The Egyptian civilization along the Nile River was one of the ancient world's earliest and most influential empires. From pyramids to mummies to hieroglyphs, the unique and mysterious lore of this region in northeastern Africa still engages the imagination. While much has changed over the centuries, Egypt remains a fascinating place. Traditionally, Egypt's moderate political stance in the Arab world has given the country a strategic place on the world stage and made it a stabilizing force in the Middle East. However, in 2011 Egypt underwent a revolution that ousted longtime president Hosni Mubarak from power. Today, Egypt faces political and economic uncertainty, as its newly elected government attempts to rule under the country's new constitution.
