Would it be awkward if I say "reign" instead of "regime"?
It may be, yes! You use the word "reign" with a royal or sovereign rule. You use the word "regime" when referring to governments or systems. Ex: I have a new workout regime. Ex: The reign of Queen Victoria lasted for 64 years. Ex: They say the government regime has changed.
