Egypt, officially the Arab Republic of Egypt, is an African nation on the human homeworld Earth.[1][2] The adjective for Egypt is Egyptian.[3]


Topography and ecology[edit]

It is bisected by the Nile River and is considered tropical and arid.[1][2] Its capital city is Cairo, located near the Nile Delta.[4][2]



Rise of humanity[edit]

"These are pre-Covenant Sangheili ruins. They were already ancient history before humanity built the pyramids."
Spartan Olympia Vale comments on ruins on Sanghelios, comparing them to the pyramids of Egypt to signify their great age.[5]

Ancient Egyptian civilization coalesced over 6,000 years prior to the end of the Covenant war.[Note 1] After the eventual unification of Earth's nations under the Unified Earth Government, Egypt's strategic location became vitally important to the United Nations Space Command.[1][2]

Human-Covenant War[edit]

  1. ^ a b Egypt is thought to have been founded c. 3150 BCE. According to the Halo Encyclopedia (2009 edition), however, by the 26th Century Egypt had been around for over 6,000 years, meaning it must have actually been established hundreds of years prior to this date.
