Tunisia is a sovereign independent republic. In 1881 the French established a protectorate over the country which was nominally under Turkish suzerainty. The protectorate treaties of Bardo (12 May 1881) and La Marsa (8 June 1883) were superseded by the conventions of Paris (3 June 1955), which gave Tunisia full internal autonomy from 1 Sept. 1955, and finally by the protocol of 20 March 1956, by which France recognized the» inderieudence of Tunisia and abrogated the former treaties and conventions.
