Yemen, is a state of Asia, located in the extreme southern offshoot of the Arabian Peninsula, and bears in the name a semantic and etymological misunderstanding that reveals the importance attributed to this country since ancient times. If Yemen, in fact, indicates what is “to the right”, more properly “to the right of the East”, the fundamental cardinal point of the Arab reference system, the name of the country did not seem to indicate to the ancients that its simply being the southern part of Arabia. Over time, that word has ended up taking on the meaning of “happy”, “lucky”, “prosperous”. Precisely for the great availability of resources with which the country was provided (especially the essences of incense and myrrh) and for its strategic position, overlooking the Arabian Sea and a stop on the merchant routes to the East, the land of Southern Arabia had been baptized by the Greeks with the name of Eudaimon Arabia, which later became Arabia Felix among the Romans, and thus handed down. Of that ancient splendor, enriched by the passage of various civilizations that stayed here, there are countless vestiges scattered throughout the territory: from the fortifications in the desert to the thousand-year old historic center of the capital, from the inscriptions himyarite to the ruins of the ancient Sabaean kingdoms. In the year 2000, after a long process for the conquest of unity and independence, Yemen is perhaps the only Arab country whose economy revolves around the oil fields discovered in its territory, but whose limited presence did not fuel that formidable process of enrichment and progressive growth that has instead characterized other oil states. Its population is, in fact, considered the poorest in the Arabian Peninsula, according to international statistics, anchored to the values ​​of a very conservative tradition, without opportunities for outlets and professional growth. To this picture, which denounces the need for extensive interventions, is added the thorny question of relations between clan and tribe (the true ancient soul of the country’s demographic fabric), some of which (especially those of the North) have become the protagonists of sensational protests for the improvement of the living conditions of the local population, culminating in the kidnapping of foreign tourists. Despite this difficult internal situation, Yemen has committed itself to a structural reorganization of the country, already undertaken at the end of the twentieth century. A further stimulus for the resolution of tribal conflicts and internal recovery comes from the growing need to improve international relations, also compromised by suspicions of connivance with Islamic terrorist organizations, which have exacerbated the isolation of the state. According to COUNTRYAAH, Yemen is a nation in Western Asia, the capital city of which is Sanaa. The latest population of Yemen is 29,825,975.

The climate is mainly tropical, hot and dry. The temperature remains around high throughout the year: in Aden the average values ​​are between 24 ºC in January and 32 ºC in June, but during the summer they sometimes reach 50 ºC in the shade. Only as you proceed towards the western edge does the altitude mitigate the temperature: this is one of the most hospitable regions of the country, precisely called Serat or “cool place”; in Sanʽā there are maximum averages of 20 ºC and minimum even of -5 ºC. Even rainfall, influenced by the monsoons, has different regimes for the different areas of the country: they are abundant (800-1000 mm per year) on the plateau and in the mountainous areas, where in any case they are concentrated in the summer months, while the internal basins present characteristics of more or less marked dryness.
