Let's start a discussion regarding the topic of the GCC or the Arabian Peninsula unifying into 1 big country. Notice that there is a difference between the actual political borders of the Arabian Peninsula and the geographical borders which also consists of Jordan, Southern Iraq and parts of Syria. How foreseeable is it and what is needed in order for it to become a reality? I will give my own opinion later if this discussion evolves into something serious or interesting. For now I will just leave it to others to comment on. I am mostly interested in hearing users from the Arabian Peninsula and their opinion regarding this. Which on PDF translates to users from KSA mainly as there are not many active Arab users on PDF to begin with let alone users from Kuwait, UAE, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman, Yemen etc. I actually think that there is none. In the meantime I will just write some short facts. Only based on the current POLITICAL borders of the Arabian Peninsula mind you. Area: 3,200,937 km2 If a country it would be the 7th biggest in the world. Population: Around 80,000,000 million as of 2014. If a country it would be the 16th most populous country. Economy: GDP (nominal) $1,800-1,900 billion as of late 2014. If a country it would have around the 10th biggest economy (GDP nominal) GDP per capita as of late 2014: Around $35,000 excluding impoverished Yemen. If a country, excluding impoverished Yemen, it would be in the top 30 and among the richest considering size and population. Let's not even discuss oil and gas reserves, natural riches in general, the strategic location, access to the Red Sea, Gulf, Arabian Sea and wider Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea through the nearby Suez Canal. Let's not forget the economic prognosis that consistently place GCC economies as among the fastest growing and their GDP per capita as among the highest in the world a long time into the future. Or the endless potential on almost all areas that are yet to even remotely be fulfilled due to political and social reasons mainly. Try to look at this scenario not necessarily from the current glasses as of 2014 but in 10-20 years time for instance where political regimes, laws etc. can have changed tremendously. This could also lead to regional unifications elsewhere in the Arab world. I think that this will be the way forward. No trolling please as that's not the propose of this thread. @Arabian Legend @Yzd Khalifa @JUBA @BLACKEAGLE @Hazzy997 @Mosamania @Bubblegum Crisis @Awadd @Full Moon @Tihamah @Mootaz-khelifi @MooshMoosh @Mahmoud_EGY @Halimi @Hadbani @Haitham @burning_phoneix @FARSOLDIER @farag @Altamimi @Arabi @agentny17 @Chai @Tunisian Marine Corps @1000 @Algeria @Dino @fahd tamimi @Frogman @Hechmi Seif @Naifov @Andalusi Knight @thefreesyrian @Rakan.SA @tyrant @Ahmed Jo @ebray etc.
