The Hellenic Ones

The Theocracy of The Hellenic Ones is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, compulsory military service, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic population of 245 million Hellenic Onesians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 74.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Hellenic Onesian economy, worth 7.00 trillion Drahmas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 28,575 Drahmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians that report exaggerated crowd sizes for their speeches are dismissed for being delusional, the seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, and the nation was recently voted "most likely to betray its allies". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Hellenic Ones's national animal is the Militaristic Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Hellenic Ones is ranked 35,240th in the world and 1,680th in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 72 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
