The new and improved
We have a kind emperor. He genorously gives bread to people who cannot find work. In return the people must simply sweep the streets or weed a public garden.
Life on a Peninsula
Because we live on a piece of land with water on 3 sides, trading and fighting is easy for us. Our land would be easy to defend because if enemies were to attack ou, they would most likely come by boat. Trading is easy because boat is the easiest way to transport things is by boat.
Our churches are beautiful. Our orthodox church has beautiful frescos and other art.
We are very advanced in technology. We made a chain so that no one, uninvited, could enter our harbor. We use watchtowers and gates. We also used a sewer system.
