Overview

Athena is a large country comprising a large area in the south east of the main continent of Rodinia, plus large numbers of islands off the coast of the mainland. The islands of Ethion and Aquadis are the two largest of the member isles.

The Athenians are probably the greatest sea faring nation in the entirety of Rodinia. They are probably the cultural leaders of the world, having many philosophers, architects, sculptors and writers among their population. Their art is second to none and is the most sort after by knowledgable collectors across the world.

Athena is a land which, unusually in Rodinia, is a democracy, with the government elected by the people. The main government is known as the Council, and votes are taken in a huge gathering known as the Assembly.

The navy and army are paid well and it is considered an honour to fight for the country, meaning the country is well defended.

The Athenians are considered allies by Rodnina, which allows the Athenians to flourish without threat from the superpower. To this end there are two major trade routes between Rodinia and Athena, which pass through Nagastan. These trade routes are constantly under threat from the Nagastanis.

Places of Interest

Olympia

Olympia is the capital city of Athena and possibly the most culturally advanced place on the planet. The base for many of the world's greatest artists, sculptors, poets and musicians, this city is also home to some of the most intelligent and educated scientists. If there was a power base for cultural refinement in Rodinia, this would be it.

Aquadis

Aquadis is the larger of the two southern isles off the mainland of Athena. Though technically being part of the overall democracy, the further away from the capital one gets, the less civilized the country becomes - and Aquadis is far enough away that at its southern fringes it becomes pretty lawless. The northern parts of this island are close to the civilized Ethion Isle, and a few more adventurous nobles have holiday villas here on the north shore. In fact it is something of a claim in the upper classes to have the most southerly retreat.

Ethion Isle

Ethion Isle is the nearest of the two southern islands off the mainland of Athena. Being the closest to the mainland it is also the most civilized. It is a very pleasant island with lovely vistas over the local seas and a very pleasant climate. Summers here are warm, if a bit humid, and the winters are quite mild. Many of the nobility of Athena have second houses on this island where they come for rest and relaxation.
