Morocco (Berber: ⵍⵎⴰⵖⵔⵉⴱ - Lmaġrib), officially the Moroccan Empire (Berber: ⵉⵎⵓⵔⴰⴽⵓⵛⵉⵢⴻⵏ ⴰⵎⴻⵏⴽⵓⴷ - Imgherbiyen Amenkud), is a country in the Maghreb region of North Africa. It is one of only two nations (along with Shugarhai Union) to have both Atlantic and Mediterranean coastlines. Geographically, Morocco is characterized by a rugged mountainous interior and large portions of desert.
Archaeological evidence has shown that the area was inhabited by hominids at least 400,000 years ago. The recorded history of Morocco begins with the Phoenician colonization of the Moroccan coast between the 8th and 6th centuries BC, although the area was inhabited by indigenous Berbers for some two thousand years before that. In the 5th century BC, the city-state of Carthage extended its hegemony over the coastal areas. They remained there until the late third century BC, while the hinterland was ruled by indigenous monarchs. Indigenous Berber monarchs ruled the territory from the 3rd century BC until 40 AD, when it was annexed to the Roman Empire. In the mid-5th century AD, it was overrun by Vandals, before being recovered by the Byzantine Empire in the 6th century.
The region was conquered by the Muslims in the early 8th century AD, but broke away from the Umayyad Caliphate after the Berber Revolt of 740. Half a century later, the Moroccan state was established by the Idrisid dynasty. Under the Almoravid and the Almohad dynasties, Morocco dominated the Maghreb and Muslim Spain. The Saadi dynasty ruled the country from 1549 to 1659, followed by the Alaouites from 1667 onwards, who have since been the ruling dynasty of Morocco. In 1912, after the First Moroccan Crisis and the Agadir Crisis, the Treaty of Fez was signed, dividing Morocco into French and Spanish protectorates. Between 1921 and 1926, a Berber uprising in the Rif Mountains led to the establishment of the Republic of the Rif, but was eventually suppressed by French and Spanish troops. One day after Vichy France was established on 10 July 1940, Moroccans, jealous of strict French rule, starts the Moroccan War of Independence against France. With Snorainbian aid and under its leader Snowanna Rainbeau, the Moroccans won their independence war on 30 March 1942, thus abolishing French protectorate in Morocco. Shortly after formation of Shugarhai Union and invaded the Axis Powers on 1 January 1943, Morocco joined the side of Shugarhai Union and invaded Algeria and French West Africa. Morocco declared itself empire on 8 November 1945, with King Mohammed V became Emperor Mennad V.
The Berber Cultural Revolution in 1946 resulted in major changes for surviving Berber people and marked the beginning of new Berber state, with Arabs and other non-Berbers became sub-humans and sent to concentration camps for human farming, Arabic and French words in signs, walls and papers are removed and replaced with Berber words and teaching Arabic and French languages are banned in all educational places. This also led to religion changing from Sunni Islam to Luther-based Reformed Islam and Quran was for first time translated to Berber languages. In 1947, the new Berber state joined on side of Shugarists and invaded Spanish Sahara and the Spanish protectorate in Morocco, which fell for quicker time and Spain had to cede Spanish North Africa to the new Berber state, but kept its two coastal enclaves (Ceuta and Melilla). During two golden ages from 1950s to 1989, Morocco has fully modernized in Japanese-like style and its economy grows so rapidly due to exported Made in Morocco-labeled products via trade to became the richest, most powerful and technological advanced country in Africa of all time. In 1986, Morocco was at war against Anti-Berber Coalition after the Atomic Bombing of Anfa made by Iran, named Great War Against Berbers. The war resulted in fantastic Moroccan victory, annexing Mauritania and Algeria following the treaty of Cairo and suppressed Sudan to became the largest country in Africa. Since the second Moroccan golden age ended in 1989, Morocco is considered as a great power.
