Love it, but I'm wondering something. If the spanish inquisition is the inquisition of spain, not a specific spanish person; should the romulan inquisition be "the inquisition of romulus" instead? It's not like romulan ale is {romuluSngan HIq}.

Good question.

"the Spanish" are people from Spain, so perhaps the Spanish Inquisition is also the inquisition by the Spanish, rather than by Spain? romuluSngan can be plural as well, i.e. "the inquisition by the Romulans = the Romulan inquisition".
