Kuwait is a constitutional emirate with a parliamentary system of government, with Kuwait City serving as the country’s political and economic capital. The country has the world’s fifth largest oil reserves. It is the eleventh richest country in the world per capita. In 2007, it had the highest human development index (HDI) in the Arab world. Despite its wealth and high standard of education, living openly as a homosexual carries dire consequences. In recent years, Kuwait has become more aware about homosexuality. The subject has been addressed more than once on television. Preachers condemn it as a big sin.

Kuwait - Al-Ahmadi port; the largest and most advanced pier in the Middle East, 30 kms from Kuwait City. The 2.1-kilometre (1.3-mile) state-of-the-art offshore pier was built by South Korean Hyundai Engineering at a cost of more than 330 million dollars and took three years to complete. With its six platforms, the pier can handle four tankers simultaneously and will reduce loading time from 48 hours to 30 hours, thus boosting export capacity.
