So you're the ruler of your own sovereign, mythical nation. Hooray! What would you personally put down as law? What would be legal/illegal?

I imagine all of us would permit piracy in our countries Smile

In mine, men and women will have equal rights, pay, and opportunities. Period. And veryone will have a kind of socialized legal representation (like socialized health care) so everyone will be entitled to the best protection under the law without rich people being able to buy the system in their favor.

Also, cats will be named living deities Big Grin

no fossil fuelled vehicles.
energy sourced from alternative source, such as wind, solar, and an odd nuclear plant which will be decommissioned as soon as we get enough wind farms and such on line.

death for certain crimes. child murder, rape, and any heinous crime other than manslaughter or accidental killing and also death for politicians found guilty of corruption.

weed legal but must be sold through a registered shop, booze legal. heroine and the like illegal, (with a death sentence for selling or muling it)

education mandatory to at least the end of high school with subsidies for those who can't afford it,

a percentage of earnings soley for education and the basic level of medical care. if you can afford private treatment and wish to pay for it you may but you still have to pay the percentage from earnings.

no vat. all tax will come directly from earning with the exception. of booze tobacco and weed. (they're good little earners Smile )

price controls on certain items such as weed, booze and tobacco, ( the price will be 10% less than the global average of all the western world)

condoms and other methods of birth control would be free.

Indeed. Poor deluded souls.

Corporate crimes like what happened with BP (yes, I consider their gross negligence and treachery a crime) should lead to convictions and jail sentences, not just fines.

Religion will be taught as a philosophy class (featuring different faiths), and not an indoctrination into catholicism.

wouldn't it be best to make it illegal to sell/buy weed, and instead allow each citizen to grow up to "n" plants for own consumption?
no money involved and no one making profits.
growing and selling the product you can regulate it so no shit gets through. and of course you'd be allowed to grow your own within limits for personal consumption. not everyone would want to grow their own, the stink alone is outrageous. plus it would be a revenue stream that could offset the countries imports etc. there would be an annual contest to see who has developed the best strain with awards an shit.

well it's my country and i say the death sentence to heroin traffickers dealers and mules.
weed booze sex or a sniff of coke other than that you're screwed. i'm even contemplating bringing in a law that says if you end up a bag head you die. but i think that's going to far to the right wing.

we have no open border policy, you can live here if you can support yourself or work here if firms can't recruit from the local workforce. if you work here for five years you get residency and all benefits allowed to nationals. you may of course holiday here but don't bring any heroin with you Wink

the church will be separated from the state.
Quote:Having Christianity preached by homosexual men in black suits with roman shirt collars just demeans it.

i was brought up mainly in convents as a child. and while the nuns were cruel i can't remember knowing a priest that was homosexual.
in fact most of them were women chasing alcoholics. while there's a lot of priests that are pedos generalising that they're all gay or that even most of them are doesn't portray a true representation of them.

even as an a adult most of the priests i knew were out and out heterosexuals.

but yep addy. all religions taught, none projected as being necessary

And atheism should be one of the subjects (completely serious)
