Located in the westernmost region of North Africa, Morocco has a unique blend of Arab, European and African cultures, with large Arab and indigenous Berber populations. The population stood at 32.3m in mid-2012, with a median age of 27.3 years. Around 99% of the population is Muslim, with most adhering to the Maliki school of Sunni Islam. Modern Standard Arabic is the official language, although its local dialect Darija is more commonly used. A trend in rural migration has transformed the country into a largely urban society over the last decade, and around 58% of citizens now live in cities. The kingdom boasts vast deposits of mineable resources, including significant phosphate reserves, along with iron, ore, manganese, zinc, lead, salt, cobalt and silver.
