The Kingdom of Morocco is one of only three countries to have Atlantic and Mediterranean coastlines. It is also one of the 21 countries with a constitutional monarchy, which means large amounts of power still default to someone based on "birth right."
On the good side, Morocco has a rich and unique cultural heritage that is a blend of Arab, Berber, Sub-Saharan African, and European influences. And a climate like Southern California, which is very nice.
