Egypt is a transcontinental country located in the northeast corner of Africa and the southwest corner of Asia. With a population of around 100 million inhabitants, Egypt is the 14th most populated country in the world. The capital of Egypt is Cairo. Egypt is a country with some of the longest recorded history in the world, dating back to the 6th–4th millennium BCE. Some of the earliest developments of centralized government, agriculture, writing, urbanization, and organized religion were all found within Ancient Egypt. Ancient Egypt was also home to one of the world’s first urban and literate societies. Egypt is also home to the Giza Necropolis, which is the only one of the Seven Wonders of the World to still exist.
The landscape of Egypt is dominated by the Nile River, which stretches for around 1,200 kilometers (or 750 miles). Because of its hot, dry, and sunny climate, a great majority of Egypt is desert. The Eastern Desert of Egypt covers around one-fourth of the entirety of Egypt’s land, while the Western Desert covers about two-thirds of all land. In fact, 99% of the total population uses just about 5.5% of all the land area in Egypt that is liveable. Most of these inhabitants are located around the coastal strip of the Nile River. However, climate change poses a threat to these citizens, as rising sea levels could cause flooding, and turn many into environmental refugees.
