SCP-1173 The Islamic Republic of Eastern Samothrace object class – euclid Item #: SCP-1173 Object Class: Euclid Special Containment Procedures: Knowledge
of the “existence” of the IDAS is to be expunged from all databases and sources at earliest
convenience. This removal is to include online and print sources; containment will be considered
complete when information regarding SCP-1173 is present in Foundation databases only. Active
attempts to contain SCP-1173 are suspended at this time; please consult Addendum SCP-1173-1
for details. Three (3) D-class personnel infected with SCP-1173 are to be kept at Site 38 for
limited testing purposes; any unauthorized use of the operative phrase for SCP-1173 transmission
outside of testing protocols is to result in termination and replacement. While the current need to contain SCP-1173
is paramount, under no circumstances are Foundation personnel to directly engage in hostile action
against individuals attempting to spread SCP-1173. Efforts to contain SCP-1173 should focus on
discovering the nature of SCP-1173 and researching methods of eliminating SCP-1173, regardless
of whatever actions may be required to accomplish this. However, all Foundation units are to
refrain from attacking one another for any reason, including as a part of an attempt
to contain SCP-1173. Document 1173-A is to be deleted at earliest
opportunity and all affected personnel treated. As per Protocol 1173-Omicron: Until such a
time as the nature of SCP-1173 can be more definitively determined and anti-memetic measures
can be carried out, direct conflict between affected personnel and standard Foundation
personnel is to be avoided. Discussion of SCP-1173 in an unofficial capacity is strictly
forbidden to avoid interpersonal conflict among Foundation personnel. Description: SCP-1173 is a memetic phenomenon
centered around a delusional belief in a political entity, known as the “Islamic Union of Eastern
Samothrace,” “Ισλαμική Δημοκρατία της Ανατολικής Σαμοθράκης”
(in the original Greek), or “IDAS.” Affected individuals will possess varying degrees of
understanding or awareness of the history or culture of the IDAS, but interviews with
individuals under the influence of SCP-1173 have isolated several key characteristics
that the political entity is commonly described as possessing. Geographically, the IDAS appears
to be a primarily Greek-speaking nation comprising a small mainland enclave on the Anatolian
peninsula and a series of islands in the northeastern Aegean Sea. As the name would indicate, within
the context of the delusion, a significant portion of the population practices Sunni
Islam, with a limited number of Shi’a practitioners and a small group of Syriac Orthodox Christians,
though the latter group has largely left the country due to religious conflict. Individuals can become infected with SCP-1173
only by hearing an operant sentence spoken aloud in their presence by an infected individual;
through research, the operant sentence has been determined to be “You hear about that
thing down in Samothrace?” Individuals that have heard this sentence frequently express
minor interest in the ensuing conversation, which invariably describes some sort of internecine
military conflict, massacre, famine, drought, ethnic cleansing, or other atrocity occurring
within the country. Uninfected individuals have what Foundation
researchers have termed a “passive resistance” to information regarding the IDAS; such individuals
will consistently and without fail ignore or fail to observe any data or information
regarding the nation unless directly ordered to take in information on the subject. After
becoming infected with SCP-1173, individuals will begin noticing references and details
to the “current” status of the IDAS in news and other print sources; individuals will
begin noticing references to older versions of the nation (often referred to as “Mahometan
Saemothras”) in works of classic literature dating back to the seventeenth century, and
will occasionally make casual references to Samothrace in the same vein as “Timbuktu”
or “Bangkok,” meaning an obscure backwater of little importance. The delusion of the existence of the IDAS
is not directly harmful to most individuals. However, research into schizophrenia carried
out by the Foundation for unrelated reasons generated a series of connections between
SCP-1173 infection and certain previously unexplained psychological abnormalities. Specifically,
a significant number (upwards of 800) of homeless or institutionalized individuals diagnosed
with schizophrenia have been found to be infected with SCP-1173. Moreover, when interviewed
as a part of psychological therapy, many of them described themselves as veterans of an
American counterinsurgency force in the IDAS; individuals affected in this way frequently
describe close encounters with children and pregnant mothers as suicide bombers, futile
attacks by poorly-armed partisans ending in massacres, and war crimes committed by the
occupying U.S. troops. Particularly lucid instances of these individuals make vague
references to strained geopolitical relations with Russia, which feels threatened by the
American incursion, and China, which is described as being engaged in large-scale combat with
a heavily-armed Uyghur revolutionary army inspired by the Samothracian resistance. Addendum 1173-1: After the discovery of SCP-1173,
a survey of Foundation personnel revealed extensive SCP-1173 infection at all levels
of the chain of command. Attempts to establish and execute containment procedures were complicated
due to efforts by other Foundation units to deliberately infect more individuals with
SCP-1173. These conflicts developed into sporadic armed fights between Foundation units before
Protocol 1173-Omicron was put into place, banning all unofficial communication between
personnel regarding 1173 and agreeing to maintain the contemporary equilibrium between infected
and uninfected individuals (estimated as groups of approximately equal size). Addendum 1173-2: If you’re reading this, the computer has verified
you to be uninfected through subtle tests of certain subconscious reactions you have
had to keywords placed throughout this document. Congratulations, Researcher, you’ve been drafted.
God help you. The Omicron protocol was never intended to
be permanent. Many of us tried to help our infected comrades, help to cure them, help
them see the truth. Those of us that remained uninfected knew the idea of allowing Foundation
personnel to remain under the influence of a dangerous memetic virus, completely unchecked,
was madness. But a civil war between Foundation units was even more unthinkable, so we compromised. Temporarily. You are now part of a resistance movement,
whether you like it or not; history has placed the responsibility on your shoulders. You
cannot be told who is on your side and who isn’t, and you will never know in most cases.
You will not be contacted at any other time regarding this subject, and you will never
be able to prove that you received this message in the first place. The infected are all around us, every day;
friends, loved ones, parents, even children. There is a way to counteract the infection,
but it has its risks. You must procure a compound from Foundation Pharmacology known as “Class
O Amnestic”. If you put in a request for it and sympathetic personnel receive the order,
they should deliver a box with several hyposprays to you. Whenever possible, you are to isolate
personnel, engage them in conversation, determine their level of awareness regarding the Islamic
Republic of Eastern Samothrace (how you accomplish this is up to you), determine their infection
status, and deliver the antidote if necessary. The infected still believe we are keeping
to the truce; with a concerted effort, we can eliminate the infection from the Foundation.
This must be done; we cannot allow the last line in humanity’s defense against the anomalous
suffer at the hands of an anomaly. This message approved by O5-2, O5-3, O5-6,
O5-8, O5-10, and O5-13. This message not to be kept in official records. This message not to be copied or replicated. Item #: SCP-1173 Object Class: Euclid Special Containment Procedures: Knowledge
of the existence of the IDAS is to be promulgated into as many databases and reputable sources
at earliest convenience. This spread of information is to include online and print sources; containment
of SCP-1173 will be considered complete when information regarding the IDAS is present
in as many scholarly databases, media outlets, and literature as is possible. Active attempts
to contain SCP-1173 are suspended at this time; please consult Addendum SCP-1173-A for
details. Three (3) D-class personnel infected with SCP-1173 are to be kept at Site 26 for
limited testing purposes; any unauthorized use of the operative phrase for SCP-1173 treatment
outside of testing protocols is to result in termination and replacement. While the current need to contain SCP-1173
is still considered a vital one, under no circumstances are Foundation personnel to
directly engage in hostile action against individuals attempting to spread SCP-1173.
Efforts to contain SCP-1173 should focus on discovering the nature of SCP-1173 and researching
methods of eliminating SCP-1173, regardless of whatever actions may be required to accomplish

can be carried out, direct conflict between affected personnel and standard Foundation
personnel is to be avoided. Discussion of SCP-1173 in an unofficial capacity is strictly
forbidden to avoid interpersonal conflict among Foundation personnel. Description: SCP-1173 is a memetic phenomenon
associated with the political body known as the Islamic Republic of Eastern Samothrace
(Ισλαμική Δημοκρατία της Ανατολικής Σαμοθράκης,
or IDAS), currently the recognized government of the area traditionally known as Eastern
Samothrace and Associated Island Territories. The Greek-speaking nation, centered on a small
mainland enclave on the Anatolian peninsula and a series of islands in the northeastern
Aegean Sea, is a resource-poor region previously known for its valuable port cities. The majority
population practices Sunni Islam, with a limited number of Shi’a practitioners and a small
group of Syriac Orthodox Christians, though the latter group has largely left the country
due to religious conflict in the area. The nation is largely known for the semi-constant
warfare taking place within its borders, typically centered around religious, ethnic, or political
differences. SCP-1173 has the effect of completely erasing
all awareness of the existence of the IDAS from the memory or perception of infected
individuals. Infected individuals will not recall the existence of Eastern Samothrace
as a region, the IDAS as a government, or of the persistent conflict and privation of
the country’s populace as newsworthy pieces of information. The persistent spread of SCP-1173
throughout the human population has helped to minimize awareness of the country’s difficulties
and therefore reduce the amount of assistance its people have received, increasing suffering
throughout the region. The initial vector for infection is unknown;
however, SCP-1173 can be countered through use of an operant sentence spoken aloud in
the presence of infected individuals by an uninfected individual. Through research, the
operant sentence has been determined to be “You hear about that thing down in Samothrace?”
Individuals that have heard this sentence frequently express minor interest in the ensuing
conversation, which invariably leads to a greater degree of interest in Samothracian
affairs and appears to permit individuals to retain awareness and knowledge of the IDAS.
This will rapidly lead to the restoration of an individual’s memory of the country’s
present situation and classical contributions to Western culture. An individual able to
retain such memories is considered “cured” of SCP-1173. While most individuals infected with SCP-1173
are able to live otherwise normal lives, recent research has suggested a secondary effect
from SCP-1173 infection. This effect has been observed specifically with individuals coming
into close proximity with Syriac Christian refugees from Samothrace that have settled
in the United States (at least 20,000 Syriac families have done so over the last fifteen
years). In at least twenty-one separate instances, individuals with no commonalities other than
SCP-1173 infection status have become extremely angry to the point of psychosis when in the
presence of Samothracian refugees, leading to acts of violence. Many of these acts were
unaccompanied by any explanation for their behavior, and attackers frequently expressed
remorse and confusion at their own actions afterward. However, in eight documented instances,
attackers were noted to shout “you can’t be real” repeatedly and at great volume during
the assault. Addendum 1173-A: After the discovery of SCP-1173,
a survey of Foundation personnel revealed extensive SCP-1173 infection at all levels
of the chain of command. Attempts to establish and execute containment procedures were complicated
due to efforts by other Foundation units to deliberately infect more individuals with

God help you. A civil war between Foundation units was unthinkable,
so we compromised. Infected and uninfected Foundation personnel agreed to leave one another
alone. We weren’t sure what caused SCP-1173, but observable trends showed the number of
infected was declining as a result of our containment methods; a simple sentence, spread
by civilians, would contain SCP-1173 for us. We felt time was on our side. But they cheated. The infected are all around us, every day;
friends, loved ones, parents, even children. They found a way to spread the infection to
more Foundation personnel through a compound known as “Class O Amnestic”. They put in a
request for it at Foundation Pharmacology, and there are frequently infected personnel
there to receive the order. We sabotage the orders as often as possible, but they’re still
infecting the rest of us. You are now part of a resistance movement,
whether you like it or not; history has placed the responsibility on your shoulders. You
cannot be told who is on your side and who isn’t, and you will never know in most cases.
You will not be contacted at any other time regarding this subject, and you will never

status, and recite the operative sentence as described in this document. The infected
don’t know that we’ve found out about them; with a concerted effort, we can eliminate
the infection from the Foundation. This must be done; we cannot allow the last line in

on 1:1 basis. Footnote 2 – excerpt from interview 6355:
“We walk through this town and see an area alien to us, an area we find Unreal, an area
that is Nowhere, just as one side of a strip of ribbon does not think the other side is
real. You humans have found an incantation that shows you part of the other side of the
ribbon, but you cannot see both sides at once. We see both sides in the places where the
ribbon frays, such as here. Your potions alone keep this sight from driving us mad.” footnote 3 – excerpt from interview 6370:
“Force us not to tread our feet across this ribbon overmuch; while looking across both
sides of this world instills madness into your minds, pulling still at the threads that
bind all we know together will yet instill madness into the world.”

  1. I think This scp in Iran because
    The Islamic Republic is Iran
    But indeed they are not Islamic they are a
    The Satanic Republic

  2. This originally was going to be the last part of the story as a patreon request. If I had read the last bit by itself it would of been very confusing to everyone who isnt familiar with this SCP, so I went ahead and read all the of parts together for clarity! Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving and the next video is on friday night!

  3. Did you all hear about what happened when that one cleric guy was preaching in the streets over there? Hell, even Iraq looks when you're coming from that shithole.

  4. The Islamic Republic of Eastern Samothrace's Sultan of Capricious Purity 1173 Star General does not approve of this message

  5. Now that I think about it, isn't this SCP one of the countries that was effected by SCP-3812, along with Alagadda (SCP-2264-B)?

  6. I thought I understood until all that stuff at the end. Isn't it that each side thinks that this place does or doesn't exist and in the process infecting each other with the SCP?

  7. So 2 dual realities. There a tear and people are going to the other accidentally which will drive you mad at a point. And the idea to stop it was to set 2 groups up to uninfect/reinfect each other with the idea this place is or isn't there.

  8. The title of your videos have started to appear in swedish for me, no other channels, just yours.

    I love your channel and content but its really weird :')
