Introduction
The Kingdom of Morocco, which gained independence from France in 1956, is the westernmost of the North African countries. It is located along the Atlantic and Mediterranean oceans, and also shares a border with the Strait of Gibraltar and the Spanish enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla to the north, and with Algeria to the east. Morocco also administers most of the disputed region of the Western Sahara, though the official status of the region has remained unresolved for several decades. On the other side of Western Sahara lies Mauritania, forming Morocco's de-facto southern boundary. Its total area, including Western Sarara, is 274,461 square miles (710,850 sq km). A large part of Morocco is mountainous, while it also includes a portion of the Sahara desert.

Population and language
The population of Morocco is approximately 32 million. Arab-Berbers are the indigenous people, and still make up an estimated 99% of the population. Most of the estimated 100,000 foreign residents are either Spanish or French. An estimated 99% of the population is Muslim, along with small minorities of Christian and Jewish residents. Moroccan Arabic is the official language; Standard Arabic, Berber languages, and French are also spoken here. English is not widely used, though its use is increasing among the younger generations. Because of Morocco's unique history, its rich culture is a blend of Berber, Arab, African, and European influences.

Major cities and tourist destinations
Rabat serves as the political capital of Morocco, and has an estimated 1.9 million residents. Highlights include a twelfth-century tower and minaret. The largest city is Casablanca, with about 3.5 million residents. This is the city made famous in the movies. This bustling, vibrant city is a great starting point for foreign visitors, and can make a good base for organizing a trek into the Sahara. Its Hassan II mosque, the second largest in the world, is a popular tourist attraction. Fes or Fez, the former capital, has 1.1 million residents and one of the biggest and oldest medieval cities in the world. Marrakech, with 950,000 residents, is known for a huge maze of ruins and souks (open-air marketplaces). Tangier is a charming, smaller city known for attracting artists, musicians, and writers.

Climate
In the mountainous areas and to the north of Morocco, the climate is Mediterranean. Its warm, humid weather makes it a popular vacation destination. This becomes more extreme towards the interior regions of the country, with the Sahara desert renowned for its high temperatures. These areas are very dry and extremely hot during the long summer season.

Economy
The major industries of Morocco include tourism, agriculture, cannabis cultivation, and phosphate mining. Morocco is the world's third-largest phosphorus producer, and produces an estimated 88% of the cannabis consumed in Europe. Morocco has capitalized on its proximity to Europe and relatively low labor costs to build a diverse, stable economy. Recent industrial developments have improved Morocco's competitiveness. However, the country still struggles with high unemployment and poverty. GDP is estimated to be $151.4 billion USD, while imports are $41 billion USD and exports are $21.5 billion USD. The currency is the Moroccan dirham, which is divided into 100 centimes.

Transportation
There are several airports in Morocco offering international flights. Mohammed V International Airport (CMN), located in Casablanca, is the largest. Morocco has an extensive network of roadways and railways, making it easy to travel around the country. Trains tend to be faster and offer more frequent service than buses, though their network is more limited. Shared taxis are also common. Roads tend to be narrow, though in good condition. To take advantage of everything Morocco has to offer, consider a car hire for greater travel flexibility.
