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.

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.

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.
