Though blasphemy laws have been officially off the books for 20 years, many tribes have outright murdered members guilty of blasphemy in the past. Most tribal codes strictly prohibit blasphemy with the punishment being 5 years of hard labor.

Blasphemy laws are not stated by the National Constitution, but some people may try to discourage you from doing acts of blasphemy in certain provinces.

There are ostensibly no blasphemy laws.

Slandering or libelling Islam(the state religion)
is, however, considered hate speech;
Punishable by a mandatory education class in the community and/or up to 7 years imprisonment and/or up to an unlimited fine.

In the Sultanate of Sharifistan blasphemers are put in the stocks(if male) or lead around the streets to jeering crowds(considered a more lenient punishment, if female).

There no blasphemy laws in Civitas Libertas due to free speech.

Maximum punishment ranges from a large fine to 1 year in the city jail.

There are no laws on blasphemy. Atheism is state enforced and holding religious beliefs is grounds for extermination.

by Thermodolia
Blasphemy laws are federally banned, so there are no blasphemy laws in Thermodolia. Attempting to pass a blasphemy law is considered a felony and punishable up to 30 years.

There ain't no blasphemy laws in good ol' Skyhooked since the revolution, and any attempts to pass one would be thwarted by the Council and Overboss. No violence or something... they will be just deemed unconstitutional.

Zhouran is a secular nation with blasphemy laws simply being illegal and nonexistent. Plus the Spiritual Mandate, the native folk religion of the Kangyuli Zhouranese, is itself a secular 'religion' that doesn't really hold a concept of blasphemy.

Blasphemy in South Reinkalistan is considered to be a very grave crime. The Commission for Political Loyalty will investigate suspected blasphemers, and report them to spiritual authorities should they find any form of disrespect towards the nation's deity, Tosdoda. Following this, a show trial will be held and the offending party executed.

Blasphemy is strictly encouraged throughout the Tribes. Any ideology or sociopolitical figurehead incapable of taking an insult, challenge or question to their authority and reputation are likely to have difficulty gaining traction in public discourse compared to those with a sense of humor and repartee, especially given government incentives for publicly managed quality assurance programs.

If you can't take the heat, get off the pulpit, as they say in Outer Automobile Manufacturing and Furniture Sales.

Despite efforts from more Religious and Socially Conservative HUElavians, HUElavia does not have Blasphemy laws due to Free Speech laws allowing people to speak as they freely choose.

There are no blasphemy laws. That would be ridiculous. Sure, some cities and villages have laws against hate speech, but none of them go so far as being anti-blasphemy laws.

Neither the Federation of Lillorainen, nor any of its states, has any blasphemy laws, and also has no known history of ever having any.

There are no blasphemy laws in the Democratic Republic, as they would fall afoul of the inalienable right to the freedom of speech.

While the freedom of speech in our nation is not considered to be absolute (hate speech, which is specifically defined as 'any explicit or implicit calls for violence against an individual or group' is banned, for example), any actions of speech that one may consider 'blasphemous' (such as insulting someone's religious beliefs or insulting a religion as a whole) are not considered to be part of the reasonable restrictions upon the freedom of speech in our nation.
