Algiers is a formable country in the Maghreb by any country with Algerian culture or with Berber culture and capital in Algiers, High Plains, Ouled Nail, Kabylia or the North Sahara areas. In 1444, two countries can form Algiers : it's Flag of Mzab Mzab and Flag of Touggourt Touggourt. It exists also if the campaign was started after 1517.


Execute decision.pngForm Algerian Nation

The central part of the Maghreb has always been subjected to the whims of more powerful states based in the east or west. We must not allow history to repeat itself. By seizing the great port of Al-Djazair as well as some of the other important coastal cities in the region we can lay the foundation of a strong united state with a maritime focus which will allow us to surpass our historical enemies in the east and west.

Raid Coasts[edit]

Raiding coasts is a naval ability added in the Mare Nostrum expansion which allows fleets belonging to nations with the raid coasts idea, which in the base game belongs to the Maghrebi culture group (Flag of Morocco Morocco, Flag of Tlemcen Tlemcen, and Flag of Tunis Tunis),Flag of Habsan Habsan and Flag of The Knights The Knights to raid the coasts of other nations for loot and sailors of a different religion; this idea is also available for custom nations. Historically, this ability reflects the raids by Barbary pirates which were active in the 16th to 19th centuries. Raiding can provide a significant early-game boost to the income and sailor pools of nations that can do it.
