Key Country/Autonomous Region/Union Year implemented Year of last execution Year abolished Method(s) Notes
 Agarntrop Antiquity (codified in 1732) 1970 2006 (moratorium imposed in 1971) Firing Squad (1895-2006)
Beheading (1732-1895)
The death penalty was historically used in Agarntrop and was codified into law in 1732, during the Neuew colonial era. Originally, there were several crimes that could be punished with death by beheading, however these were reduced to murder, rape, military offences, and treason by 1886. Beheading was abolished in 1895 and replaced with the firing squad. The death penalty overall was abolished in 2006 by a constitutional amendment passed by the national legislature with the necessary 2/3rds majority required, and was signed into law by the President. However, the death penalty had not been used since the year 1970 due to an indefinite moratorium on the practice passed by the legislature in 1971. After the 1971 moratorium of the death penalty, the maximum sentence was 50 years' imprisonment, however this was increased to a new sentence of life imprisonment in 1990.
 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.
 Aziallis Properly addressed in the Skaje legal code from 1674. Put into the Azillain Penal Code in brought into force in 1762. 1972 1971 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 1997, the ruling Monarch had the Priviledge to give a "Pardon from Death" to an individual given a death sentence who'd ask for mercy. But the Supreme Court ruled this Privilege null and void on grounds of violation of Judicial Independence and also observing that Courts had been recommending Solitary Confinement as the "next GoTo punishment" which was 'unnecessarily harsh and the cost incurred by the State was more than the spite for vengeance and worth of the said individual's life'.

Since 1969, the Capital Punishment (techniques and aftermath) Revision Act, in accordance with the recommendations of the Dasneig Committee, has made it mandatory for all individuals on death row to be killed by a lethal dose of an Opioid and the healthy organs of the said individuals are used for transplants while organs which cannot be used for transplants are sent off to Medical Schools for research and teaching purposes.

 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.
