Subject: Devontan State Department open to foreign questioning.
Under mass public pressure, the social media wing of the Devontan State Department (DSP) has officially opened itself up to open questions regarding Devonta and any of its policies towards whatever issue seems fit to a questioning nation. For example, feel free to ask how the Devontan government and people feel about you're nation.

Devonta and it's people have strong hopes. We will use this to better outreach a hand of prosperity and peace to the many nations of the world.

Nations can now ask questions in this thread, as they see fit. Have fun and thank you!

Sincerely,
Gabriel Isinglass, Devontan State Department Social Media Director


(OCC: Thank you nations like Exodia and Dawetid for the idea.)

Yes. The Devontan Constitution states all citizens of the republic have a "right to bear arms". This right can been limited and over the years it has been regulated solely by the federal government.

Currently to purchase a gun its a three step process:

(1) 5-day Background Check (no felony or domestic violence convictions)

(2) Mental health check

(3) 8 hour gun safety course (2x courses if getting concealed carry permit)

Civilian use of fully automatic weapons is banned. Also banned from civilian use are bump stocks, suppressors, armored piercing/incendiary rounds, magazines/drums with a capacity of over 35 rounds, and sawed off modifications.

The general public is also banned from purchasing high powered semi-automatic assault weapons like the AR-15 and AR-10. Although, public employees (i.e. teachers, soldiers, police officers, city workers, veterans, etc.) are allowed to purchase said weapons, as a reward for civil service.

The federal government has let the states decide concealed carry policy. Currently it is allowed in 3 of the 10 states. Open-carry is banned by federal law.

No direct relationships, but the Devontan constitution is heavily influenced by the works of Enlightenment philosophers like John Locke and Baron De Montesquieu.

As of 1978, the Death Penalty in Devonta has been abolished in all civilian councils (courts). Only military councils still have the death penalty as a means of punishment; however, it is rarely used. Only three military service members have been executed by military council rulings since 1978. All three in 2015 for high treason.

What is your stance on the #GamerGate movement?
Ask us anything!

Join MENINFORM today! Or that's not your style, issue a formal condemnation!

Our state, the League of the Six Free Peoples, is actually controlled by a cartel of neckbeards known as La Cosa Fedora. Members of the cartel are known as Honorable Gentlesirs. Citizens who are not members are known as normies.

Our armed forces are armies of the radicalized romanceless.

Do you fear us yet? If not, have some anti-neckbeard propaganda!

The movement is usually debated by the public. The Devontan government has not adressed the issue, but fully refutes any attempts to try to expose anothers private information.

And of course!

Current relations are considered very good.

Currently Nifon is considered a close strategic ally, especially sense it is one of the biggest suppliers of military arms to Devonta.

Alcohol and weed is perfectly fine in Devonta, as long as you do not operate a vehicle or cause a ruckus.

No AI.

Weed is perfectly okay. May people will be willing to smoke.

The ruling party is the Moderate Liberal Party. They lean center to center left.

The parties in opposition are the Liberal Democratic Party (center-left wing to left) and the Conservative-Libertarian Party (center-right wing to right).

The United States of Devonta condemns the use of child soldiers. The current minimal age to join the military is 18 years old.

Conscription has never been used. But a draft exist but is inactive and has never been used.
