Imperia is the plural of imperium, the Latin word for command over others, rule by an individual, or rule by an elite few.â[â¦]âImperia include antidemocratic command structures. Imperia exist wherever control is permanently exercised by an individual or an elite minority who are fewer than half of the members of any social group.
