It used to be under the governance of Britain until the 19th of June, 1961. Since then, it has made so much development that it is now recognized for its development and Arab culture. The country has no railway, but an impeccable road transport system. It has no fertile land for agriculture.

There is no personal income tax system in the country either from salary or income from business activities. In this country, 1.5 liters of petrol is valued at 0.06 Kuwaiti Dinar while 1.5 liters of water is valued at 0.16 Kuwaiti Dinar, making water more expensive than petrol.

Though it is an Arab country, women are allowed to vote and run elections. Instead of the Sharia Law which other Arab countries follows, it chose the civil law system. It is known for its greater freedom of expression than anywhere in the Arab world.

Behold the country, Kuwait, which has the highest valued currency in the world. 1 Kuwaiti Dinar is equal to 3.25 United States Dollars. According to the World Bank, the country has the fourth highest per capita income.

Kuwait imebarikiwa. Ilipigana vita na Iraq miaka ya 1980's lakini ukiiangalia ni kama vile haijawahi kuingia kwenye misuguano kwa maendeleo yaliyopo.
Tanzania tutabaki kuimba tu rasilimali tulizonazo na kujiita wazalendo huku wachache wakinufaika.
