Rome was established after the twin brothers Romulus and Remus founded this city in Italy, right next to the Mediterranean Sea. Rome then started out as a monarchy, but due to tyrannical rule, we became a republic.
Our government is a republic, which means we vote on representatives, and they make decisions. Rome is a Polytheistic state, meaning we have many Gods. We have 2 social classes, the Patricians (wealthy people), and Plebians (Commoners).
We have a senate, made of 600 people who advises our 2 consuls, our military leaders. To work in the government, you have to have served 10 years in the government.
Our Republic has the 12 tables, which ensure things like security, equality in the law, a right to a defense, and that we are innocent until proven guilty.
Our military is made of both patricians and plebeians. All males are required to serve in the army. We have massive Legions made of Infantry (4000-6000 foot soldiers) and cavalry (Small groups of people on horseback). These legions were then divided into 60 centuries.
In our conquests, we Romans have taken over Italy and the Mediterranean. Most cites we take over choose to ally with us. Currently we are fighting Carthage, which is in Africa.
