If civilization were to collapse in a few days, where would the Imperators meet up - so we could re-conquer everything? Cool

And then what would we do precisely?

Also, there is a poll down there for the type of government you would like to establish in the wake of this calamity. With each type there is a concise description.

Yes, well... it is a system I rather like myself. And apparently, an Imperator wants a Theocracy!

Not that there's anything wrong with that cheers .

LOL! I love this poll Very Happy

Realistically speaking, if the Imperators were to found a nation, it would most definitely be an Absolute Monarchy. Boru would be the King, and Clan Sampson would be his family, theyd be the ruling elite, and have the most important jobs in the government. Other Imperators would fill other roles in the government as well as military and possibly corporate positions. The people would be servants of the King, not the other way around.

Nothing wrong with it m8, an absolute monarchy certainly has its benefits Very Happy

Rest of Communism description that was cut off due to text restrictions: Most of the nation's businesses and property are owned by the government, to help keep that ideology - sometimes at any cost - in place.

It was exceedingly popular during the end of enlightenment and the fall of Aboslute Monarchies in the late 19th century and the end of World War I.

The main problem with Absolute Monarchies/Emperorships is that without strong leadership, the ruling aristocracy would collaspe under intense pressure from the common people or direct attack. Obviously, Boru wouldn't have any trouble with this. However, what happens after he is gone - and so are we? Are we setting up our new nation for imminent disaster? Of course, any string of events could occur to swing the fate of our nation either way, but history tells me an oh-so repetitive story.

Yes, Chivalry and the issuing of Titles are more of the intricate systems of Feudalism.

If i were the leader, id set up 'Democratic Socialism', Socialist system but with an emphasis on letting the people have a say in things, without democracy socialism leads to communism, no good No

You tread a dangerous edge with that kind of government. Excluding you, someone with a insatible urge for power and a commanding stature could become the leader of the nation, and slowly relinquish all democratic rights, thus creating a totalitarian state.

Of course, this doesn't usually happen, but nevertheless, it is something to be aware of.
