He 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 country is divided into 27 governorates, including the capital Cairo-icon.png Cairoball located in the Cairo-icon.png Cairo Governorateball, giving him a total area of 390,121 square miles, making him the 29th largest country in the world.

His national day is February 28th.

Summarized History

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 was bron as an 8ball. Human settlement in Egyptball dates back to at least 40,000 BC with Aterian tool manufacturing. Ancient Egyptball civilization coalesced around 3150 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 middle eastern 4balls.

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. After the Islamic conquest of Egyptball, parts of Egyptball became provinces of successive Caliphateballs and other Muslim dynasties: Rashidun Caliphate (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, absorbing Egyptball into the Ottoman-icon.png Ottoman Empireball.

Egyptball remained entirely Ottoman until 1867, except during France-icon.png Franceball occupation from 1798 to 1801. 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 Egyptball fell under British control in 1882 (Egyptball: evil Britain can't of take my canal and clay!!!!) following the Anglo-Egyptian War. 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. British occupation lasted until 1954, with the Anglo-Egyptian agreement of 1954.

The Republic of Egyptball was founded in 1953, and with the complete withdrawal of British forces (Egyptball: finally I am 100% independent) from the Suez Canal (Egyptball: mine canal, problem UK-icon.png UKball and France-icon.png Franceball?) in 1956, it marked the first time in 2,300 years that Egyptball was both fully independent and ruled by native Egyptians. Pharaoh President Gamal Abdel Nasser (pharaoh president from 1956 to 1970) introduced many reforms and created the short-lived Syria-icon.png United Arab Republicball (with Syria-icon.png Syriaball). His terms also saw the Six Day War and the creation of the international Non-Aligned Movement. His 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. He led Egyptball in the Yom Kippur War of 1973 to regain Egyptball's Sinai Peninsula (Egyptball: STOP OF TRYING OF TAKING MY CANAL & CLAY, PLEASE, REALLY OF TIRED), which Israel had occupied since the Six-Day War of 1967. This later led to the Egyptball– Israel-icon.png Israelcube Peace Treaty.

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 (Egyptball: I can into democracy!!!!), Mohamed Morsi. Unrest after the 2011 revolution and related disputes led to the 2013 Egyptball coup d'état, now Al-Sisi is the president.

How to draw

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, and you've finished.
