Freedom House is a trusted organization which since its founding in 1968, has given accurate rankings depicting their freedom. Founded by the mother of the incumbent President of Luziyca (Breuvi Shjoraski), Elanor Shjoraski (nee Torvey), since 1998, it has been led by the brother of Breuvi, Arghet Shjoraski. With consist depictions, we now are ready for the annual rankings, but we are letting nations come to US, so to show how free their country is.

Thus, we hereby present you with guidelines.

As much as you want to hide it from me, we are here to see the TRUTH of your nation.

After our agency has examined these "claims," we rate you at 9/10, due to blatant propaganda, and communist slander since the CIA has proven that your ENTIRE government is a branch of the Communist Party, and the parties are run as various arms to trick your nation, it is hereby NOT FREE.

The Swilatian Republic officially boycotts this survey, as we feel that it would not provide an accurate assessment of civil liberties on our nation, or in any other. These four questions simply would not provide enough information to work with, as the first two are much too vaguely worded, while the other two address issues which, while related to human rights, carry less importance than many issues that are not directly addressed in this survey.

Additionally, the organisation responsible for this survey is too closely tied to the Luziycan government, and is likely to produce biased reports.

First off, to address your first claim, the four questions are more than enough to offer insight. When we know it, our gophers can come in, sniff the truth and then let the result up, the way the nation was meant to be.

Secondly, we are NOT closely tied to the Luziycan government. Only a communistic nation like yourself would accuse us, when in reality, we are a private organization. It is just a pure coincidence that my older brother became President of my own nation, because he was chosen in the Whig Primary of 2012. If we were, we'd be producing biased reports. The sheer fact that the reports REFLECT nations as it really is.

The nation, when we examined it had shown glaring flaws, from the flying of the flag of "northern Korea," which is Korean territory illegally under communist occupation, to the various gulags and murders.

First off, to address your first claim, the four questions are more than enough to offer insight. When we know it, our gophers can come in, sniff the truth and then let the result up, the way the nation was meant to be.

Secondly, we are NOT closely tied to the Luziycan government. Only a communistic nation like yourself would accuse us, when in reality, we are a private organization. It is just a pure coincidence that my older brother became President of my own nation, because he was chosen in the Whig Primary of 2012. If we were, we'd be producing biased reports. The sheer fact that the reports REFLECT nations as it really is.

Unless your definition of freedom is hinged entirely on these two conditions, these four questions do not in any way provide an accurate picture of the nations taking the survey. The survey, for instance does not address freedom of speech or freedom of assembly, which are generally agreed on to be important civil liberties. Any repressive dictatorship should be able to claim that they allow "some" human rights, and thus meet the standard set by this survey.

Instead, the survey suggests that the most basic civil liberties are less important than the freedom to use drugs, which seems to be treated as a negative condition. The results of the survey tend to rate nations with similar policies to Luziyca as "free", which is more than enough to suggest ties to the Luziycan government, and an utterly absurd definition of "freedom". In any case, most of the reports have been heavily biased, going as far to characterise every other nation as a stereotypical single-party communist state, regardless of their actual political system.

Of course, the definition of freedom is absolutely NOT hinged on these two conditions. I repeat, they are NOT hinged. And the intent, was to show, that some of our allies are not actually free, or partially free, really. Since then, it has evolved to be an accurate representation of the nations. Indeed, drug use is negative, because it shows that they are more likely to believe in communist ideology, which is an unforgivable sin. However, we assess civil rights too, by the elections. If the elections are free and fair, they have high civil rights.

In regards to the second point, we DO NOT have an absurd definition of freedom, let alone have ties with the Luziycan Government, except to advise them on which nations to establish ties with, and which ones to avoid. And our definition of freedom, even though it is similar to our government's definition, it DOES NOT indicate ties with our government. If we got funding from our government, we'd let everyone know. Since we obviously don't, it can be considered that we have ZERO ties with our government.

We determined you were a communist government by the fact that there is a single party system, that all arms of your government were operated by the communist party, and the fact that there are gulags within your nation.

And that there is a two-party system, the communists do not operate our country in any sort of way, and that every nation has a prison system makes us wonder what is being smoked in your offices. The communists do not rule Lanos nor ever will. As the Swilatians have said, this is incredibly biased.

When our agency examined your nation, it was revealed that it is a full blown communist dictatorship, aligned with the DPRK, and thus, without hesitation, Freedom House has no choice but give your nation 10/10, and the dreaded NOT FREE status, to be bestowed until a true French monarch rises, and not a Kim Jong-un like figure who is Korean.
