Check out our brand new channel, Visual Academy: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC00VXLPfLevjlZUhb3XkDhQ Oman is a country that you rarely see on the news. This is interesting given that Oman is located in one of the most important geopolitical hotspots: the Strait of Hormuz. One third of the world’s oil travels past the Oman coast. On the other hand, Oman is perhaps the most tolerant country in the region. Despite being an absolute monarchy, apostasy is legal in Oman and around one third of the workforce is female, which is a high number compared to the regional standard. Diplomacy-wise, Oman has managed to maintain friendly ties with both Iran and Saudi Arabia. They have been friends with Israel, The United States and all the arab nations and they have avoided any kind of significant conflict for decades. All of this was thanks to Sultan Qaboos, who died at the beginning of 2020. So now the question is: what challenges does his successor face? What is going on in Oman today? In this VisualPolitik video, we tell you all about it.

In This Story: Iran
Iran is home to one of the world’s oldest civilizations, beginning with the formation of the Elamite kingdoms in the fourth millennium BC. The Iranian Revolution established the current Islamic Republic in 1979.
Iran’s political system combines elements of a presidential democracy and an Islamic theocracy. Iran is a founding member of the UN, ECO, OIC, and OPEC. It is a major regional and middle power and has large reserves of fossil fuels — including the world’s largest natural gas supply and the third largest proven oil reserves.
The country’s rich cultural legacy is reflected in part by its 22 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Historically a multi-ethnic country, Iran remains a pluralistic society comprising numerous ethnic, linguistic, and religious groups, the largest being Persians, Azeris, Kurds, Mazandaranis and Lurs.
