Yer Bouti is an enclave on the North Western African coast.
Somewhat of an oddity it is often overlooked or missed off completely from modern maps.
Sitting between the Western Sahara and Mauritainia the enclave was used as a port in the 1700’s but was never favored by the colonial powers at the time.
The area was never seen as having that much to offer and was pasted over by Spain and most others.
Some mid east influence made its way to the area and surprisingly British from the late 1700’s.
The Duke of Southend-on-sea sailing to the new World with many settlersĀ  on-board got lost and was shipwrecked.
Many survived and stayed, despite the harsh environment a homeland developed but they effected the local dialect, this hindered trade with the rest of region.
Displaced Sheikh’s from the East and girls from Southend with their wisdom left it’s mark on the area.
Some say this held back development of Yer Bouti for hundreds of years.

Marginal land on a small coastal plain around an inlet.
Rugged almost impassable highlands in the North and desert to the East.
There is history of a Sheikhdom from 1820 until today ruled almost continuously by one of five Clans.
