So what era of Roman Society are the Romulans based on? Is it a democracy or a dictatorship?
Probably a bit of both.

Who holds the real power, the Senate or the Praetor? Is the Senate elected or appointed?
IIRC, Romulan senators are indeed elected.

How are Praetors selected?
The Continuing Committee, I think. One of their duties is the confirmation of a new Praetor. Although we don't know what process candidates have to go through to get to that point.
