We also worship many gods

Some of the gods and godesses
Athens has a Council of 500
The Council of 500 is a group of 500 people, rich or poor, who have won a lottery. They propose laws.
10 generals command the army and navy of Athens.
Any free male over 18 is welcome to join the Assembly. The Assembly also makes laws.
Sparta does some things very differently. For example, in Sparta, in order to join their Assembly, you have to be 30 or older which isn't really fair. also, to join their Council of Elders, you have to be 60 years old. They think that we are wrong to let 18 year olds make decisions, but it gives them a chance to make better decisions and help them later in life.
