The mountainous plateau is a sunny,
fertile land. The land has spring green
grass, and a settle simplicity to it. At the
same time, in the background huge char-
coal grey steep, rocky, and harsh moun-
tains overpower the land, and are the
home of the many mountain animals.
There is no available water sources

nearby such as lakes or streams. The land
is remote and isolated like the desert, ex-
cept for some bison. The at land has
grass hinges, like small shrubs emerging
from the ground. The whole entire plain
is treeless, with not one in sight. The roll-
ing hills beneath the mountain are like
green waves washing upon the shore.
The sunset is like a wave of an amber, fad-
ing into champagne gold. The smell of
the land has a fresh cut grass, and on
mornings, it has a foggy and misty air,
which tickles on your skin, with a refresh-
ing coolness.
In this favorable geographical environ-
ment the civilization of Dubnation will
be founded. It is a whose design takes in-
spiration from the study of past civiliza-
tions such as the Arabs, the Aztecs, the
Greeks, the Mayans, the Mesopotamians,
and the Romans, among others. This
book will document the necessary steps
to take, in order to create a successful civi-
lization.

SECTION 1
Part I - Analysis of the problem
The rst step in building a successful
civilization is to secure basic human
needs such as food and water. Due to its
geography, the major challenges the civili-
zation of Dubnation faces in achieving a
basic food and water supply include the
following:

The reason because adaptations and
modications are so important because
they help you get what is necessary to sur-
vive and live more comfortably. Adapta-
tions are when you change yourself, to t
in the environment around you. A modi-
cation is when you change the environ-
ment to t your lifestyle and personality.
A very mountainy and grassy place
would be a hard place to start a civiliza-
tion, since having no rivers, streams, and
lakes nearby, it would be hard to grow
crops, and since it doesn't rain much, the
grass would dry up and the bison
couldn't eat and the would die out, being
a major food problem too. Also the bison
are great for transporting supplies. So if
they die, my people will have no food or
anything to help carry supplies, allowing
my civilization to crumble.

This is a Mayan irrigation system, that transports water.
George, Aidan Leigh Monday, June 2, 2014 2:58:42 PM Aidan-Leigh George Pacic Daylight Time 70:56:81:af:f9:65
Part II - Proposed Solutions
Water:
To solve the water issue is to build an
aqueduct on top of the mountain to col-
lect snowmelt and rainfall, and store it in
a reservoir, and bring bison to carry the
water to wells and homes.
Food:
What my people would do to solve
the food problems are ... built terraces,
or earth steps, into the hills to create more
at land for farming (Frey 268). Another
idea to solve the food issue, is to keep
some bison, so they can reproduce and do-
mesticate them to carry items. Also, the
people of Dubnation could collect snow
and ice, and make a refrigerator, so the
house/village can conserve food.
In conclusion, Dubnation is a civiliza-
tion that needs many elements and things
to thrive and succeed. The People of Dub-
nation have found ways to improvise,
adapt, and overcome. From water to food
6
These are the mayan earth steps, this design was created to cre-
ate land for farming.

and transportation, the people have g-
ured it out. They will thrive and succeed.

Law & Government
George, Aidan Leigh Monday, June 2, 2014 2:58:42 PM Aidan-Leigh George Pacic Daylight Time 70:56:81:af:f9:65
SECTION 1
A very important lesson to be learned
from the past, is to satisfy people, equal-
ity, and a smooth running government.
Athens: The Athenian government was a
democracy. A democracy is when the peo-
ple decide to pass or reject laws, decide
government ofcials, and most of the im-
portant decisions of the civilization. They
Maintaining Civil Order
9
George, Aidan Leigh Monday, June 2, 2014 2:58:42 PM Aidan-Leigh George Pacic Daylight Time 70:56:81:af:f9:65
held an assembly to pass laws. This is the
lesson to be learned from this civilization
is to let people rule themselves, and be
more independent.Sparta: In the Spartan
Government, at rst it was a monarchy. A
monarchy is when there is 2 kings in
charge of government. The people who
decided to pass had to be 60 years old
and up. The group was called the Coun-
cil of Elders. The Council of Elders had
28 men over the age of 60, and 2 kings.
The Council of Elders had to serve for
life. The Council of Elders held an Assem-
bly, and showed people the laws, and if
they should pass them or not. Roman Re-
public: In the Roman Republic, the rst
system of government was a oligarchy, an
oligarchy is when a few wealthy men
have the political power to pass laws. The
upper-class citizens of Rome, or patri-
cians, were wealthy, and have a comfort-
able life style. The lower/middle class citi-
zens of Rome, were the Plebeians. As a
result, a small group of families held all
the power in Rome (Frey 319). Lesson
#1: Citizen Satisfactory In a civilization,
satisfying the civilization is a key factor
10
George, Aidan Leigh Monday, June 2, 2014 2:58:42 PM Aidan-Leigh George Pacic Daylight Time 70:56:81:af:f9:65
for peace, and no rebellions. At rst,
Rome was terrible, solidifying this neces-
sity. In the Roman Republic, there were 2
kinds of people. Patricians and Plebeians.
The people who decided the laws were
the Patricians. The plebeians were the peo-
ple who had to go into war. This caused
outbreak in Rome. That is the reason why
who should satisfy a citizens. Lesson #2:
Equality In a civilization, it is key to let
everybody have equal rights. This is im-
portant because if every one doesnt have
equal rights, it could cause rebellions. At
rst Rome did not meet this requirement,
resulting to ghts and rebellions. That is
why equality is a key factor to a success-
ful civilization.Lesson #3: Smooth Govern-
ment In a civilization, one of the most im-
portant things is to keep a government
running smoothly, with no faults and or
errors. This is really important because if
there is a government shutdown, it will
leave many people without jobs. That is
why a smooth government is key to a civi-
lization. In conclusion, You need to satisfy
the people of your civilization, to stop
ghts. You need to have equality because
11
George, Aidan Leigh Monday, June 2, 2014 2:58:42 PM Aidan-Leigh George Pacic Daylight Time 70:56:81:af:f9:65
then people may get angry. Finally, you
need to have a smooth running govern-
ment, so people wont lose jobs.
A main idea to take away from the suc-
cessful political leadership of Julius Cae-
sar is to make sure that the poor don't get
poorer and the rich don't get too power-
ful. Julius Caesar was the leader of Rome
from 45 B.C.E to 35 B.C.E. He satised all
people wether homeless or poor. He
helped the poor not get any poorer by giv-
ing them jobs. He made sure that the rich
dont get any more powerful by halting
the extensive use of slavery. Yet the Sen-
ate, who decided the laws, thought that
Julius Caesar had way to much power,
and killed him. He gave work to thou-
sands of Romans by starting projects to
make new roads and public buildings. By
limiting the number of slaves estates
could employ, poor free people were able
to nd more work. To keep the poor
happy, he staged gladiator contests they
could watch for free. He halted the exten-
sive use of slavery in rural areas and pro-
vided jobs for poor people by passing a
measure requiring that a third of the

zens.
Reduced taxes and made collections fair.
Granted citizenship to people in Gaul and
Spain. Gave land to landless peasants and
soldiers. Stopped governors from taking
away peoples wealth. As dictator, Julius
Caesar introduced many economic and so-
cial reforms. A main idea to take away
from the unsuccessful political leadership
of Caesar is not popularize the leader and
consider him a god. He had so much
power, the Senate killed him by stabbing
him 23 times, since they didnt like how
Caesar ruled. Had his name stamped on
coins. His statue put in the temple wear-
ing royal purple. Took power away from
the senate. Appointed civil ofcers and
judges. In conclusion, Caesar was a good
man, helping the poor people get jobs,
and rich not get any more powerful, but
since he has so much power, the Senate
killed him.
Learning from the problems in the past of
the political leadership of Augustus, Dub-
nation learned to satisfy all of the citizens.
This important because if the people get
angry, they will rebel Augustus did not
achieve this because he made childless
13
George, Aidan Leigh Monday, June 2, 2014 2:58:42 PM Aidan-Leigh George Pacic Daylight Time 70:56:81:af:f9:65
families and unmarried people pay more
tax when buying food and property. He
did this because he wanted more people
and families pay taxes. More people
equals more tax. One of the most impor-
tant problems to solve is taxes and tax col-
lections. As stated by...(...he ordered a cen-
sus of the empires population. This made
collecting of taxes more fair and efcient.)
Another major problem that should be
taken away from is to give everybody
equal rights.In conclusion, he accom-
plished most of the problems that Caesar
left for him. Yet, he did not solve some of
the major problems that would have
made for a successful civilization.
The major problems or concerns of the
civilization of Dubnation are Recourses,
Safety, and Equality.
Recourses: This is a problem because in
the civilization of Dubnation, there is lit-
tle water or rainfall. So if someone takes
all the water, there may be a drought and
many people would die of
dehydration.Food: This is can also be a
problem because in the civilization of
Dubnation, there is only a certain amount
of Bison available at one time. This may
cause a serious problem, because this is
the main source of protein. Safety: This is
a major issue because the land is vast and
14
George, Aidan Leigh Monday, June 2, 2014 2:58:42 PM Aidan-Leigh George Pacic Daylight Time 70:56:81:af:f9:65
has a lot of dan-
gerous features
like mountains
and cliffs. This is
an issue because
a citizen may get lost farming or collect-
ing goods far away. Equality: This is an is-
sue because people may have different
houses and quality of items, and people
may Rebel. These are some laws that are
necessary to enforce. For food and water
purposes, people should only should be
able to take a certain amount of food/
water. For safety purposes, a person un-
der a certain age should not be allowed to
be in a unsupervised area at a certain
time at night. For equality, everybody
should have the same luxury as any other
person, this is im-
portant to enforce
because people
may rebel.
I No abuse (child,
animal, etc.) Penalty is 5 years in prison.
II No slaves. Penalty is 10 years in jail.
III Minor punishment is community serv-
ice.
IV Must have a witness and lawyer in
court, If not, the will be sentenced to jail
for a certain amount of time.
V No drug or alcohol abuse. Penalty is 5
years in jail.
15
George, Aidan Leigh Monday, June 2, 2014 2:58:42 PM Aidan-Leigh George Pacic Daylight Time 70:56:81:af:f9:65
VI Free medical insurance.
VII No homeless, and if there are, they
will get a complimentary apartment/
home.
VIII If leader commits a crime, a new
leader shall be elected immediately.
IX Only allowed to take a certain amount
of resources at one time (Food,water,land,
etc.) Penalty is 7 years in jail.
X Not allowed to cheat/ rip off customers
if you are a shopkeeper, if not then the
next day they have to sell everything for
free.
Age limit to certain products, and if some-
one breaks this law, they will have to do
community service.
XI All people under a certain age, they
may not go out on the street at a certain
time at night, if not then a policeman will
escort them home and talk to the parents.
XII There shall be boundaries for land,
and if they break this law, the have to
give a part of their land to the victim.
XIII No one can steal someones crops. If
this law is broken, they must give all their
crops to the victim.
These specic laws will help create a suc-
cessful civilization because these stop citi-
zens from harm, and help citizens be
equal.

The main ideals that led to the decline of
the Western Roman is unemployment.
This led to the decline of Rome because if
people are unemployed, people will have
no choice but to turn to crime. In Rome
this was a problem because the adults
that were unemployed, couldnt send
their kids to school. Another problem is
that they had to turn to crime. That is bad
because people would start to kill other
innocent people. This results in a popula-
tion decrease. The biggest problem is of a
lot of the population is unemployed, they
wont be able to pay their taxes, this is ma-
jor problem because if the government
cant get enough money from taxes, they
wont be able to buy resources for the mili-
tary, or build new buildings, like libraries
or new houses. This will result in unem-
ployed, angry mobs, rebellions, and
many civil wars. According to Decline of
the Western Roman Empire, A farmer
who had to pay workmen (non-slaves)
could not produce goods as cheaply as
the wealthy landowners. As a result,
many farmers could not compete with
these low prices and lost or sold their
farm. This is a problem that can bring a
whole civilization to its knees. In conclu-
sion, the main problem in the Western Ro-
man Empire is unemployment.

The people of Dubnation will solve these
problems by establishing safety forces.
Dubnation will establish a police and re
force. This will solve the problems of the
Western Roman Empire by keeping the
robbers, etc. off the streets so people will
be and feel safe. This is important be-
cause people will be able to have chil-
dren, have a family and a job, and be able
to pay taxes and put food on the table. Ac-
cording to Decline of the Western Roman
Empire, Even during Pax Romana there
were 32,000 prostitutes in Rome. This is
not ok because if there is so much crime
on the streets of Rome, it will be danger-
ous. In conclusion, the main problem of
the Western Roman Empire is unemploy-
ment.

The importance of belief systems
Why is a belief system important for a
successful civilization?
It is important to have a religion or belief
system in your civilization because peo-
ple depend on this to make the right
choices.
Impact of Belief Systems
20
George, Aidan Leigh Monday, June 2, 2014 2:58:42 PM Aidan-Leigh George Pacic Daylight Time 70:56:81:af:f9:65
To better understand the role for belief
systems within a civilization and how
they can inuence actions and decisions
of a person, consider the following moral
dilemma:
Joe is a fourteen-year-old boy who
wanted to go to camp very much. His fa-
ther promised him he could go if he
saved up the money for it himself. So Joe
worked hard at his paper route and saved
up the $40 dollars it cost to go to camp,
and a little more besides. But just before
camp was going to start, his father
changed his mind. Some of his fathers
friends decided to go on a special shing
trip, and Joe's father was short of the
money it would cost. So he told Joe to
give him the money he had saved from
the paper route. Joe didn't want to give
up going to camp, so he thinks of refus-
ing to give his father the money.
If Joe were a Hindu in this situation Joe
would give his dad the money. Joe would
do this because Joe should follow his
Dharma by being a good son and getting
good Karma so that when he reincar-
nates, he will be born into a higher class.
By being born into a higher class, Joe can
live the life of a king or queen. If Joe had
bad karma and were born into a lower
class, Joe can be born as a homeless man
21
George, Aidan Leigh Monday, June 2, 2014 2:58:42 PM Aidan-Leigh George Pacic Daylight Time 70:56:81:af:f9:65
or a sheep or even a pig. As stated by
Frey Dharma stands for law, obligation,
and duty. (148). They believe that if you
do your duty, it is good for your karma
and could be reincarnated in a higher
class. In conclusion, Joe would give his
dad the money so that it is good for his
karma and could be born in to a higher
class.
If Joe were a Confucianist, he would no
choice but to give his dad the money. He
would do this because in Confucianism
he have to respect your elder like parents
and older siblings because they are much
more experienced with life and a lot
wiser. As stated by Frey All people must
respect and obey those above them.
(208). In Confucianism you have to re-
spect and obey your elders and older peo-
ple than you because they are much wiser
and more experienced with the ways of

life. In conclusion, Joe would give his dad
the money because you have to obey and
respect all your elders.
If Joe were a Buddhist, in this situation,
he would give his dad the money because
he does not want to be selsh and mean
to his father. Also, you would want to
reach enlightenment by doing the right
things. You also want to follow the eight-
fold path. The eightfold path is eight
laws that include the best ways to live
and to treat other people. As stated by
Frey This path follows the middle
way. (159) By everybody reaching en-
lightenment, everyone will know what is
right and what is the wrong action. In con-
clusion, if Joe were a practicing Buddhist,
he would give his dad the money to not
be selsh.
A belief system will forever change a civi-
lization. Your belief system helps you de-
cide how to handle moral dilemmas.

Most belief systems teach us to be consci-
entious, humble and always respect our
fellow man. That why a belief system is
im-
portant to a civilization.
Role of the Catholic Church in Medieval
Europe
The Roman Catholic Church in Medieval
Europe grew in both economic and politi-
cal power after the collapse of the West-
ern Roman Empire in 476 C.E. The
Church grew in Economical power be-
cause it was the largest landowners in
Europe. In political reasons, the have the
power to create or edit laws because in
the civilization, they were the only who
could read and write. The king relied a lot
on the Pope and other church ofcials to
certify his actions within a civilization,
and also to make laws. The Church also
collected tax called tithe. Tithe is things
like crops, valuables, and money. One can
choose what to donate, but you have to
donate 1/10 of it. All in all, the church
had both economic and political power

for these reasons. This is why they did not collapse like the Western Roman Em-
pire in 4776 C.E.
The Roman Catholic Church inuenced
people to do the right deeds and an ac-
tion by Pope Urban IIs teaching on salva-
tion. Salvation is a ticket to heaven. If the
person can achieve salvation, they will go
to heaven, and everybody wanted to
achieve that. This happened because all
the people within the civilization want to
achieve salvation. "The Church inu-
enced the people because they all want to
go to heaven. The Church also inuenced
the people to ght in the many crusades
against the Islams because they were a
different belief system than Christianity.

wanted to achieve salvation.
Role of the Catholic Church and its Belief

Dubnation Belief Systems
In an effort to create a successful civiliza-
tion, the people of Dubnation have estab-
lished their own belief system. It shares
similar religious beliefs and teachings
with other world religions and helps the
people of Dubnation because they know
the right choices to moral dilemmas. Here
are some examples.
The meet is when people attend a cere-
mony in which they pray together and
think what is negative in their life, and
the talk together about how they can
solve it. This relates to Salat because they
pray in the direction of Mecca 5 times a
day. As stated by Frey Muhammad said
that prayer is proof of Islam. (97). If
they pray the people of Dubnation should
be more connected to their faith and
know what is right and wrong. In conclu-
sion, this belief is important because it
teaches people to be true to their faith.

In cherry on top you have to donate
money to people who are homeless. This
is important because it makes you look
nice and also it is a good thing to do. It
teaches people respect and to be tolerant
to other cultures and people. As stated by
Frey Zakat helps provide for many
needs. (98). The reason this is so impor-
tant and can create such a successful civili-
zation is because people will help each
other and this will inuence them to
make the right choices. In conclusion, the
belief cherry on top is important because
people will help schools and other things
that need help.
Treat others as nicely as possible and they
will be nice to you. This belief I carried
out by being nice to everybody and to try
and be friends. In Dubnation, legend has
it that if you make a friend, an angel gets
its wings. It helps to create a civilization
because people want to be friends and

SECTION 1
The humanist mindset promoted new
ideas during the Renaissance because it
taught everybody about their own indi-
viduality, this affected many different
things within the civilization, like govern-
ment and social standing. During the
15th century, a whole new mindset was
introduced. It was called humanism. Hu-

manism was a mindset that Philosophers,
Scholars and many people believed that
everybody had worth. Before the human-
ist mindset, they thought that if you were
a peasant, you would stay one, but this
new mindset changed everything. It
helped people understand their own
worth. This changed the ways of the so-
cial standing within the 15th century be-
cause the people believed they had worth
as in that they could become anything.
For example, if you were a peasant, you
would stay a peasant, but with a human-
ist mindset, peasants thought they could
be the next kings. The. Humanist mindset
also changed the government. The hu-
manist mindset changed the government
because it separated the church from
state. As stated by Frey Humanists sepa-
rated the state and its right to rule from
the church (321). This was a good thing
within the Renaissance time period be-
cause people could focus on life separate
from church and religion. This also
helped people because they used to only
focus on their afterlife in heaven, not their
life on earth, but with a humanist mind-
set, they could focus on their life on earth.
This means that people could focus on
work and things outside church and relig-
ion. This mindset will help to create a suc-
cessful civilization. All in all, the human-
ist mindset during the Renaissance time
helped to create a successful civilization
because people could focus on them-
selves on earth, not heaven.

The practices that made people think that
the church was corrupt were that the
heavens were in the sky, but Galileo
proved that the teaching was incorrect.
He proved this was incorrect by invent-
ing a breakthrough invention called the
telescope; he looked in the sky, and saw
planets and moons, not heaven. The peo-
ple of the civilization then questioned the
churchs teachings, and thought that the
church corrupt. There were also people
like Martin Luther, who challenged the
churchs teaching. As stated by Frey a
priest named Martin Luther became in-
volved in a serious dispute with church
authorities. (352) Martin Luther thought
that you only have to perform two sacra-
ments, Baptism, and the Eucharist. This
religion today is called Lutheranism. The
church was getting very concerned that

people would pick up and practice his
teachings, so they warned him, and he
still printed his books on his teachings.
They banned him from printing his
books, and then they burned him at the
stake. They did this because he was a
threat to the churchs teachings; this is an
example on how a humanist mindset can
threaten its entirety. All in all these two
people, Galileo and Martin Luther
changed a civilization by having a human-
ist mindset.
If a humanist could be placed within the
civilization of Dubnation, it would be
Leonardo daVinci. This human being is
benecial to the civilization of Dubnation
because he would challenge the most of
anyone else within the civilization. As
stated by Frey Many of the inventions he
drew such as the helicopter and the sub-
marine, were centuries ahead of their
time. (344). He would challenge the ar-
chitecture, technology, and everything
else. He would challenge the design of
the buildings, and the way the aqueduct
was designed, this kind of individual is a

key role to help create for a successful civi-
lization. In conclusion, an individual with
a humanist mindset is important to a civi-
lization to be successful is because they
challenge everything.
