Global Safety Rating Survey

Postby Seaxeland » Tue May 20, 2014 6:53 am

The Saxon Department of Defense has recently decided to compile a list of safest nations in the most fair and unbiased manner possible, to decide on which nations are subjected to the most and least crime, corruption, and political instability by compiling them into different classifications. Below is the aforementioned classifications of which are divided into several, smaller lists for convenience.

Heaven on Earth
.

In these nations, crime is almost nonexistent. Corruption is almost unheard of. The very idea of political instability is seen as a myth. People can walk the streets without worrying about some thug coming out the alley they walk by, roughing them up, and stealing their lunch money. The police are naturally a well-respected institution, and the law is taken very seriously.

Safe Havens

These nations are a sign of progress against the criminal plague which threatens world peace, they proudly proclaim that their crime rates are lowest they've ever had and will continue to drop even lower. Their courts churn out true, fair, and honest convictions, appropriate for those who have committed their crime. Corruption is the story of the century should it ever occur, and any ideas of dissent are quickly washed away by the prosperity being seen in this nation.

Borderline

These states are beset by dangerous, foreign-funded rebellions or large, influential international organized crime syndicates to the point that trials are often beset by fraud, and the guilty often get away with it. The police, suffering from budget cuts, are struggling to keep up with the rising crime rates, as insurrectionists occasionally capture small, outlying villages in the nation's rural areas.

Corrupt States

Corruption is so common, it doesn't even make the news. Most of the nations' politicians submit to some kind of criminal organization or another, and regularly take bribes to veto important legislation. The police and military are on the take, and citizens regularly emigrate to get away from all this, as police brutality has increased due to the lack of necessary equipment to perform in the modern field. People don't even put up missing persons posters anymore, since they're never seen again.

Anarchy and Danger

These are nations we do not feel are safe or trustworthy by our standards. We cannot in good conscience recommend travel to them, and caution interaction with them.

Full Nation Name: The Community of Drakadia
Government Type: Representative Parliament
Head of State: President Michael Masterson
Head of Government: Prime Minister Patrick Lonergan
Economic System: Social Corporatism

Are elections held? Yes, elections for the Community Parliament are held once every four years and Presidential elections are held once every seven years.
Are elections run by independent candidates, or by party candidates? Parties are outlawed from the Drakadian poitical system, and instead all candidates must be independent representatives running for the interests of their locality.
Can individuals or organizations pledge financial support to a politician's campaign? Yes, people, organisations, businesses and corporations can donate to a campaign, but all donations must be accounted and made available for public viewing.
Is the military a part of the government? Drakadia does not have a military. Instead, it has a small force of 84 troops known as the Armed Confrontation Service, a service wing of the Civil Defense. The highest ranking officer of the ACS is Captain Shane Galbraith, who takes orders directly from the Prime Minister.
Is the government secular or theocratic? The government is completely secular.
Is the legislative body a separate part of the government? No, the legislative body is the Community Parliament and the Government is the group of officials appointed to be Ministers for various departments.
Is the Supreme Court a separate part of the government? Yes, the Supreme Court falls under the Executive Judicial branch, which is a department within the office of the President. This was so that there would be an organisation under the control of an elected citizen, but equal to the Community Parliament in order to keep their legislation and power under control.
Do you have government agencies? Yes, many government agencies exist within Drakadia.
Are politicians subject to the law? Yes, every resident is equally subject to the law. (save for diplomatic mission staff, who may have immunity in some cases)
Is the media state-run? There is one state run broadcaster known as the Drakadian Broadcasting Service, or DBS. It operates 3 radio stations, 2 tv channels, 1 newspaper and 2 websites. However, many other independent broadcasters exist within the community.

Do you have an official police force? Yes, there is the National Police Force.
Is your police force militarized? There is a militarized unit known as the Emergency Response Unit. These are heavily armed officers who can respond to officer in danger situations very quickly. Other than that it is a civilian police force, but all officers also have the option to carry a 9mm semi-automatic handgun. Some take the weapon and some do not.
Do you have a secret police? No. There is a section of the Police known as the Special Detective Unit, which is a plain clothes detective unit. They are also armed with their own personal weapons (no automatic weapons are allowed, or weapons of excessive caliber) but are by no means a secret police.
Does your police force undergo sensitivity training? No. Drakadia was founded in 1972 and much of the population comes from large levels of immigration from various areas. Due to this melting pot of cultures, combined with the small community like nature of Drakadians, racism and discrimination have never been a major issue.
Do you have the death penalty? No.
Do you have prisons? Yes.
Do you have maximum security prisons? There was one maximum security prison from 1984-1994, but it was closed after the last inmate died and no one so far has committed a crime grievous enough to deserve the sentence to it.

Do you have security cameras in public places? Yes, there are cameras in town streets, playgrounds and in public buildings.
Do you monitor web searches? No
Do you tap phone calls? No
