Dogfights, cockfights and bullfights are banned since 1970 and is a Felony to attend, organize (both the event or gambling activity) or participate.

Anyway, correbous or "bull running" are not illegal. But some variants more harmful to the animals, as, the "bou embolat" or "bous a la mar" are banned.

The main difference between Azania's two largest political parties, the African National Congress (ANC) and the Democratic Party (DP), is a matter of fiscal rather than social policy. Socially, both parties espouse a liberal platform which includes upholding LGBT+ rights, a pro-choice stand on abortion, maintaining the Azanian welfare state, separation of church and state, nonracialism, etc. Economically, the DP pursues more fiscally conservative policies slated towards balancing the budget, deregulating certain sectors of the economy, privatising certain State-Owned Companies (SOEs), and removing or reducing labour protections. The ANC follows more socialistic policies, such as strong labour protection laws, public ownership of public utilities, government regulation of the economy, the continued existence of SOEs as a tool to encourage competition and provide basic services, and universal single-payer healthcare.

Foreign terrorist attacks don't often occur in Voxija, since Voxija is small, low-profile, and there's little reason to attack it. The terrorist attacks that do happen in Voxija are perpetuated by domestic groups like the Society for Viñak Heritage. The only foreign terrorist group that has seriously threatened Voxija in recent times is the Polar Nation.

Unlike the majority of nations, Yerbanistan solely uses the metric system for aviation (a holdover from when it was a Soviet republic). Technically, international flights use feet, nautical miles and knots for altitude, distance and speed, respectively, and metric for everything else, while domestic flights use metric for everything. But that distinction doesn't exist in practice, as commercial foreign travel has been outlawed for a long time. Almost all flights are operated for government or military purposes, and rarely ever leave Yerbanistan's airspace.

Andocara is culturally and economically integrated with the United States. As a result, most things found in America that don't exist elsewhere are also found in Andocara. Andocara may not get local American news, but it certainly gets most American media, ie CNN, Fox, American movies and TV shows etc. Most movies played in Andocarian cinema are American movies, it's extremly rare for an Andocarian film to reach a box office budget of even $1,000,000. Andocarians have the same taste in cars as Americans, as a result, the Andocarian automobile industry is linked with the U.S and creates Andocarian versions of the same exact models as the U.S (only difference is that the cars are right side steering). Unlike some other developed countries, American companies are dominant in Andocara, i.e Walmart, Applebee's, Burger King, American Express etc. Andocarians themselves have alot in common with Americans. Andocarian English has the same accent, vocabulary, and most spellings as General American English. Andocarians like the same sports as Americans, including but not limited to Baseball and American Football. They also like the same music (except they like Eurodance more than Americans do), eat the same foods, dress very similar, and are familiar with the same celebrities. They also have a very similar temperament to people from the Western United States. Even the first Andocarians, aside from Indigenous people, were once Americans. Outsiders often describe Andocara as "America with left handed traffic".

On our Country Levant range are the only 2 active Ski stations in Catarra. Levant range has the highest mountains in the island being the highest 2304m high. There were also ski stations in lower Tramuntana and Mistral range but they closed because of global warming as there is not enough snow to keep them working.

In Aikoland, all media is rated by the Bureau of Media Classification (Bureau de classification des médias, BCM), a government organisation originally established in 1966 as the Bureau of Film Classification. The Bureau of Film Classification was renamed to the Bureau of Media Classification in 1995 when the Government announced that the organisation would become responsible for the rating of television programs and video games in addition to film. The BCM began rating television programs and video games in 1996. While Aikoland is a European country, the PEGI ratings were not adopted in 2003 and they have no formal legal recognition in Aikoland.

The ratings used by the BCM are as follows:
- E - Enfants (Children) - Media rated E is considered suitable for all audiences.
- A - Adolescents - Media rated A is considered suitable for ages 13 and older.
- M - Matures - Media rated M is considered suitable for ages 17 and older.
- RA - Réservé aux adultes (For Adults Only) - Media rated RA is considered suitable for ages 18 and older. This rating is reserved for specifically adult-content, such as pornography, only and is enforced by law.

A new poll reveals that former regional diplomat Lenny Beteta is the "most hated political figure in Omigodtheykilledkenny" following his death-penalty conviction late last year for murdering the president. Former Defense Secretary Charlie Valentine, convicted in 2007 on corruption charges, told KBC News he could give Beteta "a big wet kiss" for finally taking the heat off him. Disgraced ex-President Manuelo Fernanda might have had few things to say too, but he is permanently unavailable for comment.

Beteta's case reentered news headlines this week when an appeal fell flat after the lead judge presiding over the hearing ordered that the book be thrown at Beteta. "Ow! That hurt!" he protested. "Why did you drag me here in the first place?" he asked his lead attorney. "I thought defendants did not attend appeals hearings?" He got no answer, as his lead counsel, per usual, was fast asleep.

Incidentally, the judge also ordered the book be thrown at the author of this post, for "recycling his own lame jokes." **Ow! That really does hurt!**

One of the biggest and important events that led to the transformation of the German Empire into a democracy was Prince Wilhelm's Coup. Prince Whilem's Coup was led by Crown Prince Wilhelm with the backing of the German Parliament who sent an ultimatum to Wilhelm II after Wilhelm II refused to allow talk of more democratic reforms and changes in the empire and refused to let the country out of his personal rule. The Coup was successful Wilhelm II was caught in a bind that he could not escape from finally and agreed to abdicate the throne in favor of his son. Prince Wilhelm was crowned Kaiser Wilhelm III of Germany and marked a new era for the German Empire
