No oil, no problem

Jordan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Jordan ranked as having the 11th highest standard of living in the developing world and the second highest standard of living in the Arab and Muslim World as measured by the Human Poverty Index-2. Jordan is a noticeably clean country with an extremely low crime rate.["

Jordan has few natural resources but is apparently a much nicer county than the majority of its oil rich neighbors. I think that natural resource wealth is more often an curse than a blessing because is forms the basis for a cleptocracy.
