The City-State of Athens

Population7.697 billion

LeaderGeorgios Megalos


The Military state of The City-State of Athens is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Georgios Megalos with an even hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, humorless population of 7.697 billion Athenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Athens. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Athenuanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,060 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 137,785 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

All work and no play makes parties very dull, celebrities sit helplessly as they are labeled "pompous womples" by Georgios Megalos, the nation's politicians are acknowledged as the most polite in the region to the dismay of comedians everywhere, and kids looking for shark teeth have become ancient history. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The City-State of Athens's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Atheism.

The City-State of Athens is ranked 65,988th in the world and 2,072nd in Balder for Most Average, scoring 42.82 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
