Nikolaos The Great

Population20.801 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 barren, inhospitable landscape, soft-spoken computers, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 20.801 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 receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nikopolis. The average income tax rate is 4.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Hellenic economy, worth a remarkable 3,309 trillion Drachmas 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 slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. 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 159,095 Drachmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, and cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high. 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 4,210th in the world and 2nd in Greece for Largest Populations, with 20.8 billion Capita.
