For example "Algeria" which in "Maps Me" mobile app have 2 parts - "Central" and "Coast". when i want did query like this:

Overpass admits areas that are mapped in OSM, not areas that 3rd party apps (like OSMAND or Maps.me) create themselves for maps download.

If I am not wrong, the biggest area you can query in Algeria are the wilayas, that are 48 if I am not wrong. Bigger than that is the whole Algeria, probably too big for many overpass queries.
