Several moles were discovered within the ranks of Government and the military and executed after rapid trials. Capital punishment has not been abolished yet.|
|Great Nortend||Time immemorial||In felonies, capital punishment is an option open to the judge who is empowered to request that the Sovereign issue a writ of præcipimus patiatur pœnam mortis ( “We order that [he] suffer the penalty of death” ). Only after all appeals are exhausted will the writ be issued.|

|Romberg||2016||Either for the crime Indignité nationale, i.e. "national unworthiness", levied on top of existing crimes depending on severity and circumstances. If found guilty, and with victims' or their families' consent, decapitation by guillotine.
Or for treason and gross military misconduct, with mandatory death penalty by shooting squad (seen as more honourable). Indignité nationale can be added on which would instead result in guillotine.
Kaiser or grand council (parliament) can always issue pardons, which override death sentence. Execution solemn, quick affair in seclusion, aimed and preserving dignity. Electronic release for guillotine and firing squad - multiple buttons pushed.
|Woodstead||1865||2015 (explicitly)||No capital punishment was recognised as law or officially as punishment for any crime. Capital punishment has now been explicitly abolished as of the new Woodsteasian Federation constitution. However, the closest case recorded was the one-off execution of Military Governors after Empress Olavea took the throne and urged the Erlenic Empire to curtail the ruthless slaughter of indigenous tribes in Astyria and Nyasott.|
