Tunisia is a small nation on the Mediterranean coast of North Africa.
An Arab country in which the people are predominantly Muslim,
Tunisia nonetheless maintains strong ties to Europe and good relations
with its African neighbors. Among the countries of the Arab
world Tunisia is considered a moderate state; its policies, unlike
those of neighboring Libya, are generally favorable to the United
States and the West.The country is not without its problems, however. Religious fundamentalists,
who want Tunisia to impose strict Islamic laws on the
country, have caused unrest since the 1980s. In addition, political
power is concentrated in the hands of a few people. Many hope that
one day Tunisia will create a truly democratic society, in which all of
the people can participate in improving their country.
