How would you want to run it? Would you develop a faith to help keep the populace, or would you allow them to maintain their former beliefs? Would you rule with an iron fist, or benevolently? Would you hold all the power for yourself, or assign it to a group of advisors, or elect a form of parliament/senate to dictate laws; would you be at the forefront of leading your nation or would you make yourself a figurehead? Would you try to create a utopia, or try to form an eternal empire? Would you focus on science and engineering, or would you push for other fields of importance? Would you allow the aristocracy to continue as they have, or would you reign in the bourgeiose? How about the common man/woman, where would you stand on the rights of the individual versus committment towards the state?
There are just so many things that can be covered, and I'm too sleep-deprived to think of them all. So, Southperrians, if you had a plot of land with people in it to rule over, how would you do it? But more importantly, why would you make the choices you do?
