Kemet, officially the Kemetic Empire (Kemetic: Nesewat Kemet "realm of Kemet"), also referred to as Egypt in English, is the most powerful sovereign state in Africa and a superpower. It is also the oldest existent nation in the world, being more than 5000 years old. Kemet is ruled by a Pharaoh, who is believed to be the child of Ra and is worshipped as a living god.

Kemet borders Carthage, Saharia and Kanem to the west; Central Africa, the Kitara Empire and Somalia to the South; Sumeria and Sassania to the east and Alexandria to the north. The capital of Kemet is Waset, one of the largest cities on Earth. Kemet is one of the largest economies in the world, and is one of the last remaining absolute monarchies. 

With one of the longest histories, second only to Sumeria, Kemet was founded more than 5000 years ago by Narmer, the first Pharaoh. It is considered one of the cradles of civilization and brought human civilization to a new high with their developments of writing, architecture, urbanisation, religion, government and human rights. Kemet is famous for its many monuments, such as the Great Pyramids, the Sphinx, the Temple of Waset and the Lighthouse of Alexandria. Kemet has been a monarchy since its foundation, though it was interrupted by the State of Kemet in the years of 1920 to 1940.

Kemet has a population of more than 300 million and is the most populous state in Africa. Most of Kemet's population lives in cities, with majority of it living near the banks of the Nile. Large parts of Kemet are covered by the Deshret, the largest sand desert in the world. The Kemetic people are the largest ethnic group in the state, with Nubians, Arabs and Ethiopians forming a significant minority. Kemet is a member of the United Nations and is a permanent member of its Security Council.

Etymology

The official name of the country is the Kemetic Empire, and its official short name is Kemet. The name Kemet is Kemetic for "black land", referring to the fertile soils of the Nile river. A term often used in English is Egypt, which derives from the Greek name for the country Aegyptos (Greek: Αἴγυπτος)
