Introduction: Rashamite - Jewel of the Sinai

Welcome to Rashamite, a modern transitional state located on the Sinai Peninsula, an ancient land with more than its fair share of history. From the Mediterranean Sea, across the barren hot desert south to Mount Sinai and then to the Red Sea, this small state is nestled between Egypt, Israel, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia.

The shaky nation is subject to much instability and internal conflict due to the ever-present and ever-growing tensions between the majority Arab Orthodox Christian population (50%) and the Sunni Muslim population (30%). The Jewish minority, at 10%, is hit the hardest by the string of violence and civil wars that ravage the beautiful land.

But before we dive into politics, let us visit the country's capital city, Ibrahimia (ابراهيمية). The city grew out of an old walled city nestled in the Sophron Mountains in the north-central regions of the Sinai. The city is home to an abundance of churches, synagogues, and mosques, symbolizing the clash of religion and culture which lies at the heart of Rashamite's unrest.

Very nice indeed, I love Arabic CJ's like that, it looks like a great melting pot of cultures, I even see the Sankt Johan's tor of Basel in it :party:
