The real estate market

To own land in Qatar you have to be a citizen. If you're not a citizen, you can own up to 49% of any given parcel and the rest must belong to a Qatari. There is one exception: You can buy "reclaimed" land, manmade land in the ocean. Such land is scarce, and quite expensive.

People who buy this land also buy nice boats. Speaking of boats, here's a shout out to what some believe to be an acceptable youtube video. Anyway, back on topic, the fake island sports a torch in the middle of a nondescript and senseless wall of concrete, as if it were not already hot and bright enough around here.
