The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a large part of the Arabian subcontinent with 2.250.000 km2.
Due to its size, Saudi Arabia shows diversity in it's topography, vegetation, climates and it's Natural Resources ( not just Oil).
The cultivable land of Saudi Arabia is 48.9 million hectares, representing 22.7% of the total area of the Kingdom.
Saudi Arabia doesn't classified it's citizens by skin color or race, as some other countries do, Even though it has diverse population ( not like in the common Western understanding of diverse population or some racial ...tho, Saudis have a high level of awareness of themselves as Arabs and Strong connection with their relatives in other Arab countries).
the king :
Saudis children during the National Day haha:
half of the population or more are residents and illegal residents (in the official statistics (2010) they are 29.6% but we all know that is not true) some of them are refugees and other are settlement of illegal immigrants.
the pre Saudi Kingdom history is part of the history of the Arabian subcontinent.

haha i bet you didn't expect to see what you saw here :P
I'll keep this alive with more pictures and information.
Great pictures indeed.
I rushed by the pictures of the King. I'm as anti-monarchy as I am anti-religion.
LOL, so far I support the stability of KSA and I like this king (tho, I hated king Fahd).
I support a modern state with modern constitution, institutions and laws. this is what I hope Saudi Arabia become in the near future.
I like their architecture, the nabataeans were amazing!
