A Note on Algerian Ethnic Groups almost all Algerians are Berber in origin, not Arab; the minority who identify themselves as Berber live mostly in the mountainous region of Kabylie east of Algeirs; the Berbers are also Muslim but identify with their Berber rather than Arab cultural heritage; Berbers have long agitated, sometimes violently, for autonomy; the government is unlikely to grant autonomy but has offered to begin sponsoring teaching Berber language in schools.

== Economy ==

'''Corporate Presence'''

The Saeder-Krupp Hydrocarbons Subsidiaries are the backbone of the economy, accounting for roughly 60% of budget revenues, 30% of GDP, and over 95% of export earnings. Algeria has the seventh-largest reserves of natural gas in the world and is the second-largest gas exporter; it ranks 14th in oil reserves. Economic policy reforms supported by the IMF and debt rescheduling from the Paris Club in the past decade have helped improve Algeria's financial and macroeconomic indicators. Because of sustained high oil prices in the past three years, Algeria's finances have further benefited from substantial trade surpluses and record foreign exchange reserves. Real GDP has risen due to higher oil output and increased government spending. The government's continued efforts to diversify the economy by attracting foreign and domestic investment outside the energy sector, however, has had little success in reducing high unemployment and improving living standards. Megacorporate-sponsored structural reform within the economy moves ahead slowly. ==References== ''This page forked from Wordman's The Sixth World A geographical index to the world of Shadowrun.'' == External Links == Submitted to the unpublished NERPS Neo-Anarchists' Guide to the World. == Virtual DID Numbers provider in Algeria == http// Algerian DID Numbers at DIDx {{Shadowiki}} CategoryUnofficial articles CategoryCountries CategoryCountries of Africa
