Key Country Year implemented Year of last execution Year abolished Method(s) Notes
 Albithica 1860 1919 1920 Albithica's current Constitution, as well as all former Constitutions, have always expressly prohibited the death penalty, with the notable exception of the Imperial Republic's reversal of this stance.
 Amrelia Antiquity 1994 2003 Lethal injection, hanging, firing squad Capital punishment varied by state prior to federal law (which allowed for the death penalty in cases of treason, terrorism, and espionage) banning it in 2003. By 1998, only the states of East Elizabeth and Hirane retained the death penalty, however a moratorium had been in place for several years in both states.
 Aziallis Adopted from the Skaje legal code into the Azillain Penal Code in 1762. 1974 1964 None The Azillian Penal Code which was also accepted with amendments after the formation of the Union was drawn majorly from the Skaje Legal Code. The Death Penalty was allowed for a variety of serious offenses and could only be delivered by a Judge of a Court. The Azillian Penal Code gives the Courts the right to decide whether crimes committed by a certain individual deserve death penalty.

Till before 1940, the ruling Monarch (of both the Union and the States) had the Priviledge to give a "Pardon from Death" to an individual on death row asking for mercy. In 1940, the Parliament lead by then Prime Minister V. Mozhtovich scrapd sections of laws granting the Monarch the said power. In 1955, then Prime Minister B. Svave brought back a similar law but instead empowered the Prime Minister with Mercy Pardons (only applicable for reducing death penalty to life in prison). Svave, a strong proponent of ending capital punishment, used his power often. EVen though he was unsuccessful in legally removing the death penalty, he succeeded in minimizing the use of it.

By 1970, 9 States had abolished the death penalty on State levels, and all Autonomous Regions, States and Cities had removed capital punishment as well. Freyerka and Ajenta had leaders that fiercely defended the death penalty and State Parliaments failed to abolish it, even though even their State Judiciaries hadn't used it in 5 years.

In 1973, newly elected Prime Minister C. Sukerni introduced a bill to abolish the death penalty nation-wide. By then, only two States remained which still had the practice in place, with even the Associated Republics having passed legislature to end the practice. In 1974, the Union Government sued the State Governments of Freyerka and Ajenta, claiming that the Act passed by the Union Parliament has legal power to abolish capital punishment even in the States. The Supreme Court agreed with the Union's stance and in 1974 Aziallis was free from capital punishment.

 Halsuntria Since Foundation 2018 N/A Traditional ways included drowning but lethal injection is the most common practice now All people that get executed are processed one of two ways, the immediate sentence or the two-strike system. The Immediate Sentence almost never gets used (however it was the most recent one used in 2018) and involves somebody doing crime so horrible that they immediately get sent to death row and within a week they will have been executed.

 Paxaklemtorno First attested for civil judiciary in 1349 BC
(codified in 278 BC)
2006 N/A In the years of the Younger Kingdoms, execution was carried out in many different ways, including untreated major wounds (severance of limbs, waist cutting, blinding, gouging, stabbing, etc), prolonged death (asphyxiation by hanging, by choking, by breathing in fumes from smoldering coals and by drowning) and immediate death (beheading, boulder crushing, cooking and boiling alive in preheated spaces, etc). The set of methods has changed with time, as more extreme methods were suspended by a moratorium in 1903, then fully abolished in 1944, leaving only hanging and beheading, with the latter suspended by a 1999 ruling. Capital punishment in the Kingdoms of Paxaklemtorno is reserved for highest offences, as only the Royal Court can designate capital punishment upon an individual, with the verification of the acting monarch. Capital punishment is used only in severe cases, where it is deemed equal to the offence committed, such as conscious mass murder, murder, psychological torture, physical torture and rape. In all other cases, the Kingdoms' courts usually opt to impose a life sentence, with such an attitude adopted by the Royal Court as well, following the campaigning of civil rights' activists in the 2000s.
 Pelostan N/A N/A N/A The Pelostani Legislature had never made capital punishment legal.
 Prybourne 1890 2015 n/a Should capital punishment become necessary (such as for going on strike), the preferred method is defenestration from the top of the Tower of Commerce. Not only is the forty-story descent effective, but it allows those in the Sacred Marketplace below opportunities to place wagers on where the condemned will land. Capital punishment is sanctioned in Prybourne for certain federal and military crimes, and used in 7 states. While there are 7 states which include capital punishment within their sentencing statutes, some states (such as Newley and Wildespell) have yet to execute anyone since 1976, as demonstrated by the lack of any executions by these states out of the 1317 total executions which have taken place as of December 5, 2015. No executions took place from 1967 to 1977, owing in part to a Prybourne Supreme Court ruling striking down arbitrary imposition of the death penalty. In 1976, that Court ruled that, under appropriate circumstances, capital punishment may constitutionally be imposed; since the decision there have been more than 1,300 executions, a majority of these taking place in three states: Woodland , Bydale, and Bysummer. Five state legislatures in the modern era have abolished the death penalty, though two of those laws (in Morwall and Limwick) were not retroactive. Additionally, state courts in Vertcoast and Springlea struck down death penalty statutes and their legislatures took no action in response.
