@Mark C. Wallace Tsarist Russia also suffered from a lot of deadly famines. It was not command-driven.

comment When did the Romans finally acknowledge that they were living in an empire?
@user5001 they definitely thought they were in republic after Heraclius as well. There was no contradiction between republic, empire and regnum at the time. Romans called their state "republic" even at the time of the Roman rexes. And the term "republica orbis" continued to be used for the whole Christian world in the Middle Ages.

@user5001 Emperor certainly was not monarch before Heraclius, in modern terms it was "dictatorship". Also note that the predecessor of Heraclius, Phocas was desposed by the senate, which indicates that at least senators did not consider the state to be monarchy.

comment Is there any country(former colony) in the world that obtained independence and then again tried to join its colonist ruler?
What do u mean as "join its colonist ruler"? Do u mean only rejoining as a colony or to become a part of the metropoly's state or join some kind of union?
