Egypt, officially the Arab Republic of Egypt, is a country in northeastern Africa. Egypt has one of the oldest histories of any country, tracing its heritage back to the Ancient Egyptian civilization.

Tiberium Universe

First Tiberium War

At the time of the start of the First Tiberium War, Egypt's government remained what it had been for some time, a staunch supporter of the GDI. Though it was considered a Formidable Military Power, GDI had seriously underestimated Nod's military power in Africa. Their sudden invasion from Libya shocked everyone with the speed with which it overrun the country.

Under Nod occupation however Egypt would suffer massively, likely from Tiberium related maladies combined with resultant starvation. It's population fell from 56,886,000 to a mere 23,154,000 (a reduction of 59.3%). Under such conditions the return of GDI forces to Egypt was welcomed by many Egyptians as a liberation and the GDI, not wishing to disappoint apparently implemented a new Democratic government in Egypt.

But the Nod counter-offensive launched from Libya and Sudan but converging on Luxor was victorious and successfully drove the GDI out of Egypt once again. There was much bloodshed as Nod eliminated all those who were perceived as supportive of the new government the GDI had installed. Afterwards Nod would remain control for the rest of the First Tiberium War and the entire period between that and the Second Tiberium War.

Egyptian Temple of Nod

Nod built a Temple of Nod in Egypt upon their reconquest and deep within it lay the last remnants of Project ReGenesis; a Nod project designed to create a new form of human being immune to the negative effects of Tiberium that had already come under heavy attack by GDI. The GDI forces, spearheaded by the famous GDI commando Nick Parker carried out a successful raid on the Nod base containing the temple, hoping to finally put an end to this project.

Additionally Elena Petrova, a GDI scientist that had defected to Nod held Sydney Mobius, the daughter of the brilliant GDI scientist Dr. Ignatio Mobius prisoner. Petrova had subjected herself to the latest version of Project ReGenesis, becoming physically hideous but keeping her intellect mostly intact, a relative success for the project.

After it had been subjected to an Ion Cannon strike, Parker stormed the damaged temple, killing Petrova, putting an end to Project ReGenesis and rescuing Sydney. As Parker made his escape with Sydney, they rigged one of the temple's nuclear weapons to self-destruct and the resulting fuel explosion took the remains of the temple with it. However despite this victory Nod remained in control of Egypt and the temple may well even have been rebuilt.

Second Tiberium War

The rise and fall of General Hassan

With the apparent death of Kane, Egypt would become the seat of General Hassan who would eventually rise to power over the Brotherhood of Nod while at the same time secretly collaborating with the GDI. From Egypt's continuing importance however it can be surmised that Nod must have managed to prevent any further massive decline in population following their reconquest.

Hassan was based at a Nod Pyramid near Cairo but the rebellion by Anton Slavik against his rule eventually destroyed his Temple and as he attempted to escape they were able to capture him. Soon he would be personally executed by Slavik, but this was overshadowed by Kane's unexpected reappearance at the execution leading to the start of the Second Tiberium War.

Kane in Cairo

Like Hassan, Kane established his main base at a Pyramid Temple near Cairo. Within it he secretly rebuilt a terrible new weapon, the World Altering Missile which was supposed to cover the earth with Tiberium forcing the human race to bow to Nod and recieve Divination or perish. This would put an end to the GDI and win the war for Nod albeit at a terrible cost.

As Kane prepared to launch the WAM from his Pyramid Temple from Cairo and with GDI forces landing to stop him, Egypt began to become unsettled and some citizens began to ally themselves with GDI upon seeing the state the conflict was now in. In response to this an outlying settlement near Kane's Pyramid which allied itself with GDI was massacred by Nod forces in the early stages of GDI's Cairo invasion.

During McNeil's invasion of Egypt Kane's Pyramid was destroyed along with the WAM and three ICBM's which were to destroy the Philadelphia after their previous attack from Hammerfest. Cairo was occupied by GDI troops led by McNeil, ending the Second Tiberium War.

Third Tiberium War

After the Second Tiberium War, Egypt remained a Nod stronghold. The country was severely affected by the spread of Tiberium, to the point that the country was transformed into a Yellow Zone.

During the Third Tiberium War, Egypt became a battlefield once again. GDI forces launched an assault on the country once again, initially to destroy a secret lab in Casabad involved in Nod research into Liquid Tiberium weaponry.

They then moved on to destroy the port at Alexandria, hoping to keep Nod from moving any componants or prototypes for such weaponry out of Egypt, and Nod was forced to move it's liquid Tiberium componants out of Brazil instead.

Finally interpreting the 'fire and brimstone' rhetoric of Nod prisoners as referring to a coming nuclear apocalypse to be created by Nod in the near future, the GDI assaulted the nuclear facilities at Cairo that contained all Nod's remaining nuclear weapons. These facilities had also been crucial for Nod's earlier destruction of the Philadelphia, it was 'payback time' for all those that had died there.

Once the GDI had eliminated Nod's nuclear weaponry, they then turned to the Nod central administrative buildings within the base. Having destroyed these buildings, the GDI were able to put an end to Nod control over Egypt. A compliant regime was promptly installed in Cairo which governed Egypt on behalf of the GDI as far as is known for the rest of the war.

But the GDI would not enjoy their newly reestablished rule over Egypt for long. The destruction of Temple Prime in Sarajevo and the detonation of the vast deposits of liquid Tiberium stored there as part of the process of creating liquid Tiberium bombs transformed all populated areas of Egypt into the new Red Zone that the detonation created.

As Red Zones are uninhabitable to human civilization Egypt essentially ceased to exist and the several millenia of Egyptian civilization finally came to an end at the hands of a huge liquid Tiberium explosion.
