Amazighia is a nation situated on the northern coast of Africa. Amazighia has a long history, and has been taken over by many nationalities, including Phoenecians and Punics, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, and French. Through that period, the Berber people survived, now still representing a large majority of Amazighians (although there has been plenty of mixing, and not all Berber-speakers are completely Berber). Religions have fluctuated, too. Indigenous Berber beliefs lost ground to the Greek and Roman pantheon, which lost out to Christianity. Then, in the 600s, the Islamic invasions began. Over the next few centuries, it became largely Arabized, with some Berber holdouts. Then, in the 1600s, France gained power and much of the population converted to Christianity or Catharism. However, some Muslims remained. Finally, in 1948, Amazighia was free from France, and in 1951 became self-governing.
