This is a fairly laid back map. The terrain is rough and the demands are high, but there are ample resources, trade is good and attacks are easily managed. The enjoyment comes from building custom designs in the rugged, mostly elevated terrain.
This map should run eternally hands-off with little to no issues, generating a modest surplus of revenue at 18% taxation. Because the only source of taxation is a single Senate, there was little incentive to evolve most plebs beyond small casa.
