An assiduus is a taxpayer citizen of Nova Roma who has at least 16 census points, a member of the Nova Roman social elite, a privilege open to all citizens who are dedicated enough to pay the small amount of "tax" (membership fee) of Nova Roma. Assiduus citizens are distributed into the 31 rural tribes (against the 4 urban tribes of the capite censi) 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 weight in all comitia, but specially in the comitia centuriata.
(or alternatively called proletarius
) citizens represent the lowest, "outclassed" mass of a Roman society, which in Nova Roma consists of people who are not dedicated enough to contribute financially to the cause of Nova Roma by paying a small amount of membership fee
, and it includes those taxpayers, too, who haven't yet collected enough census points with their activities.
