It is a federation constituted by 7 emirates, of which Abu Dhabi is the greatest (around the 88% of the territory) and the homonym city is the capital of the state, but Dubai is the greatest city (around 1.000.000 of inhabitants).
It is the ex Pirates' Coast, British protectorate up to 1971, that overlooks the Arabic Gulf with an edge of desert.
The population is constituted for around 2/3 by males, because of its great immigration of foreign work forces. In the great oasis of Buraimi tomatoes, dates and citrus fruit are cultivated, but true wealth is in the subsoil and under the sea and it is represented by the layers of gas and above all of oil, principal source of export.
The Emirates offer privileged fiscal conditions. Dubai is a cosmopolitan city in which there are many traffics around the Creek, the ancient commercial Souks and futuristic architectures, especially in the zone of the Jumeirah and along the coast of the gulf Arabic, where rise the Emirateses Towers and the most fantastic hotel of the world with its unmistakable form to sail: the Burj to the Arab.
