known as the Arab Republic of Egypt and locally known as the Jumhuriyat Misr
al-Arabiyah or just Misr. The country attained independence on February 28,

the revolution that began in 1952. However, it was in 3200 BC that the two
regions of the lower and upper lands were first united politically. Presently,
the country has a presidential system of Government.

According
to the Central Intelligence Agency, Egypt’s government is a republic comprised
of 27 governorates and a president. The
government has been in a somewhat constant state of revision since the
citizen-lead revolution of 2011 and the subsequent sporadic riots that have
taken place since.

since 2014.

force and air defense force have a combined strength of about 450,000. The
army, with about 320,000 troops, represents more than two-thirds of that

Your
quality of life (whatever that is) depends mainly on your income, and social
class. You could say that there are two versions of Egypt; the developing
country version were people are struggling to make daily living, and that has a
continuum from extreme poverty and homelessness, to a sturggling middle class
that barely affords the basic necessities every month.Then there is another
Egypt for the upper middle class and rich people. An Egypt where people shop
from label stores, send their kids to good expensive schools, work in good
places, receive good salaries. Basically, they are conomically living in a
developed country and for them life is really good.However, both versions of
Egypt are not politically free, there are basic rights violations when you cross
the lines, criticising power has consequences, and on a less dangerous tone (or
a different kind of dangerous) both groups suffer from low product standards,
and might be paying a lot to receive nothing, or to even receive harmful
products. General services such as healthcare, and safety are not that good
because of the lack of standards, however all these things affect the poor more
than the rich.Overall, if you have money, live in a good area, avoid politics,
your life would be very good for a developing country. Countries total gross
domestic product is 336.3 billion USD

15 to 20 percent .

Secession of State is when a state gets its independence
from a country. For example in 1991 14 states got their independence from USSR.
This was one of successful secessions in history. Usually countries don’t want
their states to secede from them, because they don’t want to lose their resources
and territory. That’s why many secessions tries end up with a civil war
