Official Badge of the Roman Senate

The Roman Empire was a government that existed in the real world and still exists in the Romanum universes.

GovernmentEdit

Main article: Government of the Roman Empire

The government of the Roman Empire is an elective monarchy. The Empire's head of state and government is an elected Emperor, who, upon election, is given an imperial name and holds the office until his death, whereupon a new Emperor would be elected based on a majority vote.

In the past, there was a massive amount of corruption within the Roman government. However, this corruption has long since been minimised.

Upon the death of Emperor Augustus XIV, who left no heir, the Senate ratified and adopted the First Amendment to the Constitution of Rome in 1855, which established an elective monarchy. The first Emperor to be elected was Adrianus I.

Imperial SenateEdit

Main article: Roman Imperial Senate

The Roman Senate is one of the oldest political institutions on the planet, being created in the year of Rome's birth in 753 BCE. It is one of the most enduring governmental bodies in Roman history, surviving the overthrow of the Kings of Rome in the waning days of the Roman Kingdom and the fall of the Republic in the 1st century BCE. Many other legislatures have taken after the Senate.

— Encyclopedia Terrae

The Senate is the legislative body of the Roman Empire. One of the oldest legislatures still surviving, the Senate consists of two houses: the Upper and Lower Senates, though it formerly only had one house. Each house has precisely 82 members, making 164 members currently presiding in the Senate.

Each member, as of the adoption of the Constitution of the Empire of Rome (1st amendment), is elected to the Senate to represent their Electorate. Electorates are not to be confused with Provinces. Though Senators represent areas within Provinces, they are not subordinate to the Proconsul of the said Province, answering only to the Consuls and the Emperor.

ProvincesEdit

Main article: Province Registry of the Roman Empire (Romanum 01)

There are twenty-three Provinces in the Roman Empire. Each is headed by a Proconsul, who is elected by the people of the Province. The Proconsul heads a provincial government which creates laws that are exclusive to that Province.

Foreign relationsEdit

AlliesEdit

Xanjin Technologist Imperium Edit

(See: Romano-Xanj Incident)

The Romans and Xanj are long-time allies, and the Xanj are the closest ally of Rome, fighting alongside them in the Greco-Roman wars, and supporting them in the Second Russo-Roman War.

Chinese Imperial Union Edit

(See: Second Russo-Roman War)

The Chinese Imperial Union is a major Trading partner of Rome, and the two share a common enemy in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

United Alcheringa Tribes Edit

Enemies and rivalsEdit

New Greek Empire Edit

(Main article: Greco-Roman Conflict)

The New Greek empire was formerly a territory of Rome, as well as one of the First Countries to successfully rebel against Rome. As such, the civil war, several following wars regarding territory disputes, and Greece being a major supporter of The USSR, Nunavummiuts, and India, led to tense relations and frequent wars with Greece.


Union of Soviet Socialist RepublicsEdit

(See: Second Russo-Roman War)

Rome and the USSR are long-time foes, and while currently at peace, the USSR Is an ally of Greece, India, and the Nunavummiuts, leading some to speculate a third Russo-Roman war is becoming more and more likely.


IndiaEdit

India was a former trading partner of Rome, until 1500 AD, when Rome annexed a large portion of the Northern half of India. India is also now one of the main supporters of Greece and the Nunavummiuts, and ended up becoming a belligerent in the most recent Greco-Xanj war, on the side of the Greeks.


Confederation of the NunavummiutsEdit

Much like New Greece the Confederation of the Nunavummiuts was previously a Roman-controlled area, and much like New Greece, the Nunavummiuts rebelled and defeated the Pro-Roman troops, gaining independence. In 2007, The Nunavummiuts further strained their relations with Rome by joining the Greeks and Indians in fighting Rome in the nexus Crisis.

MilitaryEdit

Main article: Roman Imperial Armed Forces

The Roman Armed Forces is a large military force which helps defend and annex territories into the Empire. It has several divisions:

ArmyEdit

The Army is the largest and oldest of the military divisions.

NavyEdit

RIN flag

Naval jack of the Imperial Navy

The Navy is the second largest of the military divisions. The first instances of Rome needing a navy was when it was fighting against the Carthaginian Empire, which was at the time more powerful than Rome, and was the Mediterranean's superpower, preventing the Romans from achieving their goal of a Mediterranean hegemony.

IIIDEdit

The IIID (Imperial Internal Intelligence Division) is the internal and domestic secret service and law enforcement division of the Roman Empire.

ISISEdit

The ISIS (Imperial Secret Intelligence Service) is the international espionage division of the Empire.

ISSEdit

The ISS (Imperial Sentinel Squad) is a small, ten-strong group of Sentinels imported from Xanjon. It is a completely mechanised division of the armed forces and is deployed in operations where human armed force would be dangerous or inappropriate.

PopulationEdit

The Roman Empire is home to over 1 billion people, most of whom are concentrated in the Italia, Upper Gallia and Germania provinces. Approximately 42% of the population are Romans, while 25% are Celts. 10% are Greeks, and 8% are Africans. 5% are Aboriginal Australians, and 4% are Indian. 3% are Native American, 2% are Xanj, and the remaining 1% are of other minority cultural backgrounds.

CultureEdit

Public holidaysEdit

Empire DayEdit

Though it is uncertain exactly when the Roman Empire was founded, it is traditionally accepted in Romanum 01 that the Empire was proclaimed by Augustus I on the 1st July 27 BCE. As such, July 1 is a public holiday in the Empire, accompanied by massive celebrations, rallies and displays of Rome's military power in marches and gun salutes. Many festival grounds in the Empire are also filled on this day. It is customary for the Emperor to give a speech to the masses in Rome. This speech is usually broadcasted across the Empire via television.
