It is bordered by the Mediterranean to the north, Sudan-icon.png Sudanball to the south, Israel-icon.png Israelcube to the east with the Red Sea, and Libya-icon.png Libyaball to the west. The countryball is divided into 27 governorateballs, including the capital Cairo-icon.png Cairoball located in the Cairo-icon.png Cairo Governorateball, giving it a total area of 390, 121 square miles, making its the 29th largest countryball in the world. As of 2019, it maintains a population of 100 million inhabitants, the 14th most populous in the world.

    It is a member of the African Union-icon.png African Unionball, Arab League-icon.png Arab Leagueball, and OIC-icon.png OICball due to being a majority-Muslim countryball in North Africa and the Arabian Peninsula, as well as the UN-icon.png UNball like almost every other countryball.

    Its national day is July 23rd.

    Summarized history[edit | edit source]

    The history of Egyptball has been of long and rich, due to the flow of the Nile River, with its fertile banks and delta. Its rich history also comes from its native inhabitants and outside influence. Much of Egyptball ancient history was a mystery until the secrets of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs were deciphered with the discovery and help of the Rosetta Stone. The Great Pyramid of Giza is the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World still standing. The Lighthouse of Alexandria, one of the other Seven Wonders, is gone. The Library of Alexandria was the only one of its kind for centuries.

    Egyptball started as a mix of 2-icon.png 2balls and 8-icon.png 8balls. Human settlement in Egyptball dates back to at least 40,000 BC with Aterian tool manufacturing. Ancient Egyptball civilization coalesced around 3100 BC with the political unification of Upper Egypt-icon.png Upper and Lower Egypt-icon.png Lower Egyptball under the first pharaoh of the First Dynasty, Narmer. Predominately native Egyptball rule lasted until the end of the Late Period in 332 BC. Soon after, Egyptball was taken over by Achaemenid-icon.png Achaemenid Empireball.

    In 332 BC, Macedon-icon.png Macedonian ruler Alexander the Great conquered Egyptball and established the Hellenistic Ptolemaic Egypt-icon.png Ptolemaic Kingdomball, whose first Pharaoh was one of Alexander's former generals, Ptolemy I Soter. The Ptolemies had to fight native rebellions and were involved in foreign and civil wars that led to the decline of the kingdom and its final annexation by Rome. The death of Cleopatra ended the nominal independence of Egyptball resulting in Egyptball becoming one of the many provinces of the SPQR-icon.png Roman Empireball.

    Roman rule in Egyptball (including Byzantine-icon.png Byzantineball) lasted from 30 BC to 641 AD. Coptic-icon.png Coptball was born when primitive Christianity came to Alexandria-icon.png Alexandriaball, shortly after the ascension of Jesus Christ and during the reign of the SPQR-icon.png SPQRball in Egypt around 42 AD. From Alexandriaball, Christianity spread throughout Egypt. By the beginning of the 3rd century AD, the Church of Alexandria was recognized as one of Christendom's four Apostolic Sees. It agreed with the Egyptian language (Coptic), which gave rise to the Coptic Patriarchate of Alexandriaball, this lived within the Byzantine-icon.png Byzantine Empireball until it was conquered by the [[Egyptball|Mamluk-icon (rawr).pngSultanate Mamlukball]]Mamluk-icon.png and this later by the Ottoman-icon.png Ottoman Empireball.

    The Christians Egyptballs (Copts) preserved their language (derived from the ancient Egyptian language) and religion to avoid persecution from radical Muslim Egyptballs. Under Muslim rule, Copts, along with other minority religionballs, paid taxes called jizya, in order to be protected and was an equivalent to zakah in Islam. Copts had little access to political power most of the time and were exempt from military service. But they were allowed to practice their religion unmolested. Their position improved dramatically under the rule of Muhammad Ali in the early 19th century. It abolished the Jizya and allowed Egyptian Christians (Copts) to enroll in the army. In late 19th century, Coptballs started to be appointed to be judges in Egyptian courts and started earning political rights and representation in government.

    Speaking of the Islamic conquest of Egyptball, parts of Egyptball became provinces of successive Caliphateballs and other Muslim dynasties: Abbasid-icon.png Rashidun Caliphateball (632-661), Umayyad Caliphateball (661–750), Abbasid-icon.png Abbasid Caliphateball (750-909), Fatimid-icon.png Fatimid Caliphateball (909-1171), Ayyubid-icon.png Ayyubid Sultanateball (1171–1260), and the Mamluk-icon.png Mamluk Sultanateball of Egyptball (1250-1517). In 1517, Ottoman-icon.png Ottomanball Sultan Selim I captured Cairo on January 22, 1517, after the victory of the Ottoman-icon.png Ottoman Empireball troops in the Battle of Rydania, absorbing Egyptball into the Ottoman-icon.png Ottoman Empireball.

    When Ottomanball got into Egyptball's clay, Ottoman also had access to the African continent. Egypt-Eyalet-icon.png Egyptball becomes a province (vilayat) of the Ottoman Empire. But already in 1524 there was a rebellion against Turkish rule. In 1576, the Ottoman-icon.png Ottoman Empireball established direct power in the territory of Upper Egypt, which had previously been under the de facto rule of the Bedouin sheikhs.

    In November 1768, Egypt-Eyalet-icon.png Egypt Eyaletball breaks off vassal relations with the Ottoman Empire, and in July 1770, Egypt-Eyalet-icon.png Egypt Eyaletball proclaims its independence. During the Russian-Turkish war (1768-1774), Egypt-Eyalet-icon.png Egypt Eyaletball entered into a military alliance with Russia and, with the support of the Russian fleet, began a war with Ottoman-icon.png Ottoman Empireball. In 1771, Egyptball captured Damascus-icon.png Damascusball and occupied Syria-icon.png Syriaball. However, by the end of the 18th century, Egypt-Eyalet-icon.png Egypt Eyaletball again fell under the influence of Ottoman-icon.png Ottoman Empireball.

    Egyptball remained entirely Ottoman except during Napoleonic-icon.png Franceball's occupation from 1798 to 1801. although British Empire-icon.png UKball forced Napoleonic-icon.png Franceball to withdraw, Franceball's liberal ideas would seen to affect Egyptball turning them into a smelly frog eater minor revolutionary state under the rule of Muhammad Ali. Poor Egyptianballs were allowed to join the army, wore modern uniforms, and were supported by European experts. After expanding to conquering Sennar-icon.png Funj Sultanateball, it got into to fights with the Ottomanball over Syria-icon.png Levanti clay Lebanon-icon.png, soldier alert, Egyptball failed to expand its clay once more. France-icon.png Franceball wanted to get access to French colonies in Asia, so the Suez Canal was officially bulit with the help of UK-icon.png UKball. Egypt also became rich during the American Civil War because Europeanballs wanted to buy cotton somewhere because USA-icon.png USAball was busy.

    Starting in 1867, Egyptball became a nominally autonomous tributary state called the Khedivate of Egypt-icon.png Khedivate of Egyptball. However, Khedivate of Egypt-icon.png Khedivate of Egyptball fell under British control in 1882 following the Anglo-Egyptian War. Despite British colonization, it continued to be under Ottoman influence until 1914 where the Khedivate was replaced by a Sultan. Egyptball contributed to pushing the Ottomans out of the Levant for Britainball. After the end of World War I and following the Egyptball Revolution of 1919, the Kingdom of Egypt-icon.png Kingdom of Egyptball was established. While a de-facto independent state, the UK-icon.png United Kingdomball retained control over foreign affairs, defense, and other matters. Some Copts participated in the Egyptian national movement for independence and occupied many influential positions. Unfortunately for Coptball this period was short time. British occupation lasted until 1954, with the Anglo-Egyptian agreement of 1954.

    The Republic of Egypt-icon (1953-1958).png Republic of Egyptball was founded in 1953, and with the complete withdrawal of British forces from the Suez Canal in 1956, it marked the first time in 2,300 years that Egyptball was both fully independent and ruled by native Egyptians. Coptic-icon.png Coptballs have faced identity crisis after the 1952 coup d'état that transformed Egypt into a republic. Pharaoh President Gamal Abdel Nasser (pharaoh president from 1956 to 1970) introduced many socialist reforms, such as nationalizations and land reforms, he also turned Egyptball into a secular republic and persecuted Muslim Brotherhood-icon.png Islamists. In 1958 he created the short-lived Syria-icon.png United Arab Republicball (with FSA-icon.png Syriaball). Their terms also saw the Six-Day War and the creation of the international Non-Aligned Movementball.

    Nasser's successor, Anwar Sadat (pharaoh president from 1970 to 1981) changed Egypt's trajectory, departing from many of the political, and economic tenets of Nasserism, re-instituting a multi-party system, and launching the Infitah economic policy, that introduced Egypt to neoliberalism. It led Egyptball in the Yom Kippur War of 1973 to regain North Sinai-icon.png South Sinai-icon.png Sinai Peninsulaball, which Israel had occupied since the Six-Day War of 1967. This later led to the Egyptball–Israel-icon.png Israelcube Peace Treaty. Another thing Egyptball got involved under its presidency was a pan-Arab union with Libyan Arab Republic-icon.png Libyaball, that being the Libyan Arab Republic-icon.png Federation of Arab Republicsball (with Syria-icon (1963-1972).png Syriaball in it. However in 5 years Libya regretted the idea and disbanded it. Sadat also started bonding with Muslim Brotherhood-icon.png Islamists and got rid of secularism in 1980, but he would be assassinated by them one year later, resulting in the succeeding governments continuing to crack down on Muslim Brotherhood-icon.png Islamists.

    Recent Egyptian history has been dominated by events following nearly thirty years of rule by former pharaoh president Hosni Mubarak. In 2011, Egyptball underwent a Vivelaspin.gif revolution (aka a country's mental breakdown) that deposed Mubarak and resulted in the first democratically elected pharaoh president in Egyptian history, Mohamed Morsi, who was associated with the Muslim Brotherhood-icon.png Muslim Brotherhood. Unrest after the 2011 revolution and related disputes led to the 2013 Egyptball coup d'état, now Al-Sisi is the pharaoh president.

    Until recently, Christian Egyptballs were required to obtain presidential approval for even minor repairs in churches. Although the law was eased in 2005 by handing down the authority of approval to the governors, Coptic-icon.png Copts continue to face many obstacles and restrictions in building new churches. Today Egypt-icon.png Egyptball provides Coptic-icon.png Coptballs the best educational services, and Muslim and Copt Egyptballs protested together against the military regime, and both are allowed in participation in government of Egyptball and has equal rights. #together_of_bringing_success

    • The Cairo metropolitan area has only 25 traffic lights. And look that there are more than 20 million people.
    • One of the curiosities of Egypt is that camels are part of the traffic in various places in Giza and Uber is one of the best transport options for those traveling independently in the country.
    • Portuguese and Spaniards are world famous for having explored the seas around the world, but what many don't know is that the sailing boat is a creation of Egypt.
    • Even today artifacts from Ancient Egypt and mummies are found. Across the country, several archaeologists are excavating. One of the most excavated places is the Valley of the Kings, in Luxor, where the mummy of Pharaoh Tutankhamun was found.

    • According to its ancestral tongue, Coptic is the same as the language spoken by Ancient Egyptball, but uses an alphabet based on the Greek alphabet.

    How to draw[edit | edit source]

    Draw Egyptball is almost simple:

    1. Divide the basic circle shape into three horizontal stripes
    2. Color them of this red, white and black
    3. Draw in the white stripe the coat of arms of Egypt using this colour
    4. Draw the eyes, and eventually a fez(or a pharaohs hat if you want), and you've finished.
