Suicide in Your Nation

Postby The Land of the Ephyral » Thu Jul 19, 2018 1:27 pm

The act of suicide, or self-killing, is when an individual or in some cases groups, will takes measures to ensure their own (typically quick) deaths. Suicide has throughout history been performed for a number of reasons, many of which still exist today.

Honour suicide remains one of the most difficult to comprehend for many in the West, such as those found in the Japanese and South Asian cultures, where men (and occasionally women) would be expected by custom, society, or even law, to take their own lives following an event. This could be a military defeat, having been the victim of a sexual assault, or a myriad of other reasons.

Suicide is also engaged in out of a mixture of grief, depression, and despair, to the point where death becomes (in the point of view of the person) a preferable alternative to life.

Religion has also played a major part in suicide, often impacting the honour side of things. Whilst the main Abrahamic religions, Islam, Christianity, and Judaism, all declare suicide to be a sin, the act of dying in the name of God or one's religion as a martyr effectively washes away the sin of killing yourself in the first place.

The number and type of reasons one might commit suicide are vast, as are the methods, and this questionnaire seeks to explore the nature of suicide in your nations.

Due to the fact that even in cultures where suicide is a monstrous sin, a vile act, and utterly without tolerance, suicide still occurs, this questionnaire will be acting under the impression that acts of suicide are committed in your nation. If they are not, this questionnaire may not be applicable to you.

Are deaths by suicide in your nation recorded as separate from other acts of killing, such as accidental or murder? Yes, though this is excluding some specific circumstances (a popular religion in Mumbelia sees suicide by self-starvation/immolation as a holy form of self-sacrifice, and is marked as "death by natural causes"

As a percentage of annual deaths, how many are suicide? ~7%
Do societal or legal notions of honour or duty have any impact upon suicide in your nation? No
Do religious organisations or cults have any impact upon suicide in your nation? Yes, every few years or so some crackpot will form a doomsday cult and dictate a mass suicide.
What is the general social attitude to suicide?It is seen as foolish and selfish, though there has been some drift towards viewing it as something sad that could have been prevented.
Is assisted suicide permitted by law? Yes
Is the attempt of suicide itself a criminal act? No
What is the most common / are the most common methods of committing suicide? Poison, Self-inflicted gunshot wound, fleeing into desert or mountains unprotected.

Are deaths by suicide in your nation recorded as separate from other acts of killing, such as accidental or murder? Yes
How many deaths annually are attributed to suicide? 1-3 deaths / year. Highest suicide rate of 13 in Year 2001 (one year after Nuclear Holocaust).
As a percentage of annual deaths, how many are suicide? ~ 0.5%. Around 20 deaths per year, thanks to the immortality program.
Do societal or legal notions of honour or duty have any impact upon suicide in your nation? No.
Do religious organisations or cults have any impact upon suicide in your nation? No.
What is the general social attitude to suicide? A permanent solution to a temporary problem.
Is assisted suicide permitted by law? Yes, but severely discouraged and given advice.
Is the attempt of suicide itself a criminal act? No.
What is the most common / are the most common methods of committing suicide? Hanging.
What are the primary causes known for suicide? Just general sadness. Out of the very small pool of victims, it's hard to draw a conclusion of what makes certain Valentians just straight-out sad and suicidal in the first place. No family issues, no work issues, no criminal record - they just feel that life has no meaning.
Is suicide disproportionately linked to an ethnic group, social class, or sex? Not as far as we are concerned.
Are their any government schemes in place to try and prevent suicide, or otherwise help those that are suicidal? Therapists are all over the country, and consultations are free (therapists paid by the government).

What is the general social attitude to suicide? Depends on the kind of how suicide is comitted. Generally it is seen as a waste of precious biomatter and the individual talent. So rather negative.

Resurrection or cloning of those converted mass is a destinct possibility.

Yes, chemical, psychonic and bionetic therapy is used with potentially instable individuals to bring them back to maximum efficiency. Where this is not feasible, bionetic extraction is favored. However this does requires the consent of the individual.

Are deaths by suicide in your nation recorded as separate from other acts of killing, such as accidental or murder? Yes. Our medical examiners use the term "unnatural intentional non-criminal" to refer to suicide (or euthanasia-type deaths).
How many deaths annually are attributed to suicide? About 300 (plus around 2,000 attributed to legal euthanasia)
As a percentage of annual deaths, how many are suicide? Less than 1%.
Do societal or legal notions of honour or duty have any impact upon suicide in your nation? Not really, suicide is usually viewed as a mental health problem.
Do religious organisations or cults have any impact upon suicide in your nation? Yes, Christian/Muslim groups discourage suicide and usually have suicide hotlines.
What is the general social attitude to suicide? It is viewed as a mental health issue. Society almost views it as an involuntary act-- a complication of depression, like how some people die of heart disease or other chronic illness.
Is assisted suicide permitted by law? Not in cases of depression, but in medical cases outlined by law, a doctor can prescribe and even administer lethal drugs.
Is the attempt of suicide itself a criminal act? No
What is the most common / are the most common methods of committing suicide? Drug overdose is overwhelmingly the most common method.
What are the primary causes known for suicide? Depression, other mental illness.
Is suicide disproportionately linked to an ethnic group, social class, or sex? Not really, it is pretty consistent across ethnic/class/gender lines.
Are their any government schemes in place to try and prevent suicide, or otherwise help those that are suicidal? Yes. Our universal healthcare system provides many psychiatrists. Also, when treating severe depression, prescribing regulations are loosened. Doctors can prescribe drugs they normally wouldn't be able to when they are worried someone may commit suicide.

Are deaths by suicide in your nation recorded as separate from other acts of killing, such as accidental or murder?
Suicides are recorded specifically as suicides, counted separately from accidents and homicides.

How many deaths annually are attributed to suicide?
16,791

As a percentage of annual deaths, how many are suicide?
0.02%

Do societal or legal notions of honour or duty have any impact upon suicide in your nation?
Generally, suicide is not linked to honor or duty in Page, except in certain rural subcultures.

Do religious organisations or cults have any impact upon suicide in your nation?
Extremist sects of some religions have contributed to teen suicide, often because these sects condemn homosexuality or being transgender, which results in young people either being shunned by their family or forced into abusive "treatment" commonly referred to as conversion therapy. Although conversion therapy is illegal in Page, many operate in secret. It is believed more than two hundred teen suicides in the last year are attributed to hostile attitudes toward sexual orientation or gender identity. Criminal prosecutions have resulted from some of these suicides, with parents or sect members charged with abuse of a minor.

What is the general social attitude to suicide?
Polls indicate that 74% of Pagians find it acceptable for a terminally ill or permanently debilitated person to end their life. Pagians have expressed great concern about suicide due to mental illness, especially among young people, and believe in strong prevention efforts. However, suicide is not morally condemned. Suicide victims are often viewed with sympathy or pity.

Is assisted suicide permitted by law?
In Page, assisted suicide via overdose of physician provided barbiturates is legal when approved by one physician and one psychiatrist, provided that the patient has an uncurable illness, either terminal or permanently debilitating.

Is the attempt of suicide itself a criminal act?
No.

What is the most common / are the most common methods of committing suicide?
Suicide via barbiturate overdose is the only method for physician approved suicides. Approved suicides make up 63% of all suicides. The methods for unapproved suicides vary by region. In urbanized areas, jumping from a high place or jumping in front of a train is relatively common, as firearm possession is restricted within cities, especially the capital city of Andryand. In rural areas where citizens are permitted to keep guns on their own land, suicide by self-inflicted gunshot is the most common method. Carbon monoxide suicides were once very common but are now rare since older cars were replaced by more modern vehicles. After barbiturate overdose, self-inflicted gun shot, and jumping in front of a train, hanging is the fourth most common method used.

What are the primary causes known for suicide?
Incurable and debilitating physical illnesses, including chronic pain, account for 31% of suicides. Mental illness accounts for 50% of suicides, and suicide as a way of avoiding punishment for a crime or loss of status among the community account for 14%.

Is suicide disproportionately linked to an ethnic group, social class, or sex?
59% of suicide attempts are by women, while 62% of successful suicides are carried out by men. The age bracket with the most suicides are those 65+, followed by age 30 - 45, followed by ages 15 - 20. 9% of suicides are carried out by prisoners, most of whom are serving a decades long or life sentence.

Are their any government schemes in place to try and prevent suicide, or otherwise help those that are suicidal?
When many district governors imposed new restrictions on controlled drugs, especially opioids, the suicide rate among chronic pain sufferers spiked significantly. To remedy this problem, King Daniel Riveri issued Royal Edict 4538-16, which allows the physicians of chronic pain sufferers to keep these patients on opioids indefinitely. In the next year, suicide among chronic pain sufferers fell 21%. Since 2004, free therapy has been available to students in both grade school and university to combat depression among teens. As people jumping from buildings pose a serious danger to those on the ground, new laws have required that doors to rooftops are locked in most types of buildings.

Kawaiians distinguish between suicide that is carried out for what we consider honorable reasons, such as Penance for committing a heinous crime, or to restore the honor of one's family, or in the pursuit of vengeance against a wrong, and suicide for dishonorable reasons, such as out of grief, despair, or recklessness (accidental death caused by carelessness is considered by Kawaiians to be a form of suicide). The former are viewed as tragic but proper because they restore social harmony, the latter are shunned as offenses to social harmony.

Are deaths by suicide in your nation recorded as separate from other acts of killing, such as accidental or murder?
Kawaiians don't keep a record of deaths; it's considered inappropriate to dwell upon such things.

How many deaths annually are attributed to suicide?
Not know, see above.

As a percentage of annual deaths, how many are suicide?
Ditto

Do societal or legal notions of honour or duty have any impact upon suicide in your nation?
Yes, refer to our explanation of "honorable" vs. "dishonorable" suicide above.

Do religious organisations or cults have any impact upon suicide in your nation?
We are a theocratic state. Suicide for any reason is frowned upon, but "honorable suicide" is seen as way of correcting the harmonious imbalance in the cosmos.

What is the general social attitude to suicide?
Kawaiian attitudes are shaped by their church's teachings mentioned above.

Is assisted suicide permitted by law?
No, if a Kawaiian is going to take his own life, he cannot ask another person to share in that terrible responsibility.

Is the attempt of suicide itself a criminal act?
Under certain circumstances, yes. "Dishonorable suicide" is considered both an act of cowardice and a way of robbing those who depend upon the suicidal person for support. Someone who attempts it can be held liable by one's family or one's business partners. Attempted suicide in the military is viewed especially harshly; the general attitude is if you're going to kill yourself, you should at least go out and try to take as many of the enemy with you as you can.

What is the most common / are the most common methods of committing suicide?
Honorable suicide in the commission of Penance is traditionally done by seppuku, but such "mortal Penances" haven't been done in years. In wartime, Kawaiian soldiers are often seen as suicidally brave; we consider getting oneself killed in the act of defending your comrades to be the greatest honor.

What are the primary causes known for suicide?
Various. There aren't any predominate ones, but Kawaiians are infamous for their devotion to family and personal honor, and such devotion can often be found at the root of most suicidal acts.

Is suicide disproportionately linked to an ethnic group, social class, or sex?
Kawaiians are culturally homogenous. Suicide by women is much less heard of than by men. Owing to our sex-segregated society, such acts are investigated and treated separately than suicides by men.

Are their any government schemes in place to try and prevent suicide, or otherwise help those that are suicidal?
The church does offer counseling for the disturbed in spirit. Such counseling is an extremely private affair, though, so it's not really publicized.

Are deaths by suicide in your nation recorded as separate from other acts of killing, such as accidental or murder? Yes.
How many deaths annually are attributed to suicide? Less than 100. We have excellent Debugging Centers.
As a percentage of annual deaths, how many are suicide? Too tiny to bother doing math about.
Do societal or legal notions of honor or duty have any impact upon suicide in your nation? Rarely, but yes. It is considered preferable to delete oneself than to live as a permanent captive.
Do religious organizations or cults have any impact upon suicide in your nation? No.
What is the general social attitude to suicide? It is for idiots who were too foolish to go to Debugging and have their mental conditions patched before they felt the need to do it.
Is assisted suicide permitted by law? Yes, but what kind of wimp needs help to do that?! All it takes to die, if someone doesn't have access to something faster and more noble, is to delete all of one's own data.
Is the attempt of suicide itself a criminal act? No, that's just silly.
What is the most common / are the most common methods of committing suicide? Jumping into an active smelting pit. Heat-related shutdown, and therefore unconsciousness, occurs within seconds. Since the body is in a smelting pit, it is quickly destroyed the rest of the way.
What are the primary causes known for suicide? 1. A glitch in which the "despair" or "feelings of worthlessness" part of the mind's self-esteem calculation process loses its floor (lowest level it should be able to get). This is simple to fix, but alas, its effects can make a person delude that going to Debugging is pointless. 2. Feelings of being trapped in a slavery-like situation. Failed raiders who have to keep jobs for too long are at risk of it. 3. Delusions of Invincibility. This is basically the opposite of #1. It leads the affected to do stupid things like stay in the way of SAMs or try to fight Leader Megatron. We class events of this sort as suicide because the outcome is so absolutely certain that no other objective makes any sense.
Is suicide disproportionately linked to an ethnic group, social class, or sex? Failed raiders who have a long string of losses are most at risk for suicide.
Are their any government schemes in place to try and prevent suicide, or otherwise help those that are suicidal? There are no special programs dedicated to suicide prevention in particular, but we have a VERY robust Debugging Center network that patches suicidality and every other glitch you can imagine. All you have to do to get a glitch-repair patch is walk in and say you need one, and the Center will code it up for you and apply it to your mind-code. This process is very easy for the customer, who is shut down (and therefore unconscious) during the process. When the patch is done, he is brought back online and is instantly free of the bothersome mental errors.

There is no stigma in using Debugging Center services. In fact, you will be stigmatized if you DO NOT take proper care of your mind-code, and may be forcibly taken in to Debugging for examination and patching if you seem to have obvious, major glitches like wanting to delete yourself.
