Oman is another Middle Eastern country that is not in the news very often - its oil production is middling, its religious situation is currently harmonious, and its income is high. The nation scores 1.889 on the Global Peace Index. Oman is home to the world's largest (and only significant) concentration of Ibadi Muslims, a fairly obscure sect. The Omani rial is one of the strongest currencies in the world, with 1 rial being permanently pegged at USD $2.60.
