Citizenship is a Technology in Empire: Total War.


The idea of belonging to a society and adhering to its rules in order to reap the benefits of being a citizen.

A man must be accountable for his own actions, for if he is not, is he a man at all? When actions are considered in the context of others, men begin along the path of citizenship. With the status of citizen there are responsibilities that are inherent in this position. In order to gain the advantages and privileges of being a citizen, a man must adhere to the rules laid out by those that have made him this.

The idea of citizenship hails from Classical antiquity, and in particular the study of Roman authors and their views upon Roman Republic politics. Certain members of society were given "citizenship", in effect creating a ruling class with greater political and social rights than their fellow nationals. Slaves and foreigners were not to be given political rights, and any social rights they had were limited at best. This "Roman" idea of citizenship did not imply any move to democracy of any kind, but it did imply a commonality of interests among the citizenry.
