Of course, after a tiny amount of research, I discover that democracy existed for hundreds of years before the Athenians "invented" it.

When the first states emerged in Mesopotamia, they were actually relatively democratic in nature, where councils of both elders and young men (not women, who were the first victims of state oppression) were consulted on matters of importance to the state. It was over time that more and more power was hoarded away by central figures in the state hierarchy, ultimately culminating in the foundation of the first empire by the Akkadians.

There was also evidence of democracy within the stateless and egalitarian Indus Valley Civilization, as well as the early Indian republics that succeeded it. Indeed, when Alexander of Macedon arrived in the subcontinent, he remarked about how the local republics functioned similarly to the long-dead Athenian democracy.
