Look how much water we have. There are over 200,000 gallons
Wow! There are public baths
Free Food for the People
Look at all the food!
Entertainment for the People
The ciricus is here again. We get this 66 days a year! There is free entertainment every day for the unemployed. Romans are flooding the coloseum and at Circus Maximus. Living in Rome gives us everything we need.
What a show!
No work getting done in the city
There are 6 aqueducts that bring fresh water from the mountains to the fountains. This is a great benefit!
We still get free food and entertainment even on holidays. No one has to work.
The farmers have produced so much food. No one will go hungry. All of this food is another benefit of living in Rome.
Farmers in provinces are taxed
Why are we getting taxed?
We don't have any surplus. We can't make money.
Farmers are not working hard
Let's stop working hard. It doesn't pay to work hard and get taxed.
We have to give away our surplus.
It is another holiday. No one is working. We are having so much fun, we don't need to worry. The farmers are working so we get free food.
All of the farmers are expected to work to provide all the free food but there isn't enough farmland. Four out of 5 of us are farmers and we are getting taxed.
The farmers arent actually very good at what they do. With so many farmers they still don't produce a surplus. They aren't actually working that hard at farmering Why should they work hard when they are taxed and have to give their surplus to the Emperors. We are still poor. I don't want to pay more taxes. Those in the city are getting free food and entertainment.
