It's very likely that they consider murder to be a form of immorality. In addition, Nova seems to be a Christian state, and there's a school of thought in some religious circles that immorality, as a crime against God, is worse than murder, a crime against man - which is why the former gets you punished eternally, whilst the latter causes you to be punished only the material world. Of course I can't speak for Nova, but this is a real position that some religious people hold, especially those in strongly theocratic states.

6. In what year was capital punishment abolished (if applicable)? N/A
7. In what year was the most recent execution? This year!

9. Which year had the most executions? In 1968, the first year of our fourth Commandant Generalissimo, Cortez "the Killer", there were approximately 150 executions, not counting the ones the state kept a secret from the public, which were never counted (obviously).

6. Can people under 18 be executed? Yes, but people under 16 can't.
7. Can people over 65 be executed? That's the majority age of people executed, so, yeah.

[] Hydrogen cyanide
[] Carbon monoxide
[] Carbon dioxide
[] Nitrogen
[] Other:

2. Can prisoners choose the method of execution? Yes.
2a. If yes, which method of execution is the most popular? The electric chair, mainly because we have a lot of political prisoners and one of our most popular folk songs is about being sentenced to death by it for a governmental crime.

D. PROTOCOL AND PROCEDURES

1. While waiting for execution, are prisoners kept in custody? Yes.
1a. What are conditions like in death row (if applicable)? Filthy, cramped, full of vermin (vaccinated by our top exterminators to keep inmates from dying before their time) and full of stern and unrelenting guards who can and will beat you into unconsciousness if you so much as ask for a glass of water before your last meal rolls down the hall. In other words, not much different from the suburbs.
2. Are prisoners informed of the execution date? No.
3. Are family members informed of the execution date? Yes.
4. Is the public informed of the execution date? Yes.
5. Are prisoners offered a last meal? Yes. There is only one strict ban, and that's against asking for unlimited breadsticks.

8. Who is invited to view executions? The direct family of the dying, as well as any individuals who they identified as their "best friends", a few inmates with optional death-row crimes who didn't choose to die, and the government's current five most important officers and officials, including the Commandant Generalissimo. (The CG is the only one permitted to decline the offer.)

9. Are executions reported by the media? Not really, they tend to spread by others by word of mouth.
10. Are executions broadcast on television? Aw, hell yeah.
11. Do prisoners have the opportunity to make a final statement? Usually, but not while the execution is taking place, and political prisoners are usually banned from them.
12. Who else makes statements before an execution (if applicable)? The guard who spent the most time interacting with the prisoner before their death. It's usually "she bit me on the hand and now my thumb is all purple, someone call la flegisto".
13. Are prisoners blindfolded? It's optional, but they can be, as well as gagged and hooded. This is more popular with male prisoners under 30 for some reason.
14. How are executioners selected? We have our own executioner college. While the rest are shipped out to the rest of the world for various other positions involving the taking of human lives, the class valedictorian becomes part of the government if the previous executioner hasn't quit or died. Coincidentally, our current executioner, Koralo Vasquez, is also the childhood best friend and current boyfriend of our current Minister of Defense, Valora Celeste Abaroa.
15. Do doctors or medical professionals supervise executions? Only after the dying party is considered, well, dead.

16. What happens to the bodies of executed prisoners? Usually chopped up and fed to livestock, pets, the unknowing working class or the knowing and terrible upper class, in stark contrast to the "respected" dead, who are wrapped in blankets, weighed down and hurled into the ocean.
17. Are family members required to pay for the execution? Yes.

E. PUBLIC OPINION

1. What percentage of citizens support capital punishment for these crimes?
1a. Murder: %5
1b. Rape and violent assault: We can't have accurate information for this because the majority of the public commits minor voting fraud and checks "yes" twice.
1c. Armed robbery: %10
1d. Drug trafficking: %5
1e. Drug possession: %1
1f. Gang membership: Most of our finest citizens are in gangs, idiot!
1g. Immorality: Depending on your definition of "immoral", it can either be %75 or %0.1.
2. What percentage of citizens oppose capital punishment for all crimes? Well, it used to be about %10, but, since the rulership of Cortez "the Killer", it's been rounded up to a stunning... %10.5.
3. Is capital punishment considered effective for reducing crime? Well, maybe, we aren't sure.
