No standing army, but instead all wars are fought with mercenaries... Suits the new government, but it's definitely a risky venture. Adding Rome to your territory would all but solidify your claim to the rest of the world.
It mainly arose as a need to combat the various factions in the Republic and the external claims: with the money the Republic has, two large mercenary companies can defeat almost any standing levy army. Though they do deplete the reserve pretty fast...
The future looks Roman!
