10. Are any major predominant religions in your nation exclusive towards non-heterosexual people? - Many of them are, but it's important to note that even religious Appalachians tend to believe in separation of church and state.

2. Are people allowed to legally immigrate to your nation? - Yes
3. If there is a legal immigration process in your nation, how are people who do not follow it, yet take residence in your nation, handled by the government? - Undocumented immigrants in Appalachia face difficulties - most companies will not hire them, and they are denied access to the national health service. By default, they are deported to their home nation if caught. However, there are numerous exceptions. Firstly, a person who has had children born on Appalachian soil may apply for citizenship. Secondly, a person may apply for refugee status, and remain in the country for as long as it takes for their case to be processed. Thirdly, a person may apply to not be deported and instead enter the citizenship process through a hardship exemption - examples include if they or someone they care for are seriously ill, if they were children when they entered Appalachia, or if - even if they did not enter as refugees - their country of origin is currently experiencing violence or unrest.

7. What is your society's views on different cultures? - Appalachians tend to be proud of their own culture first and foremost, but there isn't really pressure for immigrants to 'integrate' into the national culture. Appalachians tend to be ignorant about foreign cultures, and will treat them with a curiosity that sometimes borders on offensive.
Any other notes?

2. Are non-citizens allowed in your nation on business? Yes.
3. Are non-citizens allowed in your nation to visit family? Yes.

Racial Equality Score
1. Are there laws that prevent public employment discrimination against people based on race? Are these laws actively enforced?
    No. Kyneland is an ethnically homogeneous country, currently led by nationalistic government. Kyneland gained its independence shortly after WWII, and the people have not been very accepting of immigrants. Racist attitudes still persist in society, but these are dying out in favour of ethnocentric indifference.
2. Are there laws that prevent private employment discrimination against people based on race? Are these laws actively enforced?
    No. Private entities are not subject to racial discrimination laws in the same manner as public entities aren’t. Such legislation has not been passed by the Alþing.
3. Are there laws that prevent housing discrimination against people based on race? Are these laws actively enforced?
    No. It is rare to see people use race as a justification to deny housing, but this is mainly due to common manners. Ethnic Kynish are put first on priority housing and benefits.
4. Are there laws that prevent education discrimination against people based on race? Are these laws actively enforced?
    No. Because of the small size of our country and economy, the government hasn’t legislated education discrimination. Ethnic Kynish are our first into education, with others being less of a priority. Some private institutions are ethnically exclusive.
5. Are there laws that prevent public accommodation discrimination against people based on race? Are these laws actively enforced?
    No. As is the same with housing, ethnic Kynish are usually put first.
6. Are there laws that prevent discrimination in issuing marriage licenses or approving adoption based on race? Are these laws actively enforced?
    No. Ethnic Kynish men and women are put first in adoption and marriage. Miscegenation is frowned upon, as well, and this affects marriage licenses.
7. Is your society tolerant of people of different races?
    Not particularly. The only other races encountered by Kynish on a daily basis are Arab or North African migrants, and before the modern age it was really only Kynish explorers that saw or encountered other races. Because of this, Kynish culture has yet to become inclusive and tolerant.
8. Are violent crimes that are proven to be racially motivated charged as hate crimes?
    No, they’re resolved with usual punishments and are not classified specifically. For example, racially-motivated murder is classified as just Mieder and punished accordingly.
9. Do people of different races earn equal wages for equal work? Is this enforced?
    Not exactly. Private entities oftentimes do have racial wage gaps and favour native Kynish, whilst public entities pay people the same provided they actually do the same work.
Any other notes?
    The main encounters the Kynish have had with foreigners weren’t the best. The Kynish were oppressed and subjugated, their gods defaced and insulted, and their culture suppressed. Whilst they have survived, this has led to an unfriendly disposition towards foreigners in general.

    Yes. Equality of the sexes is highly considered and so there are employment discrimination laws that are enforced.

    No. As is the case with racially-motivated crimes, sexually- or gender-motivated crimes are not considered “hate crimes” and are punished as usual.
9. Do men and women earn equal wages for equal work? Is this enforced?
    Yes. Men and women are equal in the workforce and wages, and laws covering such things are enforced.
Any other notes?
    The equality of men and women is a central doctrine in Kynish society and faith.
Disability Score
1. Are there laws that prevent public employment discrimination against people based on disability? Are these laws actively enforced?
    No, a sense of social Darwinism exists within Kynish society. Because of this, disabled people don’t get much protection from discrimination.
2. Are there laws that prevent private employment discrimination against people based on disability? Are these laws actively enforced?
    No, as is the case with public employment discrimination.
3. Are there laws that prevent housing discrimination against people based on disability? Are these laws actively enforced?

    No, there are not, and they’re not enforced either.
7. Does your society provide assistance to those who are disabled and unable to work?
    In a way. The more charitable and unwarriorlike sectors of society take on the majority of work taking care of disabled persons.
8. Are violent crimes that are proven to be motivated by disability charged as hate crimes?
    No. We don’t recognise hate crimes.
9. Do disabled and able-bodied people earn equal wages for equal work? Is this enforced?
    No. Able-bodied persons typically earn much more than disabled persons.
Any other notes?
    The government is sanctioning research into fetus modification and genetic engineering. This is hoped to prevent the birth of disabled persons. Foetuses that are likely to be born disabled are much more likely to be aborted.
LGBTQ Equality Score
Sexuality Subscore
1. Are there laws that prevent public employment discrimination against people based on sexual orientation? Are these laws actively enforced?
    No, but public employment does not typically care about one’s sexuality. There is no need for it.
2. Are there laws that prevent private employment discrimination against people based on sexual orientation? Are these laws actively enforced?
    No, as homosexuality is accepted by society so long as the person isn’t what many would consider “effeminate.” Businesses do not often care about the sexuality of its employees.
3. Are there laws that prevent housing discrimination against people based on sexual orientation? Are these laws actively enforced?
    No, there are not. Ethnicity and religion are the primary factors.
4. Are there laws that prevent education discrimination against people based on sexual orientation? Are these laws actively enforced?
    No. Education is compulsory for all until they reach the age of 18. Universities, colleges and the like do not cite sexuality as reasons for rejection, as that is considered an Abrahamic thing to do.
5. Are there laws that prevent public accommodation discrimination against people based on sexual orientation? Are these laws actively enforced?
    No, there are not. Sexuality is not a factor in acceptance.
6. Are there laws that prevent discrimination in issuing marriage licenses or approving adoption based on sexual orientation? Are these laws actively enforced?
    As marriages are not Abrahamic, there is little need for such laws - which don’t exist. Couples of any sexuality may adopt.
7. Are non-heterosexual marriages legally recognised?
    Yes.
8. Is polygyny legally recognized? Is polyandry legally recognized? Is plural marriage, regardless of the gender of each spouse, recognized?
    Polygamy isn’t recognised. The monarch may have a spouse and court two consorts or concubines, which are treated similarly but not as marriage.
9. Does your society view heterosexual and non-heterosexual people as equal?
    Yes. Our society needed to be unified to face our enemies. Non-heterosexuals aided in solving the orphan issue.
10. Are any major predominant religions in your nation exclusive towards non-heterosexual people?
    Heathenry isn’t exclusive, and allows both heterosexual and non-heterosexual persons. The majority of churches accept non-heterosexual persons with reluctance, but mosques are outright discriminatory to non-heterosexuals.
11. Are violent crimes that are proven to be motivated by sexual orientation charged as hate crimes?
    No.
12. Do heterosexual and non-heterosexual people earn equal wages for equal work? Is this enforced?
    Yes, provided it is really equal work.
Any other notes?
    Kynish society does not approve of “pride” matches. It considers them needlessly divisive and a distraction from the realities of life.

Economic Score
Economic Parity Subscore
1. What is the ratio of income between the nation's 10th percentile and the nation's 90th percentile income earners?
    It’s not that large, because local family businesses are the largest employers and businesses in the country. Corporations aren’t that trusted, but government-owned corporations are somewhat trusted and employ many people on fair wages. Profits go into bettering the business and the state coffers.
2. What is the ratio of income between the nation's 90th percentile and the nation's 99th percentile income earners?
    Quite small. Communities aid each other and themselves, and so wealth is naturally redistributed.
3. What is the ratio of wealth between the nation's 10th percentile and the nation's 90th percentile of households?
    Somewhat large, but the government has been coaxing people to be more content and more charitable, hopefully lessening the gap between household wealth.
4. What is the ratio of wealth between the nation's 90th percentile and the nation's 99th percentile of households?
    Very small. As persons often aid each other in their community, more people are housed but to a lower standard than in some counties.
5. Are basic necessities, such as food, shelter, clothing, etc. affordable for most people in your nation?
    Yes, they are. Government-owned corporations have somewhat of a monopoly in selling such things, and prices are always kept affordable. Town markets are popular as well, and prices are almost always fair.
6. What is the poverty rate in your nation?
    Roughly 3%
Any other notes?
    The King himself and his household isn’t very grand and has kept a sensible amount of personal wealth. There are no great palaces, except one in the capital and even that isn’t up to the scale of many Christian rulers’ palaces.
Economic Opportunity Subscore
1. Are people able to enter any career, sector of the workforce, etc. regardless of what class they were born into?
    Yes.
2. Are people able to move up in socioeconomic status, whether by advancement of employment or entrepreneurship?

3. Are businesses allowed to function without being impeded by government oversight?
    No. Businesses are ultimately subservient to the government’s regulations and oversight.
4. Are private businesses allowed to exist?
    Yes.
5. Is education able to be obtained by all people regardless of social class? Is there assistance for the economically disadvantaged in order to obtain education?

Any other notes?
    The state follows and uses the doctrine of Rhine capitalism.
Political Freedom Score
1. Are people able to openly criticize the government without fear of imprisonment or violence?
    Yes.
2. Is the freedom of speech recognized and protected?
    On paper, yes. Those who divert from what is considered “acceptable” can be punished. Overly blasphemous speech, and speech that upsets society isn’t protected. Some Islamic imams and Christian priests have been punished because of their speech.
3. Is the freedom of assembly recognized and protected?
    Mostly. The government does break up gatherings in favour of Abrahamist terrorism and societal upheaval, and some public religious gatherings. People have been arrested because of their participation in said gatherings.
4. Is the media able to exist without government interference? Can the media (truthfully) cover negative aspects of the government without fear of retribution?
    Mostly. The government censors “dangerous” foreign media, particularly Abrahamist media and the like.
5. Are there government-run media outlets?
    Yes, although they are few in number.
6. Are all people allowed to run for office unimpeded?
    Only native-born citizens of at least partial Kynish descent may run for office.
7. If there are political parties in your nation, are members of the non-majority party(-ies) able to run for office unimpeded? Are unaffiliated persons able to run for office unimpeded?
    Yes. Yes.
8. Is the leader of your nation appointed by a free, fair, and regular election?
    No. The King is chosen from the previous monarch’s progeny, and is crowned by the heathen equivalent of the Church. The eldest direct heir is the first choice, with others being less and less preferable
    The Ríkskanzler, the head of government, is elected every five years in elections held nationwide.
9. Is the legislature of your nation appointed by a free, fair, and regular election?
    Yes.
10. Does your nation have term limits for any government offices?
    Yes. The term limit of Ríkskanzlers is three terms, Members of the Alþing may only have five terms holding a seat.
Any other notes?
    The King cannot dissolve the Alþing, and is oftentimes subservient to it.
Immigration Opportunity Score
1. Is there a legal immigration process in your nation?
    Yes.
2. Are people allowed to legally immigrate to your nation?
    Yes.
3. If there is a legal immigration process in your nation, how are people who do not follow it, yet take residence in your nation, handled by the government?
    They are deported to whatever country would take them, and if no one will, we send them out into the ocean on cheap boats to find their own way. We do not send any to our Nordic brethren, as we believe they’re overrun as is.
4. Is immigration restricted based on national origin?
    Yes. Immigration from the Middle East (excluding Israel and Turkey), Pakistan, North Africa and really Africa in general is restricted if not banned.
5. Is immigration restricted based on race?
    Not officially, no.
6. Is immigration restricted based on gender?
    No.

    No.

    No.
11. What is your society's views on immigrants?
    It depends upon their origin, but most are treated with hospitality. A few are openly hostile, but this is discouraged.
Any other notes?
    Muslims are the most likely to be rejected in the immigration process.
Cultural Integrity Score
1. Are people in your nation free to partake in any religion (or lack thereof) they choose?
    Legally, yes. Heathens of the Kynish variety are preferred overall, but Abrahamists and others may practice their religions within the extent of the law. Atheists and so on are not forced into religion or particularly ostracised, but Kynish who are almost purely of Kynish descent are considered by some to be “ungrateful” because their ancestors fought for their faith and culture free from foreign domination. Those willingly convert to Christianity, Islam or another Abrahamist religion are ostracised and treated unkindly by society.
2. Are people in your nation free to partake in culturally relevant ceremonies?
    Yes. However, some religious groups considered to be dangerous by the state are monitored. This includes some Abrahamist denominations and branches, particularly Muslims and Baptists.
3. Are people in your nation free to wear culturally appropriate dress?
    No. Garments that are particularly Abrahamist are banned, as is Abrahamist-influenced attire like kaftans and so on.
4. Are people in your nation free to form culturally cohesive organisations?
    On paper, yes. However, these organisations aren’t often given much attention and the attention they do get isn’t always positive.
5. Are people in your nation free to speak and teach another language other than the official language or lingua franca?
    Yes. However, all educational institutions must teach Kynish first and foremost. Latin isn’t well-liked, though, because of its use by Catholics. The same goes for Arabic.
6. Are people in your nation allowed to have a cultural identity separate from their national identity?
    Not really, no. Cultural enclaves are broken up and assimilated by the indigenous culture and race. Christian and Muslim enclaves don’t get much protection, and civilian-made defence groups are convicted more often than heathen agitators.
7. What is your society's views on different cultures?
    It is case-by-case. Some cultures are viewed with indifference, and rarely proper respect. The East Asians are the most respected foreign cultures, whilst Islamic cultures are treated almost with hostility. Fellow Nordic cultures are respected, but most believe they ca so better by dropping Abrahamism and embracing heathenry. Wasteful, decadent cultures like Angloamerican, British and much of the Anglosphere aren’t respected and even insulted because of their nature.
Any other notes?
    The government is actively trying to stamp out foreign influences, particularly focusing on Christian and Islamic influences. Those attempting to change the native culture by encouraging things such as SJW liberalism or widespread Abrahamist conversion can find the law not on their side.
Non-Resident Score
1. Are tourists allowed in your nation?
    Yes. Tourists from all countries except those classified as “high risk” are allowed within Kyneland. However, tourists may not go into particularly sacred and ancestral places. Tourists are gifted leaflets and pamphlets detailing the dos and don’ts in Kyneland, translated into all major European and Asian languages. Other protocols are in place for the mutual benefit of both natives and tourists, ensuring their stay is free of problems or embarrassments.
2. Are non-citizens allowed in your nation on business?
    Yes. They’re given cultural pamphlets and some other things to help their time in the country is sensible and unproblematic.
3. Are non-citizens allowed in your nation to visit family?
    Yes. Any person with at least one grandparent or parent born in or is from Kyneland may apply for citizenship, as well.
4. Are non-immigrant visitors in your nation treated differently based on their lack of citizenship?
    For the most part, no. We try to keep a level of hospitality for visitors.
Any other notes?
    In order to become a citizen without any Kynish relations, one must live in the country for four consistent years, speak Kynish at a least at the conversational level, and must score high enough on texts regarding Kynish culture, conduct, religion and history.

6. What is the poverty rate in your nation?
As we do not use money and do not quantify the social process in financial terms, we cannot define a "poverty" threshold. However, all individuals are fed, clothed and housed by the state or their commune, for free.

Racial Equality Score
1. Are there laws that prevent public employment discrimination against people based on race? Are these laws actively enforced?
No such laws exist, there is no need. The Noctish State exists to serve the interests of the Noctish people above all.
2. Are there laws that prevent private employment discrimination against people based on race? Are these laws actively enforced?
See above.
3. Are there laws that prevent housing discrimination against people based on race? Are these laws actively enforced?
See above.
4. Are there laws that prevent education discrimination against people based on race? Are these laws actively enforced?
See above.
5. Are there laws that prevent public accommodation discrimination against people based on race? Are these laws actively enforced?
No. Private businesses have the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason.
6. Are there laws that prevent discrimination in issuing marriage licenses or approving adoption based on race? Are these laws actively enforced?
No. Non-Nocts are actively prohibited from adopting Noctish children, and the state issues 'marriage licenses' based on several factors, including the suitability of the two spouses.
7. Is your society tolerant of people of different races?
Mostly. As long as subject races do not go against the Noctish State they are, for the most part, ignored. Those that do are dealt with harshly, and those that aim to assimilate into Noctish society tend to be welcomed.
8. Are violent crimes that are proven to be racially motivated charged as hate crimes?
No. All crimes are ultimately motivated by hate, so it makes little sense to distinguish some crimes under this label.
9. Do people of different races earn equal wages for equal work? Is this enforced?
Wage laws do not distinguish based on race.

No such laws exist.
6. Are there laws that prevent discrimination in issuing marriage licenses or approving adoption based on gender or marital status? Are these laws actively enforced?
Only married couples may adopt children.
7. Does your society view men and women as equal?
Yes; both possess equal rights and equal responsibilities within Noctish society.
8. Are violent crimes that are proven to be motivated by gender charged as hate crimes?
No.
9. Do men and women earn equal wages for equal work? Is this enforced?
Wage laws do not distinguish between the sexes.

No.
2. Are there laws that prevent private employment discrimination against people based on disability? Are these laws actively enforced?
No.

4. Are there laws that prevent education discrimination against people based on disability? Are these laws actively enforced?
Yes. See above except in relation to education discrimination.
5. Are there laws that prevent public accommodation discrimination against people based on disability? Are these laws actively enforced?
No, though there is a heavy social stigma against refusing service to a veteran.
6. Are there laws that prevent discrimination in issuing marriage licenses or approving adoption based on disability? Are these laws actively enforced?
No. Certain classes of disability (mostly mental) are barred from pursuing marriage licenses and from adoption.
7. Does your society provide assistance to those who are disabled and unable to work?
Depends on the disability. Those rendered disabled due to work injury or combat injury are given a state pension, and are aided by the state in finding more suitable work. Those unfortunate enough to be born with a disability, or to somehow acquire a mental disability outside the scope of work and war are afforded no such luck.
8. Are violent crimes that are proven to be motivated by disability charged as hate crimes?
No.
9. Do disabled and able-bodied people earn equal wages for equal work? Is this enforced?
That would depend on the type of disability and type of work. It would make no sense to pay two people the same wage when one of them only does half the work as the other, now wouldn't it?

LGBTQ Equality Score
Sexuality Subscore
1. Are there laws that prevent public employment discrimination against people based on sexual orientation? Are these laws actively enforced?
No. Public authorities actively refuse to hire anyone of non-heterosexual or non-asexual orientation.
2. Are there laws that prevent private employment discrimination against people based on sexual orientation? Are these laws actively enforced?
No such laws exist.

5. Are there laws that prevent public accommodation discrimination against people based on sexual orientation? Are these laws actively enforced?
No such laws exist.
6. Are there laws that prevent discrimination in issuing marriage licenses or approving adoption based on sexual orientation? Are these laws actively enforced?
Non-heterosexuals and non-asexuals are not granted marriage licenses at all. Those of suspect sexual persuasions are not permitted to adopt.
7. Are non-heterosexual marriages legally recognized?
No.
8. Is polygyny legally recognized? Is polyandry legally recognized? Is plural marriage, regardless of the gender of each spouse, recognized?
Both Polygyny and Polyandry are legally recognized, although Polygyny is far more widely practiced than Polyandry.
9. Does your society view heterosexual and non-heterosexual people as equal?
No. Heterosexuals and Asexuals are considered equal, while all other sexualities are seen as deviant and mentally degenerative, such that people of those persuasions are deemed incapable of rational, proper behaviour. People that embrace such perversions are seen as little more than social pests that society should actively seek to eliminate (either through reforming these individuals into living a proper life or through less savory means).
10. Are any major predominant religions in your nation exclusive towards non-heterosexual people?
All of them.
11. Are violent crimes that are proven to be motivated by sexual orientation charged as hate crimes?
No.
12. Do heterosexual and non-heterosexual people earn equal wages for equal work? Is this enforced?
Wage laws do not distinguish between such matters, though it is perfectly acceptable for businesses to fire people based on their perversions.
Any other notes?
Excessive and misplaced perverseness is treated as a mental disorder.
Gender Identity Subscore
1. Are there laws that prevent public employment discrimination against people based on gender identity? Are these laws actively enforced?
"Gender Identity" is a silly concept that has no recognition in Noctish law. To not recognize reality, to believe that some drugs, medical procedures, and that yelling at people enough makes someone into something they are not is pure irrationality.
2. Are there laws that prevent private employment discrimination against people based on gender identity? Are these laws actively enforced?
See above.
3. Are there laws that prevent housing discrimination against people based on gender identity? Are these laws actively enforced?
See above.
4. Are there laws that prevent education discrimination against people based on gender identity? Are these laws actively enforced?
See above.
5. Are there laws that prevent public accommodation discrimination against people based on gender identity? Are these laws actively enforced?
See above.
6. Are there laws that prevent discrimination in issuing marriage licenses or approving adoption based on gender identity? Are these laws actively enforced?
See above.
7. Does your society view cisgender and transgender people as equal?
Absolutely not. The former are rational, the latter are irrational. It would be pure folly to treat the rational as equivalent to the irrational. It is of little consequence, as such irrationality is only ever present in foreigners anyway. Transgenderism is viewed as a mental disorder that ought to be eliminated.
8. Is there legal recognition of transgender people's gender identity? Is there legal recognition of nonbinary identities?
No, and no.
9. Can transgender people marry? Is this affected by same-sex marriage laws?
No.
10. Are nonbinary people seen as legitimate in your society?
No.
11. Are any major predominant religions in your nation exclusive towards transgender people?
All of them.
12. Are violent crimes that are proven to be motivated by gender identity charged as hate crimes?
No.
13. Do cisgender and transgender people earn equal pay for equal work? Is this enforced?
Wage laws do not deal with such issues.
Any other notes?
Such people, if they do turn up in the Realm, are typically sequestered from society in mental institutions, where all provisions necessary are made to return them back to a healthy, rational state of mind. Those that refuse are terminated.

4. Are private businesses allowed to exist?
Yes.
5. Is education able to be obtained by all people regardless of social class? Is there assistance for the economically disadvantaged in order to obtain education?

10. Does your nation have term limits for any government offices?

Immigration Opportunity Score
1. Is there a legal immigration process in your nation?
Yes.
2. Are people allowed to legally immigrate to your nation?
Yes.
3. If there is a legal immigration process in your nation, how are people who do not follow it, yet take residence in your nation, handled by the government?
Illegal immigrants are either deported forcefully - oftentimes this involves sailing them out to the Rusinian Sea and leaving them stranded on a piece of wood - or they are imprisoned by the state in one of the many, many prison labour camps reformation centers spread throughout the nation.
4. Is immigration restricted based on national origin?
Immigration from certian nations hostile to the Noctish Realm is restricted.
5. Is immigration restricted based on race?

Yes. The Noctish Realm has no need for the unproductive and the irrational.
8. Is immigration restricted based on ability?
Yes.
9. Is immigration restricted based on education?
Yes. Those that seek to come here must have some education or some ability that the nation needs, and while education for Noctish subjects is subsidized by the government, the same is not true for foreign students.
10. Is immigration restricted based on profession?
No.
11. What is your society's views on immigrants?
Only the skilled, educated, and rational should be taken, such that they can be molded into citizens of the Noctish state. The Noctish Realm has no need for the weak, feeble-minded, poor, uneducated and unskilled, thus such people have no place in our Realm.
Any other notes?
Illegal immigrants are not legally recognized in the Noctish Realm, and thus receive absolutely no legal protections. It is thus perfectly legal to kill, maim, torture, and enslave illegals.

Economic Score
Economic Parity Subscore
1. What is the ratio of income between the nation's 10th percentile and the nation's 90th percentile income earners?
1.35
2. What is the ratio of income between the nation's 90th percentile and the nation's 99th percentile income earners?
1.04
3. What is the ratio of wealth between the nation's 10th percentile and the nation's 90th percentile of households?
1.21
4. What is the ratio of wealth between the nation's 90th percentile and the nation's 99th percentile of households?
1.09
5. Are basic necessities, such as food, shelter, clothing, etc. affordable for most people in your nation?
Almost all necessities are free.
6. What is the poverty rate in your nation?
Negligible.
Any other notes?
Money and income's influence has been greatly reduced in Northwestern society. Most products are not commodities for exchange but rather produced in a free association (without use of money), but seeing as it is impossible for a completely communist free association in a region where capitalism still exists, there is still commodity production, exchange, and money.
TL;DR: Income has a very small influence on societal standing.
Economic Opportunity Subscore
1. Are people able to enter any career, sector of the workforce, etc. regardless of what class they were born into?
Yes.
2. Are people able to move up in socioeconomic status, whether by advancement of employment or entrepreneurship?
By working harder, yes, but there is no such thing as "entrepreneurship" or the like seeing as capitalism is being swept away.
3. Are businesses allowed to function without being impeded by government oversight?
Not in the slightest.
4. Are private businesses allowed to exist?
Not really.
There is a small private economy (practically negligable), and it is recognized by the State. Those that own private property cannot obtain citizenship. This is only until capitalism has been fully abolished, and property as a concept has been abolished.
5. Is education able to be obtained by all people regardless of social class? Is there assistance for the economically disadvantaged in order to obtain education?
Yes.
Any other notes?
Income is based on the amount and difficulty of labor. So, if I were to work all day on a fishing boat, I would be payed more than if I made tie-die shirts for twenty minutes. Employment has mainly (but not entirely) been abolished to where there is practically no division of labor. Sure, those near the Great Lakes are more likely to fish frequently than one in the Western Plains, but this is not due to an enforced division of labor.
TL;DR: Income is directly meritocratic for all citizens. Division of labor is almost entirely absent.
Political Freedom Score
1. Are people able to openly criticize the government without fear of imprisonment or violence?
Yes, except for those supporting capitalism.
2. Is the freedom of speech recognized and protected?
See above.
3. Is the freedom of assembly recognized and protected?
See above.
4. Is the media able to exist without government interference? Can the media (truthfully) cover negative aspects of the government without fear of retribution?
No.
Media is not controlled directly by the State, it is controlled by journalists, but the State has the right to censor media for political reasons.
5. Are there government-run media outlets?
All media outlets are controlled by the journalists that work for them, but the State owns the means of communication and production that are used by the journalists.
6. Are all people allowed to run for office unimpeded?
All Citizens are. Non-Citizens cannot.
7. If there are political parties in your nation, are members of the non-majority party(-ies) able to run for office unimpeded? Are unaffiliated persons able to run for office unimpeded?
Political parties have no official involvement in the election process, so yes I guess.
8. Is the leader of your nation appointed by a free, fair, and regular election?
Yes. Once a year.
9. Is the legislature of your nation appointed by a free, fair, and regular election?
Yes. They are directly bound to their constituents and instantly recallable.
10. Does your nation have term limits for any government offices?
No.
Any other notes?
It may be confusing, so think of it like this:
FAR-LEFT|------------------------|CENTER|------------------------|FAR-RIGHT
Anyone in the green can speak without fear. Anyone in the yellow is teetering the line. Anyone in red would likely have Citizenship revoked. Anyone in black would be executed.
You could speak against the state and say that: "I think that we should do x to get to communism, not y."
However, you could not say: "I think that we should do x to reinstate capitalism."
TL;DR: Free speech only for socialists.
Immigration Opportunity Score
1. Is there a legal immigration process in your nation?
Yes.
2. Are people allowed to legally immigrate to your nation?
Yes.
3. If there is a legal immigration process in your nation, how are people who do not follow it, yet take residence in your nation, handled by the government?
It is very rare for this to happen because immigration is very unregulated, but they would likely get away scot-free. Even anti-communists would be allowed to stay, they just would not be able to acquire Citizenship. Deportations are practically non-existent.
4. Is immigration restricted based on national origin?
Nope.
5. Is immigration restricted based on race?
Nope.
6. Is immigration restricted based on gender?
Nope.
7. Is immigration restricted based on LGBTQ status?
Queer folks are more likely to get in seeing as most other nations in Amaria are queerphobic.
So, yes, but in favor of the oppressed groups to promote equality.
8. Is immigration restricted based on ability?
Nope.
9. Is immigration restricted based on education?
Nope.
10. Is immigration restricted based on profession?
Nope.
11. What is your society's views on immigrants?
They are generally viewed as equals and are rarely discriminated against. They have the same rights and are equally eligible for Citizenship.
Any other notes?
There are practically open borders for immigration, but emigration is a different story. Emigration is more regulated to prevent counter-revolutionaries from fleeing and organizing. Citizens convicted of illegal emigration will have Citizenship revoked. Those who are not Citizens and attempt to leave illegally will be classified as émigrés, which is more serious.
Citizen ---> Noncitizen ---> Émigré.
Cultural Integrity Score
1. Are people in your nation free to partake in any religion (or lack thereof) they choose?
Yes, but it is discouraged and religious organizations that partake in discriminatory practice are required to cease those practices or be shut-down.
2. Are people in your nation free to partake in culturally relevant ceremonies?
Yes, assuming they are not harming others and they are consensual.
3. Are people in your nation free to wear culturally appropriate dress?
Yes.
4. Are people in your nation free to form culturally cohesive organizations?
Yes.
5. Are people in your nation free to speak and teach another language other than the official language or lingua franca?
Yes. There is no official language.
6. Are people in your nation allowed to have a cultural identity separate from their national identity?
Yes.
7. What is your society's views on different cultures?
Old Northwest is viewed as a melting pot of cultures. Northwesterners are also taught from an early age that nations are concepts (and not objective).
Any other notes?
Amarians (the indigenous group of Amaria, the region Old Northwest is in) consider Old Northwest to be very inclusive to them, which is rare. Most other nations in Amaria are more hostile, barring Abramville, which is an extremely small nation.
Non-Resident Score
1. Are tourists allowed in your nation?
Kinda. They are, but we discourage it.
2. Are non-citizens allowed in your nation on business?
Not usually.
3. Are non-citizens allowed in your nation to visit family?
Yes, unless they were émigrés.
4. Are non-immigrant visitors in your nation treated differently based on their lack of citizenship?
Sometimes, but not often.
Any other notes?
Not really.
TL;DR: THERE IS EXTREME CIVIL EQUALITY, BUT IT IS VIOLENTLY ENFORCED.

Any other notes?
Libel, slander, and hate speech laws exist and are strongly enforced in public speech. So, you can say what you like, as long as it's A) truthful and B) not inciting hate/violence towards others. As such, advocating belief systems like fascism and Nazism is strictly against the law.

Any other notes? Vedastia is mostly composed of settlers from the British Isles and British North America, who started arriving in the 17th century & increased their numbers massively starting in the late 18th century, and Spaniards, who arrived during the 16th century. Aboriginal Vedasters, who are also descended from Europeans, have been native to Vedastia since at least the 12th century.

Issues regarding race and ethnicity haven't really been prevalent since Vedastia's independence from Sbemailzille in 1963 until recently, when immigration from Sbemailzille took an uptick.

Federal suffrage (some cantons have less restrictive suffrage policies) is eligible to those known as "citizens" who are natural-born Vedastian subjects 25 years or older who own their own place of residence, do not receive government benefits, pay a 15% income tax, and can pass a basic civics examination, or are over the age of 16 and have performed military service for a period of five years, which waives all other requirements, including being born a natural-born subject. This is the only way for naturalized subjects to vote in Vedastian elections. Members of the Senate, the upper house of Parliament, are chosen by the cantonal assemblies in staggered terms of four years.
10. Does your nation have term limits for any government offices? Members of the Chamber of Deputies can serve a maximum of four two-year terms, and Senators can serve a maximum of two four-year terms. Cantonal offices have differing term limits.

Racial Equality Score
1. Are there laws that prevent public employment discrimination against people based on race? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes, the Ruvian constitution prevents the government from discrimination based on race.
2. Are there laws that prevent private employment discrimination against people based on race? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes, national legislation prevents employers from discrimination based on race.
3. Are there laws that prevent housing discrimination against people based on race? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes, housing discrimination is illegal in Ru, and if it's found out, these laws will be enforced. However, studies have shown that it still exists
4. Are there laws that prevent education discrimination against people based on race? Are these laws actively enforced? raced based discrimination in education is illegal, though studies have found that schools in lower income or minority dominated areas often do not have the same quality of facilities as those in affluent, Drailen majority areas.
5. Are there laws that prevent public accommodation discrimination against people based on race? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes, the constitution prohibits the state from discriminating based on race.
6. Are there laws that prevent discrimination in issuing marriage licenses or approving adoption based on race? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes, supreme court decisions have found such discrimination unconstitutional.
7. Is your society tolerant of people of different races? Generally yes. Ru has been a melting pot nation since it's ancient past, and ancient Ru's rigid caste system was more centered around social class, and was pretty much race blind. Though the majority of the servant classes were made up of non native, non Drailen, as the empire expanded and conquered foreign lands the former rulers of those lands were offered Ruvian noble titles, creating members of minority races with very high social standing in Ru. Modern Ruvians are therefore quite used to living in a diverse society, and are generally tolerant. though biases and discrimination still exists among some.
8. Are violent crimes that are proven to be racially motivated charged as hate crimes? Yes, racial motivation is an automatic aggravating factor, and the national government has the option of taking over the prosecution, rather then leaving it to the local courts.
9. Do people of different races earn equal wages for equal work? Is this enforced? Yes
Any other notes?
Gender Equality Score
1. Are there laws that prevent public employment discrimination against people based on gender? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes, a supreme court decision has found such discrimination unconstitutional
2. Are there laws that prevent private employment discrimination against people based on gender? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes, national legislation prevents employers from discrimination based on gender.
3. Are there laws that prevent housing discrimination against people based on gender? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes
4. Are there laws that prevent education discrimination against people based on gender? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes
5. Are there laws that prevent public accommodation discrimination against people based on gender? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes
6. Are there laws that prevent discrimination in issuing marriage licenses or approving adoption based on gender or marital status? Are these laws actively enforced? There is not yet a law preventing discrimination based on approving adoption based on marital status. Otherwise, Yes.
7. Does your society view men and women as equal? Ru traditional views on gender roles still persist in Ru. However, today the idea that the genders should be viewed and treated equally are gaining wide acceptance, and views on gender are generally becoming more open and inclusive.
8. Are violent crimes that are proven to be motivated by gender charged as hate crimes? Yes, see race
9. Do men and women earn equal wages for equal work? Is this enforced? Yes, there is national law that prevents this. There remains a gender pay gap despite this, mostly because a greater percentage of women are occupying lower paying jobs then men. It is seen as perhaps a wider societal problem rather then conscious, direct discrimination.
Any other notes? Ancient Ru was an extremely patriarchal society. It has become progressively more egalitarian over the centuries, and steam has especially picked up in the last couple decades on this. Things are much better, though many on the left still consider Ruvian society to be quite patriarchal.
Disability Score
1. Are there laws that prevent public employment discrimination against people based on disability? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes, there is a national law preventing employers from discriminating against people with disabilities. It is made to provide the same protections as previous passed legislation that prevented discrimination based on race.
2. Are there laws that prevent private employment discrimination against people based on disability? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes, see above
3. Are there laws that prevent housing discrimination against people based on disability? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes, see above
4. Are there laws that prevent education discrimination against people based on disability? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes, see above
5. Are there laws that prevent public accommodation discrimination against people based on disability? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes, see above
6. Are there laws that prevent discrimination in issuing marriage licenses or approving adoption based on disability? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes to marriage, licenses. The government has issued a report showing that adoptions are more difficult for people with disabilities due to age old biases, but resources have been provided to give prospective disabled adoptive parents needed support and information
7. Does your society provide assistance to those who are disabled and unable to work? Yes
8. Are violent crimes that are proven to be motivated by disability charged as hate crimes? Yes, see race and gender
9. Do disabled and able-bodied people earn equal wages for equal work? Is this enforced? Similar to gender, this is technically not allowed, though there remains a not insignificant pay gap between disabled and able bodied people.
Any other notes?
LGBTQ Equality Score
Sexuality Subscore
1. Are there laws that prevent public employment discrimination against people based on sexual orientation? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes, a supreme court decision found that just like race and gender, discrimination by the state based on sexual orientation is unconstitutional.
2. Are there laws that prevent private employment discrimination against people based on sexual orientation? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes, a national royal agency interpreted the law preventing race and gender discrimination to include sexual orientation as well, this ruling has been upheld by the courts. This is a relatively new idea, but the courts have been consistent
3. Are there laws that prevent housing discrimination against people based on sexual orientation? Are these laws actively enforced? Similar to above, a national royal court has ruled that current housing discrimination laws apply to sexual orientation as well. This was very recent, and a first. Time will tell if other courts, including the supreme court, follow suit.
4. Are there laws that prevent education discrimination against people based on sexual orientation? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes for all public schools, most private universities implement policies preventing this on their own, but there is no national law mandating it at this time.
5. Are there laws that prevent public accommodation discrimination against people based on sexual orientation? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes, according to the supreme court, the constitution demands it.
6. Are there laws that prevent discrimination in issuing marriage licenses or approving adoption based on sexual orientation? Are these laws actively enforced? The Ruvian Supreme court ruled that marriage laws that discriminate based on sexual orientation are unconstitutional. Likewise, public adoptions can not be discriminatory either. Private centers are allowed their own requirements.
7. Are non-heterosexual marriages legally recognized? Yes, see above.
8. Is polygyny legally recognized? Is polyandry legally recognized? Is plural marriage, regardless of the gender of each spouse, recognized? No, in all three cases.
9. Does your society view heterosexual and non-heterosexual people as equal? This is a pretty new idea in Ru, but in the past few years there has been tremendous progress in Ruvian society in this regard. Positive media portrayals, supreme court decisions, and recent legislation have seen a huge shift toward homosexuality becoming more accepted among the general population in the last few years. Though in more rural regions attitudes remain quite different.
10. Are any major predominant religions in your nation exclusive towards non-heterosexual people? The Caellian Faith is the predominate religion in Ru, and this varies depending on the denomination: The High Priest of Traditionalist Caellianism (of which the royal family officially belongs) recently wrote an official religious treatise that said that homosexuality should no longer be seen as a sin or a vice, due to "overwhelming" evidence that sexuality is genetic, rather then a lifestyle choice, and it can not truly be changed or reformed. And also noting that the Sacred Texts never actually mention homosexuality directly. Therefore, the temples and priests have become quite tolerant. Original Reformist Caellianism has taken a similarly tolerant view. However, Fundamental Reformist Caellianism (and it's various branches) and Tollorani Reformist Caellianism retain a discriminatory view on homosexuality.
11. Are violent crimes that are proven to be motivated by sexual orientation charged as hate crimes? Yes, see race and gender
12. Do heterosexual and non-heterosexual people earn equal wages for equal work? Is this enforced? There is a pay gap between homosexual and heterosexual men, though this does not seem to be the case when it comes to women with most studies showing no statistical difference, and in some studies it was shown that lesbians actually earn more then their heterosexual counterparts.
Any other notes? Ancient Ru saw homosexuality as a flaw or vice, and irreligious to boot, but was never made strictly illegal in Ruvian history. However, being openly gay was something that was unheard of in ancient Ruvian society. Often with prominent figures it would be a case of "the worst kept secret" a certain knight, noble, or king's preferences for the same gender being widely known, not denied or particularly well hidden
, but never admitted to either. Modern Ru is now very tolerant of different sexualities, but this has been a very recent trend, and there is still new ground to cover in legislation, constitutional interpretation, and societal biases.

Gender Identity Subscore
1. Are there laws that prevent public employment discrimination against people based on gender identity? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes, by agency interpretation of existing legislation, see sexual orientation above
2. Are there laws that prevent private employment discrimination against people based on gender identity? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes, court rulings have supported the interpretation above.
3. Are there laws that prevent housing discrimination against people based on gender identity? Are these laws actively enforced? Not currently, but based on court rulings treating gender identity similarly to sexual orientation in regards to employment discrimination, it is assumed that a court ruling against this type of discrimination nay be forthcoming
4. Are there laws that prevent education discrimination against people based on gender identity? Are these laws actively enforced? Agency interpretation of legislation against discrimination based on sexual orientation in public education institutions, or educational institutions that receive national government funding has ruled that it applies to gender identity as well.
5. Are there laws that prevent public accommodation discrimination against people based on gender identity? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes, see above
6. Are there laws that prevent discrimination in issuing marriage licenses or approving adoption based on gender identity? Are these laws actively enforced? See sexuality: The supreme court decision legalizing gay marriage meant that any laws placing marriage restrictions based on the gender of either partner is not constitutional. See sexual orientation for adoption.
7. Does your society view cisgender and transgender people as equal? Somewhat: transgender issues and challenges to the gender binary are extremely new ideas in Ru. There is a general desire to be tolerant and kind, but gender identity remains something that most Ruvians can have difficulty wrapping their head around in a way where they are not being discriminatory, either purposefully or inadvertently.
8. Is there legal recognition of transgender people's gender identity? Is there legal recognition of nonbinary identities? Passports: The royal state department has ruled that gender may be changed with a physician's statement. There has been a court ruling that says the department's failure to provide a nonbinary option is in violation of Ruvian law, and ordering a correction. Driver's licenses/ID cards: gender can be changed with a physician's statement. Several provinces allow a nonbinary option on their licenses as well. Birth Certificates: It is generally more difficult to change the gender on a birth certificate then passports or driver's licenses. However, it can still be changed with proof of sex reassignment surgery. Several provinces have a nonbinary option on their birth certificates.
9. Can transgender people marry? Is this affected by same-sex marriage laws? The supreme court's ruling that laws against same-sex marriage are unconstitutional stated that laws discriminating based on the gender of either partner violated the ruvian constitution, meaning that transgender people are included in this.
10. Are nonbinary people seen as legitimate in your society? Somewhat: this is a very new idea, progress has been made in a few provinces (see above). But generally the average Ruvian has a hard time understanding gender identity outside of the gender binary, even more so then with the notion of gender identity. There is a desire amongst most Ruvians to be tolerant and kind, and regard people how they wish to be regarded, but many can't help but feel it's all a little "silly"
11. Are any major predominant religions in your nation exclusive towards transgender people? The Caellian Faith does not officially acknowledge gender dysphoria or gender as not binary currently, but denominations, (the highly centrally structured Traditionalist Caellianism in particular) have adjusted their views in the face of new scientific knowledge in the past. (see sexual orientation.) The evidence for both seems strong, so a similar tolerant attitude that exists towards homosexuals is expected in the not too distant future, as the rationale for doing so will be similar if the Faith accepts these scientific findings.
12. Are violent crimes that are proven to be motivated by gender identity charged as hate crimes? Yes, see race and gender
13. Do cisgender and transgender people earn equal pay for equal work? Is this enforced? studies suggest that there is a wage gap between cis and transgender workers, and perhaps even that which gender one transitions to could affect wages (with trans women seeing a pay decrease after their transition, and trans men seeing a pay increase
Any other notes? These issues are extremely new to Ru, particularly ideas about the gender binary. It seems as though things are trending toward improvement as these issues become more well known, though societal understanding seems to be lagging behind a desire for legal equality by a large measure.

2. Are people allowed to legally immigrate to your nation? Yes
3. If there is a legal immigration process in your nation, how are people who do not follow it, yet take residence in your nation, handled by the government? The Ruvian government has implemented programs for those who have done this to have their illegal entry into Ru forgiven and legal citizenship obtained after the fact. Deportation is possible for those who don't take advantage of such opportunities and are discovered.
4. Is immigration restricted based on national origin? For the most part, no. Higher scrutiny may be used for certain national origins for security purposes, but it is never shut down completely.
5. Is immigration restricted based on race? No
6. Is immigration restricted based on gender? No
7. Is immigration restricted based on LGBTQ status? No
8. Is immigration restricted based on ability? No
9. Is immigration restricted based on education? No

11. What is your society's views on immigrants? Immigrants have been pouring into Ru through various means since ancient times. Most Ruvians remind themselves of this history and the longstanding diversity of the nation and show patience and tolerance for immigrants. Others become frustrated or fearful, and have more discriminatory attitudes. Immigration is a major issue in today's ruvian politics, and can get quite contentious.

3. Are people in your nation free to wear culturally appropriate dress? Yes

5. Are people in your nation free to speak and teach another language other than the official language or lingua franca? Yes
6. Are people in your nation allowed to have a cultural identity separate from their national identity? Yes, though the majority of Ruvians expect Ru to be at least part of this identity. i.e. American-Ruvian, Mexican-Ruvian, etc. complete separation would likely be viewed as insulting)
7. What is your society's views on different cultures? Ruvian society is a cultural sponge, eagerly incorporating different cultures and cultural ideas and traditions into the Ruvian identity. This has been the case since ancient times. Ruvians are generally proud of their diversity, and generally tolerant and curious about new cultures, so long as there is a desire to be inclusive towards Ruvians.
