Algeria has a long and rich history, with evidence of human habitation dating back to ancient times.
Throughout its history, Algeria has been influenced by a variety of different cultures, including the Phoenicians, Romans, Vandals, Byzantines, and Ottomans. In the 19th century, Algeria was colonized by France, and gained its independence in 1962 after a long and bloody struggle. Today, Algeria is a presidential republic with a president and prime minister.
