==Geography==
The Arab World stretches across more than {{convert|13000000|km2}} of [[North Africa]] and the part of North-East Africa and South-West Asia. The [[Asia]]neastern part of the Arab world is called the ''[[Mashriq]]''. Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Libya and often Mauritania are the ''[[Maghreb]]'' or ''Maghrib'', while Egypt and Sudan are referred to as ''[[Nile Valley]]'', Egypt is a [[transcontinental country]] by virtue of the [[Sinai Peninsula]], which is in [[Asia]].

The term "Arab" often connotes the Middle East, but the larger (and more populous) part of the Arab World is North Africa. Its eight million square kilometers include two of the largest countries of the African continent, [[Algeria]] (2.4&nbsp;million km<sup>2</sup>) in the center of the region and [[Sudan]] (1.9&nbsp;million km<sup>2</sup>) in the southeast. Algeria is about three-quarters the size of [[India]], or about one-and-a-half times the size of [[Alaska]], the largest state in the United States. The largest country in the Arab Middle East is [[Saudi Arabia]] (2&nbsp;million km<sup>2</sup>).
