Hellenic Republic or commonly Greece. It is a country in southeastern Europe, located in the southernmost region of the Balkan Peninsula.
Constituted not only by the mainland, but also by almost 6000 islands located in the Mediterranean Sea, the nation is considered the birthplace of western civilization because of its influence on such issues as democracy, western philosophy, the olympic sport, the literature, the study of history and politics.
After several years of wars, occupation and monarchies, in 1973, the present Hellenian State was formed after the coup that overthrew King Constantine II. Greece has been a member of the European Union since 1981 and has been part of the Eurozone since 2001, in addition to having NATO membership since 2005. Today, the nation has been experiencing moments of tension since 2010 when a debt crisis erupted in the country, which plunged it into a serious recession.
