Thoughts on the Romulan Empire

I thought I'd begin a discussion on how everyone views the structure and culture of the Romulan Empire based on what we've seen.

I know that most people seem to think that there's a rather Trek-standard military dictatorship in place there, and I can't wholly disagree, but I think there's more to it than that. I don't want to spoil all my own thoughts before I hear what others have to say, but let's say I see them as something of a rather confusing combination of the Roman Empire, China, North Korea, and Imperial Japan circa WWII (which I'll expand more later.)

But let's hear what everyone else thinks.
