Egypt is a poor country. It has a hot, arid climate, and is bordered by Libya, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, and the Middle east.

In the Necroa Virus DLC, if the player starts in Egypt, there is a unique storyline about the discovery of a tomb at the Pyramid of Giza.

Country Information

IG Factbook: "The regularity and richness of the annual Nile River flood, coupled with semi-isolation provided by deserts to the east and west, allowed for the development of one of the world's great civilizations. A unified kingdom arose circa 3200 B.C., and a series of dynasties ruled in Egypt for the next three millennia. The last native dynasty fell to the Persians in 341 B.C., who in turn were replaced by the Greeks, Romans, and Byzantines. The Arabs introduced Islam and the Arabic language in the 7th century then Britain seized control of Egypt's government in 1882. Egypt acquired full sovereignty from Britain in 1952. The completion of the Aswan High Dam in 1971 and the resultant Lake Nasser have altered the time-honored place of the Nile River in the agriculture and ecology of Egypt. A rapidly growing population (the largest in the Arab world), limited arable land, and dependence on the Nile all continue to overtax resources and stress society."

  • Egypt is currently the only poor country in-game to have an airport.
  • Some boats that go from Asia to Europe pass through Egypt, using the Suez Canal.
