The Allied States of Ano Glyfada is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 529 million Ano Glyfadans 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 large, moralistic government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinople. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ano Glyfadan economy, worth 49.1 trillion lire a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is 92,829 lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, school children asked "what is two times two?" are likely to form a symposium to discuss how different answers make them feel, life-saving resuscitation is denied based on decades-old teenage diaries that declare "I want to die before I get old", and the nation's reputation for treachery has left it sidelined on the international stage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ano Glyfada's national animal is the 2-headed eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Ano Glyfada is ranked 30,079th in the world and 4th in Voltarium for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 4,298.61 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
