Arabs are the major occupants of this nation and from history, Arabs are wealthy because of their knowledge and the know-how in utilizing the natural resources and creating wealth. UAE is a leading gold and diamond mining, and also oil production since they are blessed with these endowments. The nation attracts quite a number of wealthy people worldwide because of their advanced technology in big hotels, big malls and many attraction sites.

People travel to enjoy their holidays in the most expensive places, in this nation, and that earns them more foreign and enabling the nation to stabilize the economy. One question that has left people wondering is how they manage to create wealth and maintain their position as the wealthiest nation. Perhaps an insight into their national culture and national management strategies will help in understanding the nation better (Marcus 2013, 66). National Culture of the United Arabs Emirates The United Arab Emirates were formed in 1971 when they got independence from Britain.

It has seven emirates namely; Dubai, Ajman, Abu Dhabi, Ras al Khaimah, Sharjah, Fujairah and Umm-al-Gawain. There are two main aspects that helped in shaping the emirate's culture. The first aspect was the practice of nomadic in the desert by a group of emirates called Bedouins who practiced farming in the oasis they formed a culture that has been seen as the mother of emirates culture. The second aspect was the culture formed from the sea by a group of emirates who resided at the ends of the sea and practiced trading of sea components like pearls.

These two subcultures are known to be independent in terms of social, economic and political aspects. Geographical Location of UAE It is located in the Persian Gulf and covers about 83,600 square kilometers. It borders with countries such as Qatar, Oman and Saudi Arabia. The sizes of the emirates vary, and their capital cities are named after the name of each emirate.
