Describe Saudi Arabia in one or two word(s):

Hi Friends,

Much has been told about this country. People have shared their good experiences (mostly in brief) and the not-so-good ones (in detail). So, I thought of asking you all, what comes first to your mind when you hear the name of this country Saudi Arabia.

Note: Please answer / describe it in one or two word(s) only.

For those who don't know its meaning, it means: "I don't care at all" or "I am not interested in or worried about something or someone"

It's an Arabic slang meaning "Let it go.". usually said about matters; not persons.

Anyways we're :offtopic: but khali wali with Dave concerns :lol:

Not according to my Saudi co-workers!  But maybe I'm mixing up the spelling.. is 'khali wali' the same as something pronounced 'holly wally' ?
