IRON is like that bad rash: when we think it's gone already, it starts itching again.

That is what I am naming my as* rash. IRON. Its perfect. IRON is pain in the as* that never really goes away, and is p. repulsive to the rest of the world when you talk about it.

i always assumed it meant "imperial" as in "relating to an empire"

in this case meaning "an empire ruled by the people". in the "north".

Empire and republic are two diametrically opposed concepts. Most civ players can tell you without a poli sci grad being a jerk about it.

you can have a democratic empire, just look at the united states, Britain, rome (pre-sulla), athenian greece, and others. Sure its not a republic for the conquered, but its certainly not a stretch for a republic to have an empire.

The US has a democracy? When did this happen? I just thought we had an oligarchy of 2x parties that were essentially the same that we got to vote for.

Apartheid south africa was democratic - for white people.

No, Graalum, an empire implies wholly concentrated authority, where as democracy implies diffuse authority through its citizens. In the case of the former, a monarch, dictator or tyrant usually represents said authority (sulla, caeser, et al)

As for your examples, note how Britian was never (ok, spare me the Cromwell protectorate) a republic, Rome ceased to be a republic when enfranchisement was rendered irrelevant. Single vs. plural sources of power is the key concept.
