Jordan ('''Arabic:''' الأردن‎ al-Urdun), also known as the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan ('''Arabic:''' المملكة الأردنية الهاشمية‎ al-Mamlakah al-Urdunīyah al-Hāshimīyah) is a country in West Asia, bordering UsefulNotes/{{Israel}} and Palestine to the west, UsefulNotes/{{Iraq}} to the east, UsefulNotes/{{Syria}} to the north, and UsefulNotes/{{SaudiArabia}} to the south. It received its name from the River Jordan, which forms its western border.

This desert kingdom arose when the Ottoman Empire imploded after UsefulNotes/WorldWarI. It was put under British supervision until 1946, when it was named the Hashemite Kingdom of Transjordan. It, like the other countries, did not take Israel's founding well, and started the first ArabIsraeliConflict. Jordan held the West Bank until 1967, when it was taken by Israel. It later renounced its claim to the West Bank on the King's orders, saying that it was now the Palestinians' responsibility to gain independence from Israel. Later, it became the second Arab country (after UsefulNotes/{{Egypt}}) to sign a peace treaty with Israel, and relations between the two countries are nowadays cordial; Israel has helped Jordan to modernize with its technological expertise, while those Muslim pilgrims who want to visit the Holy Land can do so via a transit in Jordan.

Unlike other Arab countries, it has little to no oil, but it had the luck of having ample phosphate deposits which it developed. The fact that it was the site of ancient states like Ammon as well as being the site of the Roman city of Petra, a Mecca for Christian pilgrims, also aided its bottom line. However, it still has a high unemployment rate. As one of the most stable nations in the region, Jordan hosts an enormous population of Palestinian refugees from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as well as hundreds of thousands displaced by fighting in neighboring Syria.

As one of the most stable nations in the region, Jordan hosts an enormous population of Palestinian refugees from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict conflict; it's estimated that as well many as a half of the population are Palestinians. Unlike the other Arab countries, the Palestinians have more or less naturalized and have gained citizenship as well, making them a full part of Jordan's society; in fact, the current king's wife, Rania, is a Palestinian from both of her parents' sides. Since the start of the Syrian Civil War, Jordan has hosted hundreds of thousands displaced by fighting in neighboring Syria.

Jordan is mostly composed of Arabs, with a Circassian minority from the Caucasus. These are descendants of refugees from Russia in the 1800s due to religious and ethnic persecution. Some of them form an elite royal guard over the King.
