Saudi Arabia is the dominant country of the Middle East and the Arabian Peninsula. The country is covered by deserts almost upon its entire territory.
The central regions of the country and the peninsula is an elevated plateau, called Najd. It is separated form the Red Sea and its narrow coastal plains by higher mountains on the western edges of the peninsula, the Hejaz and Asir Mountains.
The An-Nafud Desert and Syrian Deserts are located north of the Najd region, while the southern desert of the Saudi Arabia Map is called Rub' al Khali Desert, which is the most extensive sand desert on the Earth, stretching over the borders to Oman, Yemen and the Emirates. All of these sub-deserts are sub-sections of the greater non-homogenous Arabain Desert.
