Some of this is changed from here, eg "With a full grant of suffrage and an increase of Al-Jazaryan autonomy Al-Jazarya remained a department of France although much territory in the Sahara was lost to the Maghreb Caliphate." France, as we know, lost this colony in the 50's and 60's. This was what was a proposal, and thus is worthy of the QSS tag. BoArthur 08:01, 29 November 2005 (PST)
Is Algeria realy a single department ? is seem way too big, both in term of population and territory. I would propose that it is divided into a number of departments, maybe along the lines of the alegerian provinces *here*:
If so, Algeria could simply be a geographical designation (like Iberia) or have some special status (along the lines of the metropolitan communities though weaker). If this break QSS, it could be that algeria was indeed a single department until the reorganisation of the 50s.

- I agree. Perhaps Algeria should be a Province or two, or maybe even a Community at its full size (of course, it still could be one now). --Sikulu 06:47, 1 March 2006 (PST)
- I'll have to think about it...There would need to be departéments since the Provinces are more touristy divisions without any real governmental value. Algeria has kind of been my baby since I joined up...I'll look up the historical breakdown of the country, because it is somewhat large. I had always thought that it was the desert areas, but I realize now that the size it is *there* does not include much of the desert...so I'll make a map. :) BoArthur
