[X] Hanging
[] Decapitation
[X] Lethal injection

[] Other:

2. Can prisoners choose the method of execution? Yes, in 15 states and the Navy
2a. If yes, which method of execution is the most popular? Firing squad

D. PROTOCOL AND PROCEDURES

1. While waiting for execution, are prisoners kept in custody? Yes
1a. What are conditions like in death row (if applicable)? Decent on the whole, though prison conditions in Kyllera State are substandard across the board.
2. Are prisoners informed of the execution date? Yes
3. Are family members informed of the execution date? Not directly. In practice, the condemned or their attorney will inform the condemned's next-of-kin.
4. Is the public informed of the execution date? Yes
5. Are prisoners offered a last meal? Yes
6. Which day of the week do most executions take place? No day in particular. Weekends and the Sabbath are typically avoided.
7. Are executions public or private? Varies by state and at the discretion of judges and governors.
8. Who is invited to view executions? No persons are specially invited. Private executions are usually witnessed by the condemned's legal counsel, a representative of the state, and selected members of the press in the interest of transparency and accountability. At the request of the condemned, a member of the clergy will be summoned to perform last rites. The spouse and immediate relatives of the condemned may also be allowed to attend, in some jurisdictions. Contrary to practice in many Western countries, victims and/or their families are not permitted to attend private executions.

9. Are executions reported by the media? Yes
10. Are executions broadcast on television? No. Several states do videotape executions as a matter of standard procedure, and the federal government videotapes the executions of select high-profile offenders, but these tapes are sealed and destroyed after 90 years. Unauthorised recording of an execution is punishable by hefty fines.
11. Do prisoners have the opportunity to make a final statement? Yes
12. Who else makes statements before an execution (if applicable)? An officer of the state, usually a prison warden or senior policeman. Historically, governors and attorneys-general of the state have fulfilled this role, but this is unheard of nowadays.
13. Are prisoners blindfolded? Yes. It is standard procedure to blindfold those being executed by firing squad, but prisoners may refuse the blindfold, and many do.
14. How are executioners selected? In all states, firing squad members are selected by lot from a pool of state militiamen who, at the time of their enlistment, indicated their willingness to perform executions if called upon. In instances when militiamen are unavailable (e.g. when deployed overseas on federal duty) state police may be called upon instead. Firing squads for federal and military courts are composed of federal troops. Firing squads for admiralty courts may be drawn from the Federal Navy, Littoral Force, or Army Marine Corps. Electrocutions are usually conducted by state police, and lethal injections are carried out either by a doctor/medic employed by the prison system or by a militia medic.
15. Do doctors or medical professionals supervise executions? Yes

16. What happens to the bodies of executed prisoners? They are turned over to their next-of-kin. If there is no such person or they are unwilling to accept the body, it is cremated and buried in a potter's field. If a religious or cultural objection to cremation is noted, the corpse is buried in a potter's field undisturbed.
17. Are family members required to pay for the execution? No, executions are financed out of the state or federal treasuries.

E. PUBLIC OPINION

1. What percentage of citizens support capital punishment for these crimes?
1a. Murder: 55-65%
1b. Rape and violent assault: 30-45%
1c. Armed robbery: 10-20%
1d. Drug trafficking: 8-25%
1e. Drug possession: 4-6%
1f. Gang membership: Not a crime in itself under Kiravian law.
1g. Immorality: We do not know of a crime by this name in Kiravia or anywhere else for that matter.
2. What percentage of citizens oppose capital punishment for all crimes? 45-50%
3. Is capital punishment considered effective for reducing crime? Many consider it a necessary deterrent. Capital punishment has never been introduced into a Kiravian jurisdiction where it had not previously existed, so it is impossible to judge whether it "reduces" crime.

5. Does the leader have authority to veto a death sentence? Yes; however, like many powers of Imperial intercession, this can be overridden by a two-thirds majority of the Senate.

Dieselpunk setting with fantasy elements. All game-generated statistics will be summarily ignored in favor of a compelling story. Aldina's views and ideologies do not represent my own.
