Design: A water feature at the base of a Riad courtyard serves two purposes. Firstly, the obvious focal point but more importantly, the courtyard's open-air aperture channels warm air entering into the Riad which in turn passes over the water feature, cools down, thus assisting in the convection of heat to exit back through the Riad's open-air aperture. This style of natural air-conditioning has been prevalent in Morocco for millennia and is remarkably successful (File:Riad Laksiba-open-air-courtyard Marrakech.jpg) A '''riad''' ( WikiPedia:Morocco Dmoz:Regional Africa Morocco Commons:Category:Morocco

Morocco

'''Morocco''' ( , meaning "The West") are commonly used as alternate names.

Morocco has a population of over 33 million and an area of . Its political capital is Rabat, although the largest city is Casablanca; other major cities include Marrakesh, Tangier, Tetouan, Salé, Fes, Agadir, Meknes, Oujda, Kenitra, and Nador. A historically prominent regional power, Morocco has a history of independence not shared by its neighbours. Its distinct culture is a blend of Arab (Arab people), indigenous Berber (Berber people), Sub-Saharan African, and European influences.

Morocco claims the non-self-governing territory (United Nations list of Non-Self-Governing Territories) of Western Sahara as its Southern Provinces. Morocco annexed the territory in 1975, leading to a guerrilla war with indigenous forces until a cease-fire in 1991. Peace processes (Western Sahara peace process) have thus far failed to break the political deadlock.

Morocco is a constitutional monarchy with an elected parliament. The King of Morocco (List of rulers of Morocco) holds vast executive and legislative powers, especially over the military (Military of Morocco), foreign policy and religious affairs. Executive power is exercised by the government (Moroccan government), while legislative power (legislature) is vested in both the government and the two chambers of parliament, the Assembly of Representatives (Assembly of Representatives of Morocco) and the Assembly of Councillors. The king can issue decrees called dahir (Moroccan Dahir)s which have the force of law. He can also dissolve the parliament after consulting the Prime Minister (List of heads of government of Morocco) and the president of the Constitutional court.

Morocco's predominant religion is Islam, while the official languages are Berber (Berber languages) and Arabic (Arabic language). Moroccan Arabic, referred to as ''Darija'', and French (French language) are also widely spoken.
