Kuwait Overview

Kuwait, Kuwait, officially Arabic Daulat al-Kuwait, German State of Kuwait, state on the Arabian Peninsula with (2019) 4.2 million residents; The capital is Kuwait.

Location

Kuwait borders Iraq to the north and west, Saudi Arabia to the south and the Persian Gulf to the east.

Kuwait comprises a gently sloping coastal plain at the northwest end of the Persian Gulf, next to it the alluvial islands Warbah and Bubiyan (with 863 km 2 the largest island) off the Shatt al-Arab as well as the island Failaka, which has been inhabited since ancient times. Chains of hills running from northeast to southwest subdivide the otherwise monotonous sand and gravel deserts. Since there are no rivers and lakes, drinking water has to be obtained from seawater desalination plants or imported.

Climate and vegetation

With the exception of the winter months, the climate is hot and rainless, and very humid on the coast. The low rainfall (an average of 100 mm per year) falls in winter. In January, temperatures can drop below freezing. The climate and soils create a desert area; around 10% of the country are steppe areas that are used as nomadic pastures.

Population

Religion

The constitution determines Islam to be the state religion, but also guarantees the right to freely practice religion based on non-Islamic beliefs. – More recent surveys by various institutions on religious affiliation show different results: Around 74–78% of the total population (including foreigners) are Muslims. The ruling house, the Kuwaitis and the other Arabs living in Kuwait profess Sunni Islam (mostly the Maliki school of law). A strong Muslim minority (around 30%) are the Shiites living in Kuwait. Important non-Islamic minorities are the Christians (between approx. 13 and 17% of the total population), Hindus (under 3 to 10%) and Buddhists (up to 3%). The strongest religious group among Christians are the followers of the Catholic Church (the figures vary between just under 3 and over 10% of the population, represented by the Vicariate Apostolic Northern Arabia, seat: Bahrain [Manama], since 2012). There are also believers from various Eastern Churches (Coptic, Syrian, Greek Orthodox, Armenian); there are few Protestants and Anglicans.

Industry

Major industries are oil processing (three state refineries in Mina Abdulla, Mina al-Ahmadi and Ash Shuaybah) and natural gas processing. Ash Shuaybah’s fertilizer plants produce ammonia and ureas. Chlorine factories process the waste from seawater desalination plants into chlorine, soda and industrial salts. The semi-public company Equate has been manufacturing ethylene products since 1998. The consumer and building materials industries (cement) are also important.
