位於西非的阿拉伯國家，1960年從法屬西非獨立出來，但在那之後仍經歷多次政變， 政局相當不穩定。曾和摩洛哥爭搶西撒哈拉主權， 後來在1978年退出，轉而支持西撒人陣民族自決。是全球最後一個廢除奴隸制的國家，一直到2016年全國都還有1%人口被迫從事勞動。伊斯蘭教義在國家司法體系中有決定性作用，人民生活也相當遵守教義。噢另外有個冷知識，豐腴的女人在該國被視為是富裕的象徵。（敏迪顯示為想移居）
Year Founded: 1960
Mauritania is an Arab state in West Africa. After breaking away from French West Africa in 1960, it has seen multiple coup d’états and remains a highly unstable political state. Mauritania once competed with Morocco for sovereignty over Western Sahara. It then withdrew from the fight in 1978 and switched its support the national self-determination movement of the Polisario Front. It was the last country in the world to officially abolish slavery. Until 2016, 1% of the population was still trapped in forced labor. Islamic teachings play an instrumental role in its judicial system and people also live their lives according to the doctrine. Oh, one more trivial fact to share: the society of Mauritania perceives plus size women as a symbol of wealth.
