 Caphiria Legal Partial Legal Illegal Legal Legal Illegal Illegal Illegal Illegal Illegal
Common Moderate Common Uncommon Common Common Uncommon Uncommon Uncommon Uncommon Uncommon
While Caphiria's constitution protects the base rights and freedoms of its citizens and does not have any explicit discriminatory laws, Caprivian society has a strict national stratification encompassing both legal and social status. Stratification is generally hierarchical, but there are multiple and overlapping social hierarchies, and an individual's relative position in one might be higher or lower than in another. This creates a complex and diverse system that - while not directly conflicting with the constitution - presents a unique situation in which discrimination is both legal, and in certain circumstances, expected.

The constitution and these laws have since been amended to include other categories including LGBT+ persons as well as persons with disabilities. There are exceptions, however, as people with a criminal record may be barred from certain employment that involves interaction with vulnerable individuals. Discrimination on the basis of religion has also been reported despite the constitution and the legal code.

Moderate Uncommon Uncommon Moderate Common Common Uncommon Moderate Uncommon Moderate Uncommon
There are no laws against discrimination in Diamavya (despite the constitution declaring all citizens of Diamavya as equals), as free speech and the freedom of expression are highly valued, as such, certain forms of discrimination seem more prevelant than others. Calls for violence against others and hate crimes are considered illegal. People have the ability to sue in cases of libel and defamation of character. There is a active movement from the United Kingdom that wants to get discrimination laws in place but it has garnered little support since the Imperiat Protests. Only businesses are free to employ whoever they wish, and are free to service whoever they wish. The government technically can't discriminate someone based on the above, but it's been found to not hire anyone from the LGBT+ community, those with disabilities, and usually does not hire criminals.
