    7. @AlecDalek: Actually, i think they have too much to care… LOL

      But you do have to give them props on the way they spend money. They are actually being very smart. Rather than rely on oil, they are investing significant amounts of that money into becoming a premium tourist spot, and creating tons of jobs in the process.

      At the rate they are going, (assuming they keep it up) I daresay they will be able to sustain the country entirely off the tourism even after all of their oil wells run dry…
