A few of these aren't things that exist to be either in our nation (or world, for that matter), but I'll answer as best as I can.

Defamation: Legal
Foreign Trade: Legal
Emigration: Legal
Sex Trafficking: Legal
Squatting (As in occupying an area): Legal
Guns: Legal
Cocaine: N/A
Public Protesting: Legal
Driving with 1 or no hands on the wheel: N/A
Voting (All Citizens): N/A
Feminism: Legal
Fighting (Physical): Legal
Tailgating (Gathering): Legal
Tailgating (Driving too close): N/A
Driving w/o licence plate: N/A
Surfing: N/A
Domestic Violence: Legal, but frowned upon
Weapons of Mass Destruction: Legal
Dissection (Any Type): Legal
Television: N/A


As for an explanation of the individual N/A's:

7. We haven't discovered cocaine yet. If and when we do, it will likely be legal (we've already legalized far, far stronger drugs with more extreme effects.)
9. Cars haven't been invented here. The closest thing is carriages... which don't have steering wheels.
10. Voting hasn't been invented. By anyone in our world.
14. There aren't enough carriages on the roads simultaneously for anyone to bother deciding about that... one can only get so close before the horses stop anyways.
15. Carriages don't have license plates. In any country in our world.
16. We haven't discovered surfing.
20. Television hasn't been invented.

Freedom From Taxation, Government Size, Inclusiveness,

Recreational Drug Use, Rudeness, Taxation,
Weaponization, Youth Rebelliousness

We're just a large number of largely unrelated anarchist terror cells that worship an Argustrian witch goddess.
Some historical information not found in our factbooks... yet.

"It is high time for ballots, and not bullets. For bread and butter, not tanks treading on foreign streets. For reform, for schools, for more police on the beat, instead of building up a massive war machine used only to bully our neighbors. The only armed forces that the new New Othman needs are those which defend the nation itself from aggression. We don't need the trillions that we used to spend for that." - Udan Varcar

"Radical feminism in the west is less about womens liberation (and that's fair - women in the west have been largely liberated after all), and more about authoritarian thought policing." - Hirota

"The function of our social services is to discourage sedition." - Premier Bayazid Izmirek, 2005

Insufficient OP, iLock. This would be best just in your factbook or the Miscellaneous Worldbuilding Thread; either expand your OP if you re-create, post again in the MWBT, or post it in your factbook.
