International Civil Equality Index (ICEI)

Postby Neo Azati » Mon Nov 12, 2018 1:16 am

An independent organization within Nua-Asàiti has developed the International Civil Equality Index. It measures the relative civil rights, freedoms, and liberties within a country, breaking it down into several sub-categories as well as measuring civil rights in the nation as a whole.
This index was designed to show countries how their civil rights and equality stacks up in comparison to other countries, as well as areas to improve upon. In addition, it is publicly available so that international travelers, tourists, and businesspeople can know which countries are more likely to value their liberties based on various factors. The breakdown is as follows:

Racial Equality Score: 0-125
Gender Equality Score: 0-125
Disability Score: 0-125
LGBTQ Equality Score: 0-125 (Sexuality Subscore: 0-65, Gender Identity Subscore: 0-60)
Economic Score: 0-125 (Economic Parity Subscore: 0-70, Economic Opportunity Subscore: 0-55)
Political Freedom Score: 0-125
Immigration Opportunity Score: 0-100
Cultural Integrity Score: 0-100
Non-Resident Score: 0-50
Overall Score: 0-1000

While a higher overall score generally indicates a more fair, equal, and inclusive society as a whole, individual subscores will also be published (though not ranked) for specificity. A nation may rank highly in other areas, but treat its disabled citizens poorly, so while the overall score will be high, giving the nation a higher rank, the international community will still know of their shortcomings.
Of course, the organization responsible for the ICEI recognizes that authoritarian governments may use this index as a means to find more methods to exert control over its populace, but believes the index will do more good than harm. Any scores not filled out will be scored as a 0, thus lowering the overall score, though a note will be made in the record which scores were not able to be calculated. Note that this index also isn't indicative of quality of life, which is better measured by the Human Development Index, but rather equality of life. While a nation may score very highly on this index, they may underperform on other indices, such as the Democracy Index or the Economic Liberalization Index. Likewise, a nation that scores low on this index may score high on other indices.

⬤ Very Equal - These nations have high degrees of civil rights, freedoms, and liberty. This nation is very equal, and there is very little difference in treatment among different groups. Comparable nations are Iceland, Scotland, and Norway. (ICEI 900-1000)
(Racial: 125, Gender: 125, Disability: 125, LGBTQ: 120 (Sexuality: 62, Gender: 58), Economic: 124 (Parity: 69, Opportunity: 55), Political: 122, Immigration: 92, Culture: 100, Non-Resident: 50.)
Alinghi Federal-Democratic Republic is a world benchmark for civil equity. The only points docked from the Alinghi FDR's score are due to the law issuing protections and recognition of nonbinary identities having not yet been passed, the lack of recognition of plural marriage, the lack of integration between federal and cantonal term limits, and slight favoritism in the immigration process. The ICEI rates the Alinghi FDR as ⬤ Very Equal, with a slight weakness in Immigration Processes. Civil rights are seen as Not At Risk. The ICEI awards the Alinghi FDR with the ICEI Utopia Award, recognizing it as a nation among the elite few whose society and government strive more than anything to provide all people equal ground.

(Racial: 124, Gender: 124, Disability: 124, LGBTQ: 119 (Sexuality: 62, Gender: 57), Economic: 115 (Parity: 70, Opportunity: 45), Political: 125, Immigration: 99, Culture: 99, Non-Resident: 49.)
Erystan is almost perfect from the standpoint of civil rights; both the government and society provide equal ground for all citizens. Economic parity is almost perfect. The ICEI found almost no civil rights issues in Erystan, though a lack of a legal framework for marriage (though this extends to all marriages, and is seen by the ICEI more as a civil rights risk rather than a case of civil inequality) and slight social conservatism towards the LGBTQ+ community did dock a few points. The ICEI rates Erystan as ⬤ Very Equal, with a slight weakness in Economic Opportunity. Civil rights are seen as Not At Risk. The ICEI awards Erystan with the ICEI Utopia Award, recognizing it as a nation among the elite few whose society and government strive more than anything to provide all people equal ground.

(Racial: 125, Gender: 120, Disability: 125, LGBTQ: 120 (Sexuality: 60, Gender: 60), Economic: 120 (Parity: 66, Opportunity: 54), Political: 123, Immigration: 84, Culture: 99, Non-Resident: 50.)
Antaros has superb civil rights. However, the immigration process is not perfect and shows favoritism to the well-educated and able-bodied. Economic disparity is slightly high, but economic opportunities are plentiful, with no evidence of rigid socioeconomic classes. Additionally, there is a lack of recognition of plural marriage, though no persecution is known. The ICEI rates Antaros as ⬤ Very Equal, with slight weaknesses in Immigration and Economic Parity. Civil rights are seen as Not At Risk.

(Racial: 125, Gender: 125, Disability: 125, LGBTQ: 92 (Sexuality: 48, Gender: 44), Economic: 113 (Parity: 58, Opportunity: 55), Political: 123, Immigration: 96, Culture: 97, Non-Resident: 50.)
Xmara has superb civil rights, but protections for LGBTQ+ citizens are lacking. A lack of full extension of legal protections to LGBTQ+ citizens, as well as the societal and governmental invalidation of transgender and nonbinary persons, lowers its score considerably. Economic disparity is quite high between the richest and poorest citizens, though there isn't as much concentration of wealth and income at the top 1% as would be expected. The ICEI rates Xmara as ⬤ Very Equal, with weaknesses in LGBTQ+ Rights and Economic Parity. Civil rights are seen as Not At Risk.

(Racial: 116, Gender: 115, Disability: 118, LGBTQ: 124 (Sexuality: 64, Gender: 60), Economic: 111 (Parity: 66, Opportunity: 45), Political: 119, Immigration: 95, Culture: 96, Non-Resident: 48.) [REVISED: 13 Nov 2018, reason: updated formula]
Neo Azati, the home country of the ICEI, has superb civil rights, though economic opportunities are somewhat lacking, and some slight cultural conservatism can result in unwitting discrimination against non-native cultures. Between cultural clashes, an effective lack of cohesive political opposition, and a slight increase in income and wealth inequality with the recent economic growth, Nua-Asàiti falls short of the ICEI's benchmark. However, legislatively Nua-Asàiti sets a relative standard of civil equality, and despite its shortcomings, is among the top of the list. The ICEI rates Nua-Asàiti as ⬤ Very Equal, with slight weaknesses in Cultural Integrity and Economic Opportunity. Civil rights are seen as Not At Risk.

(Racial: 117, Gender: 124, Disability: 117, LGBTQ: 93 (Sexuality: 59, Gender: 34), Economic: 118 (Parity: 63, Opportunity: 55), Political: 113, Immigration: 86, Culture: 84, Non-Resident: 50.)
Normund has very good civil rights, with protections and societal views on race, gender, and disability exceeding the majority of nations. Political rights are strong, though there is some exclusion in who may run for office. Transgender and nonbinary persons are scarcely recognized, and though the government provides legal protections for transgender persons, transgender identities are classifed as a mental illness by the government, and the Normundic government has been known to call the TGNC community "irritating" for being vocal about their rights. Cultural integrity is not as respected as it should be, and the government is attempting to create a "native identity". Though not considered nationalism yet, the ICEI is keeping a close eye on this process. The ICEI rates Normund as ⬤ Very Equal, with weaknesses in Cultural Integrity and Transgender Rights. Civil rights are seen as At Slight Risk due to the attempt to create a "native identity" and the government's propensity to pushing back against vocal minority groups, as well as some Islamophobic stances on immigration. A Travel Advisory has been issued for transgender persons.


⬤ Equal - These nations have good civil rights, freedoms, and liberty, but there are some problems. This nation may have one or two scores in which they score poorly, but the government and society of this nation respect the rights of most people, for the most part. Comparable nations are Japan, Chile, and the United States. (ICEI 700-899)
(Racial: 106, Gender: 125, Disability: 111, LGBTQ: 111 (Sexuality: 65, Gender: 46), Economic: 108 (Parity: 68, Opportunity: 40), Political: 90, Immigration: 94, Culture: 96, Non-Resident: 49.) [REVISED: 13 Nov 2018, reason: updated formula]
Dreshand has very good civil rights, though a lack of a truly fair and representative presidential election, limitations on the recognition of the rights of transgender citizens, and the lack of full employment protections based on race do reduce full civil equality. Some economic difficulties for those in the working class and those with disabilities do exist, though on relative terms, it is much better in Dreshand than it is in most countries. The ICEI rates Dreshand as being ⬤ Equal, with slight weaknesses in Racial Discrimination, Transgender Rights and Political Representation. Civil rights are seen as Not At Risk.

(Racial: 111, Gender: 99, Disability: 109, LGBTQ: 106 (Sexuality: 62, Gender: 44), Economic: 108 (Parity: 53, Opportunity: 55), Political: 118, Immigration: 78, Culture: 98, Non-Resident: 49.)
Mahrenbach has very good civil equality but lacks enforcement of anti-discrimination laws. Private businesses are still allowed to do as they please, within reason, though in practice, little discrimination takes place. Some discrimination in the immigration does take place as well, though treatment of immigrants is much better than most countries. Transgender rights could be better, but active discrimination or oppression is not very common. Economic opportunity is excellent, and social welfare prevents the disabled and disadvantaged from being cast aside. The ICEI rates Mahrenbach as being ⬤ Equal, with slight weaknesses in Immigration, Transgender Rights and Gender Equality. Civil rights are seen as Not At Risk. Note: economic parity data was incomplete, and the score for economic parity may not be completely accurate.

(Racial: 120, Gender: 105, Disability: 115, LGBTQ: 108 (Sexuality: 53, Gender: 55), Economic: 112 (Parity: 64, Opportunity: 48), Political: 105, Immigration: 57, Culture: 87, Non-Resident: 50.)
Ryurik Rossiya has very good civil equality, though societal views on the equality of men and women are split. Hate crime legislation is sparse, but overall legal protections for minorities are very good. There is, however, a lack of enforcement of anti-discrimination laws protecting non-heterosexual persons. Currently, the most notable problem is in immigration rights, though the government of Ryurik Rossiya assures this is temporary, due to the sociopolitical climate. Also, though the government as a whole is representative of a people, the mere monarchal structure of the government reduces its connection to those outside the government and the elite. The ICEI rates Ryurik Rossiya as being ⬤ Equal, with slight weaknesses in Immigration, Cultural Integrity and Political Representation. Civil rights are seen as Not At Risk.

(Racial: 119, Gender: 112, Disability: 101, LGBTQ: 100 (Sexuality: 63, Gender: 37), Economic: 121 (Parity: 67, Opportunity: 54), Political: 111, Immigration: 70, Culture: 32, Non-Resident: 43.)
Thermodolia has very good civil rights for the most part, but some societal views on ethnic and gender minorities are highly conservative, and wage equality laws don't extend to women, the disabled, and transgender persons. Nonbinary identities are neither recognized legally nor culturally. Non-majority cultures are often stamped out or assimilated, and freedom of religion is lacking. However, protections based on ethnicity and gender are strong, political rights are relatively unimpeded, and economic opportunity is plentiful. The ICEI rates Thermodolia as being ⬤ Equal, with weaknesses in Cultural Integrity, Freedom of Religion, and Transgender Rights. Civil rights are seen as Not At Risk.

(Racial: 84, Gender: 98, Disability: 83, LGBTQ: 86 (Sexuality: 51, Gender: 35), Economic: 117 (Parity: 62, Opportunity: 55), Political: 93, Immigration: 91, Culture: 100, Non-Resident: 50.)
Rerkeo has very good civil rights for the most part, but no anti-discrimination laws exist for private employment, housing, and education. There aren't many societal boundaries in these areas- in fact, education is easily accessible to all citizens- but some regions within Rerkeo do have some continuing racism. While LGBTQ+ rights are largely protected in Rerkeo, nonbinary and gender nonconforming persons may find some societal pushback, as well as a lack of governmental support. Economic parity could be better, but economic opportunity is almost unrivaled. The only other thing the ICEI notes is the lack of an elected leader, though the legislative body is elected by the people. The ICEI rates Rerkeo as being ⬤ Equal, with weaknesses in Racial Protection, Support of the Disabled, and Transgender Rights. Civil rights are seen as Not At Risk.

(Racial: 125, Gender: 125, Disability: 125, LGBTQ: 15 (Sexuality: -25*, Gender: 40), Economic: 108 (Parity: 68, Opportunity: 40), Political: 74, Immigration: 90, Culture: 40, Non-Resident: 49.)
A m e n r i a is a mixed bag when it comes to civil rights. On one hand, racial equality, gender equality, and equality for disabled persons are perfect or near-perfect and set international standards. On the other hand, treatment of non-heterosexual persons and those who are not in government-recognized religious communities is egregious. Arrests and even executions on basis of religious affiliation and homosexuality are very common, and nonbinary persons are not recognized. The government even touts this as a positive aspect of society. Also notable, the government is not truly representative, and only polygyny is recognized, which poses the greatest civil rights risk of any treatment of plural marriage (slightly behind no recognition, as recognition of only polygyny typically accompanies high rates of exploitation of women and domestic abuse). The ICEI rates Amenria as ⬤ Equal, with egregious problems in LGBTQ+ Equality and Religious Freedom. Civil rights are seen as At Moderately High Risk due to the government's propensity to great maltreatment of those it deems "less than". Amenria also has an Urgent Travel Warning for LGBTQ+ persons and religious minorities.
*This is a rare case in which a subscore has a negative value. In this case, it is because not only were there no civil rights for this group, but active persecution of it as well.


⬤ Somewhat Unequal - These nations have some civil rights abuses, though there is some effort from the government or from the citizens to make the nation a more even playing ground. Some minority groups may be ostracized, or simply lack protections from the government. Comparable nations are Brazil, Russia, and Ukraine. (ICEI 500-699)
(Racial: 94, Gender: 117, Disability: 110, LGBTQ: 0 (Sexuality: 0, Gender: 0), Economic: 91 (Parity: 53, Opportunity: 38), Political: 45, Immigration: 93, Culture: 94, Non-Resident: 49.)
Cosmopolitan borovan has very good gender equality and support for the disabled, but racial tensions, and above all, a complete lack of protection or recognition of any LGBTQ+ citizens, make it somewhat unequal overall. Economic opportunities are sparse as well, and the government is not representative of the people. No outright civil rights abuses of LGBTQ+ citizens or tourists is known of in Cosmopolitan Borovan, but this is something the ICEI will keep a close eye on, as it can easily turn into a civil rights crisis. The ICEI rates Cosmopolitan Borovan as ⬤ Somewhat Unequal, with major problems in LGBTQ+ Rights, Economic Parity, Racial Equality, and Political Representation. Civil rights are seen as At Moderate Risk due to gaps in anti-discrimination law and the society's propensity to disfavor of minorities. A Travel Warning has been issued for all LGBTQ+ immigrants, transgender tourists, and married non-heterosexual tourists.

(Racial: 79, Gender: 92, Disability: 63, LGBTQ: 43 (Sexuality: 40, Gender: 3), Economic: 90 (Parity: 41, Opportunity: 49), Political: 85, Immigration: 84, Culture: 80, Non-Resident: 26.)
Shackley is a nation which has a notable difference between de facto and de jure civil equality. Legal protections tend to be disfavored, instead relying more on the assumption of civility from the majority of the society. Unfortunately, with racial tensions high following a recent military conflict, and with the value of productivity over human life, disabled persons and racial minorities get the short end of the stick. Additionally, both the government and the society of Shackley are discriminatory and even hostile towards transgender persons. Legal recognition of transgender and nonbinary persons' gender is unheard of, and there are much fewer legal protections as a result. Additionally, with the way the government and economy are structured, political representation is weak, and economic disparity is quite high. The ICEI rates Shackley as ⬤ Somewhat Unequal, with major problems in Transgender Rights, Economic Parity, Support for the Disabled, and Racial Equality. Civil rights are seen as At Minor Risk due to gaps in anti-discrimination law and the society's propensity to disfavor of minorities. Additionally, a Travel Warning has been issued for transgender persons.

(Racial: 43, Gender: 40, Disability: 25, LGBTQ: 36 (Sexuality: 18, Gender: 18), Economic: 100 (Parity: 60, Opportunity: 40), Political: 37, Immigration: 90, Culture: 100, Non-Resident: 49.)
While Darussalam may have few civil rights abuses in practice, its lack of legal protections for minorities, lack of a representative government, and outright permission of discrimination are all major causes for concern. Societally, there are few racial or cultural divides, and the nation even has a perfect score when it comes to respecting Cultural Integrity. However, the nation's government openly admits to unequal treatment of people based on intrinsic factors, such as gender, LGBTQ+ status, and disability, even if not by the government itself. The ICEI also took some of these circumstances, such as where de facto equality and de jure equality differ, into effect, which increased Darussalam's score slightly from its raw score. The ICEI rates Darussalam as ⬤ Somewhat Unequal, with major problems in LGBTQ Equality, Support of the Disabled, and Gender Equality. Civil rights are seen as At Moderately High Risk due to the lack of protections and the authoritarian nature of the government. A Travel Advisory has been issed for transgender men and non-heterosexuals.


⬤ Unequal - These nations have notable civil rights abuses. Some minority groups may actively have rights stripped away, or may be demonized by either the government or society. There may be suppression of advocacy groups as well. Comparable nations are Mexico, Turkey, and India. (ICEI 250-499)

⬤ Very Unequal - These nations have egregious civil rights abuses. If you aren't part of the absolute majority in this nation, you likely have few rights and protections and may be subject to discrimination or even violence. Comparable nations are the DPR of Korea, China, and Sudan.
(Racial: 0, Gender: 7, Disability: 87, LGBTQ: 0 (Sexuality: 0, Gender: 0), Economic: 42 (Parity: 25, Opportunity: 17), Political: 0, Immigration: 50, Culture: 16, Non-Resident: 46.)
Knessniet is home to egregous civil rights violations and dangerous living conditions. There are little to no protections for minorities, racial slavery still exists, and LGBTQ+ persons are either tortured or executed. Economic disparity is incredibly high, and economic opportunity is almost unheard of due to the feudalistic structure of the economy. The government is in no way representative of the people, and political rights do not exist. Cultural integration is expected, and the consequences can vary from deportation to domestic arrest. Execution of non-legal immigrants is common. However, despite all this, the country does have some important protections for disabled persons, but there is no safety net for those unable to work. The ICEI rates Knessniet as ⬤ Very Unequal, with egregious problems in LGBTQ+ Rights, Racial Equality, Economic Disparity, Political Representation, Cultural Integrity, Gender Equality, and Bodily Integrity. Civil rights are seen as At Extreme Risk, as legal protections are almost unheard of, slavery and feudalism exists, and execution of minorities is rampant. An Urgent Travel Warning has been issued for racial minorities, all LGBTQ+ persons, political activists, women, and cultural minorities. The ICEI formally denounces the actions of Knessniet.

Racial Equality Score
1. Are there laws that prevent public employment discrimination against people based on race? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes, very strictly.
2. Are there laws that prevent private employment discrimination against people based on race? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes, though there are some employers that have practiced discrimination unknown to the government for years before laws were enforced.
3. Are there laws that prevent housing discrimination against people based on race? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes.
4. Are there laws that prevent education discrimination against people based on race? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes.
5. Are there laws that prevent public accommodation discrimination against people based on race? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes.
6. Are there laws that prevent marriage and adoption discrimination against people based on race? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes.
7. Is your society tolerant of people of different races? Yes, though there is some slight cultural preference for those with darker or fairer skin than average. This is solely a standard of beauty, however, and has little effect on treatment or discrimination.
8. Are violent crimes that are proven to be racially motivated charged as hate crimes? Yes.
9. Do people of different races earn equal wages for equal work? Is this enforced? Yes. Yes.
Any other notes? The only notable cases of racial discrimination in the past two decades have been more motivated by ancestry than race. Racism, as it is known in many countries, is almost unheard of.
Gender Equality Score
1. Are there laws that prevent public employment discrimination against people based on gender? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes.
2. Are there laws that prevent private employment discrimination against people based on gender? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes.
3. Are there laws that prevent housing discrimination against people based on gender? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes.
4. Are there laws that prevent education discrimination against people based on gender? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes.
5. Are there laws that prevent public accommodation discrimination against people based on gender? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes.
6. Are there laws that prevent marriage and adoption discrimination against people based on gender or marital status? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes, though only in the past 10 years has enforcement truly been equal.
7. Does your society view men and women as equal? In rights, yes, and while the importance of gender roles is diminishing, it does still hold cultural relevance.
8. Are violent crimes that are proven to be motivated by gender charged as hate crimes? Yes, though in practice this is rarely enforced.
9. Do men and women earn equal wages for equal work? Is this enforced? Yes. Yes.
Any other notes? The concepts of "men" and "women" in Nua-Asàiti are highly fluid, and as such are more difficult to define outside of the context of rights based on gender identity.
Disability Score
1. Are there laws that prevent public employment discrimination against people based on disability? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes.
2. Are there laws that prevent private employment discrimination against people based on disability? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes, though there is still ongoing debate about what "reasonable accommodation" entails.
3. Are there laws that prevent housing discrimination against people based on disability? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes, and compliance with accessibility standards is required for all multi-unit housing.
4. Are there laws that prevent education discrimination against people based on disability? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes.
5. Are there laws that prevent public accommodation discrimination against people based on disability? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes, and compliance with accessibility standards is required for all public accommodation.
6. Are there laws that prevent marriage and adoption discrimination against people based on disability? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes, though there are cases where people with disabilities are legitimately deemed unfit to parent by the court, and must have fit co-parents in order to qualify for adoption.
7. Does your society provide assistance to those who are disabled and unable to work? Yes.
8. Are violent crimes that are proven to be motivated by disability charged as hate crimes? Yes.
9. Do disabled and able-bodied people earn equal wages for equal work? Is this enforced? Yes. Yes, though a few guilds still enforce productivity-based wages, which can unfairly impact those with disabilities.
Any other notes? Disability care and research is a high priority in Nua-Asàiti, and universal healthcare, as well as a universal basic income, provides a safety net for those unable to work, but unable to qualify for disability assistance.
LGBTQ Equality Score
Sexuality Subscore
1. Are there laws that prevent public employment discrimination against people based on sexual orientation? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes.
2. Are there laws that prevent private employment discrimination against people based on sexual orientation? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes.
3. Are there laws that prevent housing discrimination against people based on sexual orientation? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes.
4. Are there laws that prevent education discrimination against people based on sexual orientation? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes.
5. Are there laws that prevent public accommodation discrimination against people based on sexual orientation? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes.
6. Are there laws that prevent marriage and adoption discrimination against people based on sexual orientation? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes, and adoption considerations take into account all potential co-parents, and more than two parents can have guardianship over one child.
7. Are non-heterosexual marriages legally recognized? Yes.
8. Is polygyny legally recognized? Is polyandry legally recognized? Is plural marriage, regardless of the gender of each spouse, recognized? Yes. Yes. Yes, and plural marriages are quite common.

10. Are any major predominant religions in your nation exclusive towards non-heterosexual people? No.
11. Are violent crimes that are proven to be motivated by sexual orientation charged as hate crimes? Yes.
12. Do heterosexual and non-heterosexual people earn equal wages for equal work? Is this enforced? Yes. Yes.
Any other notes? Nua-Asàiti culture has long recognized sexual fluidity, plural marriages, and the equality of love.
Gender Identity Subscore
1. Are there laws that prevent public employment discrimination against people based on gender identity? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes.
2. Are there laws that prevent private employment discrimination against people based on gender identity? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes.
3. Are there laws that prevent housing discrimination against people based on gender identity? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes.
4. Are there laws that prevent education discrimination against people based on gender identity? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes.
5. Are there laws that prevent public accommodation discrimination against people based gender identity? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes.
6. Are there laws that prevent marriage and adoption discrimination against people based on gender identity? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes. Yes.

8. Is there legal recognition of transgender people's gender identity? Is there legal recognition of nonbinary identities? Yes. Yes.
9. Can transgender people marry? Is this affected by same-sex marriage laws? Yes. No.
10. Are nonbinary people seen as legitimate in your society? Yes.
11. Are any major predominant religions in your nation exclusive towards transgender people? No.
12. Are violent crimes that are proven to be motivated by gender identity charged as hate crimes? Yes.
13. Do cisgender and transgender people earn equal pay for equal work? Is this enforced? Yes. Yes.
Any other notes? In actuality, Nua-Asàiti culture recognizes masculine, feminine, and androgynous genders, not strict categories of male or female. This is considered completely normal, and poses no serious alteration to the structure of society. Because of this, laws regarding sexism and discrimination based on gender identity are actually one and the same.
Economic Score
Economic Parity Subscore
1. What is the ratio of income between the nation's 10th percentile and the nation's 90th percentile income earners? 2.71
2. What is the ratio of income between the nation's 90th percentile and the nation's 99th percentile income earners? 2.54
3. What is the ratio of wealth between the nation's 10th percentile and the nation's 90th percentile of households? 6.83
4. What is the ratio of wealth between the nation's 90th percentile and the nation's 99th percentile of households? 8.97
5. Are basic necessities, such as food, shelter, clothing, etc. affordable for most people in your nation? Yes.
6. What is the poverty rate in your nation? 0.8% via PPP, 3.5% via raw exchange rate.
Any other notes? The rich are heavily taxed, and labor standards prevent the accumulation of wages at the top of society to too great a degree.
Economic Opportunity Subscore
1. Are people able to enter any career, sector of the workforce, etc. regardless of what class they were born into? Yes.
2. Are people able to move up in socioeconomic status, whether by advancement of employment or entrepreneurship? Yes.
3. Are businesses allowed to function without being impeded by government oversight? No, businesses are regulated heavily. Industries and guilds are the most common form of employment, production, and distribution. Private businesses are often regulated to near-nonexistence.
4. Are private businesses allowed to exist? Yes, but few exist due to the structure of the economy.
5. Is education able to be obtained by all people regardless of social class? Is there assistance for the economically disadvantaged in order to obtain education? Yes. Yes.
Any other notes? Nua-Asàiti is considered a true socialist nation, and culturally does not support the corporatization of the economy. Many would-be corporations are effectively state-run.
Political Freedom Score
1. Are people able to openly criticize the government without fear of imprisonment or violence? Yes.
2. Is the freedom of speech recognized and protected? Yes.
3. Is the freedom of assembly recognized and protected? Yes.
4. Is the media able to exist without government interference? Can the media (truthfully) cover negative aspects of the government without fear of retribution? Yes. Yes.
5. Are there government-run media outlets? No.
6. Are all people allowed to run for office unimpeded?Yes.
7. If there are political parties in your nation, are members of the non-majority party(-ies) able to run for office unimpeded? Are unaffiliated persons able to run for office unimpeded? Yes, though popularity in the primary elections is used to determine the ballots for the final elections, and some non-majority or unaffiliated persons find it difficult to get on the ballot as a result.
8. Is the leader of your nation appointed by a free, fair, and regular election? Yes.
9. Is the legislature of your nation appointed by a free, fair, and regular election? Yes.
10. Does your nation have term limits for any government offices? Yes, for executive, legislative, and some judicial offices.
Any other notes? Some laws are created by referenda.
Immigration Opportunity Score
1. Is there a legal immigration process in your nation? Yes, though it is relatively loose, more akin to residency within a different state in the United States than residency in a different country.
2. Are people allowed to legally immigrate to your nation? Yes.
3. If there is a legal immigration process in your nation, how are people who do not follow it, yet take residence in your nation, handled by the government? Because the legal immigration process is so lax, avoiding the process simply results in a fine and a reduction in the universal basic income until citizenship is acquired, which usually takes one to two months after residency is met. There is very little non-legal immigration.
4. Is immigration restricted based on national origin? No.
5. Is immigration restricted based on race? No.
6. Is immigration restricted based on gender? No.
7. Is immigration restricted based on LGBTQ status? No.
8. Is immigration restricted based on ability? No.
9. Is immigration restricted based on education? No.
10. Is immigration restricted based on profession? no.
11. What is your society's views on immigrants? Immigrants are often seen as quirky as they often do not understand many of the cultural attitudes of Nua-Asàiti, from views on gender and sexuality to the importance and significance of the religious sabhainna. However, this isn't seen as inherently bad, but those who openly mock or criticize Nua-Asàiti are often seen as "backwards foreigners".
Any other notes? The immigration process involves submitting a certificate of birth or other unique government identification from their home country, which is then coupled with the Governmental Record Number. This GRN functions similarly to the Social Security Number in the United States. Then, residency of six months is required, and taxes must be paid during this time. Then, criminal databases are checked internationally, and if all clear, probationary citizenship is granted for two years. Once that is complete, the person is considered naturalized. Citizenship by birthright is offered to all children of those who have completed the residency, though special cases are given in cases of amnesty request.
Cultural Integrity Score
1. Are people in your nation free to partake in any religion (or lack thereof) they choose? Yes.
2. Are people in your nation free to partake in culturally relevant ceremonies? Yes.
3. Are people in your nation free to wear culturally appropriate dress? Yes, though non-Nua-Asàiti cultural dress is often seen as strange.
4. Are people in your nation free to form culturally cohesive organizations? Yes.
5. Are people in your nation free to speak and teach another language other than the official language or lingua franca? Yes.
6. Are people in your nation allowed to have a cultural identity separate from their national identity? Yes.
7. What is your society's views on different cultures? Different cultures are often seen as strange or different, but not inherently bad. Particularly agressively integrative cultures are seen as extreme.
Any other notes? Respect of the Nua-Asàiti culture is expected, regardless of cultural background.
Non-Resident Score
1. Are tourists allowed in your nation? Yes.
2. Are non-citizens allowed in your nation on business? Yes.
3. Are non-citizens allowed in your nation to visit family? Yes.
4. Are non-immigrant visitors in your nation treated differently based on their lack of citizenship? Some people try to take advantage of tourists financially or emotionally, but they are not treated differently from a legal perspective.
Any other notes? Tourism is a major part of the economy of many Nua-Asàiti cities.
Here, queer, and plotting a scheme of slow geopolitical domination.

5. Are there laws that prevent public accommodation discrimination against people based on race? Are these laws actively enforced? No, discrimination is permitted.
6. Are there laws that prevent marriage and adoption discrimination against people based on race? Are these laws actively enforced? No, discrimination is permitted.
7. Is your society tolerant of people of different races? Yes.
8. Are violent crimes that are proven to be racially motivated charged as hate crimes? No such thing is recognized - crime is against person and property, sometimes against established groups and institutions, but never against the nebulous ideas of identities.
9. Do people of different races earn equal wages for equal work? Is this enforced? Generally, yes. People of different races do not do equal work, however, and thus wage disparity is visible. There is no policy that regulates this.
Any other notes? As of present, the Abode of Peace is an ethnically diverse polity, and unity is enforced through intensive market selection and a polyethnic hierarchy. Private segregation and discrimination, however, is common, and perceived as a legitimate choice by members of the society to regulate their life according to their interests.

Gender Equality Score
1. Are there laws that prevent public employment discrimination against people based on gender? Are these laws actively enforced? No, discrimination is permitted.
2. Are there laws that prevent private employment discrimination against people based on gender? Are these laws actively enforced? No, discrimination is permitted.
3. Are there laws that prevent housing discrimination against people based on gender? Are these laws actively enforced? No, discrimination is permitted.
4. Are there laws that prevent education discrimination against people based on gender? Are these laws actively enforced? No, discrimination is permitted.
5. Are there laws that prevent public accommodation discrimination against people based on gender? Are these laws actively enforced? No, discrimination is permitted.
6. Are there laws that prevent marriage and adoption discrimination against people based on gender or marital status? Are these laws actively enforced? No, discrimination is permitted.
7. Does your society view men and women as equal? No, there is common understanding that women and men have different functions and abilities.
8. Are violent crimes that are proven to be motivated by gender charged as hate crimes? No (see above), hate crimes are not recognized.
9. Do men and women earn equal wages for equal work? Is this enforced? Generally, yes. People of different sexes do not do equal work, however, and thus wage disparity is visible. There is no policy that regulates this.
Any other notes? Despite the patriarchal nature of Darussalami society, the legal system generally recognizes women as sovereign individuals not unlike men, and allow them to exercise some functions in society with the assorted rights. Just as races above, what appears as structural misogyny is generally the result of the gender-blind, productivity-selecting market mechanism.

Disability Score
1. Are there laws that prevent public employment discrimination against people based on disability? Are these laws actively enforced? No, discrimination is permitted.
2. Are there laws that prevent private employment discrimination against people based on disability? Are these laws actively enforced? No, discrimination is permitted.

Any other notes? Disabled individuals who are incapable of sustaining themselves generally fall under care of religious authorities. There is no nation-wide welfare net to support them.

LGBTQ Equality Score
Sexuality Subscore
1. Are there laws that prevent public employment discrimination against people based on sexual orientation? Are these laws actively enforced? No, discrimination is permitted.
2. Are there laws that prevent private employment discrimination against people based on sexual orientation? Are these laws actively enforced? No, discrimination is permitted.
3. Are there laws that prevent housing discrimination against people based on sexual orientation? Are these laws actively enforced? No, discrimination is permitted.
4. Are there laws that prevent education discrimination against people based on sexual orientation? Are these laws actively enforced? No, discrimination is permitted.
5. Are there laws that prevent public accommodation discrimination against people based on sexual orientation? Are these laws actively enforced? No, discrimination is permitted.
6. Are there laws that prevent marriage and adoption discrimination against people based on sexual orientation? Are these laws actively enforced? No, discrimination is permitted.
7. Are non-heterosexual marriages legally recognized? Yes, insofar that contracts in general are recognized. It is entirely permissible to legally sue one's partner in a non-heterosexual marriage for their unfaithfulness or other contract violation, and punish them according to the agreed upon terms.
8. Is polygyny legally recognized? Is polyandry legally recognized? Is plural marriage, regardless of the gender of each spouse, recognized? Yes, yes, yes. Such contracts are permissible and enforceable.
9. Does your society view heterosexual and non-heterosexual people as equal? No. To procure children that will populate our illustrious civilization to the future is the fundamental cycle of nature, and a duty for all. Homosexual relationships are a game, at best.
10. Are any major predominant religions in your nation exclusive towards non-heterosexual people? The state religion frowns upon same-sex sexual relationships, but it does not inherently exclude homosexuals per se.
11. Are violent crimes that are proven to be motivated by sexual orientation charged as hate crimes? No, hate crime is not recognized.
12. Do heterosexual and non-heterosexual people earn equal wages for equal work? Is this enforced? Same answer as similar questions above.
Any other notes? Darussalami perception of sexual orientation is relatively permissive compared to other reactionary, patriarchal societies, but not to the extent of many liberal societies. In general, it is similar with how Romans perceive sexuality.
Gender Identity Subscore
1. Are there laws that prevent public employment discrimination against people based on gender identity? Are these laws actively enforced? No, discrimination is permitted.
2. Are there laws that prevent private employment discrimination against people based on gender identity? Are these laws actively enforced? No, discrimination is permitted.
3. Are there laws that prevent housing discrimination against people based on gender identity? Are these laws actively enforced? No, discrimination is permitted.
4. Are there laws that prevent education discrimination against people based on gender identity? Are these laws actively enforced? No, discrimination is permitted.
5. Are there laws that prevent public accommodation discrimination against people based gender identity? Are these laws actively enforced? No, discrimination is permitted.
6. Are there laws that prevent marriage and adoption discrimination against people based on gender identity? Are these laws actively enforced? No, discrimination is permitted.
7. Does your society view cisgender and transgender people as equal? No, similar to perception of males and females above.
8. Is there legal recognition of transgender people's gender identity? Is there legal recognition of nonbinary identities? Yes only insofar as "legal recognition" is necessary. Traditionally, third gender (male-to-female identity) has been recognized in Darussalam since time immemorial, and enshrined into religious doctrines.
9. Can transgender people marry? Is this affected by same-sex marriage laws? Yes - all marriage contracts are permitted without regard to sexuality, gender identity, or any other variables.
10. Are nonbinary people seen as legitimate in your society? Yes, to a certain extent.
11. Are any major predominant religions in your nation exclusive towards transgender people? Somewhat. The state religion recognizes female transsexuals and ordained separate sphere for them. Male transsexuals are unheard of.
12. Are violent crimes that are proven to be motivated by gender identity charged as hate crimes? See the answer to previous questions - hate crimes are unrecognized.
13. Do cisgender and transgender people earn equal pay for equal work? Is this enforced? See the answer to similar questions above.
Any other notes? An observer might note that Darussalamis are more lenient to gender identities at the fringes of the bimodal spectrum than to sexual orientations. This might explain why many homosexuals in Darussalam, although hardly all, self-identify as the third gender. However, they remain to be perceived as, essentially, reproductive dead-ends, at least until the advancement of modern reproductive technology.

Economic Score
Economic Parity Subscore
1. What is the ratio of income between the nation's 10th percentile and the nation's 90th percentile income earners? 6.21 (P90/P10 ratio)

5. Are basic necessities, such as food, shelter, clothing, etc. affordable for most people in your nation? Yes.
6. What is the poverty rate in your nation? 17.7% living below relative poverty line, 0.6% below absolute poverty.
Any other notes? Darussalamis have a high wealth inequality that distributes its immense production per capita unevenly, with overall Gini coefficient of 61.6.
Economic Opportunity Subscore
1. Are people able to enter any career, sector of the workforce, etc. regardless of what class they were born into? Yes, as long as the employers agree to employ them.
2. Are people able to move up in socioeconomic status, whether by advancement of employment or entrepreneurship? Yes.

Any other notes? It has been hypothetized that social mobility in Darussalam is lower than expected because of socieconomic segregation creates heavy selection towards more assortative mating.

Political Freedom Score
1. Are people able to openly criticize the government without fear of imprisonment or violence? Yes, as long as it does not fall on outright advocacy to overthrow the government.
2. Is the freedom of speech recognized and protected? De facto yes, but there is no legal guarantee for such.
3. Is the freedom of assembly recognized and protected? De facto yes, but there is no legal guarantee of such. Protests on public spaces such as roads and parks are generally prohibited by the proprietors of said spaces in question, and could be dispersed by force. Rioting is punishable by death.
4. Is the media able to exist without government interference? Can the media (truthfully) cover negative aspects of the government without fear of retribution? Yes, to a certain extent. It's not uncommon for media to be sued for defamation, but that generally falls into "untruthful" part. Major media outlets are generally controlled by corporate allies of the ruling regime.
5. Are there government-run media outlets? Yes, the relatively minor Calendar of Affairs that mostly reports boring administrative and financial news.
6. Are all people allowed to run for office unimpeded? No.
7. If there are political parties in your nation, are members of the non-majority party(-ies) able to run for office unimpeded? Are unaffiliated persons able to run for office unimpeded? No political party exists unless informally.

9. Is the legislature of your nation appointed by a free, fair, and regular election? There's no legislature.
10. Does your nation have term limits for any government offices? No.
Any other notes? Darussalami political system is generally considered to be authoritarian, opaque, despotic, and neo-feudal.

Immigration Opportunity Score
1. Is there a legal immigration process in your nation? Yes.
2. Are people allowed to legally immigrate to your nation? Yes.
3. If there is a legal immigration process in your nation, how are people who do not follow it, yet take residence in your nation, handled by the government? Illegal intruders are arrested and deported, by force if necessary, unless they comply to the existing system.
4. Is immigration restricted based on national origin? No.
5. Is immigration restricted based on race? No.
6. Is immigration restricted based on gender? No.
7. Is immigration restricted based on LGBTQ status? No.
8. Is immigration restricted based on ability? No (at least not directly).
9. Is immigration restricted based on education? No.
10. Is immigration restricted based on profession? No.
11. What is your society's views on immigrants? Immigrants are employed in many sectors of Darussalami economy, generally efficient management of human capital mobility is viewed as necessary for human flourishing.
Any other notes? Darussalami immigration system is relatively efficient, capable of processing an arbitrarily large number of entrants, and aimed at reducing potential future externalities. At a cost: each and every individual within the sovereign territory of the Abode of Peace are tracked, identified, and recorded. Customer Relations Scheme provided assessment of their "human capital performance" during their stay.

Cultural Integrity Score
1. Are people in your nation free to partake in any religion (or lack thereof) they choose? Yes.
2. Are people in your nation free to partake in culturally relevant ceremonies? Yes.
3. Are people in your nation free to wear culturally appropriate dress? Yes.
4. Are people in your nation free to form culturally cohesive organizations? Yes.
5. Are people in your nation free to speak and teach another language other than the official language or lingua franca? Yes, most are in fact bilingual/polyglot.
6. Are people in your nation allowed to have a cultural identity separate from their national identity? Yes. ("National identity" in Darussalami context is just "elite culture")
7. What is your society's views on different cultures? To each their own.
Any other notes? Darussalamis are as multicultural as they are multiethnic.

Non-Resident Score
1. Are tourists allowed in your nation? Yes.
2. Are non-citizens allowed in your nation on business? Yes.
3. Are non-citizens allowed in your nation to visit family? Yes.
4. Are non-immigrant visitors in your nation treated differently based on their lack of citizenship? Not really.
Any other notes? There is scarcely any distinction between a resident, a tourist, an expatriate, or any other categories - the only thing that concerns the authorities is what sort of law applies to what sort of individual. If foreign polities insist on claiming jurisdiction upon a certain group of people, misdemeanors committed by the members of the group in question might just result in deportation.
The weak crumble, are slaughtered and are erased from history while the strong, for good or for ill, survive. The strong are respected, and alliances are made with the strong, and in the end peace is made with the strong.

Racial Equality Score
1. Are there laws that prevent public employment discrimination against people based on race? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes, mostly enforced
2. Are there laws that prevent private employment discrimination against people based on race? Are these laws actively enforced? No
3. Are there laws that prevent housing discrimination against people based on race? Are these laws actively enforced? No
4. Are there laws that prevent education discrimination against people based on race? Are these laws actively enforced? Private education no, state-funded education yes
5. Are there laws that prevent public accommodation discrimination against people based on race? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes, enforced
6. Are there laws that prevent discrimination in issuing marriage licenses or approving adoption based on race? Are these laws actively enforced? The state only issues universal civil partnership licences. Adoption through private companies is very loosely regulated, adoption through state-funded organisations is rare but features a brief background check on the aspiring parents.
7. Is your society tolerant of people of different races? For the most part. They still bear a grudge on the Soviets and Qaidi militants due to the conflicts of the last year.
8. Are violent crimes that are proven to be racially motivated charged as hate crimes? There is no such thing as hate crime, only crime.
9. Do people of different races earn equal wages for equal work? Is this enforced? Yes, but this is not enforced. The vast majority of Shackleyan employers tend to focus on the work produced rather than the worker.
Any other notes? Nope.
Gender Equality Score
1. Are there laws that prevent public employment discrimination against people based on gender? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes, mostly enforced.
2. Are there laws that prevent private employment discrimination against people based on gender? Are these laws actively enforced? No
3. Are there laws that prevent housing discrimination against people based on gender? Are these laws actively enforced? No
4. Are there laws that prevent education discrimination against people based on gender? Are these laws actively enforced? Private education no, state-funded education yes with the exception of traditionally boys-only and girls-only schools.
5. Are there laws that prevent public accommodation discrimination against people based on gender? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes, enforced
6. Are there laws that prevent discrimination in issuing marriage licenses or approving adoption based on gender or marital status? Are these laws actively enforced? Universal civil partnerships may be approved for any couple or small group. Traditional marriage in the legal system has been abolished. The UCP offers very little legal protection or responsibility, it is just a formality. Very loosely governed.
7. Does your society view men and women as equal? Insofar as they view them both as human beings, yes. Gender is very obviously biological and has notable differences between male and female. Standards are not lowered or raised for either party.
8. Are violent crimes that are proven to be motivated by gender charged as hate crimes? No. There is no hate crime, only crime.
9. Do men and women earn equal wages for equal work? Is this enforced? Shackleyan employers tend not to focus on the worker but on the work produced. There is nothing stopping a woman from earning the same as a man or vice-versa but it is generally not enforced. A court session may be held on an individual basis if it seems there has been a great injustice, but this is a rare occurrence.
Any other notes? Nope.

5. Are there laws that prevent public accommodation discrimination against people based on disability? Are these laws actively enforced? Yes, with the exception of residences where the disability would be grossly inappropriate i.e. top-floor apartment with no lift for wheelchair user
6. Are there laws that prevent discrimination in issuing marriage licenses or approving adoption based on disability? Are these laws actively enforced? None unless that particular disability is deemed to be a significant risk to their partner i.e. clinical insanity or severe psychopathy
7. Does your society provide assistance to those who are disabled and unable to work?

The same rule applies to natural-born Shackleyers also; service guarantees citizenship but residents still have rights.
2. Are people allowed to legally immigrate to your nation? Yes, see above.
3. If there is a legal immigration process in your nation, how are people who do not follow it, yet take residence in your nation, handled by the government?

7. What is your society's views on different cultures? Depends on the culture in question. Most western democracies are seen as alright, communist/socialist cultures are despised, and extreme religious groups are treated with heavy suspicion.

6. Are there laws that prevent discrimination in issuing marriage licenses or approving adoption based on race? Are these laws actively enforced? Marshite First Scripture guarantees equality across all spectrums of society without exception in such matters, and it is the foundational document of governance and law.
7. Is your society tolerant of people of different races? Yes, and have been via First Scripture for 5,000 years.
8. Are violent crimes that are proven to be racially motivated charged as hate crimes? In theory they would be, though such an event is catalogued with absurd rarity.
9. Do people of different races earn equal wages for equal work? Is this enforced? Marshite First Scripture guarantees equality across all spectrums of society without exception in such matters, and it is the foundational document of governance and law.
Any other notes? Marshites barely even note race, but no law has ever existed in response to it, as all members of the Church are guaranteed a basic set of rights by First Scripture. These Marshite Basic Rights are immutable. Some Shrines exist that emphasize species, not gender- the Non-Human Shrine and Ponyist Shrine in particular. They believe that one or the other is the superior species and take the roles of shepherds for all others in accordance with their role as the Chosen People. Within these Shrines, laws may exist that on their face seem biased one way or the other. It is important to note that one may always leave a Shrine to another that fits one's beliefs, and any laws to the contrary of Basic Rights lack any hard legality if directly challenged and exist more as social and cultural links between believers.

9. Do men and women earn equal wages for equal work? Is this enforced? Marshite First Scripture guarantees equality across all spectrums of society without exception in such matters, and it is the foundational document of governance and law.
Any other notes? Two Shrines exist that emphasis gender. The Female Shrine and Male Shrine believe that one or the other is the superior gender, and take the roles of shepherds for all others in accordance with their role as the Chosen People. Within these Shrines, laws may exist that on their face seem sexist one way or the other. It is important to note that one may always leave a Shrine to another that fits one's beliefs, and all members of the Church are guaranteed a basic set of rights by First Scripture. These Marshite Basic Rights are immutable. As such, any laws t the contrary lack any hard legality if directly challenged and exist more as social and cultural links between believers.

9. Do disabled and able-bodied people earn equal wages for equal work? Is this enforced? Marshite First Scripture guarantees equality across all spectrums of society without exception in such matters, and it is the foundational document of governance and law.
Any other notes? The Theocracy is at its core a meritocracy. If you can do the work, you can get the job. But it does not force a 'square peg in a round hole'. While it will seek out the right situation for all those who are disabled, it will not do so at the expense of others.

Economic Score
Economic Parity Subscore
1. What is the ratio of income between the nation's 10th percentile and the nation's 90th percentile income earners? Top-earners only earn about twice as much as those in the bottom once taxes are considered.
2. What is the ratio of income between the nation's 90th percentile and the nation's 99th percentile income earners? Top-earners only earn about twice as much as those in the bottom once taxes are considered.
3. What is the ratio of wealth between the nation's 10th percentile and the nation's 90th percentile of households? Top-earners only earn about twice as much as those in the bottom once taxes are considered.
4. What is the ratio of wealth between the nation's 90th percentile and the nation's 99th percentile of households? Top-earners only earn about twice as much as those in the bottom once taxes are considered.
5. Are basic necessities, such as food, shelter, clothing, etc. affordable for most people in your nation? The Church provides all basic necessities aross the board. Depending on role in the Church, the provisions are better or worse, but even then the difference is minute in comparison to others.
6. What is the poverty rate in your nation? With the standard being poverty being unable to sustain oneself through work, less than 1%.
Any other notes? The Church provides almost everything required as long as you either work, fight, or are being educated. Those without jobs, jobs will be found for them. Taxes are extreme.

Economic Opportunity Subscore
1. Are people able to enter any career, sector of the workforce, etc. regardless of what class they were born into? The Theocracy views jobs as a meritocracy. Your class matters not at all.
2. Are people able to move up in socioeconomic status, whether by advancement of employment or entrepreneurship? In theory and practice, mostly. Little difference exists between the top and bottom after taxes, but those that succeed are often looked at by the Clergy as important members of the Church.
3. Are businesses allowed to function without being impeded by government oversight? Little private enterprise exists. Those that do must follow government regulations and laws. If they do, they have wide berth.
4. Are private businesses allowed to exist? In theory, though heavy taxation makes them rare.
5. Is education able to be obtained by all people regardless of social class? Is there assistance for the economically disadvantaged in order to obtain education? Marshite First Scripture guarantees equality across all spectrums of society without exception in such matters, and it is the foundational document of governance and law.
Any other notes? The Church controls the economy down to the last Marshian. This was a necessity of the Long War that only recently ended.

Political Freedom Score
1. Are people able to openly criticize the government without fear of imprisonment or violence? As long as they don't blaspheme or disregard Shrine and Church Law in doing so. Such laws make allowances for criticisms. However, depending on war or other major event, such speech may be curtailed legally.
2. Is the freedom of speech recognized and protected? As long as they don't blaspheme or disregard Shrine and Church Law in doing so. Such laws make allowances for criticisms. However, depending on war or other major event, such speech may be curtailed legally.
3. Is the freedom of assembly recognized and protected? As long as they don't blaspheme or disregard Shrine and Church Law in doing so. Such laws make allowances for such gatherings. However, depending on war or other major event, such gatherings may be curtailed legally.
4. Is the media able to exist without government interference? Can the media (truthfully) cover negative aspects of the government without fear of retribution? In theory, yes. In practice, the Church runs almost all media.
5. Are there government-run media outlets? Yes, the Church runs most of the media.
6. Are all people allowed to run for office unimpeded? Anyone may join the Church and attempt to become Clergy. As part of the Romani-Mar'si Union, there are offices that the people may vote in for the Marshite representation to the Council, though this does not have a direct impact on the Theocracy itself.
7. If there are political parties in your nation, are members of the non-majority party(-ies) able to run for office unimpeded? Are unaffiliated persons able to run for office unimpeded? Anyone may try to join the Clergy. As part of the Romani-Mar'si Union, there are offices that the people may vote in for the Marshite representation to the Council, though this does not have a direct impact on the Theocracy itself.
8. Is the leader of your nation appointed by a free, fair, and regular election? Not by the people. Upon the death of the previous Arch-Bishop, the Cardinal Council convenes to select the next Arch-Bishop.
9. Is the legislature of your nation appointed by a free, fair, and regular election? The Theocracy itself does not have a legislature. The Union does have one, and Marshites may vote for it.
10. Does your nation have term limits for any government offices? No. Many appointments are for life. Those found wanting in their post may be removed by the Inquisition.
Any other notes? The Theocracy has been in control for 5,000 years, including a recent period of 2,000 years that just ended known as the Long War. The stability of the Church, as well as the intensity of the propaganda efforts for 2,000 years straight, makes disagreements unlikely. While there are laws that would allow such disagreement, it rarely comes up.

Immigration Opportunity Score
1. Is there a legal immigration process in your nation? Yes, and it is very simple and free. Only one or two qualifications are considered.
2. Are people allowed to legally immigrate to your nation? Yes, and it is very simple and free. Only one or two qualifications are considered.
3. If there is a legal immigration process in your nation, how are people who do not follow it, yet take residence in your nation, handled by the government? It is handled in of two ways. If they did so not out of malice but out of ignorance, they are given a direct, clear, and free path to legal immigration with no biases against them. If they did so out of malice, then depending on the nature of the malice, punishments range. Members of the Lardite Cult are executed. Foreign criminals are executed or extradited depending on crime. Those who refuse to follow the Edicts of the Church as it pertains to Law, even if they choose not to become members, are deported until such a time as they choose to accept such edicts.

They may choose not to join the Church (though they are incentivized to entirely), but may immigrate as long as they pledge to follow the Edicts. Because of the nature of the nation and Church, most who migrate desire to join the Church anyway.

Cultural Integrity Score
1. Are people in your nation free to partake in any religion (or lack thereof) they choose? In theory, with the exception of the Lardite Cult or any other religion that promotes conflict with Marshism. In practice, Marshism is not only the State Sponsored Faith, but the founding theology and philosophy of the nation and society. Only a small sliver of the population (less than a percent) practice something other than Marshism or lack belief in it.
2. Are people in your nation free to partake in culturally relevant ceremonies? Yes, and there are a wide range of them, including Shrine-based, regional based, even old tribal based.

5. Are people in your nation free to speak and teach another language other than the official language or lingua franca? Yes, and there are a wide range of them, including Shrine-based, regional based, even old tribal based.
6. Are people in your nation allowed to have a cultural identity separate from their national identity? In theory. In practice, the national identity is so tied up into every facet of life, and so adaptable based on local culture, that the two are almost inseparable.
7. What is your society's views on different cultures? Most have some value.
Any other notes? Marshism is the dominant cultural influence across all levels of society. One may practice their own cultural traditions, but Marshite traditions, regional traditions within the nation, tribal traditions thousand of years old, will always be promoted ahead of them.

Non-Resident Score
1. Are tourists allowed in your nation? Yes.
2. Are non-citizens allowed in your nation on business? Yes.
3. Are non-citizens allowed in your nation to visit family? Yes.
4. Are non-immigrant visitors in your nation treated differently based on their lack of citizenship? In theory, no. In practice, large elements of the nation are reserved for members of the Church only.
Any other notes? As long as one agrees to follow Church Edicts and Laws while in the nation, all is well
Holy Marsh is ranked 1st in Nova (Greysteel) and 571st (477th) in the world for Largest Defense Forces.
