Atreides Posted September 21, 2005 Share Posted September 21, 2005 Imagine it's the age of the classical empires (Greece, Egypt, China etc). You, the new leader of a small kingdom-nation that is on the verge of greatness have the opportunity to establish the laws, values and customs of your culture. What would you emphasise in your kingdom-nation that will continue to evolve into the present day? Remember, it has to be reasonable for that time and sustainable for future generations. How do you imagine your society-nation will turn out in the present day? I'll start things off by proposing my own: Overall closer to Greek civilisation. -Central government that coordinates projects of local governments (such as irrigation, financial systems like currency, trade, standards of measurement etc). -Promotion based on merit rather than inheritance. -Emphasis on minimal standard of education for everyone. -Engineering, mathematics and art development in higher institutes of learning. -Well funded and developed military primarily as deterrant. Mostly elite units (vs large enlisting) trained and well armed, possibly with developments from engineering institutes of learning. -Rather than conquering, expansion is encouraged to be by other areas wanting to be part of the nation because of better standards of living/culture.
