We must inquire, does the clause stipulating freedom of sexual preferences require that a member-state permit homosexual marriages, or merely the relationships?

Seriousness is a Sin to my people! RP-ing a very erratically cultured people, bound to cause conflict somehow. I am RP-ing a race of walrus-people. If you do not like this fact, then just imagine them as jolly fat people with mustaches. It's basically the same thing anyway.
Madness is the Key. Arson should be legalized, and robbing stagecoaches is good for the economy.

They're covered in Beastling which covers sapient animals, and if they're anthropomorphic mixes they're covered under demi-human.

I see. The statement from Crystal Spires is as it should be, and was expected, but this may be too much. Would observer's status be possible?

While the Dracorian government supports full rights for all citizens, economic freedoms and the right to defensive armaments are curiously absent. As such, we will observe from a distance and wish you well.
Also, chocobos.
