The premise is that you have a character (3.5 ed. more or less), but you're also responsible for a whole nation. Starting off as an individual town/village and expanding and developing your nation into a superpower which competes with other nations.

the possible attributes of advancement are
Agriculture, Military, Philosophy, Politics, and Science.
