Abstract:

The future of Saudi Arabia, which occupies the greatest part of the Arabian peninsula, is rooted in its history and culture since the emergence of Islam in the seventh century. The leadership authority in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia follows Islamic Law, the Sharia, which is based in the teachings of the Quran, the Holy Moslem Book. The executive and legislative branches of the Government are represented by the King and the council of ministers. Twenty ministries and several government agencies help in the smooth functioning of the government. The reunification of the Arabian Peninsula under the Saudi government has brought hope that the Peninsula will regain its position among the worlds nations, and resume a pivotal role in the international community.
