I have a thought experiment for you. What would it take to have the Roman Empire (or Republic) make a comeback? What bare minimums would recreate a recognizable Roman Empire? Here are a few I brainstormed: 1. Must contain city of Rome 2. Latin official language of government 3. Roman Senate active 4. Army using Roman terms. Legion = division, Cohort = battalion, century = company. Dux = 3-star general, etc Further questions: 1. Would there be an official religion? I don’t think there would have to be. Maybe nominally Catholic in the west. Tolerance for all faiths would probably be the law. 2. Who would be considered a citizen? Everyone? 3. Would slavery exist? It’s hard to imagine Rome without it but the point of this experiment, after all, is a modern Rome.
