List of national legal systems

Nation Legal system Details
Burgundie Bijuridical/mixed Burgundie observes common law in its Levantine provinces and crownlands and civil law in its overseas territories.
Caphiria Civil law The Caphirian judicial system is based on civil law and not based on common law. Its core principles are entirely codified into a normative system which serves as the primary source of law, which means judicial decisions of the supreme court, as well as those of lower courts, are binding within the frame of reference of each individual case submitted, but do not constitute the base for judicial precedent for other future cases.
Cartadania Common Law/mixed In Cartadania, the federal courts and 29 of the 31 states practice primarily common law. Two states—Haia and San Andreas—use a civil law system. In more recent times, majority of states, and their courts, have looked to each other for decisions on cases, especially those being decided for the first time. It is becoming more and more common for newer, younger states to look to the bigger and older states, such as those of the Hispania region, for guidance on how to approach certain legal matters.
Fhainnaeran Civil law/Other Fhainnin Law was formally shifted from a Common Law system to a Civil system in 1922, with modern concepts of jurisprudence maintaining that laws should be built on universal moral principles and applied on a case-by-case basis. The High Court alone holds the power to set some precedents, but this requires Council ratification and in practice does not factor into the vast majority of cases. Fhainic criminal law, however, includes some aspects of precedent with what are referred to as 'broad stroke' clauses, in which a jury may permit a judge to hand off a case in which there is no applicable law but clear harm to an individuals rights or person to a specialized upper court.
Fiannria Bijuridicial/mixed The Fiannic Law is a bijuridicial system established and developed over centuries. Formerly known as Culfran Law, it is a mixed system established on Adoneric Law (Civil Law) codified and developed upon as part of feudal and customary law throughout Culfran princedoms during the Holy Levantine Empire, along with common law practices and precedents developed by folk courts or local Tyns (or Things) held by individual parishes and shires. Furthermore, law in Fiannria had been developed through Canon Law as well.
Kiravia Other Kiravian law is based primarily upon the law of the Coscivian Empire, including its heritage of the Réstiálda or "Cultivated Law", which can be described as a form of customary law [to be expanded upon]. Many states, particularly those with large Gaelic populations, have incorporated Brehon law into their legal systems. In Kiravian law, individual precedents are not binding on future cases; however, if a particular precedent proves effective at addressing a certain legal question or resolving a certain type of dispute and becomes consistently referenced in later decisions, attorneys can eventually contend that there is binding tōngan or "consensus" on the matter, after which it is conventionally held to have become part of the Cultivated Law of that jurisdiction.
Each federal subject, as well as the federal judiciary and the military justice system, forms a separate legal system, each with its own body of cultivated law.
Ralvithja Common Law Ralvithja established a common law through the Institute of Law during the reunification of 1991. This common law however dates back to the establishment of the Ralvithjan Empire.
United Kingdom Bijuridical/mixed The United Kingdom legal system takes elements from both civil and common law, notably using an inquisitional system and bench trials, typical of civil law jurisdictions, but also employs many common law principles, such as precedent, implied repeals and statutory interpretation.
Urcea Common Law/mixed The Urcean legal system is a primarily common law system based on a long history of Royal edicts and rulings combined with a well-defined list of decisions rendered by Royal judges. However, precedent in Urcean law can be overridden by Canon Law where it applies, establishing a fundamentally mixed system.
Mellifera Bijuridical/mixed The foundation of Mellifera's legal system (and those of its commonwealths) is Urcean common law as it existed in the late 18th century, combined with some elements of Oklahoman tribal law, primarily in regard to land law. However, the precedents and principles established by Catholic Canon Law have seniority over common law, and Mellifera has adopted the Inquisitorial system and bench trials.
Nolis Common law The Nolisian legal system is fundamentally derived from Urcean common law, although the principles of Canon law have been removed from the legal system since the enactment of the Basic Law of the Republic of Nolis in 1972.
Takatta Loa Religous Law The Dominion's legal system is based upon the cumulative teachings of the Incarnates, the prophets of the Loa. All punishments are judged based on the Loa people's moral system of Divine Harmony that the teachings promote with sentences varying from reeducation to execution based how much a crime disrupts Harmony.
Pelaxia Civil Law Pelaxia's legal system can be divided into two main categories: private law and public law . This differs from the traditional common law concepts in which the main distinction is between criminal law and civil law. Private law governs relationships between individuals. It includes, in particular: Civil law (Derecho Civil]). This branch refers to the field of private law in common law systems. This branch encompasses the fields of inheritance law, civil law, family law, property law, and contract law; Commercial law (Derecho Comercial); Employment law (Derecho Laboral). Public law defines the structure and the workings of the government as well as relationships between the state and the individual. It includes, in particular: Criminal law (Derecho Penal); Administrative law (Derecho Administrativo) and Constitutional law (Derecho Constituciona])
