Al Djazair (Algeria) is a north African uncivilized nation, blocked off the sea by France. It's likely to be swallowed up by the French early on in the game.
Occasionally, an AI Algeria will survive with only single-state status, sometimes as far as the 1870s or further. A human player can do much better. It may be a good idea for Algeria to make friends with France as soon as possible, and focus primarily on civilizing. From there, Sokoto makes a good conquest (it rarely gets attacked successfully before 1880 due to its inland position, but its military can be overwhelmed by superior technology) so you have a springboard for colonies later on.
The ultimate test of Algeria is to reclaim that land lost to France and form Algeria in the form it is today, as Africa's largest nation.
