Land me in the money! (5)


I believe the answer is:


'land' is the definition.
(I know that Yemen is a Asian country)

'me in the money' is the wordplay.
'in the' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'money' becomes 'yen' (Japanese currency).
'me' going inside 'yen' is 'YEMEN'.

(Other definitions for yemen that I've seen before include "Republic sited on the SW corner of Arabia" , "Country to W. of Oman" , "Arabian country, capital San'a" , "Country between the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden" , "Arab state" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
