The Federation of Old Republic of Greece is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by RavenLord II with an iron fist, and notable for its ban on automobiles, compulsory military service, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.976 billion Old Republic of Greece citizens are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thessaloniki. The average income tax rate is 49.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming citizen of Old Republic of Greece economy, worth 313 trillion ISKS 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, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. 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 158,691 ISKS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

A common response to government PSAs is "well, DUH, obviously", creating cardboard imitations of missiles is a new top-secret military project, government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, and for the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Old Republic of Greece's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Transcendence over the uknown space.

Old Republic of Greece is ranked 52,079th in the world and 2,509th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 3,593.72 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
