    What is the minimum legal age to:
  • Get a driver's license: Provisional driving licenses may be issued from 15 years of age, but a full license may only be achieved at 17.
  • Vote in elections: 17 (16 in most local elections)
  • Get married: 17
  • Join the military: 16 for voluntary enlistment into home army and militia, conscription into the regular army begins at 18.
  • Age of consent: 16
  • Buy/drink alcohol: While the purchase and public consumption of alcohol is restricted to those 16 years of age or older, the consumption of alcohol in the home or alongside a meal at a restaurant by a child of at least 10 years is left to parental judgement.
  • Buy/use marijuana: Marijuana is classified as an illegal drug in Chisei, and while only distribution and production are criminalised, there is no established legal age for consumption or purchase.
  • Buy/use any other drugs: 16 in general if the drug is age-restricted.
  • Be legally recognized as an adult under your nation's laws: 16
  • Become leader of your country: There is no minimum age to be elected as Dajō-daijin, but a natural prerequisite is a seat in the House of the People and the majority backing of the House itself. Parliamentary candidates without a college education from a prestigious academy, such as the Eito, Hosu or Terume daigaku, often find difficulties being selected to represent their parties, and even fewer are likely to attract the confidence of a heavily elitist house. This places at the very least a minimum age of 30 on national leadership. The youngest ever Chiseian Chancellor was Shinoa Tapuro, elected in 1960 and born in 1924.
