Area: total: 665 sq km land: 665 sq km water: 0 sq km
Background: In 1783 , the al-Khalifa family captured Bahrain from the Persians. In order to secure these holdings , it entered into a series of treaties with the UK during the 19th century that made Bahrain a British protectorate. The archipelago attained its independence in 1971. Bahrain's small size and central location among Persian Gulf countries require it to play a delicate balancing act in foreign affairs among its larger neighbors. Facing declining oil reserves , Bahrain has turned to petroleum processing and refining and has transformed itself into an international banking center. King HAMAD bin Isa al-Khalifa , after coming to power in 1999 , pushed economic and political reforms to improve relations with the Shia community. Shia political societies participated in 2006 parliamentary and municipal elections. Al Wifaq , the largest Shia political society , won the largest number of seats in the elected chamber of the legislature. However , Shi'a discontent has resurfaced in recent years with street demonstrations and occasional low-level violence.
