The Danubian Protectorate of Tunisia [Ara: في الدانوب محمية من تونس] is the first overseas territory within the Danubian Federation [Ara: الاتحاد الدانوب]. Situated on the Mediterranean coast of North Africa, Tunisia is midway between the Atlantic Ocean and the Nile Delta.

Under the leadership of a native Bey, the independent state of Tunisia first came into conflict with the Federation over pirates. Raiders, hailing from Tunisia, attacked and pillaged ships, belonging to Danubian citizens. After an escalation of tension, Tunisia was invaded and occupied by the private Danubian corporation, the Adriatic Trading Company, asserting ownership over the region, with a supportive Bey.

After a brief conflict, Tunisia was occupied, and placed under the protection of the Danubian Federation. Following a short military command, Matthias von Marius-Parsifal became the protectorate's first, albeit temporary, Governor-General. With his guidance, stability was ensured, with Tunisia remaining peaceful. President Soukup-Valenta appointed Major Jovan Lilic, ex-Minister of War, as Matthias' successor.

Forms of Government

The Governor-Generalship

  • Appointed by the Federal Government
  • Exercises complete authority within Tunisia

Passing Legislature

Bills may originate in either the Senate or the House, where they must pass a majority vote, and if passed, are sent and voted upon by the opposite chamber. Should both votes succeed, and no veto be placed, the bill will be drafted into Tunisian law. Alternatively, the Governor-General may also institute and repeal legislature, in which case, either chamber may voice their concerns.

The Danubian Protectorate of Tunisia is divided into the following 24 districts:

The District of Tunis is the location of Tunisia's capital, located on the northern coast, as a port city. As the capital, the Governor-General retains full control, unlike others. Each district is appointed a governor, almost always a Danubian migrant with sound education, with the prime function to maintain order as leading executive. District autonomy is kept low, with the Governor-General maintaining the final say in all district affairs.
