9.지 리 - Saudi Arabia occupies four-fifths of the Arabian peninsula. It is bordered to the northwest by Jordan, to
the north by Iraq and Kuwait, to the east by the Gulf of Oman, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and Oman, and to the south
by Yemen. To the west lies the Red Sea. Along the Red Sea coast is a narrow coastal strip (Tihama) which becomes
relatively hotter and more humid towards the south and has areas of extensive tidal flats and lava fields. Behind this coastal
plain is a series of plateaux reaching up to 2000m (6560ft). The southern part of this range, Asir, has some peaks of over
3000m (9840ft). North of these mountains, in the far north, is An Nafud, a sand sea, and further south the landscape rises to
Najd, a semi-desert area scattered with oases.

established to advise the monarch; it has no formal powers.
