SW: Map of Egypt by ThanyTony SW: Map of Egypt by ThanyTony
=UPDATE July 7th, 2015: Massive changes, better proportioned and added a Neuroi Hive=

Yet another detailed map from a country in the Strike Witches universe...and it was HARD to make.
Since Islam doesn't exists in this universe, that means I have to make its regions based on the Prolemaic Egypt and the maps aviable are very confusing...so I had to pull some magic here to be able to make the regions...but I am glad for the end result.

The fact that Egypt in the SW still remains untouched...it's amazing, It must be one amazing country to see, how the Egyptian Greek culture evolved here.

Enjoy!

By the way, how could the Zoroastrianism can spread into the North African region but Egypt? Why?

Because Egyptians are VERY stern about their things actually, especially their religion, it's VERY suprising, they weren't as "Welcoming" to foreings beyond the need for trading, that's why they didn't went on to conquer further to the west or explore other places in Africa despite totally having the possibility to do so, I mean the Nile goes as deep as Uganda, if they had that deep desire to expand I can assure you today we'd call the entire East Africa "Egypt".

And also Egyptians had been Conquered and invidaded by persians several times, so they wouldn't be very fond of them, it says a lot about the perception of Persians to Egyptians when they basically handed the entirety of their territory to Alexander the Great, they prefered to be under Macedonian rule than under Persian Rule, imagine that.

This is an old map thought, I didn't know as much about it as I do, I am planning to remake it one day and here add a couple of different things such as Buddhism in the area (Which is true, Buddhism spread this far).

I see, and how does Zoroastrianism itself spread into so wide area?

Remember what I told you about the arabs running away in the other comment?
Due to the proximity ,it's very likely some of them practiced Zoroastrianism, so they could have brought it 
with them when they settled in North Africa.

Ah, now I understand. So they convert themselves to Zoroastrianism.

I though that even in SW universe, the capital of Egypt was Cairo.

I thought Alexandria makes more sense, also, there wouldn't be a "Cairo" perse given the circuntances of this universe because the name to my knowledge comes from arabic...which didn't make it to Egypt as the Muslim conquest did not happen so there wouldn't be a Cairo in the SW.
It would have another name.
