Flag of Morocco

Morocco (المغرب in Arabic) is a country in northern Africa on the Mediterranean coast. The capital is Rabat and the currency is the Moroccan dirham. The Current King of Morocco is Mohammed VI of Morocco.

Geography[edit]

Toubkal

Morocco shares borders with Spain along the coast with Spain's exclaves: Ceuta, Melilla, and Peñón de Vélez de la Gomera, Algeria to the east and Western Sahara to the south. Western Sahara is claimed by Morocco as a part of the country so technically Morocco also shares a border with Mauritania in the south.

The highest mountain in Morocco is Toubkal at 4,167 m.
