Kuwait is a small country (with an area of around 18,000 square kilometers) located northeast of the Persian Gulf. It shares borders with Iraq (to the north and northwest), Saudi Arabia (to the south and southwest), and to the east, a sea border with Iran through the Persian Gulf. The population is around 4.5 million.
