List of national legal systems
|Calderan law was first established as common law through Gothic migrants, but over time the judicial system slowly became civil as offenders were viewed case by case instead of as a whole.
|Burgundie observes civil law as spelled out in the Burgoignesc Code of Laws, Temporal Sins, and Their Punishments.
|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.
|In Cartadania, the federal courts and 35 of the 37 states and territories practice primarily common law. Two states—Bahia and São Andreas—use a civil law system. In more recent times, the majority of states and their courts have looked to each other for decisions on cases, especially those being decided for the first time, for guidance on how to approach certain legal matters.
|Common law is the sole body of law observed in Duōmachāha.
|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.
|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.
|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.
|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])
|Loa Republic's legal system is based on the mahusakapu, a theory of law derived from Islamic Sharia and developed by the High Fane. Crimes are compared against the various Anaheunna, the teachings of the Incarnates, then by the Loa Holy Books of Ecdysis. Finally, the consensus of a jury of holy men is used in the event that a crime cannot be judged by any holy text, whose ruling serves as the standard of all future judgement.
|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.
|Vithinjan civil law is based on the Vithinjan constitution and the former civil laws of the Vithinjan republic. These do not mix well leading to Vithinjan law often being contradictory. Because of this the Union of Justice has spent a lot of its existence attempting solve all of these contradictions, but after 70 years they are still far from done.
|Puertegan civil law is based on the constitution and legislative decisions of the National Assembly, however unlike many other countries utilizing civil law the judiciary is almost completely devoid of separation from the government meaning that cases are highly politicized as well as the courts being completely subordinate to the legislature and juries almost never being used in trials.
