Desertum Africanum was claimed by the Romans for the purpose of facilitating trade through that region. The Military of Rome was tasked not only with making it more habitable and dismantling the many bandit tribes roaming about its sands. There is no leadership in this Province, and being called a province is already a courtesy. Desertum Africanum is the largest Province in the Empire and thus would have its management spread out along a wide area. The system of this Desert was to respond to current situations and seek out and attack as many centers of bandits and theives as they could.
