Think Saudi, Think ___ ___

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.

Statutory EB Warning: Replies in more than one words will flagged as Off Topic and the users will be asked to start a new thread.

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"

Doesn't it mean 'all ok'? Slang in England would be 'sorted'?

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' ?
