1. While waiting for execution, are prisoners kept in custody?
Sometimes; final release is given on a case-by-case basis, but most death row convicts are given some time free(ish) to get their affairs in order. Universally, it is tradition to give death row convicts two days before their date of execution free.

Not much different than typical federal prison conditions (humane) , with more extensive visitation rights.

Upon the confirmation of their death sentence, death row convicts are given a date that is no earlier than 3 months after the confirmation of their sentence.

3. Are family members informed of the execution date?
Death row convicts are given extensive communication and visitation rights and are generally empowered to inform friends and family of their date of execution; it would be considered a violation of the death row convict's right to privacy to inform anyone of the date without their consent.

4. Is the public informed of the execution date?
Unless a death row convict has chosen to make information of their execution public, the date is not released to the general public. If the death row convict chooses to keep the date private, the completion of the execution and the date it took place is released to the public at the end of the year or six months after the execution (whichever is later).

5. Are prisoners offered a last meal?
Yes; death row convicts are allowed to request a specific meal of a value up to $150 USD

6. Which day of the week do most executions take place?

Death row convicts are allowed to choose whether they receive a public or private execution; with that said, it is considered traditional to have a public execution.

Yes, if any information is released publicly as requested by the executed-to-be. Public executions especially tend to generate a decent amount of media attention.

10. Are executions broadcast on television?
The actual execution is not allowed to be recorded (being illegal to do so) unless requested by the executed; that said, videos of public executions do prop up on the internet. No major media network would broadcast such a thing. Occasionally, protest groups opposing capital punishment will publicize such videos, and in those cases it is feasible for an execution video to be broadcast.

11. Do prisoners have the opportunity to make a final statement?
Yes, absolutely. Final statements can be made in writing and published, made vocally, recorded, and released, or can simply be made privately. The penitent confessions and remorse of those facing execution receive quite a lot of publicity.

12. Who else makes statements before an execution (if applicable)?
Victim Impact Statements may be made, either via recordings or personally by victims.

13. Are prisoners blindfolded?
The executed-to-be decides such a specific. Generally, blind-folds are not worn in favor of eye contact with executioners.

15. Do doctors or medical professionals supervise executions?

A. GENERAL

1. Full nation name: The Empire of Victorious Decepticons
2. Type of government: Autocratic military dictatorship
3. Which legal system is used? Check all that apply:
[] Common law
[] Civil law
[] Socialist law
[] Religious law
[X] Other: Statutory law, set down by Leader Megatron himself.

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? Late last year
8. On average, how many prisoners are executed per year? 5
9. Which year had the most executions? The Year of our Independence 550

B. LEGISLATION

1. Which crimes have a mandatory death sentence? Any kind of treason
2. Which crimes have an optional death sentence? Miscoding of offspring
3. Are death sentences decided by judges, juries, or both? Neither. They are ordered by the heads of Domestic Intelligence investigation teams or local DomIntel office supervisors.
4. Can death sentences be appealed? Yes
5. Does the leader have authority to veto a death sentence? Yes

6. Can people under 18 be executed? Of course! Our age of majority is 5, we're certainly not letting them just ride for 13 more years. (A sapience test is given to youth in order to determine their level of responsibility. If they score over 70% in the relevant areas of thought processing, execution is allowed.)
7. Can people over 65 be executed? There is no upper age limit for executions.
8. Can men be executed? "Men" are a form of human. They can be killed at a whim.
9. Can women be executed? Same as for men.
10. Can government officials be executed? Yes.
11. Can foreigners be executed? Certainly.

C. METHODS

1. Which execution methods are currently used? Check all that apply:
[] Hanging
[] Decapitation
[] Lethal injection
[] Firing squad
[] Gas chamber
[X] None of the above - Throw 'em in the smelting pit!

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

1b. For nations with gas chambers, which gases are used? Check all that apply:
[] Hydrogen cyanide
[] Carbon monoxide
[] Carbon dioxide
[] Nitrogen
[] Other:

2. Can prisoners choose the method of execution? Not officially, but most actually do so by forcing the government's hand.
2a. If yes, which method of execution is the most popular? The condemned will typically fight to the death against the troops sent to get him. This makes street battle against the government the most common de-facto form of execution.

D. PROTOCOL AND PROCEDURES

1. While waiting for execution, are prisoners kept in custody? No. When the execution order is made, troops go try to collect the person from wherever they happen to be at the time.
1a. What are conditions like in death row (if applicable)? N/A
2. Are prisoners informed of the execution date? Not in the way most would think. We believe the appearance of a military death squad on one's doorstep is sufficiently self-explanatory!
3. Are family members informed of the execution date? No
4. Is the public informed of the execution date? No - they find out when whatever they're watching on the holovision is cut into by the execution broadcast.
5. Are prisoners offered a last meal? NO, we're not wasting precious Energon on a walking piece of slag!
6. Which day of the week do most executions take place? No particular day.
7. Are executions public or private? Very public. They're broadcast live on all holovision channels!
8. Who is invited to view executions? We assume you mean for in-person viewing. A foundry operator, a government official, overt Domestic Intelligence agents who were involved in the bust, and anyone directly harmed by the traitor's actions. Others may be present depending on the circumstances.

9. Are executions reported by the media? Always.
10. Are executions broadcast on television? Broadcasts are for holovision, not TV - but if we executed someone from a country that used the obsolete standard, we'd run a feed in that protocol as well.
11. Do prisoners have the opportunity to make a final statement? Not officially, but they typically try to yell out some nonsense or other before we can drop them into the molten metal, or while they're fighting the troops if they choose to battle to the death instead. If their crime was along the lines of spreading seditious nonsense, we deactivate their voice chips before a meltdown so that they cannot use the event as a platform to spread even more of it. Alas, in a battle, we don't have a chance to do that so we just have to blast them down faster!
12. Who else makes statements before an execution (if applicable)? The government official or a DomIntel agent will make a statement about the reasons for the execution. This may be very basic or it may include information about the evidence that led to the death warrant.
13. Are prisoners blindfolded? No!
14. How are executioners selected? Typically, the most aggrieved party will get the honor of pulling the drop switch.
15. Do doctors or medical professionals supervise executions? No! It's pretty easy to tell when someone is dead. He's either molten metal, or if he fought in the street, he's a field of debris.

16. What happens to the bodies of executed prisoners? They're melted, re-forged, and made into new parts for proper Decepticons.
17. Are family members required to pay for the execution? No. The State actually profits (a little) from executions since scrap metal has intrinsic value. If someone who fights manages to take out a troop or two before he is overwhelmed by the rest of the death squad, we eat the cost of replacing his body and give grudging respect to the battle skills of the one we were after.

E. PUBLIC OPINION

1. What percentage of citizens support capital punishment for these crimes?
1a. Murder: 0%! The ability to permanently remove or attempt to remove your enemies on your own - via the method of physically eradicating them - without any interference from the State whatsoever is an inherent privilege of Decepticon citizenship - in other words, what you would call an inalienable right!
1b. Rape and violent assault: 0%, you should kill your attacker yourself!
1c. Armed robbery: 0%! We'd all be dead if this was illegal!
1d. Drug trafficking: Wut? 0%, if there's a buyer, it's just sensible to be the seller.
1e. Drug possession: 0%, how can you sell the dope if you don't possess it first!?
1f. Gang membership: 0%!! Our entire society is gangs all the way down - from the biggest raid gang being the Decepticon Military to two young kids who are on Baby's First Raid, this is a gangster society. Those who are AGAINST this, on the other hand, are cultural traitors and we would not just support, but outright demand their execution.
1g. Immorality: ...Depends how you define "morality." WE don't care at all about human sex stuff, if that's what you're getting at. But if you break Decepticon morality, for example by intentionally miscoding your offspring, at least 99% will want you dead.
2. What percentage of citizens oppose capital punishment for all crimes? 0%. It would also be cultural treason to oppose it. Such opposition is considered weakness and cultural corrosion, and we will not allow it to contaminate our great nation.
3. Is capital punishment considered effective for reducing crime? Yes. Nations where this is not the case are doing it wrong. It's not enough to just SAY someone was executed. It needs to be broadcast so that it's not such a remote event.

Of course, this would be just one branch of a multi-pronged anti-crime initiative, the details of which must be properly tailored to counter whichever crime is supposed to be deterred. Leader Megatron, for example, is careful not to cause general anger within the populace unless the alternative is undeniably worse. This naturally limits the number of traitors from the supply side, so execution is only needed for the obstinate hold-outs.
No war RPs; no open RPs.
