The manual states on p173:

Arabia ... Unique Trait:

Trade Caravan: +2 Gold from each Trade Route.

However, I have seem some references in other answers and comments, that it actually generates +1/trade route.

Which is true?

I wouldn't rely on the manual, it contains quite a lot of errors. – Mad Scientist Oct 14 '10 at 13:54

It is only +1, there must have been some balancing that occurred after the manual was created and they haven't updated it yet.

This has been observed true through gameplay. Also note that Arabia gains extra oil in the game, which the manual does not mention. – WillfulWizard Oct 21 '10 at 18:16
