATION FROM RURAL AND POOR, TO URBAN AND OIL-RICH. THE MEMBER STATES ARE ABU DHABI, AJMAN, DUBAI, FUJAIRAH, RAS-AL-KHAIMAH, SHARJAH, & UMM-AL-QIWAIN. A FAVORITE DESTINATION FOR TOURISTS TO THE ARABIAN PENINSULAR, THE (UAE) IS NOTABLE FOR ITS LARGE POPULATION OF GUEST EX-PATRIOT WORKERS, MANY FROM INDIA AND PAKISTAN, AND ITS GENERALLY PROGRESSIVE ATTITUDE TOWARD WOMEN. THE (UAE) COVERS AN AREA OF 83,600 SQ KM AND ITS CAPITAL CITY IS ABU DHABI. THE OFFICIAL LANGUAGE IS ARABIC. SEE ATTACHED MAP - - "FDB-MAP."

Dubai can either refer to one of the seven Emirates that constitute the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the eastern Arabian Peninsula, or that Emirate's main city, sometimes called "Dubai city" to distinguish it from the Emirate. The modern Emirate of Dubai was created with the formation of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in 1971. However, written accounts documenting the existence of the city have existed at least 150 years prior to the formation of the (UAE). Dubai shares legal, political, military and economic functions with the other emirates within a federal framework, although each Emirate has jurisdiction over some functions such as civic law enforcement and provision and upkeep of local facilities. Dubai has the largest population and is the second largest Emirate by area, after Abu Dhabi. As of 2007, 800 new residents were setting up home in Dubai every day. With Abu Dhabi, it is one of only two Emirates to possess veto power over critical matters of national importance in the (UAE). Dubai has been ruled by the Al Maktoum dynasty since 1833. The city's current ruler, Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum is also the Vice President and Prime Minister of the (UAE).
