The Roman Empire, not to be confused with Rome, is the largest city on the island of Deutschland. It, however, resides within the Papal State to the north of Shikkopleks, which is XVII million miles west of the Sol. The most important figure in Roman sithology is Mao Zedong, who is commonly referred to as "Mother Russia."

Stuff in Latin[edit]

Parva agricolam terra aqua sunt errarum mori. In Roma angusta Octavianus pulchra pater. Germania es est estis sum sunt deus. Terra Romanum, Humanum. Canem lector senator mordet.

Stuff not in Latin[edit]

Everything's in Latin, idiot.

Founding legends[edit]

Traditional stories handed down by the ancient Romans themselves explain the earliest history of their city in terms of legend and myth. The most familiar of these myths, and perhaps the most famous of all Roman myths, is the story of Romulus and Remus, the twins who were suckled by a she-wolf. They decided to build a city, but after an argument, Romulus killed his brother. According to the Roman annalists, this happened on 21 April 753 BC. This legend had to be reconciled with a dual tradition, set earlier in time, that had the Trojan refugee Aeneas escape to Italy and found the line of Romans through his son Iulus, the namesake of the Julio-Claudian dynasty. This was accomplished by the Roman poet Virgil in the first century BC.
