___ Map of Mauritania

Mauritania is a country in Northwest Africa bordering the North Atlantic coast in west. The country is sparsely populated because most of the country is covered by the Sahar Desert. Mauritania's population of only 3 million people is concentrated in the capital city Nouakchott and in the region where the Senegal River forms the border with Senegal, the river helps to form an alluvial fan that supports agriculture in the area.

With an area of 1,025,520 sq km the country is about twice the size of Spain, or slightly larger than the US states of Texas and New Mexico combined.
