Pro-Natalist Policies in Your Nation

Postby The Land of the Ephyral » Tue Jul 03, 2018 7:50 am

A pro-natalist policy is a government programme or system that exists to award the reproduction of citizens, typically within a homogeneous society.

Historical examples include the Lex Julia laws of Augustus which implemented greater social freedoms for Roman women who bore three children.

Most famously, examples were re-introduced by Nazi Germany for the production of Aryan children. These included the Cross of Honour of the German Mother, an award given at three tiers to German women who successfully gave birth to and raised a set number of children, Bronze was for four children, Silver for six, and Gold for eight.

Nazi Germany also implemented a marriage loan, in which medically fit Aryan newlyweds could apply for a loan in the form of 1000 RM worth of vouchers to be used for the acquisition of household items, with repayments at a rate between 1% and 3% depending on work status every month. The birth of a child eliminated 25% of the principle, and therefore four children would successfully eliminate the debt.

After Nazi Germany, West Germany had a similar policy, and pro-natalist ideas are not unknown to others.

Does your nation's government provide any incentives towards childbirth of such a nature?

Conversely, are there any punishments or anti-incentives, that push towards reproduction not out of a gain but of avoidance of a loss (such as fines or increased taxation for unmarried and childless citizens)?

In Eglaecia, the Birth Initiative was started after the birth rate fell to 1.9 in 1994. The BI was composed of numerous social security measures that gave subsidies to women so that they could afford children. The results of the Birth Initiative have been regarded as successful, with the urban birthrate climbing up from 1.5 in 1994 to 2.3 in 2004, and currently sitting at 2.4 (2017), and the rural birth rate climbed from 2.1 (1994) to 2.7 (2004) and currently sits at 2.9 (2017). The Birth Initiative was last expanded in 2010, when the CDC in cooperation with the opposition, began promoting childcare initiatives, subsidising nurseries and daycare programs across the country.

The policies on natalism in Esotana depend on the SR in question. The national government has however a Department of Demographics Control to manage the Esotanan population, and it's often this department that manages SR policy. As per the 2015-2020 National 5 Year Development Plan the Government is aiming for a stable population growth rate of .45% a year and a TFR of 2.1, or the replacement rate of Esotana. The government through the planned economic system offers free daycare, cheap subsidized housing for newlyweds, stable with opportunities with sensible hours for child rearing, and support with parental education. The communal structure of Esotanan culture makes child rearing much easier as week, since parents don't need to watch their children and can ensure their safety on the streets of the country. On the National Level there are no monetary incentives nor loans for child rearing. In terms of provincial level policy, the Turan SR discourages more then 3 children with the regions inflated population. Regions such as Novoiason that still have much room to grow are encouraging more children with awards to good and fertile parents, as well as grants for children's toys.

When couples married they are awarded a loan of 50,000 ferroes to help start their household. For each child they have, the sum they must repay is decreased by 25,000. This is one method the state helps maintain a stable birth rate.

The Democratic States of Liberimery have no policies on reproductive rights to this degree. The government keeps volunteerary records on marriage for the benefit of spousal abuse or divorce enforcement. While popular, an estimate 20% of all marriages go unrecorded out of privacy concerns. There is no mandated to the number of children a couple may have. Citizens seeking welfare benefits may claim all children in the family and additional children that are born within one year after first benefits are claimed by the recipient. Future children beyond that one year date are not allowed to be claimed financially unless special circumstances beyond the guardian's control (common cases include but are not limited to being named a legal guardian in another's will or children that are a product of a rape. A family court judge may make exception in these cases.).

In Atkemri reproduction of all citizens are highly encouraged. For each child a family (the husband and wife) are given a tax break capping at 5% off their taxes at 5 kids. Aspiring mothers are given parenting lessons provided by the state and abortion is strictly illegal. However in order to claim these incentives a family must stay whole as statistics prove whole families produce more stable (economically speaking) children. As such marriage counciling is subsideized

Cloning in Carena has created several pro-natalist policies. In order to prevent misuse of cloning technology, the only legal manufacturers of cloned embryos is the Carenian government, and clones may only be produced to overcome the shortcomings of traditional breeding to prevent population loss, or to be used in the Biological Elite Forces Division (which is also highly regulated).

Most clones are raised by governments in "clone orphanages", massive buildings near cloning facilities which house cloned humans in their formative years, providing them the same education and other amenities as traditional born children until they turn 18 and they become legal adults. Prospective parents can choose to adopt a clone to raise themselves and in exchange, in addition to receiving family benefits that traditional born (or adopted) children get, the government will pay for all essential items for the child until they reach 18. Parents can also send their combined DNA to be cloned, providing them a clone that would match the DNA of a traditional born child.

As stated above, all families, whether their children are traditional born, adopted, or cloned, receive a tax deduction depending on the amount of children they have.

While the government doesn't provide any specific benefits towards women who give birth, there exists a "baby bonus" of 5000f that is given to families who welcome a child into their family, be it by birth, adoption, or other ways like surrogacy. The bonus was introduced in response to falling birth and adoption rates in the late nineties, and has been a considerable success, increasing birth and adoption rates by almost 25%. Couples and individuals that welcome twins or other multiples to their family get an extra 1,250f on top of the bonus per child because of the extra costs associated with multiple children.

In accordance with the religious freedom laws, all people who marry must have at least four biological children (if a man remarries after his wife dies, the previous children do not count, and half of the difference must be made up, rounding up, through the newest wife) if fertile (although stillborns and miscarriages also count, three surviving children are required to avoid the fines and legal penalties). More children is heavily encouraged, to counteract the extreme under-population throughout the world, especially in areas of the same religion.

For every child after the fifth biological one from the same spouse, one receives an additional tax cut (each child gives 10 % more tax cut than the previous, even going to negative tax rates). This will continue until all taxes but sales tax have been eliminated.

Citizens who have never married and who are beyond a certain age are required to go into the ministry (in a legal manner) at least 30 % of their time.

Fines are $2000 - $10000 for no children if fertile and married, $1000 - $7500 for one, $500 - $3000 for two, and $100 - $1000 for three.

Mandatory sterilisation occurs after a certain number of reproductions/pregnancies to term (two if both partners fully monogamous, or one for a partner and no limit for the other partner). The birthrate is encouraged to be under the amount to replace deaths, because of extreme overpopulation of the invasive species Homo faber and its symbiotic 'pets'. Fines relative to income are required for having more than one child if monogamous, and more than three if not.
Many medications include ingredients to lower fertility of males, and sometimes that is added to the water supply/dropped by planes when pest problems occur, or an area is very overpopulated.

We never force sterilization on someone, but a boss can make a woman redundant for getting pregnant unless it was either as the result of a rape, or the woman is high ranking enough to have it written into her contract that she can't be made redundant for getting pregnant.

Due to age reversal technology allowing for indefinite lifespans, a "birth credits" system is in place in the CTM to reduce the risk of overpopulation. A woman is required to pay a sum of money for every child she has, which starts at MB-15,000 for her first child and increases exponentially for more children (the sum is still less than the cost of raising a child to adulthood). If she does not pay, she is required to pay double the cost as a fine unless she has an abortion (Minecraftian abortion law prohibits forced abortions). However, due to social changes over the last few decades, the Minecraftian birth rate has massively fallen anyway.

Have children or don't. Not our affair. This obsession with making each of your slaves to produce more slaves is maddening! Do your citizens not understand that they're being used, being exploited for things of no concern to them deep down? Having a child is for the joy of having a child, not for maintaining a slave army or an ever-growing reserve of jobless!

Citizens in Cruciland are strongly encouraged to spit out as many children as the Nomadic Legion's assets and resources can allow for, after accounting for the materials required to resurrect dead citizens. The incentive to do so comes in the form of the ever-looming existential threat of being wiped out by universal/multiversal empires that continue to dwarf the Legion and its assets... Amazingly, in spite of their run-ins with such civilizations in the past, they have always found a way to avoid annihilation while leaving their enemies reeling- but nobody is taking any chances by failing to expand Cruciland's population.

Postby Darussalam » Thu Jul 12, 2018 7:59 am

Darussalami authorities generally adhere to the principle that if child-rearing is cheap, more people will have children. Child-rearing in Darussalam is significantly cheaper than in many other modern polities due to the lack of universal schooling (while Darussalamis have a high rate of literacy historically, this is largely accomplished by informal learning systems still prevalent in the realm today) as well as low housing cost in most major cities. Presently, total fertility rate in Darussalam is well above replacement, unlike some other developed modern polities.

Another factor that contributes to Darussalami fertility is social values. Celibacy and promiscuity are not strictly speaking illegal, but nonetheless discouraged. Darussalam has a liberal legal system that permits a wide variety of contracts - this includes various forms of marriage, including polyamorous and same-sex relationships. On the other hand, the fact that marriage is recognized as legal contract means that it is binding and enforceable. Unilateral divorce is difficult, and adultery is punishable as violation of contract. Nonetheless, heterodox relationships are permissible as long as they do not violate predetermined contracts - polygynous marriage and concubinage is still prevalent among certain segment of the elite, owing to the pressure to sire more offspring.

If a Immigrant had a child in Gregenia during this time they would be kicked out of the nation to keep the Gregenian population up and if you were a Gregenian you had to have atleast 2 children by the age of 28 and f you dont every year after that persons taxes would go up 5%. After New Years in 1988 the law was removed due to a higher Gregenian population than it was in 1985.

Does your nation's government provide any incentives towards childbirth of such a nature?

Oh, noooo, by the Divine Leader, no! Lots of people would fire up high-speed factories and make 1,000,000 kids EACH by tomorrow if they thought they were going to get a profit out of it! Pretty much everyone who already owns or manages a factory would retool it and make nothing else but more Decepticons. Then we'd have millions and millions of essentially-parentless, immature Decepticons running around all over the place and creating endless mayhem with their fully-equipped, adult-sized bodies!

Conversely, are there any punishments or anti-incentives, that push towards reproduction not out of a gain but of avoidance of a loss (such as fines or increased taxation for unmarried and childless citizens)?

No. We do not want our Coders to end up feeling like they're being forced to have kids, and therefore, resenting said children.

Note: When we repopulated Cybertron after the end of the Great War, it was done with high-speed factory production. During the first few years, we had literally billions of children, and less than 1,000 adults. Those times were a combination of interesting, fun, and incredibly dangerous. The fact that we are built at full size was both a blessing and a curse: A blessing because our kids won't just die if there aren't enough adults to directly care for them all, but a curse because they're full-powered and can easily kill you right from the moment of activation. As you might imagine, the hot tempers of youth led to many hot blasters, and for a while, just surviving to the age of majority was a challenge.

Yes, there are several pro-natalist policies in Andower. Firstly, the state offers a dating/matchmaking service which is very popular. While not being compulsory, it does give those citizens who take part a small tax break among other perks. Secondly there are incentives available to higher caste people who breed with other higher-caste people; tax breaks, child benefits, heavily subsidised healthcare, free childcare, subsidised housing and more are all available to eligible couples who have three or more children.

We also have a number of policies designed to discourage lower caste people from breeding. These range from financial incentives to be sterilised, tax breaks for childless people and penalties to child benefits if a person has more than one child.

Because of these policies, the higher caste population is growing with a fertility rate of 3.6. By contrast, the lower caste population is falling with a fertility rate of just 1.7. According to our nation's finest racial scientists this is a very desirable situation - they point to progressively advancing IQ scores as evidence that the nation's racial characteristics are gradually improving.
