There is only one content rating system in Aikoland which is universally used for television, movies, and video games.

The ratings are extremely simple and merely correspond with the recommended minimum age group that the media may be appropriate for:
3
7
12
15
18

The 18 rating is the only one which is enforced by law, as it can contain pornographic materials, and, for television, news and most sports programming are exempt from being rated.

The Royal Ieskari Film and Television Board has 4 official ratings:

-E: Meaning for everyone, no warnings necessary. Mostly for children's programming, nature programming and religious shows.
-PG: Meaning parental guidance. Some cautions are to be taken for younger audiences. Includes violence, sexual innuendo and mild profanity.
-15+: Mature-rated content. Mostly reserved for blood and gore, mild sexual content, excessive profanity or usage of alcohol or cigarettes.
-AO: Adults-only content. This rating is given very rarely. Includes excessive blood and gore, graphic sexual content, hardcore drug use or gambling.

Content ratings for television in Gandoor was created in 1997 and utilizes the same rating system as used for video games, with the Gandoorese Television and Video Game Ratings Board managing and rating both mediums.

All television programming, with the exception of news and sports programming, must be rated prior to broadcast and the ratings must be displayed in the top left corner of the screen for twenty seconds during the start of a half-hour program. If a program lasts for longer than a half-hour, then the rating must be displayed again for every half-hour that the program lasts.

The ratings are simply a number which signifies the youngest age the programming has been deemed appropriate for:
5
10
12
15
20

The 12 rating is the newest one, having been added in 2003.

TurtleShroom censors films and most media on a broader scale and with more specific ratings than it does with television programming, which is a luxury good. Almost every TurtleShroomer alive owns a landline and a radio, but television consumption isn't anywhere near that.

Like with films, books, and music, all content is rated by the Board of Censors, which targets obscenity, sexual immorality, or swearing (etc.) without stifling criticism of the state or political dissent (etc.).

The ratings for television programming differ from films and are as follows:
  • PX - The content is religious, and thus uncensored.
  • S - Spooky. The content is regulated by the All Hallow's Eve Commission and is aired aproac.
  • H - Holy. The content was clean enough to not need censorship in the first place.
  • C - Children. The content is acceptable for human children ages eight and up, or turtles and mushrooms that have not reached sexual maturity.
  • GM - Gentlemen. The content is acceptable for adolescent humans and higher, or for turtles and mushrooms that have reached sexual maturity and are approaching mental maturity. While content may have been censored, themes deemed acceptable for television but not for children remain.
  • A - Adults. The content is acceptable for adult creatures. While the content has been censored in order to be deemed fit for television, the themes or purpose of the content neccesitate barring it from children.
  • U - Unholy. The television show is forbidden from distribution in TurtleShroom.

Rule concerning X, XX, and XXX content are the same as movies.

The Federal Ratings System covers television, movies, and video games. The system is run by the Federal Telecommunications Administration. Unlike other systems and ratings in other nations these ratings are guidelines only and have no legal force, however all television shows are required to show the rating at the beginning of the program.

NR - Not Rated: Newscasts, general tv shows
GA - General Audiences: Educational shows & games, and child shows, movies, & games
A - Adolescents: Shows, games and movies targeted at adolescents
M - Mature: Shows, games and movies targeted at mature audiences
R - Restricted: These are shows, movies, and games that have been banned. (This is the only rating that holds force of law)

TV Ratings? Well, we have a formula for those and then average it out and then add 1.
For example, the TV show "Descent to Hokkaido" has a rating of 12
Profanity: 15
Discrimination: 7
Drugs: 4
Fear: 10
Gambling: 4
Sex: 12
Violence: 13
Online: 10
P.S: Our ratings are much lower compared to other nations due to our different values. So, one TV show that could be rated 16 in Europe could be rated as 12 in our lands.

Board of Film Censors

Board of Film Censors rates cinematic programmes and films in order to advise of their suitability to certain groups of people. It is a branch of the Lord Chancellour's Office which exercises the Sovereign's Royal Prerogative of permitting publications to be printed (imprimatur) or shewn (ostendatur).

RATINGS
O: Universal or general exhibition (omnibus ostendatur)
S: Suggested exhibition only to boys over the age of 12 and girls over the age of 13. (suademus)
R: Restricted exhibition for men over the age of 18 and women over the age of 21. (restringatur)
M: Exhibition not advised (monemus)
P: Exhibition proscribed (prohibetur)

All films, unless educational, sporting, live, musical or shewing a religious service must be submitted on tape to the Board of Film, Drews House, Lymgate, with a two week minimum processing period. If approved, a certificate is issued which must be shewn prior to the shewing of the film in a cinema. Such a certificate is either an omnibus ostendatur, Latin for 'let it be shewn for all', a restringatur, Latin for 'let it be restricted (for some people), or a prohibetur, Latin for 'it is prohibited'. General films on religion and faith must pass through the ecclesiastical censors and receive a nihil obstat and ostendi potest before the Board will issue ostendatur. The Board may for works rated O also issue a suademus, 'we recommend', suggesting that the programme should only be shewn to boys over the age of 12 and girls over the age of 13. Similarly, for programmes rated R, a 'monemus, 'we advise' may be issued warning that the programme ought not be shewn at all, but does not forbid it like a prohibetur.

Restricted and prohibited exhibition is legally enforced for cinemas but not for private viewing. Advisory exhibition ratings are not legally enforced, however many cinemas enforce them for public decency.

In Draycora, such ratings are created by the provinces, and sometimes they are more and less strict. The most typical rating, almost all provinces have is:
K (0+) - General (kaiiki) - This rating is suitable for all ages.
L (6+) - Children (lapset) - From the age of 6, this program may be watched.
N (13+) - Teenager (nuoret) - Audience 13 years old or above are allowed to watch the program.
A (18+) - Adults (Aikuinen) - Audience 18 years old or above are allowed to watch the program.

Sometimes there are still ratings with a 16 mark

In the Free Republics, governments are prohibited from mandating any sort of television ratings due to our constitutional protection of freedom of speech and the television industry has never standardized any rating system. Most networks do not utilize content ratings and even networks that did use them are largely getting rid of them as there has been a backlash against anything that even seems like self-censorship of entertainment in recent years.

Although we had a pre-existing rating system for a long time, we had changed it in 2019.

The Ratings go as Follows:

Y - Which is for Younger Children (Think PBS kids or other shows for a young audience)
B (Börn)- Which is for older kids and may contain cartoon violence (Think Tom and Jerry)
A (Allt) - Which is made for the general public, but may contain darker themes (Think PG)
G (Gróft) - Also can be watched by anyone, but contains heavy elements of violence, harsh language, etc (PG-13)
F ( Fullorðin) - Are movies with heavy amounts of violence, language, drug usage, and sex and other graphic material. People under 16 may watch, but only with an adult with them (R)
BK (Border Krosser) - Are movies that are in a grey-area between F and P. Usually art projects or movies with Graphic Sex Scenes that aren't just there for the viewers' pleasure and actually are relevant to the story. It is legal for someone under 16 to view it, but only with parental consent.
K (Klám) - Pornographic Material. Illegal to view if under 16 (but nobody really does anything about it anyway)
O (Ólöglegt) - Just plain illegal stuff like snuff films or films that feature real, graphic, felonies. These films are only allowed to be seen in a court-of-law as evidence of a crime. Any other viewing can get you arrested.

Note that this applies to TV, Movies, and Video Games. Books, Radio, and other forms of media are not rated.

There are no rating systems at all in Radiatia.

There was an attempt by the State of Vatfer to introduce a ratings/censorship system to prevent violent films, television and video games falling into the hands of minors. In an unprecedented move, the state government was sued by a video game publisher and the case made it to the Supreme Court.

In the landmark ruling, Xika Games vs. The State of Vatfer, the Supreme Court sided with the former, stating that censoring or rating media for any reason other than national security, including having an age-based rating system, conflicted with Radiatians' constitutional right to freedom of expression.

POGCMAG System

Postby Pome and Granacia » Sat May 18, 2019 2:22 am

In Pome and Granacia, shows have to be presented to the POGCBMAG (Pome and Granacia Board of Media Age Ratings) to be given a rating following the POGCMAG system. They are:

0 - All ages can watch this safely. Often given to shows for young children and educational shows.
9 - Certain topics/words in the show or movie can be offensive. An example of a show getting the 9 rating is The Magic School Bus, due to the word 'anus' being used in one of the episodes.
13 - This show or movie has some elements which are not meant for young children, like gore or sexual activity.
17 - This show or movie has elements which could be disturbing to people under and even above 17. Only a handful of channels allow this type of content on their network.
