Ralvithja
Euthanasia is illegal, but assisted suicide is legal. Euthanasia has never been legal in Ralvithja, but for those who grow old, suicide has always been socially accepted, as they must judge whether or not they are a burden on the household. In ancient times, it was common during harsh winters when food was sparse for the elders of the village to gather outside for one last drink together, before each walking of into the snow, never to be seen again. Those unable to stand would be assisted by those who had the most strength left. This tradition has been shaped by modern medicine, now it is common that the old in the country reject life support, but for those who suffer excruciating pain, it is also acceptable to commit suicide with the assistance of medical personal.
