A decadent Roman Empire survives never fell and survived in 1206, but an interdimensional tourist named Alex Johnson decided to turn the entire world into a tourism resort for Homeline. He seems to be moderately successful, and his agents are slowly eradicating slavery, bloody gladiatorial games, etc., while retaining other forms of hedonism; he even bribed a Roman admiral into sailing to the Americas because he wanted tobacco. The natives are more or less used to strange-looking visitors.
