Did you know that...?
- Saudi Arabia is an absolute monarchy, which means that the monarch has full control over the country, though he must comply with Islamic law. There are 7,000 Saudi princes, enabling the royal family to dominate all areas of government.
- If you forget your toothbrush in Saudi Arabia just grab a twig from the miswak tree (also called the toothbrush tree) and start chewing. Miswak contains antiseptics and fluoride, and has been used for centuries.
- There are virtually no rivers or lakes in Saudi Arabia, but there are plenty of wadis. These are naturally occurring valleys created by the run-off of water after heavy rain. They're bone dry most of the time and then became instant torrents.
- Before 1938, Saudi Arabia was one of the world's poorest countries with slim pickings from low-scale farming and pilgrimage income. Then it struck oil - a lot of oil, about a fifth of the world's total proven reserves. That changed things a bit...!
- There's no written law to stop women from driving in Saudi Arabia, but you need a local licence to drive - and those are never issued to women. Effectively then, it's the only country in the world where women are not allowed to drive.
- Saudi Arabia is one of the very few countries that hasn't signed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, claiming that it violates its Islamic Sharia law. Punishments include stoning, amputation and beheading by sword. Reasons to behave.
- In Saudi Arabia oil is cheaper than water. A liter of oil costs about US$0.13, but a litre of mineral water is twice as much at US$0.26.
