This paper provides a brief overview of the United Arab Emirates, a federation of seven independent states lying along the east-central coast of the Arabian Peninsula, formerly called the Trucial States (from the Perpetual Maritime Truce signed with Great Britain in 1853), focusing on the demographics and economy of this country.

From the Paper:

"The states that compose the U.A.E. occupy a rather vaguely defined area formerly known as the Pirate Coast, as well as 50 miles of coast on the Gulf of Oman and are bounded on the north by Qatar and the Persian Gulf, on the east by the Gulf of Oman, and on the south and west by Saudi Arabia. The total area of the country is about 30,000 square miles ().
The population grew rapidly in the 1970s and 1980s, largely because of alien workers, and was estimated (1999) at 2,344,400. Of these, 19 percent are Emiri, 23 percent are other Arabs and Iranians, 50 percent are South Asians (primarily Pakistanis), and 8 percent are Westerners and East Asians (U.S. Department of State website)."
