Nova Roma has a worldwide, international central administration and a territorial organization, consisting of provincial, regional and urban subdivisions. The provincia is the highest level of the territorial organization. Provinces are organized as part of the ceremonial military structure of Nova Roma and are administered by military command.

The Nova Roman Republic is divided into a number of provinciae. A provincia can comprise of a single country or several, or can be made up of sub-national units from a single country. Unlike provinces of Canada or American states, Nova Roman provinciae are creations of the senate, the 'national' governing body. The senate, under article V.C. of the the lex Cornelia Domitia de re publica constituenda, can create a new provincia or combine existing ones by senatus consultum. The same lex outlines the powers and duties of the provincial governors. The senate also has the power to appoint and replace governors who appoint the provincial administration and may sub-divide their provincia into regiones for administrative purposes as they deem it necessary.

Governance

The structure of the provincial government varies greatly depending upon the existing conditions of the provincia, but it is always a military command, part of the ceremonial military structure of Nova Roma. Each governor is a commanding general, a special commissioner of the senate with imperium. Officials of each provincial government are officers of the ceremonial (reenactment) army of Nova Roma. Several provinces cross national and linguistic boundaries and thus officials may be appointed to reflect this. Other provinces are geographically large or have isolated populations. There are no real laws concerning organization of provincial government other than as stipulated in article V.C of the lex Cornelia Domitia de re publica constituenda. This creates a flexible framework for the varying realities of the provinciae.

The governor of the province, a local commander-in-chief of the Nova Roman ceremonial (reenactment) army, is either a magistrate or a promagistrate, and depending on this, they can be variously termed, consul, proconsul, praetor, propraetor, or legatus pro praetore; the title depends on previous offices held by the governor. There are some exceptional terms in use, too: the mixed title propraetor pro consule describes a former praetor who was given consular power within his province instead of the usual praetorian power. The title quaestor pro praetore indicates a temporary governorship when the quaestor of a province is standing in for the previous governor by the will of the senate until a permanent successor is found. The title dux distinguishes the chief-governor of a dioecesis, a cluster of provinces temporarily combined together for reorganization. The "governor" of Italia Nova Romana is called praefectus Italiae. All provincial governors are subordinate to the senate and to the central magistrates.

Both the administrative office of the governor and the headquarter of the provincial administration are called the praetorium. The governor's staff personnel, the cohors praetoria, consist of various officials executing the orders of the governor and may include legates, prefects and scribes, more rarely a provincial quaestor or proquaestor, sometimes a curator aranearius and a provincial sacerdos.

In some provinces, the governor shares his power with a provincial council, the consilium provinciae, but in most of the provinces it is just an advisory body to assist the governor, and there are also provinces where there is no consilium provinciae at all.

It is a very important point to note that provincial administrations are not territorial "self-governments"; Nova Roman provinciae are not independent or autonomous, nor free from the strict control of the central administration but, on the contrary, they are tools of the central government to take directives and execute orders and instructions given from the senate and the consuls. The provinces of Nova Roma, just like those in the ancient republic, are a means for unity and effective administrative action, and not a provision for federalism or territorial autonomy.

Province Status Evaluations

As required under senatus consultum de provinciis ordinandis, governors are required to report annually on the activity and viability of their province based on five key performance indicators. Evaluations are recorded upon the annual delivery of reports, required by the Kalends of February each year as articulated in senatus consultum de relationibus praesidum provinciarum.

Provinces can receive one of four evaluations: Excellent, Active, Unsatisfactory or Abandoned. A province which is evaluated exclusively as only Unsatisfactory or Abandoned variously within five consecutive years, shall be, at the fifth time of receiving either of these marks, shall be automatically dissolved without the need of any further decision by the senate. A province which is evaluated as Abandoned for two consecutive years, shall be, at the second time of receiving this mark, automatically dissolved without the need of any further decision by the senate.

The table below shows a maximum of a five-year period and the recorded status of each province at the Kal. Feb. reporting mark. As per article III.A of senatus consultum de provinciis ordinandis, implemented on a.d. VIII Id. Oct. Q. Arrio (II) T. Domitio (III) cos., the first evaluation occurs the following Kal. Feb. of Q. Arrio (III) A. Tullia cos.
