Algeria has seen the ruling hand of many countries through its life -- first as a colony of ancient Tyre, then the growing empire of the Carthaginians. It fell under the sway of Rome, then the Vandals, and the Ottomans. In modern times it was governed by France until the revolution in the 1960's. Following Doomsday Algeria suffered greatly, and eventually fractured into a number of feuding city-states, disconnected from much of the rest of the world.
Algeria devolved quickly into different city-states, some lead by militant Islamic clerics, most lead by a local military leader. The fortunes of these cities waxed and waned. Most were captured by rival cities some number of times and just as quickly released to rule themselves, resulting in an overwhelming state of anarchy.
Since contact was made with the Greeks and the Sicilians, most of the city-states have sided with the Atlantic Defense Community and Greece against the threat of the Sicilians. Those that did not openly side with Greece were the few that refused all contact with the outside world. The Greeks and League of Nations then worked on training a coast guard to help the Algerians withstand any Sicilian aggression.
Remnants of the Algerian government, combined with many of the city-states, with Greek support and pressure, formed a new Algerian state in 2003. Holdouts have been adsorbed, or in some cases, conquered, in the years since then. As of 2014, five areas remain independent, and are likely to remain so. The forces of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic also control some former Algerian territory in the west, centered around the city of Tindouf.
Government and Politics
Currently the political situation in Algeria has somewhat stabilized. While the Algerian government still seeks reunification with the remaining independent states, their existence is tolerated for now, in no small part due to support from outside powers .
Algeria currently enjoys close relations with the Greek Federation, despite their attempts to get Kabylie to become a member, and close relations with the other members of the ADC. Sicily's conquest of Tunisia caused a breakdown of relations between the Italian nation and Algeria, and the Algerian government is known to have been pleased with the ousting of the Sicilians from the region by the ADC in the fall of 2010. It is unknown, however, what they think of ADC plans to re-establish a Tunisian state.
