The Hellenic Republic

The Hellenic Republic(Greece) is located at the southern end of the Balkans. The nation's strategic location is very important, the nation connects Bosporus Strait to the east and the Suez Canal of Egypt to the south. Greece can not only affect the Aegean Sea, but also affect North Africa.

Greece also has a rich history, it's not only the place where western civilization began, but also a place where western literature begins.

Greece contains a lot of historic sites and beautiful landmarks such as the Acropolis, Meteora, Parthenon, Shipwreck bay, Temple of Zeus and Delos.


Greece is a wealthy country and its economy is very free. The country once suffered from a recession but now the problem is fixed. One of the most important sectors in the Greek economy is tourism. It's one of the largest industries in Greece, and again, it suffered an economic setback in 2020 and 2021 because of the COVID19 outbreak.

Now, Greece's largest economic problems are high unemployment rate, inefficient public sector bureaucracy and tax evasion.


Tourism is one of the most important and largest industries in Greece. It accounts for 18 percent of Greece's GDP and employs more than 900000 people. There are many famous sites in Greece, such as the Acropolis and Stefanos Crater.


Even though agriculture is not a thriving sector in its economy, Greece is a major EU producer of cotton and tobacco. Greece's olive is also one of their most famous exports. Grapes, melons, tomatoes, peaches, and oranges are very popular too.

Greek government debt crisis

Greece once suffered from a recession in late 2009 because the government's policies included too much spending. The event even caused a small-scale humanitarian crisis. This event even caused Greece to become a member of the PIGS. Now the problem is fixed and the economy is good again.

Freedom House Score

Greece got 87 out of 100 on the freedom house score, which means it's a free country. It didn't get 100 percent because the government has been accused of giving money to friendly private media.

Journalist's is also mistreated in Greece. Crime reporter Giorgos Karaivaz was assassinated in April 2021. He was killed by a gun. In April, the police arrested the three suspects who allegedly planned to assassinate the reporter, but no charges were officially made against the three suspects. The Greek government needs to fix this problem to make their country peaceful and free.

History and Culture

Greece has a very rich history and there's a lot of interesting myths about it. Here, I've listed the best parts about Greek history and Myths.


The earliest Greek myths date back more than 2700 years. The first ones were written by a famous poet named Hesiod, a famous guy born in 750 BC.

The Iliad and the Odyssey

The Iliad and the Odyssey is one of the most famous epic poems of ancient Greece.

The Odyssey is about Odysseus's adventures after the Trojan war. These poems are still popular now and there are a lot of movies about them.


Theseus exists in the real world, but the exploits of killing the minotaur are fake, getting caught by Hades and attempting to capture Hades's wife is just a myth.

The Greco Persian War

Battle of the Marathon

In 490B.C. Darius the First invaded Greece. The persian army landed on the Marathon Plain. The Persians were attacked by the Athenians on the left and right. In the end, the Persian army was unable to do any attacks on the Greeks, so they withdrew their army and retreated back to Asia.

The coalition planned to stop the Persians in a valley, but the Persian army was about to detour to avoid the valley, the Greek coalition forces retreated, which caused the nearby city states to surrender. In order to stop the other city states from defecting, the coalition decided to establish a stronghold at Thermal Pass.

The Persians attacked Thermal pass, 300 Spartan warriors, including the Spartan king, Leonidas blocked 20000 people, but because there were too many Persians, The 300 warriors and Leonidas were wiped by the tremendous amount of enemies. The battle not only helped Greece defeat Persia in the battles in the future, but also showed the bravery of the Spartans.
