The flag of Kuwait, not to be confused with all the other vaguely similar Arab flags.

Kuwait is a country in the Middle East composed of a few acres of sand with oil beneath and nothing much above. You can tour all the "sights" in the better part of an afternoon. The invasion of Kuwait by Iraq caused the First Iraq War when George H.W. Bush repelled the attackers but inexplicably left Saddam Hussein in power (inexplicable, that is, until his son tried to finish the job and found out you can't just topple a brutal dictator and expect the country to self-assemble into a Western-style democracy). Afterwards, Kuwait was restored as a sovereign state and has now gone towards some form of supposed "constitutional monarchy" with token parliamentary representation.
