Anti-Natalist Policies in Your Nation

Postby The Land of the Ephyral » Thu Jul 12, 2018 6:22 am

Here, viewtopic.php?f=23&t=446111, I made an inquiry into the idea of pro-natalist policies that may exist within the nations of NS.

Briefly, a pro-natal policy is any act of legislation, or perhaps even a simple custom, societal expectation, or general norm, that incentivises, encourages, and rewards childbirth and accepted reproduction, whilst potentially (but not necessarily) punishing a lack of procreation.

An anti-natal policy by contrast is legislation, custom, expectations, or norm, that disincentivises, discourages, and perhaps even punishes childbirth and procreation, or otherwise rewards or simply praises those that do not.

This issue is a little harder to cover. Anti-natal policies do not have to be anti-natal by design, and are often put forward under the notion of an expansion of civil rights, and the most key of these that have developed in recent decades is abortion. Abortion would classify as an anti-natal policy, as it makes it permissible to terminate a human (or potential human) life. In some cases where the idea of abortion also ceases to be taboo could be classified as social anti-natalism.

Abortion is legal in Thermodolia at the national level but not the federal level.

Does your nation punish those that procreate by any means, such as increased taxation, or even imprisonment or death?
No such things would be considered insane

Does your nation reward the lack of offspring?
Some more higher populated provinces tend to reward those who adopt or do not reproduce with monetary incentives

Because Thermodolia has an extremely high population of ~5 Billion adoption programs are heavily promoted over natural births. This program has seen success in that 4 out of 10 children in Thermodolia are adopted.

Emphasis is put on not having children but this is not mandatory

Does your nation, through custom, law, norm, or trend, permit or encourage any act that impedes or prevents procreation through its usage (eg. abortion, contraception, abstinence)? Yes, contraception and abortion are legal for all and actively encouraged for people of lower caste status

Does your nation punish those that procreate by any means, such as increased taxation, or even imprisonment or death? Yes, lower caste people who have more than one child are subject to a higher tax rate as they no longer qualify for certain tax breaks. They also do not receive child benefits beyond the first child

Does your nation reward the lack of offspring? Yes, but only lower caste individuals are rewarded in this way. There are financial incentives to be sterilised and to remain childless, as well as to have less than one child

Due to the complexity of devising specific questions on this subject, are there any other aspects of anti-natalism, either official or unofficial in your society, that you would like to express? Please do so here in as many or as few paragraphs as you would like. Anti-natal policies are aimed squarely at lower-caste individuals as part of our government's eugenics policies. Combined with pro-natal policies targeted at the higher castes and immigration policies designed to bring in higher caste individuals and keep out lower caste individuals, we aim to improve our nation's racial hygiene and thereby increase our society's potential.

Does your nation, through custom, law, norm, or trend, permit or encourage any act that impedes or prevents procreation through its usage (eg. abortion, contraception, abstinence)? Most forms of contraception are in the FII. Abortion is only legal if the mother's health is at risk, though it is something of a social standard for her to have a new child after.

Does your nation punish those that procreate by any means, such as increased taxation, or even imprisonment or death? No.

Does your nation reward the lack of offspring? No.

Due to the complexity of devising specific questions on this subject, are there any other aspects of anti-natalism, either official or unofficial in your society, that you would like to express? Please do so here in as many or as few paragraphs as you would like. In the event of a rape, the woman is still not allowed to abort. Instead, the government will offer the woman and her family financial, emotional, and spiritual support using a set aside reserve for matters like that. Once the baby is born, the woman can either give the baby up for adoption, or keep the baby. This system has shown moderate success.
No NS stats please.

Does your nation, through custom, law, norm, or trend, permit or encourage any act that impedes or prevents procreation through its usage (eg. abortion, contraception, abstinence)? Yes. We do not allow the factory production of offspring except under extreme circumstances, and even then, such production is to be done by government departments and not just anyone who's into mass manufacturing.

We also fully permit the stoppage of work on any offspring that is not yet activated, and even the intentional de-activation of offspring that have not yet shown any signs of sapience. The latter, however, will require getting past the not-yet-sapient offspring's Automatic Self-Defense Routine without getting killed by it.

Does your nation punish those that procreate by any means, such as increased taxation, or even imprisonment or death? Those guilty of factory-producing offspring without proper permission will be melted down for trying to cause massive instability in Decepticon society. The factory-built offspring will, in most cases, be summarily deactivated by the Decepticon Military. As not-yet-sapients, they are considered automatons at this point, and the quantity produced by a proper factory run means that there will almost always be too many of them for our orphanages to handle. This number of them all running their Automatic Self-Defense Routines, however, means that it would require a full-on Military battle to bring them down.

Does your nation reward the lack of offspring? Not intentionally, but everyone knows that it's not feasible to raid when you have either a not-yet-sapient, or worse, a barely-sapient kid tagging along. This means that there is a severe economic hit in practical terms, though there is no government-based reward for being child-free.

Due to the complexity of devising specific questions on this subject, are there any other aspects of anti-natalism, either official or unofficial in your society, that you would like to express? Please do so here in as many or as few paragraphs as you would like.

The government is currently running a high-speed factory of its own to supply a large amount of citizens to spread to planets we have recently conquered, but this is being done as part of a well-controlled and fully-staffed program. Nannies have been hired to raise these hordes of youngsters. With the proper care, factory-builts will attain full sapience, but do so a bit more slowly than hand-built, hand-Coded ones due to the lower amount of one-on-one attention they get.

Regular people who try to have offspring this way, however, find themselves instantly overwhelmed. One person can't raise 100 kids at once, let alone the 100,000 the average privately-run factory can produce per day. For this reason, private factory production of full offspring is strictly banned without explicit permission from the Leader himself.

Notably, it is completely legal to build full bodies in private factories. Nearly every non-custom "blank" (mindless body) is produced in this way. It only becomes illegal if the factory-built body is also pre-loaded with Code Intended to be Sapient (the "seed" of a Decepticon mind, which later actually becomes sapient). In factory production, this Code is randomized from a limited set of possibilities, and therefore eventually yields people who - while not copies of each other thanks to the randomization - have a higher-than-average amount of similarities in thinking.

Done incorrectly, the end result of pseudo-randomized coding is much like inbreeding in that it is more limited than it should be and is somewhat easy to spot by those done the usual way (with fully-individualized coding that has only "species-level" trait similarities). This is another reason we don't want randoms performing this process. Government-coded factory-builts have had their Base Code scripted by experts, and aside from a possibly-increased tendency toward loyalty to the regime, they will all develop into true individuals by the time they are mature.

Does your nation, through custom, law, norm, or trend, permit or encourage any act that impedes or prevents procreation through its usage (eg. abortion, contraception, abstinence)?
Abortion - Legal on demand (government-funded) and fully socially acceptable
Contraception - Fully legal (government-funded) and fully socially acceptable
Abstinence - Rare (the CTM is pretty damn promiscuous tbh)

Does your nation punish those that procreate by any means, such as increased taxation, or even imprisonment or death? A "birth credits" system is used to prevent overpopulation - a woman has to pay a set sum of money for every child she has (it exponentially increases for every child but is still less than the cost of raising a child)

Does your nation reward the lack of offspring? Not officially

Due to the complexity of devising specific questions on this subject, are there any other aspects of anti-natalism, either official or unofficial in your society, that you would like to express? Please do so here in as many or as few paragraphs as you would like. Due to age reversal technology allowing for indefinite life expectancy (keeping an individual biologically and superficially in their 20s-30s indefinitely) and social changes, the average number of children a woman has is 0.35 (most of the CTM's population does not have children, especially younger generations).

Abortion, while de jure illegal, is available in limited circumstances such as rape and risk to the mother's health. Contraception is fully legal with no restrictions. There are no legal regulations on abstinence.

Does your nation punish those that procreate by any means, such as increased taxation, or even imprisonment or death? No.

Does your nation reward the lack of offspring? No.
