Tunisia:

Climate:

Tunisia's climate is temperate in the north, with mild rainy winters and hot, dry summers. The south of the country is desert. The terrain in the north is mountainous, which, moving south, gives way to a hot, dry central plain. The south is semiarid, and merges into the Sahara. A series of salt lakes, known as chotts or shatts, lie in an east-west line at the northern edge of the Sahara, extending from the Gulf of Gabes into Algeria. The lowest point is Shatt al Gharsah, at 17 metres below sea level and the highest is Jebel ech Chambi, at 1, 544 metres.

Language:

Modern Standard Arabic is the official language, but Tunisian Arabic is the local vernacular and is considered Tunisia's native language. As is the case in the rest of the Arab League, a local variety of Arabic is used by the public. Tunisian Arabic is closely related to the Maltese language.There is also a small minority of speakers of Shelha, a Berber language.

Currency:

The dinar code: TND is the currency of Tunisia. It is subdivided into 1000 milim or millimes.
