The number 1 government!

Sparta was a very strong and powerful city-state that ran on a form of government called Oligarchy which is a few people that share the power. Important decisions were made by the Council Of Elders which held two kings and 28 other men, to be elected to be in the Council Of Elders you had to be 60 years old and from a noble family.

Taking the lead on economy!

Sparta's economy was mainly based on farming and conquering other people. Spartans took a lot from their neighbors if they could not provide it by themselves. Sparta had free men called "Perioikoi" which usually served in the military if needed but could not take part in Spartans government.
