Does your nation at this point in your timeline currently use slaves? Yes, slavery is used, though under the guise of indentured servitude.
Has your nation used slaves in the past? Yes, slavery has existed since the dawn of the Freehold of Messeren, and has lasted through the numerous incarnations of the state.
Are/were your slaves owned by the state or can they be bought, sold, traded and captured by individuals and groups? Up until recently, anyone captured by slavers was recognised as a slave, however it is now illegal to kidnap people and turn them into slaves. This law however does appear it might be changed soon.
Are your slaves consisting of a specific race, gender or other classification? Is there a mix? Or can anyone be enslaved, including your dominant population? Originally, the only slaves consisted of those of other races that the Messyrene subjugated, however, when poor families sold children or other relatives into slavery also, there became a big market for Messyrene slaves, which are worth around 3x as more.
On average, how well are slaves treated in your nation? Quite well in actuality, there are some slaves treated terrible and some treated very well, but on average a slave's life could be worse. A slave, though lower in standing, usually has a better life than the lowest of freeborn.
If slavery is not in place, are there groups in your nation that want it to start? How influential are these groups? Are they deemed terrorists or on the other end, do they hold offices in government? N/A
If slavery is in place, are there groups that wish to abolish it? How influential are these groups? Are they deemed terrorists/rebels or do they hold offices in government? These groups do exist, however they are not influential at all. Government corruption has done its best to ensure that no one with a strong opposition to slavery makes it in to an office of importance.
Is there a limit on how many slaves one can own? No, if you can pay for one you can buy one.
Is it illegal to kill or rape a slave? No, slaves are property and one can do what they wish with them.
What happens if a slave kills a master? If a slave kills their master, they are crucified (no religious context, it's simply an effective method), as well as beaten, burnt, flogged and eventually killed. All other slaves are then re-sold at lowest price.
Does your nation run a slave breeding program? (i,e, pairing strength with strength for manual labour slaves, beauty with beauty for sex slaves) Yes, slaves who are wanted for building are mated with other strong slaves to produce naturally strong offspring (if the offspring isn't as intended it is usually sold), slaves who are desired for sexual duty are paired with other attractive slaves.
Do slaves outnumber freemen and freewomen? How many slaves are there compared to each freeborn? Yes, on average there are three slaves for every free person.
Have there been slave rebellions of major note that have caused significant issue? Yes, numerous times, none recently however. Usually slave rebels take control of an area of countryside or a small town but are usually and swiftly crushed. All rebels are crucified.
Finally, is there anyone in your nation who by law cannot be enslaved? Not really. Numerous times, especially in civil wars when imperial brother fights sister and the like, the victor if kind will enslave their defeated relative personally, if cruel they will just be auctioned off in the market. The price for a slave with royal blood in them is exponential.
Are there any other notes on slavery (or the lack of it), in your nation not covered by questions above that you wish to share? No.

Does your nation at this point in your timeline currently use slaves? No.
Has your nation used slaves in the past? No, not at any accepted capacity.
Are/were your slaves owned by the state or can they be bought, sold, traded and captured by individuals and groups? All slaves stepping foot on our land are instantly emancipated.
Are your slaves consisting of a specific race, gender or other classification? Is there a mix? Or can anyone be enslaved, including your dominant population? N/A
On average, how well are slaves treated in your nation? All slaves stepping foot on our land are instantly emancipated.
If slavery is not in place, are there groups in your nation that want it to start? How influential are these groups? Are they deemed terrorists or on the other end, do they hold offices in government? There are no such groups except on fringe internet forums and if there were they would be extremely unpopular.
If slavery is in place, are there groups that wish to abolish it? How influential are these groups? Are they deemed terrorists/rebels or do they hold offices in government? N/A
Is there a limit on how many slaves one can own? Having even one slave is grounds for exile, a life sentence or a lynching.
Is it illegal to kill or rape a slave? Yes.
What happens if a slave kills a master? They are hailed as heroes.
Does your nation run a slave breeding program? (i,e, pairing strength with strength for manual labour slaves, beauty with beauty for sex slaves) No. We tend to brutally destroy nations that run slave breeding programs.
Do slaves outnumber freemen and freewomen? How many slaves are there compared to each freeborn? No. Due to brutal zero tolerance policies, sapient trafficking is almost non-existent. There might be like, a few hundred sapient trafficking victims stashed away somewhere.
Have there been slave rebellions of major note that have caused significant issue? No.
Finally, is there anyone in your nation who by law cannot be enslaved? That would be everyone.
Are there any other notes on slavery (or the lack of it), in your nation not covered by questions above that you wish to share? Death to the slaver.

Does your nation at this point in your timeline currently use slaves? Oh yes.
Has your nation used slaves in the past? Not officially, but pretty much.
Are/were your slaves owned by the state or can they be bought, sold, traded and captured by individuals and groups? Sure, we treat our citizens as subhuman commodities anyway, so we'll lend them out like cattle.
Are your slaves consisting of a specific race, gender or other classification? Is there a mix? Or can anyone be enslaved, including your dominant population? Everyone outside the elite council is a worthless maggot, and can and will be exploited.
On average, how well are slaves treated in your nation? As shit as possible.
If slavery is not in place, are there groups in your nation that want it to start? How influential are these groups? Are they deemed terrorists or on the other end, do they hold offices in government? Hah, like we allow focus groups..
If slavery is in place, are there groups that wish to abolish it? How influential are these groups? Are they deemed terrorists/rebels or do they hold offices in government? All opposition to state ideology are institutionalised.
Is there a limit on how many slaves one can own? Hell no, more the merrier.
Is it illegal to kill or rape a slave? Criminal activity does extend out to the welfare or projection of citizens. They don't matter,
What happens if a slave kills a master? Public torture.
Does your nation run a slave breeding program? (i,e, pairing strength with strength for manual labour slaves, beauty with beauty for sex slaves) Yes. It is beneficial for people to be the best at who they are/what they do.
Do slaves outnumber freemen and freewomen? How many slaves are there compared to each freeborn? Hahaha. Free people? Oh, oh you...
Have there been slave rebellions of major note that have caused significant issue? A couple of people try to 'raise their voice', but we silence them pretty quick.
Finally, is there anyone in your nation who by law cannot be enslaved? Everyone can be enslaved except the grand eternal leader.
Are there any other notes on slavery (or the lack of it), in your nation not covered by questions above that you wish to share? Paid labour is a sign of a weak nationstate that doesn't have what it takes to be all powerful.

Does your nation at this point in your timeline currently use slaves?
Yes.

Has your nation used slaves in the past?
Yes.

Are/were your slaves owned by the state or can they be bought, sold, traded and captured by individuals and groups?
They can be bought and sold, but commerce isn't a well-developed concept in this society.

Are your slaves consisting of a specific race, gender or other classification? Is there a mix? Or can anyone be enslaved, including your dominant population?
Most of our slaves are primitive Germanic tribal people... just like ourselves. They are the spoils of war and prizes for bravery.

On average, how well are slaves treated in your nation?
Very poorly.

If slavery is not in place, are there groups in your nation that want it to start? How influential are these groups? Are they deemed terrorists or on the other end, do they hold offices in government?
N/A.

If slavery is in place, are there groups that wish to abolish it? How influential are these groups? Are they deemed terrorists/rebels or do they hold offices in government?
Nope.

Is there a limit on how many slaves one can own?
There is no legal limit: you can own as many as you capture. But it is traditional to kill your slaves at summer solstice, so you probably can't amass that many.

Is it illegal to kill or rape a slave?
As long as it is your own slave, it is perfectly legal (and culturally mandatory) to kill your slave. Slaves are also naturally vessels for sexual gratification, which we regard as a natural reward for our power and dominance in our sphere of influence.

What happens if a slave kills a master?
That rarely happens, but when it does, we execute him. We usually don't shed many tears for the deceased master, because he deserved to die as he wasn't vigilant enough to keep his own property from killing him. However, if the slave killed a master who was in infancy or otherwise in a position of vulnerability, the slave can expect a painful, protracted death, both as punishment and deterrent to such behaviour.

Does your nation run a slave breeding program? (i,e, pairing strength with strength for manual labour slaves, beauty with beauty for sex slaves)
We don't engage in much production, preferring instead to raid and burglarize. Slaves thus have little use to us, other than as trophies of our battle prowess.

Do slaves outnumber freemen and freewomen? How many slaves are there compared to each freeborn?
Sometimes slaves do outnumber us, in which case they are massacred to prevent them from posing a threat to us.

Have there been slave rebellions of major note that have caused significant issue?
Our culture encouraged us to repress the (very human) emotions of our slaves, and constantly keep them in a state of abject terror. Slave rebellions do happen from time to time, but they never learn our secrets, and flesh never fends off steel.

Finally, is there anyone in your nation who by law cannot be enslaved?
Generally speaking, we don't enslave our own people. However, voluntary surrender of freedom do happen from time to time, to a person rendering an enormous favour to oneself. This mostly happens in live-saving situations that placed the person saving in mortal danger.

Are there any other notes on slavery (or the lack of it), in your nation not covered by questions above that you wish to share?
While homosexual attraction between males are deemed unproductive in our society, it is perfectly permissible between a master and a slave, regarded not as a relationship of affection but of assertion.

Does your nation at this point in your timeline currently use slaves? Yes, enslavement of non-Sidh sapients is allowed (in that it isn't explicitly banned), though not exactly widespread.
Has your nation used slaves in the past? For most of it's history. Before the Age of War, slavery did not exist in the Imperium, having been abolished in pre-Sidh societies for so long that neither the Emperor nor other authorities even deemed it necessary to explicitly outlaw it. This lack of legal status or legal tradition pertaining to slavery led to it's return in the much darker, violent age that followed the ravages of the Age of War.
Are/were your slaves owned by the state or can they be bought, sold, traded and captured by individuals and groups? The slaves are owned by a minority of powerful and affluent citizens. Since slave trading is considered a disreputable occupation, it is strictly forbidden for a Sidh to personally engage in any form of slave capture or trade or directly profit from such enterprises. Slave catchers and traders are hence exclusively human or alien. A Sidh may, however, own slaves or give them away to a different master, provided no monetary return is gained.
Are your slaves consisting of a specific race, gender or other classification? Is there a mix? Or can anyone be enslaved, including your dominant population? Any non-Sidh is considered fair game irrespective of race or sex. Humans are obviously the most popular, being aesthetically the most accustomed to, weaker than the average Sidh, and docile enough to be little trouble to keep in submission.
On average, how well are slaves treated in your nation? Better than free non-Sidhae, in fact. Sidh masters have a vested interest in keeping their slaves healthy, well-dressed and reasonably happy, because their appearance and performance reflects directly on their status. A malnourished and mistreated slave cannot and will not work properly, where a happy and well-treated slave will often himself be eager to please his master with a job well done.
If slavery is not in place, are there groups in your nation that want it to start? How influential are these groups? Are they deemed terrorists or on the other end, do they hold offices in government? n/a
If slavery is in place, are there groups that wish to abolish it? How influential are these groups? Are they deemed terrorists/rebels or do they hold offices in government? There are certainly a lot of human activists and even some Sidh extremists who want slavery abolished. Most Sidhae don't care either way - most will never rise to gain the vast estates and wealth necessary to keep domestic servants, nor are they particularly bothered about the fate of those not of their species.
Is there a limit on how many slaves one can own? Technically, no. It is, however, rarely more than two dozen even for the most powerful Sidh lords and ladies. Since most domestic chores can be performed faster and better by robots at a fraction of the cost of keeping a slave, owning slaves is really largely a matter of flaunting status, so owning a large number of servants is bound to be frowned upon as wasteful excess and a tasteless display of vanity and arrogance, achieving the exact opposite of what the slaveholders typically desire. Not to mention that it may invite unhealthy attention from Domestic Security and the State Revenue Service, the authorities being curious to find out where all that money spent on slaves is coming from, a question many slaveholding Sidhae would much rather leave unanswered.
Is it illegal to kill or rape a slave? The slave is the master's property, and the master may do what he fancies with it. Killing slaves for no good reason, however, is frowned upon since it sets a poor example. Likewise, sexual activity with members of inferior species, consensual or not, is also frowned upon as un-Sidh.
What happens if a slave kills a master? Then the slave is punished, obviously - most usually in some exceptionally gruesome and terrifying manner to make an example of him.
Does your nation run a slave breeding program? (i,e, pairing strength with strength for manual labour slaves, beauty with beauty for sex slaves) No. In fact, the very notion of slaves being eugenically bred is offensive to Sidhae - not because they would find the idea of breeding people like cattle repulsive, but because eugenic breeding is what separates them, free and trueborn citizens of the Imperium, from the vulgar dysgenic rabble of ignorant uncivilized brutes that the slaves come from.
Do slaves outnumber freemen and freewomen? How many slaves are there compared to each freeborn? No. Slaves make up a small minority of the Imperium's population, and Sidhae are eager to keep it that way. Slave labour is really inefficient, and most menial work can be done by robots anyway, so there's no need for a large population of potential rebels.
Have there been slave rebellions of major note that have caused significant issue? No. Because slaves are relatively few and never kept together in any significant numbers, they have little means to stage a rebellion of any scale.
Finally, is there anyone in your nation who by law cannot be enslaved? No Sidh may be enslaved, or for that matter allow himself to be enslaved. A Sidh who suffers enslavement rather than taking his own life, preferably along with a bunch of his captors, is no true Sidh and loses his status, being regarded an ordinary human under law from there on.
Are there any other notes on slavery (or the lack of it), in your nation not covered by questions above that you wish to share? A slave or freedman may never convert and become a Sidh, since their blood and character is deemed to be irrepairably tainted with servility. A true Sidh values his freedom over his life, so someone who has chosen to live as a slave for any length of time is deemed servile by nature and therefore unfit to be a Sidh. A freeborn child of a slave or freedman may convert, but their family background may cause some difficulties.
Freedom doesn't mean being able to do as one please, but rather not to do as one doesn't please.

A fool sees religion as the truth. A smart man sees religion as a lie. A ruler sees religion as a useful tool.

Does your nation at this point in your timeline currently use slaves? No, though certain styles of rent require labour by the tenant, a remnant of the mediaeval feudal system of open fields.
Has your nation used slaves in the past? Yes; men,women and children were sold to enable them to survive. This practice died out in the 15th to 16th centuries and was made illegal in the 19th century.
Are/were your slaves owned by the state or can they be bought, sold, traded and captured by individuals and groups? They were owned by the lord of the manor, or members of the aristocracy, the only people who were allowed to keep slaves. They were not able to be sold to other people and slaves were able to be freed following a number of years service.
Are your slaves consisting of a specific race, gender or other classification? Is there a mix? Or can anyone be enslaved, including your dominant population? Usually, men and boys were most often slaves, as they were generally stronger than the women. Slaves were generally individuals from poor families of the dominant Anglo-Saxon population, however a few were from other walks of life, usually sold into slavery as punishment for crimes.
On average, how well are slaves treated in your nation? Their treatment differed according to their owner. It was illegal to torture slaves, or to make them do excessively strenuous or tiresome work, though many lords invariably did. Slaves were also required to be freed after an agreed date at the time of purchase.
If slavery is not in place, are there groups in your nation that want it to start? How influential are these groups? Are they deemed terrorists or on the other end, do they hold offices in government? No.
If slavery is in place, are there groups that wish to abolish it? How influential are these groups? Are they deemed terrorists/rebels or do they hold offices in government? Some people want to abolish serfdom completely, though as both serfs and lords wish to retain it, no-one pays much attention to these activists.
Is there a limit on how many slaves one can own? In past times, a lord was able to keep as many slaves in his employ as long as the slaves did not replace the labour of the serfs, or result in a serf's eviction.
Is it illegal to kill or rape a slave? Yes
What happens if a slave kills a master? He was charged with petty treason, drawn and hanged.
Does your nation run a slave breeding program? (i,e, pairing strength with strength for manual labour slaves, beauty with beauty for sex slaves) No
Do slaves outnumber freemen and freewomen? How many slaves are there compared to each freeborn? No: for every one thousand and five hundred freemen, there is probably one serf. Serfdom is dying out in villages with there being fewer than one hundred villages practising it remaining.
Have there been slave rebellions of major note that have caused significant issue? Not really
Finally, is there anyone in your nation who by law cannot be enslaved? No
Are there any other notes on slavery (or the lack of it), in your nation not covered by questions above that you wish to share?

Does your nation at this point in your timeline currently use slaves?

No. We are in fact vicious opponents of slavery.

Has your nation used slaves in the past?

Yes. Our current zeal in opposition to it is in part born of our shame.

Are/were your slaves owned by the state or can they be bought, sold, traded and captured by individuals and groups?

They were privately owned, could be bought and sold, traded, and so on.

Are your slaves consisting of a specific race, gender or other classification? Is there a mix? Or can anyone be enslaved, including your dominant population?

They tended to be of African or Caribbean ancestry, but there were also white slaves and others. These days we have no slaves.

On average, how well are slaves treated in your nation?

These days? Exceptionally well, considering we outright set them free.

If slavery is not in place, are there groups in your nation that want it to start? How influential are these groups? Are they deemed terrorists or on the other end, do they hold offices in government?

None that dare speak it aloud.

If slavery is in place, are there groups that wish to abolish it? How influential are these groups? Are they deemed terrorists/rebels or do they hold offices in government?

Abolition movements eventually led to the peaceful manumission of all slaves.

Is there a limit on how many slaves one can own?

Yes. You may own precisely none.

Is it illegal to kill or rape a slave?

Yes.

What happens if a slave kills a master?

We congratulate them, give them money, medals, cake, and so on.

Does your nation run a slave breeding program? (i,e, pairing strength with strength for manual labour slaves, beauty with beauty for sex slaves)

No. We are a Godly and civilized people.

Do slaves outnumber freemen and freewomen? How many slaves are there compared to each freeborn?

No, as we have no slaves.

Have there been slave rebellions of major note that have caused significant issue?

Many slaves rose up during the period when it was legal here. Today, they are held to be heroes.

Finally, is there anyone in your nation who by law cannot be enslaved?

Yes. A specific group known by law as "Everybody."

Are there any other notes on slavery (or the lack of it), in your nation not covered by questions above that you wish to share?

Massena actively and openly opposes the slave trade, to the point of outfitting and commissioning privateers.

The American Workers' Republic's' Official Statement on the issue of 'Slavery'





Does your nation at this point in your timeline currently use slaves?: No. The AWR (American Workers' Republics) prides itself in having eradicated chattel slavery in the past, and to have eradicated wage slavery in the present day following the establishment of the AWR.

Has your nation used slaves in the past?: Not in the AWR. Before the revolution the "American Bourgeoisie Republic" ( or the USA) made use of chattel slavery which was effectively outlawed following the 1st American Civil War. The US, however, retained wage slavery under the system of capitalism.

Are/were your slaves owned by the state or can they be bought, sold, traded and captured by individuals and groups?: They were bought and sold as products under the economic system of capitalism.

Are your slaves consisting of a specific race, gender or other classification? Is there a mix? Or can anyone be enslaved, including your dominant population?: The chattel slaves were predominantly African-American, while the wage slaves came of all shapes, colors and sizes.

On average, how well are slaves treated in your nation?: (See above.)

If slavery is not in place, are there groups in your nation that want it to start? How influential are these groups? Are they deemed terrorists or on the other end, do they hold offices in government?: We do not recognize any group within our nation that want chattel slavery back, not anymore anyways, but a large group of underground counter-revolutionaries want wage slavery back. They are considered terrorists.

Finally, is there anyone in your nation who by law cannot be enslaved?: Nobody can be owned by anyone legally, we are human beings, not products to be shuffled around and to be exploited by for resources.

Does your nation at this point in your timeline currently use slaves? Yes, but we prefer to call them "servants".

Has your nation used slaves in the past? Yes, for centuries.

Are/were your slaves owned by the state or can they be bought, sold, traded and captured by individuals and groups? No slaves are currently owned by the state, but they may be sold, bought etc. by individuals and groups, like a private citizen purchasing from a servant market.

Are your slaves consisting of a specific race, gender or other classification? Is there a mix? Or can anyone be enslaved, including your dominant population? There is no specific race for servitude. Anyone can be put into servitude, but that's rare. Usually people sell themselves into it or sell their children into it.

On average, how well are slaves treated in your nation? Extremely well, they're considered a luxury item and can be symbols of status,

If slavery is not in place, are there groups in your nation that want it to start? How influential are these groups? Are they deemed terrorists or on the other end, do they hold offices in government? N/A.

If slavery is in place, are there groups that wish to abolish it? How influential are these groups? Are they deemed terrorists/rebels or do they hold offices in government? There are some groups that see it as an abomination, but they're not against the idea of people willing themselves into a paid permanent servitude, so long as that person can technically exit their role any time they want.

Is there a limit on how many slaves one can own? Yes. Above 10 servants requires a special permit, and to have over 100 requires servant market status even if they're not technically for sale. This is just for better tracking of servants.

Is it illegal to kill or rape a slave? Yes, highly illegal to murder a slave. Rape is also illegal, but rare as consent is commonly given without issue.

What happens if a slave kills a master? They're tried before a court for murder, like anyone else.

Does your nation run a slave breeding program? (i,e, pairing strength with strength for manual labour slaves, beauty with beauty for sex slaves) The nation itself does not, but servant markets only serve to breed and cultivate servants of beauty, poise, and extreme sexual aptitude. Manual labor for servants is an outrage.

Do slaves outnumber freemen and freewomen? How many slaves are there compared to each freeborn? No, free peoples outnumber them greatly as they can be pricey; typically a middle class family might only have one servant, and lower classes will have none.

Have there been slave rebellions of major note that have caused significant issue? No.

Finally, is there anyone in your nation who by law cannot be enslaved? Yes, foreign nations can opt into trade agreements that make it impossible for their citizens to become servants. Servants are accounted for by their credentials and nation of origin.

Are there any other notes on slavery (or the lack of it), in your nation not covered by questions above that you wish to share? Netoraria has quotas in place for how many servants may be purchased by foreign nationals who will be removing them from the country. For example, Ganosia would have a current quota of 20,000 per annum.

Postby The Victory Corporation » Sat Apr 23, 2016 9:18 pm

Does your nation at this point in your timeline currently use slaves? No, and the Victory Corporation never intends to.
Has your nation used slaves in the past? We have not, but it is believed that our former parent nation used them for a time before the practice was abolished.
Are/were your slaves owned by the state or can they be bought, sold, traded and captured by individuals and groups? The Victory Corporation has never, and will never, sell slaves or support the selling of slaves. What slave trade does come through the Victory Corporation is cracked down upon with force.
Are your slaves consisting of a specific race, gender or other classification? Is there a mix? Or can anyone be enslaved, including your dominant population? Due to the highly illegal nature of the slave trade in the Victory Corporation, only the bravest of slavers will dare to abduct our citizens. Otherwise, we have seen all types of people come through our territory and subsequently be freed when the slavers didn't do a good enough job of hiding their operation.
On average, how well are slaves treated in your nation? Poorly, at best.
If slavery is not in place, are there groups in your nation that want it to start? How influential are these groups? Are they deemed terrorists or on the other end, do they hold offices in government? There are undoubtedly groups that would like to start the slave industry, the stance of the government is firm and these groups have no power and no foothold within the government. If an individual who does support the slave industry exists within the Victory Corporation government, they will know to keep their personal beliefs quiet.
If slavery is in place, are there groups that wish to abolish it? How influential are these groups? Are they deemed terrorists/rebels or do they hold offices in government? Not applicable.
Is there a limit on how many slaves one can own? As slavery is illegal in the Victory Corporation, the limit is usually how many one can hide.
Is it illegal to kill or rape a slave? Yes, in addition to slavery in general being illegal.
What happens if a slave kills a master? The former slave may contact the Victory Corporation government or emergency services from any phone service and inform someone about their status as a slave and where the operation is or was being run.
Does your nation run a slave breeding program? (i,e, pairing strength with strength for manual labour slaves, beauty with beauty for sex slaves) Unknown, varies by slaver.
Do slaves outnumber freemen and freewomen? How many slaves are there compared to each freeborn? As slavery is illegal in the Victory Corporation, the ratio of slaves to free people will be very, very low.
Have there been slave rebellions of major note that have caused significant issue? Yes. Approximately three years ago a slave escaped the largest operation that has been recorded running within the Victory Corporation's borders. The slave was injured in their escape, and managed to find a lost cell phone. After dialing the emergency service line, they were too weak to do more than sputter out a few words. However, the controllers on the other side of the line got the message and sent in Peacekeepers to sweep the area, where they found the slave operation packing up. Approximately 40 individuals were arrested for participating in human trafficking and sent to Forge, while approximately 400 slaves were freed and granted asylum in the Victory Corporation until their home nation could be contacted and their return arranged.
Finally, is there anyone in your nation who by law cannot be enslaved? Everyone. The Victory Corporation does not, and never will support, slavery.
Are there any other notes on slavery (or the lack of it), in your nation not covered by questions above that you wish to share? No.
Strategy. Science. Superiority.

Terror is more effective than war. Science is the tool to gain prosperity. Prosperity is the key to success.
The Victory Corporation is a tech-savvy nation with the goal of uniting the world by any means necessary. While small, TVC is ruthless and hyper efficient, producing technology as advanced as it can make to counter weaknesses, real or imagined, in other areas.

Does your nation at this point in your timeline currently use slaves? No.
Has your nation used slaves in the past? Slavery was legal from our founding in 1587 until 1783.
Are/were your slaves owned by the state or can they be bought, sold, traded and captured by individuals and groups? Any official capturing, selling, or trading of slaves in Gandoor was done under the supervision of the government.
Are your slaves consisting of a specific race, gender or other classification? Is there a mix? Or can anyone be enslaved, including your dominant population? Under the law at the time, no citizen of Gandoor could be enslaved, nor could any of the native people of Gandoor be enslaved, so all slaves came from foreign countries, predominantly East Asian countries.
On average, how well are slaves treated in your nation? Slaves were generally well-treated, due to numerous laws and regulations regarding the treatment of slavery.
If slavery is not in place, are there groups in your nation that want it to start? How influential are these groups? Are they deemed terrorists or on the other end, do they hold offices in government? Currently no one in Gandoor wishes to reestablish slavery.
If slavery is in place, are there groups that wish to abolish it? How influential are these groups? Are they deemed terrorists/rebels or do they hold offices in government? N/A
Is there a limit on how many slaves one can own? Slavery is abolished, so the limit is 'zero'. However, when it was legal and practiced, the limit for ownership was two slaves for every adult male, three for every adult female, and two for every child. (So, for example, a family consisting of a husband, wife, a twelve year old son, and a three year old daughter could have owned a maximum of nine slaves)
Is it illegal to kill or rape a slave? It was starting in 1637, following an incident where twenty-two female slaves from China, whose ages ranged from 14 to 23, were brutally raped and murdered by their owner and several of his friends and family members.
What happens if a slave kills a master? They would have been tried for murder, same as anyone who kills someone else.
Does your nation run a slave breeding program? (i,e, pairing strength with strength for manual labour slaves, beauty with beauty for sex slaves) We did not.
Do slaves outnumber freemen and freewomen? How many slaves are there compared to each freeborn? While there are currently no slaves in Gandoor, at the height of slavery in our nation (around 1750), there were about 19,000 slaves and a free population of around 3.2 million.
Have there been slave rebellions of major note that have caused significant issue? No
Finally, is there anyone in your nation who by law cannot be enslaved? Since slavery is abolished in Gandoor, no one on Gandoorese soil can be enslaved.
Are there any other notes on slavery (or the lack of it), in your nation not covered by questions above that you wish to share? The government of Gandoor does not recognize any claims of ownership of another sentient being and any person who is enslaved is regarded as being free upon entering Gandoorese territory and will not be returned to their 'owner'.

Does your nation at this point in your timeline currently use slaves? Of course.
Has your nation used slaves in the past? Of course.
Are/were your slaves owned by the state or can they be bought, sold, traded and captured by individuals and groups? They're private property. That said, the government is in charge of the vast majority of production (via the Cloning Centers), not due to decree, but because the Centers are known for their excellent quality control. Slaves not from a Center are referred to as "wild" and sell for lower rates. Such slaves are usually obtained as opportunistic captures, though they can also be part of the war booty from an invasion.
Are your slaves consisting of a specific race, gender or other classification? Is there a mix? Or can anyone be enslaved, including your dominant population? Anyone can be enslaved if they can be captured, but over 99% of our livestock is made up of supposedly-sapient biologicals. The other 1% is what we call metalstock: enslaved Decepticons.
On average, how well are slaves treated in your nation? Not too well. The work is hard and relentless. Of course, there are some exceptions on both sides of the scale, with some overseers being far too harsh on the slaves and others being too soft to get a decent amount of productivity out of them.
If slavery is not in place, are there groups in your nation that want it to start? How influential are these groups? Are they deemed terrorists or on the other end, do they hold offices in government?
If slavery is in place, are there groups that wish to abolish it? How influential are these groups? Are they deemed terrorists/rebels or do they hold offices in government? Yes. They're not influential at all. They are not allowed to hold any government positions. As for terrorists? Since they usually want to abolish slavery by sending all of the livestock through Biological Rendering and turning it into dead fertilizer, the slaves usually think of them as terrorists! (Here, our "abolitionists" reason that biologicals are too inferior to even bother keeping alive, and that they're more useful as fertilizer or biofuel.)
Is there a limit on how many slaves one can own? No.
Is it illegal to kill or rape a slave? No, they are property and their owners can do whatever they want with them.
What happens if a slave kills a master? A puny unarmed humANT? Kill a Decepticon 20x his height and 100x his weight?! If a slave managed to do that, we would probably try to get him to accept citizenship (and mind-transfer to a Decepticon body), because he's obviously an absolute genius to figure out how to manage to do it! He would be quite an asset in the Military! Most slaves are taught from "birth" that the Decepticon is the ultimate lifeform and is what to aspire to be, so he would likely sign on, too!
Does your nation run a slave breeding program? (i,e, pairing strength with strength for manual labour slaves, beauty with beauty for sex slaves) All domesticated slaves are produced at the Cloning Centers from the latest version of the Approved DNA Codec for their species. Wild-caught humans are simply sterilized so that they can't get their inferior Code into our carefully-designed livestock.
Do slaves outnumber freemen and freewomen? How many slaves are there compared to each freeborn? Oh, absolutely not. By law, there must not be more slaves than there are Decepticons. Any extras that pop up are culled.
Have there been slave rebellions of major note that have caused significant issue? No.
Finally, is there anyone in your nation who by law cannot be enslaved? No. Technically, if someone manages to get a hack program into Leader Megatron, they can take him and stick him in a mine. That said, the chance of getting Megatron to download anything fishy into his mind-boards is 10,000x lower than the chance of a snowball in a slag pit.
Are there any other notes on slavery (or the lack of it), in your nation not covered by questions above that you wish to share? Enslaving a Decepticon requires installing a hack-program that controls his motions. Otherwise, he will either fight to the death, or failing that, commit suicide to avoid enslavement. Typically, such programs are spread using guile, though they can be forcibly installed via direct physical means as well.

It's also notable that while many Decepticons will grab any biological they think they can sell and will have no qualms about doing so, they will form vigilante mobs and attack anyone caught hacking Decepticons, disseminating hack programs meant to work on the Decepticon OS, or dealing in Decepticon slaves. Like many acts here, "legal" and "accepted by society" can be two very different things.

As for why it's even legal for Decepticons to enslave each other, it is this way for a very specific purpose: to motivate everyone to keep their anti-virus up to date. Updating had fallen back, causing a threat to national security. Leader Megatron, figuring that it was better for these people to end up as the property of other Decepticons than it would be for them to fall to foreign hacking attempts, essentially declared open season on them. This has indeed motivated most people to upgrade their anti-viruses, and taken most of those who still didn't do it off of the streets so that foreign hackers cannot turn them into weapons against us. The Leader promises that the enslavement of Decepticons will be re-banned once anti-virus readiness reaches 98%, though there will be no freeing of those who have already been taken.
No war RPs; no open RPs.
