Tunisia, a non-famous North African country, but historically it has another famous name, Carthage.
Located on the Mediterranean coast of North Africa, sandwiched between Algeria and Libya, Tunisia is narrow from east to west and long from north to south, with an area of 160,000 square kilometers and a population of 11.9 million.
When you first look at the map of Tunisia, you will be attracted by the huge "lake" in the middle of it, which is rare in arid North Africa. But actually, to be precise, it is not a lake, but a salt marshe, the third largest in the world, with an area of 7,000 square kilometers of the Jared Salt Swamp. It is located in the desert, the annual rainfall is very small, there is no river injection, the lake is dry all year round, just like our Chaka salt lake, cars can drive through the lake.
In fact, because most of the country is in the Sahara Desert, almost all the "waters" you can see on the map of Tunisia are salt marshes.
But Tunisia is not barren, and the area bordering the Mediterranean Sea to the north has a Mediterranean climate and a pleasant climate. Tunisia is surrounded by forests, grasslands, and deserts from north to south. The Mediterranean climate region in the north is the core area of Tunisia, the terrain is mainly mountainous, agriculture is developed, is the world's largest producer and exporter of olive and dates, tomato production is also among the best in the world. It can be said that Tunisia is a rich land in North Africa after the Nile Delta, which is why it gave birth to the Carthaginian Empire that could compete with ancient Rome.
