The State of Qatar is located on a peninsula jutting out into the Persian Gulf from the larger Arabian Peninsula; its only land border is with Saudi Arabia.

The historic economy of Qatar was fishing and pearling, today Qatar's economy is dominated by oil and gas production; in 2004 the Qatar Science & Technology Park was established.

Qatar, slightly smaller than the state of Connecticut, is mostly flat and barren desert. The climate is arid; the winters are pleasant, the summers very hot and humid.

Qatar is an emirate, or monarchy. Qatar citizens over 18 are granted universal sufferage. The capital and main port is Doha.

Doha, the capital city and economic center of Qatar, is located on the Persian Gulf. The name Doha comes from the Arabic meaning “big tree”.

Founded in 1825, Doha was little more than a small village known as Al Bida in the nineteenth century.
