Saudi Arabia: King Abdullah attempts to avoid unrest with $35 billion in benefits for citizens - Video

The average per capita income in the Saudi's Arabia is just $6,851.39 per person. Amazing!

Apparently that's 2005 figure ~ the latest figure seems to be around $23,742. Still amazing. This is average of the average salary for everybody including ~ oil billionaires. The increase in the average income might even have more to do with the spike in oil prices ~ more than a rise in actual earnings.
