Non-Canonical NS Policies
Vegetarianism
Vegetarianism is compulsory
This is quite a common misconception of Paradeavenlisian States to outsiders and, in reality, meat analogues/vegan meat/meat alternative are legal and are quite prevalent across the country, which approximates certain aesthetic qualities such as texture, flavour and appearance and/or chemical characteristics of meat. In addition, meat production isn't entirely restricted as cultured meat, which is meat that is produced by in vitro cultivation of animal cells, instead of from slaughtered animals is also legal along with other forms of cellular agriculture.

No Automobiles

Although not as common, this non-canonical policy is also a relatively common misconception of Paradeavenlisian States to outsiders. In reality, like many other types of vehicles of transportation, cars in Paradeavenlisian States tend to be electrically charged, an environmental alternative to petroleum-run cars which are run by internal combustion engines.
