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.

The answer should be Yes. Tunisia is well known for being peaceful and empty of social and national troubles. First, Tunisia and the other countries. Tunisia have been internationnaly known of its friendly relationships to all foreign countries as well as Arab ones, and it is always neutral in its p…olitical positions. Second, Religiously speaking the majority of Tunisians are Muslims "Sunnah" and very centrists. there are Christian communities as well as Jew ones and there are mosques , Churches and senagogs. There are no by any means fanatics is Tunisia, because the gouvenment and laws prohibit fanatism and even the "sunnah" prohibits it. Third, Tunisia and foreigners. Any one who comes to Tunisia will be very astonished by the homey and humble behaviour of Tunisians towards him. I personally as a Tunisian cannot deny that some of the youth here are stalcking to tourists so that they can go outside Tunisia... that's another subject, but what is important is that Tunisias are not harmful.

The BIGGEST Problem. A major problem throughout Tunisia is desertification.

Humans Impact on Natural… Resources. There is a ton of air pollution and water pollution due to ineffective disposal of toxic and hazardous materials in water.

Moncef Marzouki is the interim President of Tunisia. Marzouki was appointed on 2011 December 13 after the 2010-2011 Tunisian Revolution which saw long time President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali ousted, and a new national constitution drawn up.
Tunisia is a LEDC because of several reasons. I'll state some of them. First, the independence and the economic loss. Tunisia have got it's independence on 20 March 1956 from France. When the French left Tunisia, it was in a mess, the problems were mainly 3 : poverty, illiteracy, unemployment. All t…he Tunisian fundings at that time were mainly concentrated on Education under the doctrine of Habib Borgiba, and the Education Minister El Messadi. then the rest of the incomes was headed to the employment through improving the country's infra_structure by building roads and industries, all that was also sponsored by some French who still live in Tunisia. Poverty then was treated through employment. Untill now Tunisia have produced 3 generations of well educated people who are now working in almost every field, however economy in Tunisia is still weak because the main source is Tourism and second exportation of agricultural goods. These two realms are not well predictable ones, not like controlled industry, so Tunisia is still waiting for the last educated generation to make it better through many specialized people in industrial techniques and technologies. You can concider that the main Tunisian investment was not Industry, yet it was Education for that Tunisia is a LECD but with a honorific average of 100% educated people between 06 and 16 years old and almost 3 millions students engaged in higher education and post graduate one, knowing that education is cumpolsory and absolutely free in Tunisia.

Answer After gaining independence from France in 1956, President Habib Bourguiba established a strict one-party state.

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 movements throughout several former USSR and Balkan states in the early 2000s. Many of these movements have been successful in i…n 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.
