A country in north west Africa inhabited by Arabs, moors, and black people. Mauritanians are the coolest and most friendly people you would ever meet.

mauritania is a former french colony in africa that has turned into a pretty disasterous country. it's history is summed up in the bloody battle between the moorish islamic minority and the black christian/amenist minority. ruled for years as a one party state, it had a decade long experiment with democracy, before a 2005 coup turned this into a military junta.
