    just get really conservative, go way back in time, and adopt the Roman system of taxation through procurators? Privatize the taxation system, give the rich senator or patrician a target for revenue from a specific jurisdiction, and then let them squeeze it out of the population anyway they can.  

    They can reserve some percentage for their own trouble, but if they exceed the agreed upon percentage, they agree to be nailed up on a stake by the side of the road until they die from blood loss and exposure.

      Just remind them Matthew was a tax collector.  They'll fall all over themselves to sign up for the job.
