Lets say that a large tropical island (about the size of Cuba) formed overnight in the middle of international waters. You were the first person there and you claimed it as your own. Your claim is uncontested, so now you have your very own country that is completely independent from any government. At this time you are the only person who lives on the island, but many people want to move there because it is a tropical paradise. You now have the opportunity to establish your own set of laws prior to anyone immigrating to your new country. Assuming you WANT people to EVENTUALLY move to your island nation - what laws would you establish and why? For example: 1 - What would you make the legal drinking age? 2 - Driving age? 3 - Age of sexual consent? 4 - Voting age? 5 - At what age would someone become an adult (free from parental control)? 6 - What types of recreational drugs (if any) would be legal? - Pot - Tobacco - Cocaine - Alcohol - LSD - Caffeine - Heroin - Other? 7 - Can people have guns? (if so - who and what kind?) 8 - What would be the name of your country? 9 - Would you have the death penalty? 10 - What would be the speed limit? 11 - What types of religions would be permitted or restricted? Which of the following would be legal: 12 - Porn? 13 - Prostitution? 14 - Polygamy? 15 - Homosexuality? 16 - Stem cell resurch? 17 - Human Cloning? 18 - Cock Fighting? 19 - Slavery? 20 - Hunting? 21 - Fishing? 22 - Eating meat? 23 - Littering? 24 - Unisex bathrooms? 25 - Suicide? 26 - Gay marriage? 27 - Abortion? 28 - What types of sexual activity (if any) would be illegal? 29 - Would your county be clothing optional or clothing mandatory? 30 - Would you have obscenity laws? If so - how would you define "obscene". 31 - What system would you set up for collecting taxes? - Income tax? (how much?) - Sales tax? (how much?) - Import/Export tax? (how much?) 32 - What criteria would someone need to pass to become a citizen? 33 - What types of people would you allow (or not allow) into your country? 34 - What type of government would you establish? 35 - To what degree would your government be allowed to censor or restrict the media? 36 - Aside from laws - what sort of unofficial (and unenforced) cultural rules and traditions would you like to establish? For example - taking shoes off before entering someone's home. Or not eating with the left hand.

First of all, great topic.

1 - What would you make the legal drinking age? 16, like much of Europe. 2 - Driving age? 16 3 - Age of sexual consent? 14 4 - Voting age? 18 5 - At what age would someone become an adult (free from parental control)? 18 6 - What types of recreational drugs (if any) would be legal? - Pot - Tobacco - Alcohol - LSD - Caffeine 7 - Can people have guns? (if so - who and what kind?) The people have a right to bear arms. Semi-automatic is the limit on legally owning a gun though. So, no SMGs but you can have an AK-47 or any other rifle if it is a semi-automatic. 8 - What would be the name of your country? The Empire 9 - Would you have the death penalty? Yes 10 - What would be the speed limit? 90 11 - What types of religions would be permitted or restricted? Freedom of religion, excluding the ones I don't like. It's an empire = D Which of the following would be legal: 12 - Porn? 20 - Hunting? 21 - Fishing? 22 - Eating meat? 25 - Suicide? 28 - What types of sexual activity (if any) would be illegal? Bedroom laws are unenforcable. 29 - Would your county be clothing optional or clothing mandatory? Same laws of America on nudity. 30 - Would you have obscenity laws? If so - how would you define "obscene". Yes. If someone is in the middle of a public place making a jackass out of himself the cops are going to arrest him. Things like screaming "FUCK YOU!" and masturbating in the middle of town square. 31 - What system would you set up for collecting taxes? - Income tax? (5%) - Import/Export tax? (2%) 32 - What criteria would someone need to pass to become a citizen? No affiliation to the goverments of other countries excluding the United States and England. Also, they must be under the age of seventy. 33 - What types of people would you allow (or not allow) into your country? I would not allow the people of countries I am at war with to be in my country. 34 - What type of government would you establish? Empire with me as the Emporer. 35 - To what degree would your government be allowed to censor or restrict the media? I am against censorship but if it threatens my rule then they're going to be killed. 36 - Aside from laws - what sort of unofficial (and unenforced) cultural rules and traditions would you like to establish? For example - taking shoes off before entering someone's home. Or not eating with the left hand. People will have to give the Devil's Salute (\m/) whenever they enter a building. Also, it will be illegal to listen to any music that is not rock or metal. No pop-punk, emo, and certainly no rap.

Info about the Empire

The Empire of Non Existing Nations is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. Its compassionate, cynical population of 101 million are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

1 - What would you make the legal drinking age?

Employing the French system for introducing teenagers to alcohol.

2 - Driving age?

16

3 - Age of sexual consent?

16

4 - Voting age?

It'd be 16, but, yeah, dictatorship.

5 - At what age would someone become an adult (free from parental control)?

18

6 - What types of recreational drugs (if any) would be legal?

Everything. A certificate would be required, though, by taking an educational course regarding drugs and then signing a sheet of paper stating that the person himself takes full responsibility for the manner in which the drugs he buys are used, and that no one else can be held responsible.

7 - Can people have guns? (if so - who and what kind?)

Only after applying for permission; which can be done after a psychiatric evaluation (must be financed by the individual himself). A reason for applying must also be given. If it's for home protection, then a box would have to be installed inside of the house alarming the police if the gun's taken more than X feet away from it (the area allowed would be the person's own property, if it's taken further than that, the police are notified). All firearms will have tracking device integrated to them, added to the original price of the firearm.

8 - What would be the name of your country?

Hyrule.

9 - Would you have the death penalty?

Yes, but the date is indefinite, as the prisoners themselves would not know the date, or even if it's 1 month away or 10 years away. This instills more fear into the prisoners, as someone who has been given the death penalty deserves.

10 - What would be the speed limit?

It'd depend on where you were. Driving through a suburb is not the same as driving on the freeway.

11 - What types of religions would be permitted or restricted?

No religious restrictions.

12 - Porn?

Pornography would be acceptable as long as today's health standards are met.

13 - Prostitution?

Under strict monitoring and designated areas. No street prostitution, but clean facilities. Must meet health standards. Prostitutes also have their minimal wage to prevent extortion from procurers. Inspections by officials at random intervals.

14 - Polygamy?

Polygamy would be acceptable, as it's the individuals' own choice.

15 - Homosexuality?

Homosexuality would be acceptable.

16 - Stem cell resurch?

Stem cell research would be acceptable.

17 - Human Cloning?

Human cloning would be acceptable.

18 - Cock Fighting?

Cock fighting would be illegal.

19 - Slavery?

Slavery would be illegal.

20 - Hunting?

Hunting would be acceptable for certain periods of the year, and only for certain types of animals in certain types of areas. Certificate required.

21 - Fishing?

Fishing would be acceptable.

22 - Eating meat?

Eating meat would be acceptable.

23 - Littering?

Littering would be illegal and punished by community service.

24 - Unisex bathrooms?

Unisex bathrooms would be acceptable if the individuals' themselves were so inclined.

25 - Suicide?

Suicide would be illegal. If you are suspected to try and commit suicide, you will be put into confinement. If you attempt, but fail, to end your life, you will be put into confinement under close monitoring. Punshed by community service and alone-time deprivation.

26 - Gay marriage?

Gay marriage would be acceptable if accepted by the Church; if not, an official 'union' would be acceptable.

27 - Abortion?

Abortion would be acceptable.

28 - What types of sexual activity (if any) would be illegal?

Anything that is psychologically or physically harmful to one individual, even if consentual. Anything involving something other than live human beings of consentual age. (note: live) Anything involving defecation or the product of it.
