The population of Nilespace is not only human but a large part of the population consists of other races: Dwarves, Halflings, shapeshifting Sphinxes and Werecats, Halfgiants, Orcs and small groups of Elves. All races, even Orcs, live peacefull together.
Two main culture groups live in Nilespace: Egyptians in one half of the sphere, Nubians in the other half. But there are a lot of immigrants from other spheres such as Arabspace and Icespace.
Recently a war raged in the sphere. The Elven Imperial Fleet tried to gain influence in the sphere. At first both Nubians and Egyptians fighted the Elves for their independence but after some disastrous events in Nubia, the new Nubian leaders betrayed the Egyptians and together with the Elves they conquered Egyptia. At the moment there is a strong resistance in Egyptia against both Elves as Nubians.
