The Hellenic Republic (or Greece) is a European country located on Earth.

The city of Sparta is located there. The ORION Program and its successors (SPARTAN-II and III programs) were named after and based of off the city's war-like inhabitants. Greece is related with many things such as characters, places or events in Halo universe. Areas such as Adrianople, Istanbul (Constantinople), Cyprus, & Macedonia are considered to be Greek, though whether they are held by Greece in Halo is completely unknown.

The only thing that confirms the existence of Greece during the Human-Covenant war is the UNSC Orbital Defense Platform Athens Station which is over its capital, Athens. Anything else about it is currently unknown.
