Does your nation have a governent?:

Not exactly; we have a leader, but we are more an "organization" of the supranational variety, rather than a nation, so our leadership is not technically a government.

We do have a small number of client states; for the most part, the information provided is regarding our official involvement only, not that of client nation's. So if a question asks about probable cause or warrant, the answer is about our involvement, not what is required regarding client states' involvement.

Privacy in Silver Commonwealth

Postby Silver Commonwealth » Sun Jun 16, 2019 10:55 pm

Data from Ministry of Foreign and Internal Affairs


Privacy in SC



Does your nation have a government?: (stick around if it doesn’t - anarchies can still have privacy) ''Yes, of course we do. Power of government is entrenched deeply in SC, and doesn't plan to go away anytime soon. As we are a world government, we are quite decentralized, with lots of local rulers, and local armies. But while we have lots of differences, one of factors, which we have in common, is being totalitarian as hell - so it could be said, that we have multiple autocratic governments. Our presidents aren't as powerful as someone might expect, as we consist from autocratic oligarchies.''
Do your laws recognize, either by law or legal precedent, a right to privacy?: ''No, we don't have anything of that. While privacy laws might be a bit stricter in order to defend individuals from each other, there are no privacy laws for defense from government.''
Is there a right to privacy within the home?: ''Of course not. In larger houses, we usually have a full set of surveillance measures, like cameras, microphones, sensors in smoke detectors, telescreens, etc - no matter is too private for the state. Or states, rather. In rural countryside, we usually don't put all surveillance measures - usually a few microphones do the trick, and locals are good at keeping each other in check anyways. Even in recently occupied territories, we have managed to install good branches of intelligence services, and surveillance measures.''
Within one’s vehicle?: ''No, there is no privacy for that either. For example, GPS, which is built in the cars, and helps to find the correct direction through a territory, can also help government to track down the citizens.''
Are a person’s personal belongings secure from unreasonable search and seizure?: ''From individual persons, and other proles? Yes, kind of. From government agencies, and state companies? No, regional governors, and governments have every right to seize private belongings, and search the person, if they deem, that it is necessary. Public places, like swimming pools, allow search for person's personal belongings, if necessary as well.''
Is probable cause required to search a person’s vehicle without a warrant?: ''No, cars can be searched by SCPS agents, and other government agencies at any time, without a need for warrant.''
Is probable cause required to search a person’s belongings without a warrant??: ''No - just like with cars, and person's home (or apartment), warrant is not necessarily required for a search of person's belongings - albeit it can be recommended. That said, search without warrant applies only to state's sector - private persons can't enjoy this luxury. (On another note, private police departments are not allowed.)''
Is probable cause required to search a person’s home without a warrant?: ''No, not really. While probable cause would give more legitimacy to searching person's home, and shut down most of questions about it, it is possible for SCPS agents to simply break in a house during middle of night, and arrest people inside, without any search warrant, or warning before that.''
What is the definition of probable cause in your nation?:
[X] Direct knowledge of ongoing crime [X]51% or higher likelihood that evidence of crime is present? [] Something else.
What level of proof is required to get a search warrant?: ''Either very little, or none, as search warrants can be done without much evidence, and police can do it at any time, not even talking about army. In fact, some people think, that SC's authorities use search warrants to terrorize the populace,and keep it in line. Some people have also faked evidence, or blackmailed their neighbors, in order to avoid being searched themselves - SC's regional police units usually look after your loyalty.''
is a warrant required to access a person’s email or cloud service account?: ''Nope, as said before, police, army, SCPS, and other government entities can access various things without a need for a warrant, and emails, along with cloud service accounts, are no exceptions. Government can also terminate email accounts, if deemed as necessary. (For example, if person is a member of a resistance cell)''
Is a warrant required to listen in on a person’s phone calls?: ''No, we monitor the people's phone calls practically 24/7. Even if they don't call anyone, and are in a territory, where there's no internet connection/electricity, we can still detect them, as long as phone is still working, and hasn't got an empty battery. So, as you can see, we don't really need a warrant for anything like that - it is built in our police system already.''
Is a warrant required to listen in on cellphone calls?: ''See above - just like with phone calls, there is no need for a warrant for cellphone calls to. Still, only police, army, SCPS agents, government members, and other state-aligned organizations can track down, and listen to other people cellphone calls - for example, your neighbors wouldn't be allowed to trace down your calls, unless your neighbor happens to be an agent, policeman, or other important figure.''
Is a warrant required to track the location of a person’s vehicle?: ''Nope. In order to track down a location of person's vehicle, we use the GPS coordinates system, which can be either built in, or bought by a person, in order to better navigate in harsh environments. However, its purpose is also to tell the location of the user. Some radios have also built-in trackers, which can track down the car, even if GPS was turned off. SC is truly a 1984 state.''
Is a warrant required for the police to track a person’s cellphone?: ''No, not at all. Regional police departments can legally track any person's cellphone, no matter their rank, and other police officer phones themselves. Another way is by using SC's wi-fi, as it also lets to detect, where person is active. In fact, this method is around in SC's world since 1990s, and has been used pretty widely so far.''
Is it legal for a person’s parent or guardian to track their cellphone or vehicle without their consent?: ''Yes, it is. While we usually don't let individuals (Especially proles) to track down other persons, and think, that this matter should be left to the state, guardians, and parents are an exception, as they are responsive for raising up the person, so they can use any means, to prevent them going down a false path. However, such privilege usually ends, when person reaches age of 18 (maturity age can depend on region), as then person is considered as fully ready adult, and tracking down passes to state services."
Is a warrant required to track a person’s online activities?: ''No, not at all. In fact, when the first OS, and Internet variant was created in SC, it already was equipped with internet activity trackers, in order to keep up with what citizens were saying in chatrooms, and other sites, even if they were private. Over time, design has changed a bit, and more webpages have appeared, but government's tracking service has improved as well, along with various firewall systems, in order to limit information flow from other regions - it was first used, when someone posted news about bloody insurgency suppression from SC's Philippines - after that, SC's internet providers set up an ''information firewall'' across some regions, in order to prevent people in Megastates seeing the information.''
Is a warrant required to install keyloggers or other equipment on a person’s computer?: ''No, not at all - local governments, and SCPS agents can install them at whatever time they want - in fact, they often are built-in the computers during manufacturing already. In some cases, if SCPS wants to warn people, that a keylogger is installed in the system, they can do it, but in most cases, they don't do that, as it could alert possible criminals. Also, at this point, this is like an ''open secret'', as while SCPS tries to keep the existence of such things in secret, word has already spread.''
Are no-knock warrants legal? If yes, in what situations? ''Yes, they are legal. They are used in cases, when it is likely, that evidence could be destroyed during a normal warrant, or when raid is targeted against insurgent, and underground groups, or when the safety of police officers is at risk. However, a no-knock warrant can be issued for anything, and according to statistics, is very widely used in SC's regions.''
Are there state-operated CCTV systems monitoring common people in public?: ''Yes, we have those. Although almost all cameras fit in this definition, ''CCTV systems'' is mostly used for places in need of a high surveillance, like banks, stores, high-security apartments, streets, and various other public places. Those are used not only to catch criminals, but to also keep an eye on movement of the populace, in order to detect possible illegal protests early. Even in poorer regions, there are CCTV systems.''
Is it legal for police officers to surveil a person in public without a warrant?: ''Of course it is. In fact, police security cameras are already surveilling people in public places without much fuss, so we don't even consider, that it could be ''illegal'' for police to surveil a person without a warrant, but rather the opposite - we think of it as very common, and nothing out of ordinary.''
Are Internet providers required to retain clients’ internet use data?: ''Yes, they are - this mechanism was already implemented, when internet was just at its baby steps in SC, and has only been continued to be improved so far. We also fight against private internet providers, which have arisen like mushrooms after rain in territories of disputed zone, after we arrived, and due of lack of state internet providers there, use it as a chance to try to bypass giving client data to us. But there is place for only one provider, and its branches.''
If yes, for how many years?: ''Theoretically, there is no limit for how long internet providers need to retrain the client's internet usage data, and it can be retrained for any period of time - government agencies can use them to rather either blackmail, or expose possible dissenters. This system is in place in all regions. However, really old data usually gets moved to archives, which means, that they are a bit harder to access, and after person's death, data about them are more likely to be moved to the archive.''
Are citizens allowed to use strong encryption?: ''While various internet sites are required to encrypt their data, and protect them from hackers, government sites receive stronger encryption, obviously, and as for individuals themselves, strong encryption is not allowed to be used, as it would complicate the work of government's intelligence agencies - strong encryption is limited to government. While some people use encrypted messages, average person's encryption is usually pretty easy to decipher, and considered more as ''joke'' by SCPS, although some have been arrested over encrypted information.''
Are citizens allowed to use secure networking measures such as TOR or similar technologies?: ''Nope, usage of things like VPN, and TOR fly in face of the goal of SC's internet, which is supposed to only let government-approved content to pass. Punishment for such crimes can vary from fines, to imprisonment, and forced labor, and are considered on par with treason. Sometimes, SCPS uses TOR, and VPN, but only in order to access hidden parts of the internet, and in order to root out dissenter groups there.''
Are stop-and-frisk procedures legal?: ''Of course - cops have rights to stop, and search citizens at any time, if deemed necessary - that is protected by law, and proles have little voice there. During those searches, it its recommended to not resist against the cops, or soldiers, as in such cases, cops are allowed to fire back, in case, if person would be violent. Of course, abuse of police powers is also widespread, sadly. Those operations are performed not only on streets, but in public places as well, like schools, for an example.''
Are there metal detectors at the entrances of shopping malls and sporting events in your nation?: ''Yes, there are. In fact, there are more sensors than just that, along with cameras, as we think, that ''it is not enough with only metal detectors'', and we often use roentgen rays, in order to detect a things, which metal detector couldn't possibly detect, like broken bones, or a hidden weapon made out of hardened plastic, or wood. However, in some places, security measures are lower, due of them being poorer. (Former disputed zone, for an example)''
Are there state-operated microphone systems in the streets of your nation’s major cities?: ''Yes, we use microphones extensively for state surveillance. In fact, they are one of our earliest devices for such a task - more complex things like internet surveillance came later. They can be hidden at any place which is wide enough, without a need of warrant - they often are installed in apartments during building process already.''
Are drug tests required by law or regulation for regular employment in your nation? (not work in the spy services): ''Yes. We consider drugs as detrimental for the productivity of workers, so we use any means necessary. in order to improve it, and drug tests are a part of the measures, along with anti-alcoholism campaigns. Drug tests are obligatory, even in the territories, which have fallen in our control recently, although we admit, that it is harder to catch drug smugglers in Sahara, than it is in the Megastates. Either way, we don't want junkies as a workforce for any serious work, and we will usually turn them to a job like cleaning roads, or smh.''
Are drug tests required in schools?: ''Of course they are - in fact, they happen regularly, due of SC's strong anti-drug laws, despite various SC's governments dipping their beaks in the drug business during the last years. School's director, or personnel can be punished for refusing to let SCPS agents do drug tests, and by way more than just a loss of reputation. If students themselves are caught with drugs, punishments aren't less severe either - starting from house arrest, and kicking out of the school, to even prison sentence, and forced labor. Sometimes drug tests are done alongside with rooting out the opposition in school system - both between students, and teachers.''
Are drug tests required for receiving welfare?: "Yes, as we don't want junkies to spend their welfare money for drugs, and drain the budget. While we might have a bit of a socialist darwinist approach, when you will be old, you will receive good pension for your work for the state. Drugs, however, will deny you a lot from your possible income, and welfare, just like alcohol would."
Are schools equipped with CCTV cameras?: ''Yes - like any other public institutions, schools are equipped with CCTV cameras. According to SC's laws, ''Every school must have at least two cameras'', and security requirements are higher for more elite, and modern schools. However, the newly set up schools in disputed zone are often an exception for this, as disputed zone's school systems often lack funds for basic needs, not even talking about cameras. ''Second world'' schools, however (other two superstate former territory), must also be equipped by cameras.''
Are schools permitted to monitor students within their own homes? ''Well, yeah. Schools are considered as public institutions, so unlike individual persons, they have larger permissions to monitor people, including students - after all, they are the future generations, and we would want, that only the best become the elites in political, and social rank, don't we? Parents, who home school children, or which children take part in distance education, must be left to be monitored by state, however, as parent's are individual persons, not public institutions. (Guilds, however, can track students just as schools would, if they have disciples.)''
Does your nation have a national ID? ''Yes, we have - it usually consists from 11 digits, and first six numbers are the person's date of birth. Next number stands for the century, in which person was born, following three stand for birth serial number, and last one is a checksum. It is usually used by regional governments to track down citizens for purposes of social welfare, taxation, work, health care, and other government-related business. It is basically essential, and issued to all SC's citizens, when they reach age of 16.''
Is an ID required to rent an apartment? ''Yes - an identification card, and passport are required for that in richer, and ''first world'' regions, along with some parts of ''Second world'' regions. In ''third world'' regions, usually only passport is enough.''
An hotel room? ''Yes, Just like with apartments - an identification card, and passport are required for that in richer, and ''first world'' regions, along with some parts of ''Second world'' regions. In ''third world'' regions, usually only passport is enough.''
To buy a car? ''Yes, it is required. Well, having a driver's license is an obvious requirement too. It is later used to keep a track on the car, and in case, if driver would do something illegal with it, SCPS could track them down quickly. State car factories usually advise to ''not buy cars from shady dealers'', as while they might avoid all the fuss with documents, state tries to keep a monopoly on car manufacturing, and getting car without ID would seem to be very suspicious.''
To rent a car? ''Similarly to buying a car - Yes, it is required. Well, having a driver's license is an obvious requirement too. It is later used to keep a track on the car, and in case, if driver would do something illegal with it, SCPS could track them down quickly. Surprisingly, this is one of the few cases, which is constant across pretty much all of SC's regions - even in places like Commonwealth of Chad in Africa, an ID is required to rent a car. That said, in poorer regions, there are less cars in general, along with infrastructure, so ID is used rarely there.''
To buy a plane or train ticket? ''No, not quite the case for trains - it is one of the few cases, where SC doesn't demand ID, and anyone can buy a ticket, if they have enough money. (Prices differ across the regions) However, if train route takes part through two, or more regions, a passport is required, in order to travel to anywhere other than your region. For planes, however, ID is required to buy a ticket, as flight service uses it to keep a check on passenger activity. In order to travel outside your own region, you need a passport as well, just like with train.''
To buy a firearm? ''Yes - it is required for both buying, and owning a firearm - if you have neither a passport, or ID card, you can't get a gun, even in those regions, where laws on them are more lax, as members of militias must register their weapons as well. Also, in order to buy something stronger than a pistol, you must also have an ID, which would prove, that you are a member of an army, or you have other, specific reason for that, as in SC, gun manufacturers don't hand out ''the big guns'' for common citizens without a valid reason. (Exception is the time, when one, or many regional governors approve of partisan warfare - then you can get gun without an any ID. However, you must still verify, that you are loyal.)''
To buy alcohol? ''Yes - we require ID for that. In fact, in many regions, you can't buy alcohol at all, due of strong prohibitionist laws, and trying to brew it on your own, or smuggling it in the region, will end up with harsh penalties - even possibly with death. Even in those regions, where you can buy it, you can usually buy it only in limited quantities. That's where ID comes in handy - If you are under 18, you are not allowed to buy alcohol. Alcohol is not allowed to be purchased for those with repeated problems with alcohol as well, and alcoholics usually are sent to ''rehabilitation centers''.''
To buy medication? ''Indeed, we want to make sure, that medication is used for its purposes, not for intoxication. When someone orders a large amount of medical supplies, we usually check their ID, and history, in order to make sure, that they haven't had problems with drugs in the past, as medicine has sometimes been used in places, where drugs have been banned. Even hospitals aren't free from ID checks, as there have been cases of doctors prescribing too much medication for a person, most likely as a replacement of drugs. The tribal shaman ID, and their used medication is often checked as well.''
To buy pets? ''Yes, along with an any other identification tool - like a passport, for an example, or even ID card. That said, in those regions, who are still rebuilding from disputed zone's warfare, usually only personal code, and passport is used, as ID card technology hasn't been implemented there yet, due of costs, and horrendous regional development.''
To buy recreational drugs? ''Yes. In fact, for doing that, you would need something more than just the identification documents of a person - you would also need to get a special permit from government to do so, as all legal drug trade is regulated by various SC's regional governments, after the ''war on drugs'' failed, and they decided to seize the market of it in their hands instead. Buying illegal drugs is a dangerous offense, and can land you in prison, or even get you punished by death.''
Is your society a cashless society? ''No, and we never have considered abolishing cash, as we consider it ''the best possible currency from all others'', and that ''without it, society as we know it couldn't function at all''. That said, in some regions (Especially lesser developed ones), there is also a system of barter, and gifts. However, while it could be said, that various forms of barter exist in almost all regions, they exist alongside with cash, not as the only currency. Also, for large, and expensive deals, money is used way more often than barter, and barter is considered as less stable than money as well. That said, some of the currencies are called ''credits'' as well, referencing the idea of a ''labor credit'' in a socialist economy. However, unlike socialist labor credits, those credits are rather like a fancy name for a normal cash, and don't have to be destroyed - in fact, they can be also exchanged between workers.''
Does your society have gun registration? ''Yes, we do register guns, which proles own. In fact, gun rules are often so harsh in SC's ''first world'', that proles can only use pistols at most. In some other regions, populace is better armed, as various militias are an integral part of the defense. However, even in there, guns of the proles, and soldiers are registered. Even elites aren't excluded from registration of guns, although they can usually bear more powerful weaponry, like laser rifles, and tesla cannons.''
Vehicle registration? ''Yes. Although lower classes use cars a lot rarer, as they are still pretty expensive, especially in Third world regions, a lot more of them can afford them in the last years, and in some places, there have been traffic jams already, despite public transport still being the most used. So, SC's authorities also order to register all privately owned cars.''
Bicycle registration? ''Yes - just like we would register bikes, tricycles, all-terrain vehicles, boats, and other private means of transport, we also register bicycles. Now, if compared to some of those, usage of bicycles is encouraged, as they are deemed as ''better for nature'', and creating little, to no emissions, and also being ''good for health'', so, even in SC's ''first world'', there are a lot more bicycles than cars.''
Dog registration? ''Of course - dogs are registered, like any other pets would be (cats, parrots, fishes, etc.). That said, while we have strict dog registration, and keeping laws in place, they are a bit more lax in rural places, where we sometimes have a harder time to enforce order. Also, for more exotic, and possibly dangerous pets like snakes, for an example, we have even stricter registration laws than for dogs. In those places, where is their natural habitat, their registration laws are still tough, due of possible danger from them, or irresponsible owners.''
Is it legal in your society to use a fake name to rent an hotel room? ''No, absolutely not. First, it is seen as an identity fraud, and could easily land you in a prison. Second, using fake names complicates the job for administrators of the state, SCPS agents, and hotel owners themselves.''

Is probable cause required to search a person’s belongings without a warrant??:Yes
Is probable cause required to search a person’s home without a warrant?:Yes
What is the definition of probable cause in your nation?:
[X] Direct knowledge of ongoing crime []51% or higher likelihood that evidence of crime is present? [] Something else.
Facts and evidences that lead a reasonable person to believe that the accused actually committed the crime. A probable cause is not a fail proof evidence as it only provides enough grounds to deem the accused guilty of the crime, and thus to arrest and put the accused to trial. The citizen or peace officer must be able to forensically present or articulate the facts and circumstances forming the basis for probable cause. Reasonable suspicion is not necessarily probable cause.
What level of proof is required to get a search warrant?:A person must convince an independent grand jury, or a neutral and detached justicar that they have probable cause to believe that criminal activity is occurring at the place to be searched or that evidence of a crime may be found there usually by affidavit. If the Jury believes that the persons or affidavit of the persons establishes probable cause to conduct a search, a warrant will be issued. Only a justicar can issue a warrant without without grand jury consideration, but is more liable to deprivation of rights charges for doing so. The suspect, who may be connected with the place to be searched, if not present when the warrant is issued (therefore unable to contest the issue of probable cause) may make a counter-claim against the accuser.

Is a warrant required to install keyloggers or other equipment on a person’s computer?:no warrant allows keyloggers to be used as that is considered an act of war against the People.
Are no-knock warrants legal? If yes, in what situations?Only during a recognized state of mixed war and only by citizens acting against unlawful authority of misfeasance of government officials. Grand Juries in the Commonwealth are independent of and superior to the Public Prosecutors Office. Therefore if the citizens can show that they are being mistreated by their public servants, an independent grand jury may issue no-knock warrants against the petty tyrants. The government may ask for no knock warrants against other government officials, but no government may have no-knock warrants issued against any citizen.
