France map

In the Florentine's book of geography, France is the center of the world! Is that thanks to Pasteur and to the doctors of the time? Europe and the United States of America have a demographic weight more important than the other countries, and especially, relatively much more important than today.
Algeria has a little less than 5 million inhabitants, including the French, Spanish, Italian or Maltese colonists (approximately 700 thousand colonists).

Algeria made great progress since the French occupation. It now has 14.000 km of roads and 3.500 km of railways. The principal line, parallel with the sea, links Oran to Algiers and Constantine, with prolongation on Tunis. (...)
(Algeria) tends more and more to becoming like small France opposite and close to large one.
