The United Republic of Tanzania is a nation in East Africa. A region with a lengthy and diverse history, Tanzania came under Portugal's control in the 16th Century. Portugal was ousted by the Omani Sultans, who held the region until Germany conquered most of it in the 19th Century, calling it German East Africa. However, after World War I, Germany was forced to give up all of its colonies and the region was given to the British Empire. It remained a British colony (called Tanganyika, later Tanzania) until it achieved independence in 1961.

Tanzania in A Different FleshEdit

Fossils of creatures very much like sims were found in an eastern region of Africa, a clue to the species' origin.[1]

Literary commentEdit

While nothing is specified beyond "East Africa," the context makes fairly clear that the reference is to the Olduvai Gorge, which in OTL is part of Tanzania. While that specific nation, or even a reasonable analog, may not necessarily exist in the Flesh timeline, the reference is placed here for convenience.

Tanzania in In the Presence of Mine EnemiesEdit

Tanganyika came back under German rule after Britain's defeat in the Second World War. It remained part of the Reich into the 21st century.[2]

Tanzania in WorldwarEdit

Tanganyika (along with the rest of Africa) was occupied by the Race during the Race Invasion of Tosev 3 in 1942. It was recognised as a Race colony after the Peace of Cairo in 1944.[3]
