The Hellenic Republic of Archipelagica is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Alcandros with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 781 million Hellenic Archipelagics enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Constantinople. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 63.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Hellenic Archipelagic economy, worth 107 trillion Archipelagic drachmas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 137,587 Archipelagic drachmas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 437,620 per year while the poor average 32,932, a ratio of 13.3 to 1.

Unemployed political consultants and advertisers spend every election night weeping for the good old days, citizens are bombarded with advertising from their compulsory miniature radios, corporations claim the third ounce of any metal traded in a wicker-cone on the Sunday of a full moon as a charitable expense, and a cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Archipelagica's national animal is the Archipelagic Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Archipelagica is ranked 162,397th in the world and 39th in Bluecrown Keep for Nudest, with 86 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
