Saudi Arabia

A large and oil-rich desert country in the Middle East, taking up a large part of the Arabian Peninsula. Consists of Arabia under the rule of the House of Saud or Saudis: confusingly, is usually abbreviated to “Saudi” rather than “Arabia”.

An absolute monarchy, Saudi Arabia tends towards the fundamentalist Wahhabi sect of Sunni Islam and has many reactionary religious laws that are controversial on the world stage. It also has custody of the Muslim holy cities of Mecca and Medina. Terrorist group al-Qaeda's original raison d'etre was to try and eject American troops from what they see as Muslim holy ground.

Chris developed something of a reputation for a Captain Ahab-style obsession with destroying Saudi Arabia, invariably having it meet a horrible fate in any of his stories.

None native-born that we know of.

Several members post from Saudi, including Avicenna and (obviously) Paul in Saudi.
