The Senate of Nova Roma is a council where a select few citizens, mostly former or current magistrates, can discuss the state of the Republic and issue statements on what course of action they perceive most beneficial. These may be advisory or decisive in nature, the latter mostly in regards to appointments. It is said by Polybian theorists to represent the element of Oligarchy in the Roman political equilibrium.

Members of the Senate

Current consuls, praetors, censors and appointed senators are members of the Nova Roman Senate. Senators are appointed by the censors. The list of senators is regularly revised by the censors, but senators are only removed if they bring the Senate into disrepute.

Present and former holders of higher magistracies are not necessarily senators but have the right to participate in meetings of the Senate (the ius sententiae) by virtue of their office. A person who holds a higher magistracy will normally become a senator after his term of office.

Tribunes of the plebs are entitled to attend the sessions of the Senate but don't have the ius sententiae unless they are senators.

The current senators and former magistrates with the ius sententiae are, in order of senatorial rank:
