I just read about Oman. Here is what I learned: Their government is a constitutional monarchy and their head of state is the sultan. The countries that border them are U.A.E., Saudi Arabia, and Yemen. Iran is across the Gulf of Oman. They follow Ibadhi Islam and their language is Arabic. In the 1500's the Portuguese conquered this country. Their economy develops on oil but their reserves are smaller than other Arabian countries. Does anyone live there? What do you know about Oman? Have you ever been there?

Ye i live there.....they do not require the need of oil for survival....cuz they have other market resources and only their economy was unharmed during the recession when adjacent U.A.E. and other countries fell.....
