Country Overview

Algeria is a presidential republic in northwest Africa with the capital Algiers. In terms of area, the country is the largest country on the African continent. The Tell Atlas rises behind a narrow coastal plain, which is separated from the Sahara Atlas by the Schott plateau. The Sahara extends in the middle and south of the country and takes up over four fifths of the country’s area. The climate is desert. Only in the north there is a Mediterranean climate.

The population consists mainly of Arabs and various Berber tribes, some of which are heavily Arabized. Above all, the Berber tribes of the Kabyle and the Tuareg insist on their cultural independence. The official languages ​​are Arabic and the Berber language Tamazight, the state religion is Islam. Over 95% of the population live in the coastal plain and the Atlas Mountains in the north.

In ancient times, Phoenicians, Romans, Vandals and Byzantines ruled over what is now Algeria. In the 7th century the region was conquered and Islamized by the Arabs. In 1519 the coastal region came under Ottoman suzerainty. In 1830 the conquest and colonial subjugation by France began. In 1954 an armed uprising broke out against the French occupation. After heavy and bloody fighting, it led to Algeria’s independence in 1962. However, terrorist attacks by Islamic fundamentalists and widespread poverty resulted in continued political unrest. The economy is based on the production of oil and natural gas. The industry mainly includes large state oil processing and steel industry companies. Algeria is a member of the African Unionand the Arab League.
