Which emirates make up the United Arab Emirates or UAE?

The United Arab Emirates, or UAE is a federation of seven states formed in 1971. These states were earlier ruled by Arab princes. Since then, it has grown from a quiet backwater into one of the Middle East's most important economic centres. Although each state - Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Ajman, Fujairah, Ras al Khaimah, Sharjah and Umm al Qaiwain - maintains a large degree of independence, the UAE is governed by a Supreme Council of rulers made up of the seven emirs, who appoint the prime minister and the cabinet. Before oil was discovered in the 1950's, the UAE's economy was dependent on fishing, and pearling industry. But since 1962, when Abu Dhabi became the first of the emirates to begin exporting oil, the country's society and economy have been transformed.
