The Geek Empire was built by the Geeco-Dorkugese and their supporters expelled from Snowprus in 1985. The penguins of the land believed that machines were better rulers than themselves. So thousands of computers were shipped to Geek Island, the home of the Geek Empire. These computers were put in a large, 6 story building, which is guarded by the military itself. The computers remained only in the building until 1989, when Stephen Occupations was tricked by Zeus to spread the computers across Geek Island. Stephen did so, and computers ended up controlling everything. Zeus was forming his own will, and he was becoming imperialistic. Zeus wanted to control EVERYTHING, so he built up the Geek military. In the years between 1990 and 2000, the Geek Empire had been waging war against their nearby island neighbors. The islands were conquered, and annexed into the Geek Empire.
In 2000 the an uprising started in Afens, when a group of citizens wanted the Geek Empire a state in the new USA. The rebels were arrested, and thrown in prison for six months. More uprisings started around the Geek Archipelago, and around that time computers were only dominant on Geek Island. So Zeus sent supercomputers to the rest of the Geek Empire, and finally ended the riots. Zeus gained complete control of the Geek Empire in 2002, and controlled everyone and everything.
On that same year Zeus broke down for five days, when he came back online he needed to do something. So Zeus created more super computers, and spread them out across the Geek Archipelago. Zeus broke down because of over work, so he had no other choice but to make more computers. Zeus is becoming smarter everyday, and is planning the machine take over of Antarctica. No creature knows what Zeus is doing, not ONE. Zeus is using the Geeks to take over Antarctica, and be dominant over the penguins.
Geeks are very healthy eaters. They enjoy eating vegetables, breads, salads, and healthy desserts. The Geeks like to eat Green salad, soup, sandwiches, focassia, Feta Cheese, and Fish Gyros. Olive oil, cinnamon, and salt are common flavoring in foods.
It is rumored that the Geeks are small, and weak due to the lost of meat in their diet.
The architecture is highly influenced by Snowprus. The buildings are built with white stone, and most of them have a red terracotta tiled roof. The Geeks' homes are usually small, 3 room houses. Each house has a computer system that runs the stove, oven, fridge, sink, refrigerator, bathtub, shower, television, and the lights.
Geeks like to listen to folk, and pop music. Folk music was the dominant music until 2000, when pop become popular. Folk music is still played at spas, and weddings. Pop music is very popular among chicks, but overtime the chicks become interested in folk music. In 2010 country music sneaked into the Geek Empire, and it is becoming more popular everyday.
The Geeks live peaceful lives, rivaling Dorkugal in technology. Unlike Dorkugal (which is completely ruled by living creatures), Geece is more ruled by machines than by real creatures, and this scares some penguins. Tourism is significantly lower here than Dorkugal (the computers are everywhere).
The nation also has a mass ring of organized "crime", known to outsiders as "the Modfia". Their exact intentions are unknown, but it has been confirmed that they smuggle teleporters (the kind that cause controversy) in the Grey Market, as well as Overclocked Computers and CP Trainers.
The Geek government is an empire ruled by an emperor. The emperor is the god Zeus, who is a benevolent dictator who is very conceited. Zeus controls the Geek Empire, he has complete control. Even the other super computers obey Zeus with no hesitation. However it appears that Zeus' creator, Stephen Occupations, is trying to control Zeus a little bit more. Stephen has come close to discovering Zeus' evil side, and wants to stop it if it's true.
The military is very large, and powerful. Zeus, and the other super computers, have built up the military as best as they can. Zeus wants the Geek military impossible to defeat, and he is doing a great job at it.
The military, not counting the Geek Empire's colonies, has an average of 135,000 soldiers in service. These soldiers are mostly terns and puffles, because most of the penguins are too geeky to join the military. Penguins aged 18 through 50 can join the military.
The soldiers wear large helmets, base off of the Penguin Empire's military helmets. These helmets have green fur sticking straight out of them, and are colored gold. The soldiers also wear green capes, and black uniforms.
The air force is the most funded, and powerful branch in the military. Most of the fighter jets are unpenguin computers, and only 10% of all the fighter jets need pilots. The first Geek unpenguin fighter jet was made in 1995, and was mass produced in 2001. In fact not many soldiers are trained to be pilots, so the need for unpenguin fighter jets is ever increasing.
The navy is the weakest branch in the military, but the strongest in numbers. There are over 12,500 submarines, 20,350 battleships, 18,670 aircraft carriers, and more in work. The navy likes to use cunning tactics, and moves on enemies. They use powerful torpedoes that could destroy Maps Island with only two of them. However, there are only four KNOWN of these "Geek Torpedoes".
- Snowzerland - Good These two nations are great allies, and trading partners. They help each other advance in technology, and conquer more land.
- United States of Antarctica - Horrible! The Geek Empire has been stealing a lot of land from the USA, and having wars. Somehow the Geek Empire keeps winning the wars, and it is angering Spike Hike a lot.
- Dorkugal - Fair The two nations have friendly contests to see who's technology is better, and the Geek Empire wins most of them. Zeus does not see Dorkugal as a good ally, or trading partner.
- Shops Island - Good Shops Island and its banks view the Geek Empire as a tax haven. All diplomatic relations between Shops and Dorkugal are also handled through the Shopper embassy in Pallas. Shops Island and the Geek Empire are also military allies.
- Poshia - Terrible! - The Geeks and Prepguins have always hated each other. The Geek Empire is an enemy of Poshia, and this position only got worse after the 2014 revolution.
Education has changed a lot over the Geek Empire's history. Before 1990, chicks decided if they wanted to go to school. On April 18th, 1990, that changed. The latest generation of chicks didn't go to school, and were really dumb. Most of them couldn't solve basic math or history questions.
The nerds explained in a conference with Explorer (who thought that machines would rise up and enslave them, he read too many science fiction books the day before):
— Since machines don't think, can't feel, or have emotions, they can be told to do anything, and will do it without guilt or sentience. They are also faster than us, do not argue with us, and are very shiny. We tell them what to do, and should they develop Artificial Intelligence, they all have an off switch. A really large, red off switch. This is good, since they may see themselves as superior... machines are naughty like that.
The Geek Empire has some special territories which have a certain level of autonomy from the seat of Zeus in Pallas, but are still part of the Geek Empire.
Lacedaemon is an island southwest of the capital Pallas which is semi-autonomous. It is a warrior state very much like and has close relations with Sparka. Lacedaemon has some of the Geek Empire's largest cities and is the backbone of the Geek military. It has a high puffle population in comparison to the rest of Geece. Its internal economy is mainly focused on selling weapons abroad.
The Geek Empire has a relatively weak economy with heavy deficits and high unemployment rates. Taxation is optional throughout the country, which means the government has to use international loans to finance infrastructure and national interests. The Geeks are an exporter of many useful minerals and cream sodas at the same time. Tourism is also a large industry for the Geeks, who experience tourists from across Antarctica. Some parts of the empire are rich in oil, which the government exploits.

- The entire country is a parody of the Greek Empire.
- All the supercomputers are parodies of the Greek gods and goddesses. How many parodies can you find?
