Egypt was a country on the planet Earth.
In an alternate timeline caused by the Omega Comet; the Blue Lion (a mecha from an alternate universe) crash landed in the country in 2009, while the other pieces of the Voltron Universe crashed into Macross Island. Its pilot, Princess Allura, was found by the locals suffering extreme amnesia. In 2014, Keith Kogane found the Mecha and attempted to convince her to come back with him -- but as she did not remember him, she did not trust him. Upon remembering who Keith was and what he meant to her, she joined him and the other parts of the mecha to re-intercept with the Comet. Doing this sent them back to where they had been when they had first crossed with it, completely resting the timelines in both universes. (Robotech/Voltron: 1, 4, 5)
