Capital of the horrendously powerful federation, United Arab Emirates. Has the country's largest oil reserves, that lead a very powerful economy there. Not as progressive/explosive as Dubai, but a very beautiful and prosperous city nonetheless. Mentioned in the "Garfield and Friends" cartoon when Garfield threatened Nermal with the famous "I'm going to ship you to Abu Dhabi!"
Preson 1: "I went to the UAE on vacation. Although I spent most of my time in Dubai, I checked Abu Dhabi out too because it is the seat of government there, and a beautiful city"
Person 2: "That place sounds familiar! I know, Garfield always talked about it on his cartoon!"
