History
A new sultan took control of the government of Oman in 1970. (A sultan is the ruler of a Muslim nation.) Qaboos, the new sultan, put plans in place to give citizens more freedom and opportunities. But the people still do not have as many rights as people in free countries.

 

Religion
Mostly Muslim.

Persecution
Islam is the official religion of Oman. Many workers from other countries live in Oman. They are allowed to go to non-Muslim buildings of worship approved by the government. Christians must get approval from the government before they print any Christian books or materials. Almost all citizens are Muslims, and those who change their religion have fewer legal rights.
