yemen is a middle eastern nation that isn't wealthy because it lacks oil. the nation was once part of the old ottoman empire. after wwi, the the northern part became an independent faux republic, while the south remained a british colony. south yemen became independent in the '60s as a communist state. they united in 1990 and have been a country filled with drought, civil war, and political corruption ever since. its close distance to africa has lead to vicitms of wars in both the mid east and africa fleeing back and forth between the 2 continents through yemen.

Yemen is a country located on the Arabian Peninsula in Southwest Asia.

Yemen is mentioned on an episode of the hit tv show 'Friends' in 'The One Where Old Yeller Dies.'

Dr. Ross Geller: I don't believe this. I miss, I miss the first time of everything. I missed, what, the first time he rolled over, the first time he crawled. What else did I miss? Has he spoken yet, is he driving, does he have a favorite liqueur?

Carol Willick: Actually, he is getting closer on the talking thing. He can't quite say mama yet, but once he said Yemen.
Dave: What's the capital of Yemen?
Sarah: What!?

For one, its a small middle eastern country that, by the look of it from Google earth, is inhabited by white cars only... But no-one cares about that, the term 'Yemen' today is used to describe (usually) a vast amount of epicity in something, whether it be a situation (1) a belonging (2) or somebody's actions (3)
