Lower Nubia


The Republic of Lower Nubia, commonly known as Lower Nubia or Nubia, is a landlocked country lying in the Eastern Desert along the north-east African coast. Lower Nubia includes the originally terra nullius territory of Bir Tawil alongside shared sovereignty of the Halai'b Triangle, and is bordered by the nations of Egypt, to the north, and Sudan, to the south. Lower Nubia, despite the desert climate, is the 13th most densely populated country in the world at 1012 people per kilometer. With the vast majority of the population living within the capital city of Napata, which is the financial and industrial heart of the country. Lower Nubia is also the 170th largest sovereign state in the world and 147th for most populated country at 2,086,110 people as of 2017.

The Nile and north-eastern Africa has been occupied by early Neolithic people since 8,000 BC, with people from Sudan and the Sahara having a shared culture there between their two areas, and with the Egypt of the period. The region referred to as Nubia today participated in the Neolithic revolution by the 5th millenium BC. Where the Egyptians referred to Nubia as "Ta-Seti," or "The Land of the Bow," since the Nubians were known to be expert archers. The region was conquered by Thutmose I of the New Kingdom of Egypt around 1500 BC and was then home to the Kingdom of Kush which conquered Egypt in the 8th century BC. The land was Christianised by the 4th century, after invasion by the Ethiopian Kingdom of Axum and was thereafter occupied by three Christian kingdoms, Nobatia, Alodia, and Makuria, of which the latter occupied the land for nearly a millennium. The slow decline of these kingdoms allowed their conquest by the Islamic Ottoman and Sennar Sultanates by the 16th century, which brought about rapid Islamisation and the partial Arabisation of the Nubian people. The region was fully unified under the Khedivate of Egypt, but was then established as a protectorate of Britain in 1914. The land is now split between Egypt, Sudan and Lower Nubia.

Lower Nubia was declared a sovereign state, forming its own government and constitution, on the 22nd December, 2017, under president Basil Bisharin. The constitution is an adaption on the wards of the municipal territory of the city of Napata, established in 2000, the prior legal code in the region. The territory itself has been used by nomadic populaces for millennia. The area was permanently settled since 1973, when Coptic refugees fled persecution in Southern-Egypt. WA aid organisations distributed food and water to the displaced peoples by 1974, who had, by 1980, reach 10,000 people. In 1978 the Coptic Church of Alexandria, under Pope Shenouda III, opened schools and Churches to emphasise charity and love, giving dispensation for Coptic aid and Church activity in the refugee group. In 1999 the Greater Nile Oil Pipeline extended the Oil pipelines of North Sudan to Bir Tawil, establishing a refinery and Oil burning plant in the territory. A cheaper alternative to investing in the unstable North Sudan, with an easily exploitable workforce and grey economy in the financing by the Sudanese government, even allowing indirect claim to the Halai'b area. The minimal taxation within the territory, but the capable workforce, attracted a high incidence of tax avoidance transactions and work through the city, with the region being coined the "Liechtenstein of Africa", due to its tax haven status.
