Postby Imperium Sidhicum » Fri Nov 04, 2016 12:43 pm

A. GENERAL

1. Full nation name: Imperium of Sidhae
2. Type of government: monarchy/stratocracy
3. Which legal system is used? Check all that apply:
[] Common law
[x] Civil law
[] Socialist law
[] Religious law
[x] Other:

4. Does capital punishment exist in law? Yes
5. Is capital punishment used in practice? Yes
6. In what year was capital punishment abolished (if applicable)? n/a
7. In what year was the most recent execution? Current year (2630 CE)
8. On average, how many prisoners are executed per year? Hundreds of thousands; a negligible number in an empire with a population of trillions

B. LEGISLATION

1. Which crimes have a mandatory death sentence? Death penalty is reserved mostly for military personnel and civilians living under military administration for crimes like desertion, cowardice, looting, espionage, sabotage, aiding and abetting an enemy or a known enemy of the state, disobeying a lawful order (depends on circumstances), mutiny, etc.
2. Which crimes have an optional death sentence? Murder, large-scale corruption, large-scale embezzlement, high treason, large-scale theft of state property, piracy, armed robbery, any premeditated violent crime committed in a group, incitement to rebellion or mutiny, forming an organized group with the intent to commit a crime, large-scale fraud, political subversion.
3. Are death sentences decided by judges, juries, or both? By judges or comparably-empowered officials. Imperium does not practice trial by jury.
4. Can death sentences be appealed? No. Most are carried out immediately after being passed.
5. Does the leader have authority to veto a death sentence? Yes, the monarch and individuals accordingly empowered by the monarch may veto a death sentence.

6. Can people under 18 be executed? Yes
7. Can people over 65 be executed? Yes
8. Can men be executed? Yes
9. Can women be executed? Yes
10. Can government officials be executed? Yes
11. Can foreigners be executed? Yes

C. METHODS

1. Which execution methods are currently used? Check all that apply:
[] Hanging
[x] Decapitation
[] Lethal injection
[x] Firing squad
[x] Gas chamber
[] None of the above

1a. For nations with lethal injection, which drugs are used? Check all that apply: n/a
[] Sodium thiopental
[] Pancuronium bromide
[] Potassium chloride
[] Midazolam
[] Hydromorphone
[] Other:

1b. For nations with gas chambers, which gases are used? Check all that apply:
[x] Hydrogen cyanide
[x] Carbon monoxide
[] Carbon dioxide
[] Nitrogen
[x] Other: Death row convicts are often used to test new chemical weapons

2. Can prisoners choose the method of execution? Usually no. Sometimes an offender whose guilt can be proven beyond doubt and is most likely going to be sentenced to death or long imprisonment is allowed to instead commit suicide and avoid trial and public disgrace as a special favour, usually for honourable past service. Soldiers are customarily entitled to be executed by firing squad rather than the usual single shot to the back of the head, allowing them to face their demise standing upright as proper Sidhae. Ranking Sidhae of renown are sometimes also allowed to command their firing squad, granted at their own request.
2a. If yes, which method of execution is the most popular? The means for forced suicides are left at the subject's own discretion. A subject from whom suicide is expected is customarily notified of it by being given a green silk noose or a single blaster round, though one is not necessarily expected to use the provided article for the act itself.

D. PROTOCOL AND PROCEDURES

1. While waiting for execution, are prisoners kept in custody? Usually no. An inmate sentenced to death will usually be executed in a summary manner immediately after being removed from court, usually being killed already on way to a body disposal site.
1a. What are conditions like in death row (if applicable)? Those who for some reason must await their execution are housed no differently than ordinary prisoners, and most often aren't even informed of being sentenced to death (Imperial laws not requiring the defendant's presence during conviction). This is to ensure their compliance, seeing to it that the prisoners do not suspect their impending fate until the fatal moment.
2. Are prisoners informed of the execution date? No. Those who are present in court when sentenced to death know that their execution will follow immediately afterwards, while those condemned to death in absentia are kept ignorant of the fact and killed quickly and quietly during a routine prison procedure, such as during transfer to a different cell.
3. Are family members informed of the execution date? Sidhae have no families, so notifying next of kin is not necessary.
4. Is the public informed of the execution date? If the authorities intend to make an example out of the convict, then yes.
5. Are prisoners offered a last meal? No. Sidhae see no point in lavishing such luxury on convict scum about to die.
6. Which day of the week do most executions take place? Any day that is expedient.
7. Are executions public or private? Usually executions are private, except when carried out for purposes of public intimidation.
8. Who is invited to view executions? In public executions, the entire target audience in immediate area is compelled to attend in order to witness the example set for them. For example, all soldiers present in an area will be required to witness the execution of deserters, cowards and mutineers to remind them of the consequences of such crimes. Same would apply to rebellious civilians. Other than that, executions are usually carried out away from public eye, the only witnesses being those involved. Sometimes the authorities will put the remains of particularly hated criminals on display to show that the justice has been served.

9. Are executions reported by the media? Some are. Most go unnoticed, the Imperial authorities preferring not to advertise criminals and their crimes for any reason.
10. Are executions broadcast on television? If the public demands so, or if the authorities wish to make an example.
11. Do prisoners have the opportunity to make a final statement? Those sentenced to die in public usually are. Individuals convicted for sedition and other political crimes are usually executed away from the public eye in order to avoid giving them a martyr's status among potential supporters.
12. Who else makes statements before an execution (if applicable)? In public executions, the convict's crimes are read aloud to the public (usually coupled with graphic descriptions and images on large viewscreens if available) by the presiding magistrate. This is done to ensure nobody in the crowd will sympathize with the convict. The magistrate will then invite the convict to make his final statement.
13. Are prisoners blindfolded? No. A Sidh is expected to face his death straight in the eye. Convicts who remain defiant and unflinching are applauded/saluted by the spectators in deference to their final display of Sidhness, while those who flinch, struggle or otherwise show fear are jeered and ridiculed. Those executed away from sight are obviously denied such privilege, but are also never blindfolded to avoid alarming them about impending execution.
14. How are executioners selected? The majority of capital crimes are military in nature, so executions are carried out either by the offender's commanding officer, or by his comrades. A firing squad, for example, is usually selected by drawing lots.
15. Do doctors or medical professionals supervise executions? Unless it involves poisoning by gas, no. Being beheaded or shot in the head doesn't require a medical professional to determine death, and a finishing shot to the head is usually applied in case of execution by firing squad.

16. What happens to the bodies of executed prisoners? Usually they are unceremoniously recycled along with other organic waste (as are most bodies of ordinary citizens). Sometimes the remains are put on display to instill fear in others who might follow their steps.
17. Are family members required to pay for the execution? Having no family members, Sidhae are spared such indignity. Imperial authorities may, however, extract such payment from next of kin of human convicts as an added form of degradation.

E. PUBLIC OPINION

1. What percentage of citizens support capital punishment for these crimes?
1a. Murder: Most.
1b. Rape and violent assault: Few if any. Attempting to rape or assault a Sidh is a rather misguided decision that usually results in death or serious injury to the attacker to begin with, and assuming the assailant succeeds, imprisonment is still going to be a markedly worse sentence than execution for him.
1c. Robbery: Most. Pirates, brigands and other thieving villainous scum are widely hated and despised, public executions of their ilk being a celebrated spectacle.
1d. Drug trafficking: Most.
1e. Drug possession: A minority. Simply possessing drugs without intent to distribute isn't a capital crime.
1f. Adultery: Not a crime.
1g. Homosexuality: Not a crime.
2. What percentage of citizens oppose capital punishment for all crimes? Curiously, most Sidhae would prefer punishments other than death for all crimes - not because any would believe nonsense like "sanctity of life", but rather because killing the criminals is deemed letting them off too easily by most. A lengthy stay in a labour camp is, after all, effectively the same thing as execution, but stretched out over years, giving the offender ample time to regret his crimes as his life becomes a living hell.
3. Is capital punishment considered effective for reducing crime? No. It is used to eliminate liabilities, not to reduce crime. An offender likely to reoffend, or a convict with knowledge of state secrets are all liabilities that must be neutralized permanently.
Freedom doesn't mean being able to do as one please, but rather not to do as one doesn't please.

A fool sees religion as the truth. A smart man sees religion as a lie. A ruler sees religion as a useful tool.

The more God in one's mouth, the less in one's heart.
