Welp. Evidently I got a lot to learn about Egypt. So I'm slowly reading the IC (with posts with the word Egypt in it) though I'm also watching videos on chemistry. So yeah.
*Huzzah he lives!*

Nah, son. Britain was all like "yo, why my colonies be all uppity an' shit?!" And Lord Durham laid it straight: "they be wantin' legislation with representation, dawg."

Suggestion. Urabi Pasha, popular general and shrewd politician, might cause a ruckus as he did in the OTL, and establish a constitutional monarchy. Perhaps he rockets to fame by suppressing the Mahdiist Revolt?

Now with that, I move on to the North German Confederation. I have a draft at the ready, but I await several more European players before I almost kill off the Crown Prince.


Sweet! Who are Egypt's allies, and who hates it (besides France)?

I (Albania) am your ally. A very close ally actually

Sounds good to me :D

Questions I have:
1. What do I need to reply to in the IC? I will make a post tonight (or soon).
2. How are Ottoman-Egyptian relations? I assume not that hot.
3. How are France-Egyptian relations? I noticed something about them getting better.
4. What is that question in the OP mean?

EDIT:
5. What is the political divisions of the nation?
6. What is my status in regards to Syria, Palestine, and Lebanon? Do they like Egyptian occupation? I don't believe they would, but I think with autonomy they could be subdued.
7. What is British Dijbouti?

EDIT 2:
8. What is the pace?
9. What's happen exactly at the Cairo Conference and what triggered it. I just see that it ended colonization? Idk. I'm confused.
10. is that map updated?
11. Is that spec of dark blue in West Africa, north of Albania, and in China Egyptian territory?

Start on page 20. But I have a comprehensive list.

Seljuq Kyiv wrote:Time to spill the beans on my atrocities from the word go.

- Destroyed the British textile industry in Egypt
- Broke the Treaty of Balta-Liman repeatedly, and with the British too!
- Instituted mass confiscations of private property under military threat for 'land reforms'
- Slaughtered 20-odd French, British, and Russian diplomats, and 30-or-so Turko-Circassian aristocrats at a feast
- Guilt of massacre pinned on France and an unneeded heir presumptive; false-flag operation used to justify a full-scale mobilisation and invasion
- Confiscated under threat of force the entire Suez Canal and supported anti-French pogroms
- Brought about the return Abdelkader ibn Muhiedinne, the greatest badass motherhugger and national hero Algeria had ever seen until then who had repeatedly defeated the French at their own game before
- Burnt, sacked, and looted French cities and cathedrals for gold, booty, and slaves to fuel plantations (phase 2 would have been to send Arab settlers in)
- Built the Kra Canal
- Fueled fervent Berber, Islamist, and anti-French nationalism which erupted into the Kabylie Revolt and the Algerian Liberation. Wasn't expecting for a quick French surrender, but that worked well for propaganda.
- Gave them a steady supply of guns, propaganda, jihadist (ghazi, rather) sentiment and training.
- No matter who ruled over Algeria (France, Austro-Hungary, the Ottomans, Egypt, the Berbers themselves), Egypt would benefit. It was only a question of how much Egypt benefited (with France, heavy concessions might be inflicted; with Austro-Hungary, there could always be Kabylie Revolt 2.0; the Ottomans would be too weak to exercise de facto occupation, and such a task would fall to Egypt; an independent Berber nation would be a great ally and a good starting point for a planned Greater North African Co-Prosperity Sphere).
- Gained international recognition from Austro-Hungary while at the same time selling a miniscule sum of Canal shares for an exorbitant fee, a feat repeated with every other European nation it dealt with
- Got rid of outdated and weak steam frigates for a great sum of money and captured the majority of the navy of the world's second-greatest naval power in exchange
- Secured a future ally against Ottoman aggression (or from another), while at the same time securing Egypt's neutrality in the event of a conflict if it was convenient
- Gained a colonial empire, which gave both an economic and prestige boost and defined Egypt's place vis-a-vis the decaying Porte
- Acquired French guns and armaments, weapons designed for open plains like the Rhineland or Egyptian deserts, and certainly an upgrade to one of the best of the period
- Secured future ultimata and concessions against Ethiopia for the murder of diplomats and the burning of the diplomatic mission
- Beat the Germans to Paris; permitted to march through in peace if not for Prussian grapeshot
- SACKED COMMUNARD PARIS, DESTROYED THE BULK OF THE COMMUNARD ARMY AND MASSACRED OR OTHERWISE ENSLAVED PARISIANS; LOOTED HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF FRANCS AND RECLAIMED EGYPTIAN RELICS FROM THE LOUVRE
- Checked Italian expansion into the Red Sea
- Directly caused the Ethiopian Civil War, and set up Menelik II as puppet Emperor
- Secured MINING RIGHTS in European countries
- Survived British threats
- Made Albania and Siam Egyptian spheres of influence through economic integration/mining rights and aided industrialisation; placed Consuls that serve as Princely State Residents that have unlimited reign in each respective court
- NEGOTIATED INDEPENDENCE AND THE SYRIA AS WELL AS ONE-WAY MILITARY AID IN RETURN FOR FALSE PROMISES OF ALGERIA
- DEFEATED A WESTERN POWER AND FORCED HARSH REPARATIONS AND LAND CONCESSIONS (would have established Napoleon III as a Prussian puppet too)
- Married into Albanian succession and made doubly sure that Egyptian heirs would inherit; positioned 200,000 Egyptian soldiers paid from Albanian coffers in case Albania does not find itself pliable to Egypt
- Major prestige boost in the cultural shows and the Conference of Cairo
- Seized the entire western Red Sea coast; made sure Orabi Pasha would not be in a position to threaten the Egyptian state
- Executed the previous Lebanese governor and replaced him with a more pliable alternative
- Secured Prussian military training, alliance
- Established Egyptian self-sufficience
- Commenced Arab nationalism in Lebanon
- Backed Jabal Shammar to annihilate the Sauds of Nejd
- Pressured the Ottoman Empire to transfer administration of Dayr az-Zour to Egypt, thus ceding all of Syria to Egyptian hands

This is not even all of the extensive OOC diplomacy and back dealing I've conducted in the past five months, including getting Phoenix2012 to secede Armenia under supposed independence, knowing full well that it made Russian enroachment easier — a buffer state would have been a moot point after the Russian Black Sea navy operated once again — and the fate of Algeria.

If I leave now, I leave with a healthy track record whose time is long past.


Adding another one.
- Instituted prisoner labour camps so that the fellahin could make that shift into an industrialised, workers society.

1. Nothing, actually. You are free to focus on internal things.
2. Pretty good, minus some border tension.
3. Egypt only had a bone to pick with the Third Republic of Trochu/Favre, not Napoleon II or subsequent governments. France might not see things the same way, depending on its current player.
4. Do we restart or revive and continue?
5. Probably inherited Ottoman divisions.
6. They don't.
7. A single city, Victoria, in a yet-unknown location (OOCly, at least) in Djibouti.
8. The pace is set by yourself and others.
9. The Portuguese landgrab. It regulated colonisation.
10. As of 1 January.
11. West Africa, yes. North of Albania is Montenegro. China, yes.
