The Spartans (people from the city-state of Sparta) were considered the most fierce
warriors of classical Greece. The were admired for their strength and warrior spirit- much like the Japanese Samurai, they were a warrior society. And it was not just the men, but the women and children were all hard as nails. The society encouraged stealing without being caught and endless physical training and preparation for war. In fact the Sparta citizens were not allowed to labour their own land, since it was a distraction from training and there were slaves (conquered by Spartans) to do the heavy labour. They were very serious about being tough and not letting anyone push them around!
