Islamic Republic of Mauritania
The name is a transliteration of the Berber word meaning "place of the winds". Nouakchott is one of the largest cities in the Sahara. It was originally constructed, on the site of a fishing village on the Atlantic coast, specifically to serve as the capital of the country after France granted independence in 1960.
