Monuments: 1 large Pyramid
The land offers few resources, so you will have to import heavily. Buying raw materials, refining them, then selling them will be a major source of income. You can grow barley, however, and profits from exporting beer will offset the cost of all your imports. You may have to build several Docks so that your sea trade flows smoothly.
You'll have to set up bridges and ferries to access your food resources. If you plan your farms carefully enough, you can utilize almost all of the flood plains.
There's some combat, but you shouldn't need more than a few Forts to meet the region's military demands. Any gifts of copper can be used for infantry, and the excess can be sold for a nice profit.
Requests will usually be for grain, barley, or limestone, so keep some on hand. If you keep meeting these demands, you can expect gifts of plain stone, which means you don't have to import quite as much to build your pyramid. If you're really good, you might not have to buy any plain stone at all! Make sure your have enough room in your Storage Yards to accept these gifts.
