Mauritania is like other African "nations" in that it has no natural resources it can call its own (the oil under it's sand belongs to the corporations that drill for it) and is remarkable only in its unremarkableness.
Mauritania Fun FactsEdit
- Until August, 2008 it had a non-military government
- its name sounds like a girl's name!
- it's poor like Afghanistan, but instead of opium, Mauritania has oil
- Mauritanians have lots of oil, but no food, you'd think their government would know better!
