It is the largest province of the country occupying an area of nearly eight hundred thousand square kilometers, which is 36 percent of the country’s land mass and has common borders with Kuwait in the north, Qatar and Bahrain in the east, and United Arab Emirates and Oman at its south. It has a population of more than 4.1 million, which represents 15 percent of the Kingdom's total population.
