Rome was a capital city that is the most enormous, magnificent, splendid, wealthiest, fortified, and the greatest city in the world. It had 40 million people. It is very huge because the city is stretched magically without going on the land, but did cover all of central Italy. It had magnificent and splendid buildings, and has a bunch of 55 forums at the middle as with the Imperial Palace. It had huge harbors and series of canals. Rome was a tropical paradise. It had a lot of palm trees and has a firefighter and police force to look after the city. And yes, as with every city, there were poor and rich. Everyone speaks Latin, Macedonian, and Greek, in the empire, but rarely, other worldwide languages. Their culture is very advanced, and trading happens more there than anywhere else. With thick walls, fortified with watchtowers, gates, forts and super fire-shot trebuchets made land of sea invasions difficult. Although from China, they adopted the way of gunpowder in using it for fireworks and made a technique of the fire shot. It boasted a sewer system, and organized social service in hospitals, homes, and orphanages. Ships crowded the city's harbors. Luxuries come from all over the world. People without jobs are given, such as sweeping the streets, and weeding public gardens. The city's streets either narrow of wide, grand and board, straight or twisting. People, camels, mule trains, horses, elephants, soldiers, merchants, peasants, water sellers, sweetmeat sellers, porters, beggars, raged children, barefooted slaves, stray dogs and cats, pets, priests, nuns, bishops, archbishops, carriages, and litters all crowd the streets. Many luxuries items, like ivory, silks, fur, perfumes, rum, gold, furniture, Samian ware, fabulous and wealthy jewelry, rich dining utensils, musical instruments, silverware, ornaments, decorating supplies, spices, precious and colored stones, and other luxuries items fled in Rome's and its empire's markets. Statues were very lifelike. Everyone attended circuses, theaters, and amphitheaters. They were one of the many recreations that made the Romans happy. All roads and trade routes lead to Atlantis. Public works were always made, and it has expanded a lot as the population grew. Its ports are centers of warship building, seafood produce, and centers of trading. Canals were water streets where ships drove on, and many monuments are found. There were many arenas where battleships fought, and there were many buildings that could stand on the water. Ships guard and control the waters around the port. Irrigation ditches were built at the ports in swampy areas to deliver to farms to control the water level. Romans had made a filter to turn the water cleaner, and most of the water is delivered the fountains and waterfalls that flow to the canals at the port. Romans refer the ports as paradises. A trillion temples and shrines are dotted in the city. Rome also produces everything in their economy list. The Field of Mars was the most famous monument. Alexander added many parts to it, and became a temple, exercise, and military fort area. Trade always flourished in the empire. There was many food supplies stockpiled in the city. To the Romans, there was no special cargo than grain. It was the main food supply for making bread, pasta, cereals, and crackers. In this city, what's so strange about is that many structures, and there were terraces over terraces, streets above streets, and then zigzag roads and huge flights of steps bordered (and are also found there) with orange and lemon trees, roof-gardens, balconies, deep archways, pillared colonnades, spires, battlements, minarets, and pinnacles. Many government buildings house laws, records, and orders. A trillion churches and monasteries are dotted in the city. The Praetorian Guards, as well as the city defended the entire city. A huge ring surrounded the city, packed with traps to kill and crush the enemy army. The Circle of Caesar, a circle that holds military meetings on what to do in the base, plans on the battles in case they happen. The forts were even located in the city itself. Everyday, people could see soldiers as a magnificent sight. Generals and their army march across the city. Blacksmiths had done the work on improving the army and finding new technologies. Both the senate and the emperor gave orders to the Praetorian Guards. Under the empire, the eagle stands for strength and courage, the lion stands for bravery and honor, and the cross, the symbol of Christianity was the symbol of faith. All of these help the soldiers do well in battle. With guards all over the place, invasion was always difficult. The city still expanded a lot.
