Umm... Yes, exactly.

I can just imagine the CIA factbook entry. "Independence: July 2003.
Independence from: The Roman Empire." Or perhaps we declare our independence
from the Ottoman Empire. Or Prussia.

Seriously, though, the current calendar is not the one created by the
Romans. Not exactly. The Soviets hated the latest revision, which put the
anniversary of the October Revolution in November.
