The Republic of Greek Hellada is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, devout population of 2.76 billion Greek Helladans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Athens. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Greek Helladan economy, worth 210 trillion Drachmas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 76,297 Drachmas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 326,503 per year while the poor average 11,429, a ratio of 28.6 to 1.

Euthanasia is legal, the government tries not to listen to the people unless it absolutely has to, nighttime sightings of raccoons sporting Circle-A patches and bandanna masks are on the rise, and biker gangs and fashionistas are converting to Violetism en masse. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greek Hellada's national animal is the Pheonix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Greek Hellada is ranked 255,152nd in the world and 36th in Regionless for Smartest Citizens, with 1.5 quips per hour.
