Ithaca is a medium sized, mostly developed, and young nation at 18 days old with citizens primarily of Greek ethnicity whose religion is Taoism. Its technology is first rate and its citizens marvel at the astonishing advancements within their nation. Its citizens pay extremely high taxes and many despise their government as a result. The citizens of Ithaca work diligently to produce Uranium and Coal as tradable resources for their nation. It is an aggressive country that some say has an itch for war. It believes nuclear weapons are necessary for the security of its people. The military of Ithaca has been positioned at all border crossings and is arresting all drug traffickers. Ithaca allows its citizens to protest their government but uses a strong police force to monitor things and arrest lawbreakers. Its borders are closed to all forms of immigration. Ithaca believes in the freedom of speech and feels that it is every citizen's right to speak freely about their government. The government gives foreign aid when it can, but looks to take care of its own people first. Ithaca will not make deals with another country that has a history of inhuman treatment of its citizens.
As you set out for Ithaca
hope your road is a long one,
full of adventure, full of discovery.
angry Poseidon, dont be afraid of them:
you ll never find things like that on your way
as long as you keep your thoughts raised high,
as long as a rare excitement
stirs your spirit and your body.
wild Poseidon, you wont encounter them
unless you bring them along inside your soul,
unless your soul sets them up in front of you.
