Article Two

Incitement of ethnic hatred and unleashing of chauvinistic sentiments within the Kazantip Republic is considered one of the most enormous offences against the national ideology which aims to achieve the world supremacy through peaceful means i.e. through accumulation of the brightest, the most cheerful and genial people from the entire planet. Citizens seen sabotaging the hospitality policy will be arrested by the Morality Police of the Kazantip Republic and deported ruthlessly regardless of their status or ethnicity.

Article Three

Sexual harassment and caddish behavior towards citizens of the Kazantip Republic, however easy to get they may look is penalized under the Criminal Code as severely as any other crime – with deportation. Besides, despite the prevailing atmosphere of free and easy nudism, promiscuous sexual relations in inappropriate places are by no means welcome in the republic. The Fast Married institution (Article 15) is intended to regulate sex life of citizens, so, if anything, the Morality Police won’t hesitate to catch you butt naked in the act of wrongdoing.
