One of the items necessary for becoming a Nostrade bodyguard, was from a tomb in this country.

- Egypersia seems like a portmanteau of the Japanese words for Egypt (エジプト, Ejiputo) and Persia (ペルシャ, Perusha), and also a reference to these places.
- In the 1999 anime adaptation (subtitled version) its name is transliterated as "Egypsha".
