JOIN ATHENS!

THE BEST POLIS!

HAVE A VOICE IN YOUR GOVERNMENT!

We Athenians have a unique government system that allows almost anyone to vote and make laws! We have a group called the Assembly that makes our laws, and you just have to be an 18 or older male to join! If you don't want to do that we also have the Council of 500. They recommend laws to the Assembly and vote on them! And you only have to be a citizen and win a lottery to join! So as you can see, we believe that power belongs with the people!

IMPORTANT VALUES!

Here in Athens, we believe that worshiping the gods, especially Athena, is very important. After all, we have Athena to thank for saving our polis! We also believe good education is key, as well as art. Without education our people would perish! But it's not just education, we think a balance of athletics is excellent as well, and that's why we invented the Olympics to honor Zeus!

HOW WE DO IT!

To maintain our amazing economy, we depend on tourists and trade! We have thousands of people that love to visit our great polis, and they love to spend money on great attractions! They also bring goods and more from their polis or land that they can trade for our famous olive oil, honey, and exquisite art!

JOIN ATHENS AND HELP US PROSPER!

As you can see, as an Athenian you will be able to have a say in what our government does for out city! You will be taught a balance of literature, arts, and athletics, which will help you be the best you can be. And lastly, you will understand how great cities like ours stay alive and prosper, and you can help! I hope you'll consider joining, and I can guarantee you won't regret it!
