* The Rub' Al Khali[[note]]''The Empty Quarter''[[/note]] desert on the southern Arabian peninsula is one of the largest sand deserts in the world, taking up about 250,000 square miles of area. While it's not completely inhospitable (there is some life), it's close: water sources are extremely few and far between. On the flip side, though, it's geologically ''rich'', with mineral and oil deposits estimated to be worth billions[[note]]So much so that some geologists call it the Rub' Al '''G'''hali, meaning the '''Valuable''' Quarter, according to TheOtherWiki[[/note]].
