(From the Wikipedia)

Tunisia achieved independence from France in 1956. It is a republic with a strong presidential system dominated by the dominant Constitutional Democratic Assembly party. President Zine el-Abedine Ben Ali has been in office since 1987. Tunisia's economy has gradually privatized, with agricultural, mining, energy, tourism, and manufacturing sectors. Tunisia's strong ties to the EU will result in complete EU associate status in 2008. There are about 10 million Tunisian citizens.


The official language is Arabic, but French is widely spoken.
