Life In The Arab League
The Arab League is a highly populated and culturally diverse region of 22 member states. As of January 1, 2007, the population of the Arab League was about 314 million people. Many countries are expected to experience an increase in population over the coming decades eating up all the slow Economic Developments being made in the League's Developing Countries.
The most populous member state is Egypt, with a population of 80 million people. The least populated is Djibouti with around half a million inhabitants. Most of the Persian Gulf states have high foreign Labor, the UAE's native population counts for less than 20% of its overall population, and 50% from South East Asia. Some Persian Gulf states import cheap Arab labor mainly from Egypt and Yemen, and others from Asia and Africa.

“Were the victims of a disease called social prejudice, my child. These dear ladies of the law and order league are scouring out the dregs of the town. Cmon be a glorified wreck like me.”
—Dudley Nichols (18951960)

—E.M. (Edward Morgan)
“As the Arab proverb says, The dog barks and the caravan passes. After having dropped this quotation, Mr. Norpois stopped to judge the effect it had on us. It was great; the proverb was known to us: it had been replaced that year among men of high worth by this other: Whoever sows the wind reaps the storm, which had needed some rest since it was not as indefatigable and hardy as, Working for the King of Prussia.”
—Marcel Proust (18711922)
