It is a wealthy country with the fourth-highest per capita income in the world. Kuwait has a relatively open society compared to its peers in the region, promotes the arts and culture and also houses the largest opera house in the Middle East.

Most Kuwaiti citizens are Muslims, with Indians and Egyptians comprising the majority of the expats.
