The Hellenic Empire of Archipelagica is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Alcandros with an even hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, compulsory military service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.514 billion Hellenic Archipelagics are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Constantinople. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hellenic Archipelagic economy, worth 260 trillion Archipelagic drachmas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 171,928 Archipelagic drachmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The military perceives nations hit by natural disasters as "easy pickings", government spokespeople are working overtime trying to convince concerned citizens that Alcandros is not a crook, there's a politician called Male Infant Ripley, and police struggle to solve crimes due to the lack of fingerprint records. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Archipelagica's national animal is the Archipelagic Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.

Archipelagica is ranked 212,371st in the world and 53rd in Callista for Most Devout, with 5.33 Prayers Per Hour.
