The God of War series is based on the mythology of ancient Greece, and also some parts of ancient Greek history.

It's the home country of Kratos, the main protagonist of the games. Consisting of many city-states during the time period, Kratos' city is Sparta. The opposing city-state of Athens lies northeast of Sparta, and is the place where the fates of Ares and Kratos are decided.

Marathon, Rhodes, Crete, and Attica also appear in the series. This sets the events of God of War II and the Second Titanomachy. The highest mountain in all of Greece is Mount Olympus, or Olympus for short, and is the home of the Gods.

Below the surface lies the Underworld and Tartarus, where the Titan Atlas holds the upper land with its hands after the destruction of the Pillar of the World.
