Why is Kuwait considered one of the richest countries in the world?

Kuwait is a small, oil-rich country nestling at the top of the Persian Gulf. Its neighbours are Saudi Arabia to the south, Iraq to the north, and Iran to the east. This low-lying desert land is mainly sandy and barren. There are no lakes or rivers in Kuwait, so distilled sea water is the main source of fresh water. Kuwait has large oil fields, and huge profits have been made by exporting oil, making it one ofthe richest countries in the world. Kuwait is believed to have been part of an early civilization in the 3rd millennium BC and to have traded with Mesopotamian cities. In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, the sheikdom belonged to the fringes of the Ottoman Empire. Kuwait obtained British protection in 1897. ln 1961, Kuwait became independent. Kuwait is best described as a city state. The capital Kuwait City has been attracting Bedouin people from the Arabian interior, in search of a sea breeze and an escape from recurring drought, for centuries. Today the metropolis is still an oasis in a land of desert plains. In 1990, Kuwaitwas in vaded by Iraq, but in 1991, the Iraqis were driven out by troops from the United Kingdom and United States.
