Nikolaos The Great

Population21.824 billion

LeaderTechnocrat Nikolaos Konstantonopoulos


The City-States of Nikopolis of Nikolaos The Great is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Technocrat Nikolaos Konstantonopoulos with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 21.824 billion Hellenes hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nikopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Hellenic economy, worth a remarkable 3,540 trillion Drachmas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 162,216 Drachmas, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble, and Hellenes incessantly needle their doctors for relief. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Nikolaos The Great's national animal is the owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Hellenism.

Nikolaos The Great is ranked 205,326th in the world and 27th in Greece for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -25.88 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
