Legal drinking age in Esquarium
The legal drinking age in countries of Esquarium are the age at which a person can legally consume or purchase alcoholic beverages.
The minimum age alcohol can be legally consumed can be different from the age when it can be purchased in some countries. Some countries also have different age limits for different types of alcoholic drinks. In other countries, it is not illegal for minors to drink alcohol, but the alcohol can be seized without compensation. In some cases, it is illegal to sell or give alcohol to minors.
The following list indicates the age of the person for whom it is legal to consume and purchase alcohol.
|Drinking age||Purchase age|
|Ainin||None||The sale of alcohol is unregulated by national law, but as a result of provincial and private sector incentives, most stores and dining establishments have implemented policies not to sell liquor to individuals under the age of 16. A 2016 National Police study reported that enforcement of such policies is inconsistent and generally poor.|
|Aucuria||16 (none if under presence of parent or legal guardian)||18||Those under 16 may only consume alcohol if a parent or legal guardian is present; the sale of alcohol to those under 18 is prohibited. Shops are legally required to ask for ID for customers that look under 30. The Muslim-majority province of Atlia has enacted stricter laws- raising the minimum drinking age and minimum purchase age to 20- but has not banned the sale or consumption of alcohol.|
|Katranjiev||None||16||There is no age requirement to drink alcohol in Katranjiev, but there are laws prohibiting minors from buying alcohol. Shops are required to ask for ID for customers that look under the age of 30.|
|Lecia||16||18||The sale of alcohol to those under the age of 18 is prohibited, and stores are legally required to ask for ID for customers that look under 30.|
|Luziyca||21||There are religious exemptions nationwide (i.e. for First Communion). In most states and all constituent republics, it is permissible to drink under the age of 21 in the presence of their parents. Shops are required to ask for ID for customers that look under the age of 30.|
|Senria||none||20||The sale of alcohol to those under the age of 20 is prohibited, and stores are legally required to ask for ID for customers that look under 30. There are, however, no laws barring those under this age from drinking.|
|Tuthina||None||There are no legal restrictions of age on purchase and consumption for alcohol in the Most Serene Empire, as determining whether children can drink alcohol traditionally falls into the purview of their parents, who judge it based on individual circumstance.|
|Vasturia||None||13 (≤16.5% ABV)
16 (>16.5% ABV)
|Vasturia is considered to have some of the most liberal drinking laws in the world; all children are permitted to consume alcohol if permitted to do so by their legal guardians or other recognised adult authority figures (such as teachers, physicians, or religious leaders), may purchase up to six glasses (or one bottle) of alcohol less than 16.5% ABV starting at age 13 without the authorisation of adult authority figures, and may purchase alcohol as they please at age 16. Furthermore, although theoretically allowed to do so, the vast majority of privately-owned stores do not have policies restricting alcohol consumption beyond the legal requirements.|

|Xiaodong||18||The minimum age for the consumption and purchasing of alcohol is 18, with ID needed to be shown at purchase regardless of age. However, regulations on alcohol are weakly enforced in most parts of the country, especially rural areas.|
