Yemen (Arabic: اليَمَن‎‎; al-Yaman), officially known as the Republic of Yemen (الجمهورية اليمنية; al-Jumhūrīyah al-Yamanīyah), was an Arab country in Western Asia occupying South Arabia, the southern end of the Arabian Peninsula. The coastline stretches for about 2,000 km (1,200 mi).[6] It was 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-northeast. Although Yemen's constitutionally stated capital was the city of Sana'a, the city has been under rebel control since February 2015. Because of this, Yemen's capital has been temporarily relocated to the port city of Aden, on the southern coast. Yemen's territory includes more than 200 islands; the largest of these is Socotra.

Yemeni unification took place on May 22, 1990, when People's Democratic Republic of Yemen (also known as South Yemen) was united with the Yemen Arab Republic (also known as North Yemen) to form the Republic of Yemen (known as simply Yemen).
