Tunisia, officially the Tunisian Republic, is a country situated on the Mediterranean coast of North Africa. It is the northernmost African country and the smallest of the nat…ions situated along the Atlas mountain range. Around 40 percent of the country is composed of the Sahara desert, with much of the remainder consisting of particularly fertile soil, and a 1300-km coastline. Both played a prominent role in ancient times, first with the famous Phoenician city of Carthage, and later, as the Africa Province, which became known as the bread basket of the Roman Empire. It is thought that the name Tunis (Arabic for both the nation and capital city) originated from Berber, meaning either a geographical promontory, or, "to spend the night."
Tunisia is a country on the Mediterranean Sea, bordered on the west by Algeria, and on the southeast by Libya.

The media has dubbed the recent revolution in Tunisia the "Jasmine Revolution" based on the geopolitical nomenclature of "color revolutions," a term that described related mov…ements throughout several former USSR and Balkan states in the early 2000s. Many of these movements have been successful in in Georgia's Rose Revolution (2003), Ukraine's Orange Revolution (2004), Lebanon's Cedar Revolution, and the more violent Tulip Revolution of Kyrgystan (2005). Each time massive street protests followed disputed elections or request of fair elections and led to the resignation or overthrow of leaders considered by their opponents to be authoritarian. The comparison is disputed, notably by many Tunisians themselves.
