The goal of the census is to determine the accurate number of citizens who make up Nova Roma. This page is dedicated to the census of the year Sex. Lucilio (II) A. Tullia (II) cos. MMDCCLXXV a.u.c..

Census in Roma Antiqua

The census was a register of Roman citizens and of their property, first established by Servius Tullius, the fifth king of Rome. After the expulsion of the kings it was taken by the consules, until censores were appointed for the purpose of taking it in 443 B.C.

The census, the first and principal duty of the censors, for which the proper expression is censum agere (Liv. III. 3, 22, IV.8), was always held in the Campus Martius, and from the year B.C. 435 in a special building called Villa Publica, which was erected for that purpose by the second pair of censors, C. Furius Pacilus and M. Geganius Macerinus (Liv. IV.22; Varr. R. R. III.2). Learn more...
Census in Nova Roma

The legal basis for organizing the Census in Nova Roma consists of:

The census is under the jurisdiction and responsibility of the Officium Censuale, the censors and their official staff serving during the year 2775 a.u.c.

The current census was completed within 139 days (including the first and last day). This period included an extention by 37 days with an edict on a.d. XV Kal. Sept. (Aug 18) and a further unofficial extension of 8 days declared on a.d. VII Id. Oct. (Oct 9) to align the close of the lustrum with the October Horse festival.

The last complete census was closed a.d. XIII Kal. Ian. Q. Arrio (II) T. Domitio (III) cos. MMDCCLXXIII a.u.c.. This census was completed in two periods, commenced under the censorship of Sex. Lucilius and A. Tullia. Following a pause due to the political changes after the collapse of the coup regime and re-acquisition of the internet assets of Nova Roma, including the Censorial Database, it was re-started again in the year Q. Arrio P. Annaeo cos. MMDCCLXXII a.u.c., under the censorship of A. Tullia and Cn. Lentulus, concluding in December under the suffect censorship of A. Tullia and C. Tullius.

Useful Information

Generally, those already counted for the census are:

  • those who voted in the main election.
  • those who have paid taxes for the current calendar year including exempts.
  • persons who became citizens during the current calendar year.

Resolved under edict and under the authority of the senatus consultum ultimum, the current census automatically (without the need of registration) includes, besides those mandated by the leges, not only the new citizens of the census years (2019-2020), but also the new citizens who arrived after the coup and aborted last census attempt, in the years Cn. Lentulo T. Domtio cos. – C. Claudio T. Domitio (II) coss. (2016-2018), because they could be registered lawfully only after the beginning of the current census in Q. Arrio P. Annaeo cos. (2019). This involved 98 citizens. The current census automatically includes also those liberator citizens who joined the legions of Nova Roma as reservist members fighting by legal means for saving Nova Roma (in macronational term plaintiffs), as they were the most active and most deserved citizens in this census period to whom we can thank that Nova Roma still exists today.

Governors are entitled to obtain from censors their provincial citizens' data!
