Western Sahara, i.e., the area south of Morocco, has not been marked on the map even though Morocco has ruled the territory since 1976.
The ICL-Edition is based on the 1992 consolidated version of Morocco's Constitution.
Morocco is a constitutional, hereditary monarchy. The Western Sahara freedom movement Polisario is fighting for independence since 1976. A referendum, promised by Morocco for 1992, did not take place even though UN
forces arrived for supervision.
