More about Tunisia

The African nation of Tunisia lies between Algeria and Libya, near the Mediterranean Sea. In 2021, Tunisia’s population numbered 11.8 million, ranking 79th worldwide. Most of the population lives in the northern region. The capital city of Tunis is home to 2.4 million Tunisians. Stax, Sousse, and Kairouan are some other populous Tunisian cities.

Most of Tunisia’s land use is agricultural, as agriculture is its largest industry. Petroleum, mining, and tourism are minor but important Tunisian industries. However, remittances have been a considerable part of the country’s economic growth. In addition, money from abroad has supported many Tunisian families’ livelihoods.

The nation’s official currency is the Tunisian dinar (TND). Many countries, such as Libya, Jordan, Iraq, and Algeria, use a version of the dinar. Did you know that the discontinued 723 Umayyad gold dinar is one of the rarest coins in the world? Tunisia started using the dinar in 1960 when it replaced the franc.

Arabic is the official Tunisian language. But many Tunisians also speak some French, Italian, or English. That fluency helps Tunisians who move abroad for better career options and economic opportunities.

Most Tunisian emigrants choose European countries to settle in. Italy is one such popular destination. Others heading abroad choose France or Germany. In return, European tourists find Tunisia a very affordable vacation destination.
