Government Type:
Authoritarian Regime


The Kingdom of Egypt is a minor North African country, releasable from the Flag of United Kingdom United Kingdom. While a puppet of the UK in real life, in-game it does not exist, having cores on British Egypt.

Much of Egypt is the Sahara Desert, and the western part is inpassable. The Nile River is surrounded by plains. The most important part is the Suez Canal, which reduces travel time to and from the Mediterranean Sea. Another important area is the Nile Valley where most of Egypt's manpower resides. Egypt consists of eight states.

Released, Egypt borders the United Kingdom, Flag of Italy Italy, and Flag of France France. Under certain circumstances, it may also border Flag of Libya Libya, Flag of Sudan Sudan, Flag of Israel Israel, or Flag of Palestine Palestine.

Played correctly, Egypt can become a North African powerhouse, capable of turning the war in one side's favor. One can also aim to get the Freegypt achievement, however that requires releasing Egypt as a puppet and taking control of it.

Historical Background[edit]

Egypt had already been under British occupation from 1882, when they would take it from the Ottomans. During the First World War, the Ottomans tried to attack the Suez Canal, but were repulsed.

During 1922, Egypt declared independence under King Fuad, but British troops still continued to occupy the country. The British still retained control of the Suez Canal.

King Fuad died in 1936 and King Farouk took over. Alàrmed by the Italian invasion of Flag of Ethiopia Ethiopia, he negotiated the withdrawal of British troops from Egypt, except at the Suez Canal.

After the outbreak of the Second World War, Egypt remained neutral, severing ties with the Axis Powers. However, when the Italians joined the war, Egypt was invaded by Italian forces, and the British used Egypt as a base of operations to protect the Suez Canal.

After a series of intense battles against the Germans and italians, including the decisive El Alamein, the Axis Powers were finally kicked out from Egypt in 1942.

Egypt would remain a British protectorate until 1952, where a coup overthrew the monarchy and ended British military presence in Egypt.
