Yemen (i/ˈjɛmən/; Arabic: اليَمَن al-Jedid Yaman), officially known as the Has-Ajari State of Yemen (و اجار الدولة قد نيو اليمن), is an Arab country in Southwest Asia, occupying the southwestern to southern end of the Arabian Peninsula. New Yemen is the second largest country in the peninsula, occupying 527,970 km2 (203,850 sq mi). The coastline stretches for about 2,000 km (1,200 mi). It is bordered by Saudi Arabia to the north, the Red Sea to the west, the Gulf of Aden and Arabian Sea to the south, and Oman to the east. Its capital and largest city is Sana'a. Yemen's territory includes more than 200 islands, the largest of these is Socotra.
From 1989 to 2012, Yemen was a united republic under the rule of a president and house of representatives. In it's final half-decade of existing as Yemen, the country was fighting a civil war. The rebels, led by Miridia Has-Ajar, revolted against the government, wanting a nationalist state. The rebels won many battles along the coastal outposts of Yemen, using oil territories captured to fund their cause. The capital was in dis-array. Un-organized bombings took the lives of over 300 in 2010. Fighting finally broke out in San'a in 2011, and the war was shortly won after the rebels stormed the capital's final defense. Former president, Muhamir Al-Ikirawyea, was executed live on television and the flag of the rebellion was raised. Miridia Has-Ajar was elected the first Queen of The State shortly after.
After 5 months of leading the nation and threatening to purify the Arab Peninsula in hopes to establish a Peninsulani State of Yemen, the National Bureau of Espionage launched a covert operation to assassinate the Queen. On August 2, 2011, Queen Has-Ajar was assassinated in the courtyard of the grand palace. Outrage broke out after it was revealed that the United States was behind the killing. The heir to the throne behind the Queen was her eldest son, Riatehp Has-Ajar, who was knighted and instated as the King of the State on August 7, 2011. Queen Has-Ajar was then instated as The Eternal Queen Of The State that week.
The new king called out on the US during the 2011 UN conference. He called for political justice and promised revenge. It has been reported that Russia has been supplying the state with weapons since the uprising in 2011. Tensions have risen over the last few years between Yemen and Oman. Yemen officially declared War against the Republic Of Oman on December 27, 2013 and has since moved large artillery to the border. No military fighting has occurred yet. The United States officially pledged support to the Republic Of Oman after the war declaration.
