Can any properties of a ring other than being a field be captured by the geometry of its 2-dimensional free module?

**Background:**
In his wonderful, wonderful book Geometric Algebra, Emil Artin describes the following way of putting coordinates on affine geometries:

Take a 2-dimensional Affine geometry A, that is, a set of lines and a set of points, together with the following axioms:

- Any two points determine a line
- Through any point not on a given line, there passes exactly one line parallel to the given one.
- There exist 3 non-collinear points.

Define a dilatation to be a map of points that sends any line to a line parallel to it (modulo some technical details). Because of the parallel postulate, dilatations are uniquely defined by the images of 2 points.

Then translations are dilatations without any fixed points (or the degenerate translation given by the identity map that has 2 fixed points and hence fixes every point). The direction of a translation τ is defined as the pencil (equivalence class of parallel lines) of the line joining the point P and τ(P). (the pencil does not depend on the choice of point P).

Translations form a group T (the identity mapping being the identity), and if there exist translations in two different directions, the group is commutative.

In the case where T is commutative, the endomorphisms of T that preserve directions form a (not necessarily commutative) ring with identity R.

Another two additional axioms, guarantee a) that R is a division ring and b) that R acts regularly on translations of the same direction, i.e. that if τ_{1} and τ_{2} have the same direction, then τ_{1} is sent to τ_{2} by some element of R.

These axioms are:

4a. For any two points P and Q, there exists a translation mapping P to Q.

4b. For any three points P, Q and R, there exists a dilatation that fixes P and sends Q to R.

Note that 4a. and 4b. are respectively equivalent to the affine formulations of Desargues' Theorem when the three lines are parallel and when the three lines intersect at a single point.

With these four axioms, it follows that choosing a point O and translations τ_{1} and τ_{2} in different directions, we can make A into an affine space over R with (0,0) corresponding corresponding to O, (1,0) to τ_{1}(O) and (0,1) corresponding to τ_{2}(O).

Note that R is commutative (and hence a field) if and only if A satisfies Pappus' Theorem.

**The Question**
The above construction is also reversible and establishes a correspondence between affine geometries satisfying Desargues' theorem and division rings.

It seems to me that we can associate a 'geometry' to any ring via the 2d free module.

Are there any rings (or classes of rings) other than division rings and fields whose 'geometry' can be axiomatized similarly to affine geometries? Are any of them also uniquely determined by that `geometry'?

For example, if the ring is ℤ the geometry consists of a lattice of points in the plane, and seems to me is 'hyperbolic' in the sense that through any point not on a given line there are infinitely many parallel lines (join the given point to any point with non-integer coordinates on the line in question).
