The Republic of Greek Mountains and Islands is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its parental licensing program, frequent executions, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.89 billion Greeks are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Athens. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Greek economy, worth 208 trillion Drachmas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 110,509 Drachmas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 362,999 per year while the poor average 25,229, a ratio of 14.4 to 1.

Thousands of picky mothers-in-law have been recruited to serve as even pickier cookery instructors, wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", nuclear warheads are frequently launched into space as a warning to invading meteoroids, and it takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greek Mountains and Islands's national animal is the Pheonix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Greek Mountains and Islands is ranked 29,252nd in the world and 15th in Regionless for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 190.93 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
