Tunisia, officially the Tunisian Republic, is a country located on the Mediterranean coast of North Africa. It is the northernmost African country and the smallest of the nations situated along the Atlas mountain range. Around 40 per cent of the country is comprised by 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 breadbasket of the Roman Empire. It is believed that the name of Tunisia (in Arabic, of both the nation and the capital city) originated from Berber, meaning either a geographical promontory, or, "to spend the night."
