Social structure of Nova Roma

An assiduus (assidua, female, assidui, plural), is a taxpayer citizen of Nova Roma who has at least 16 or 17 census points.

This means that, currently, there are three categories:

  • citizens who pay taxes and have more than 16 census points: these are termed assidui,
  • citizens who pay taxes but don't have more than 16 census points: these are termed taxpayer capite censi
  • citizens who don't pay taxes: these are termed non-taxpayer capite censi

An assiduus citizen is a member of the social elite of Nova Roma, a privilege open to all citizens who are dedicated enough to pay the small amount of "tax" (membership fee) of Nova Roma, and to participate in some activities in order to collect the entry level 16-17 census points. Assiduus citizens are distributed into the 31 rural tribes (against the 4 urban tribes of the capite census citizens) and into the 30 centuries of the 5 classes (against the 1 single century of the capite censi). These instructions ensure that assidui have an overwhelming voting power in all comitia, but specially in the comitia centuriata.

Previous use of this term in Nova Roma

Formerly in Nova Roma, assidui all taxpayers were classified assidui, and everybody who failed to pay the membership fee was classified as capite census. Since St. Cornelia C. Aemilio cos. MMDCCLXVII a.u.c., not all taxpayers are classified as assidui, but only those who have at least 16 census points, the rest of the taxpayers are demoted to the capite censi.
