The Kingdom of Morocco is a part of the Maghreb region of North Africa that includes Tunisia, Algeria, Mauritania, & Libya with which it shares historical, cultural, & linguistic ties. Primarily a nation of farmers, the country is dominated by the Atlas Mountains that separate the fertile coastal regions from the harsh Sahara. These high, rugged mountains helped protect Morocco from colonization until the early 20th century when the French & Spanish brought their influence to the Islamic region.
