State Sponsors of Terror and Terrorist Groups
See: Designated Terrorist Groups and State Sponsors of Terror
Full sanctions are applied, and travel banned, to all designated state sponsors of terrorism. Exceptions may be granted for government officials and a few other individuals. Designated state sponsors of terror are:
Designated state sponsors of terrorism
Terror group(s) funded
United Arab Emirates
Countries under the jurisdiction of designated terrorist groups also have sanctions and travel bans placed against them automatically, whether recognized as nations or not. These include:
Terror group(s) in power
State of Palestine
Other current full sanctions/travel bans
Full sanctions and/or travel bans are applied to the following states, note that exceptions may be granted for government officials and a few other individuals:
After the democratically elected Rhodesian government of Abel Muzorewa was deposed by communist terrorist groups, Crockerland placed sanctions against the Mugabe government, overtly racist laws of Zimbabwe have made sure these sanctions stay in place. Zimbabwe never had travel bans placed against it.
Crockerland placed sanctions against the government of Yemen in 1995. An NLP-lead congressional inquiry on the matter made more public the numerous barbaric practices of the Yemeni government, most notably the continued legality of marital rape, and thus the sanctions were never lifted. A travel ban was put in place in 2015 during the Yemeni Civil War.
DPRK (North Korea)
North Korea bombed a South Korean plane in Myanmar in an attempted assassination of South Korean politicians in an incident known as the Rangoon Bombing. The Tatmadaw discovered the attackers' links to the Korean Peoples' Army and sanctions were put in place by Crockerland as a result. These sanctions remain in place due to North Korea's overwhelming atrocities against it's own citizens.
Sanctions were placed on Libya for murdering US personnel in the 1986 West Berlin discotheque bombing, a travel ban was put in place in 2011 following the country's collapse into anarchy.
Afghanistan gave shelter and aid to the Al Qaeda terrorist group, as a result a full trade ban and full travel ban were applied to the country in 2001 to avoid domestic financing of Al Qaeda or it's allies.
Mauritania allows the death penalty to be applied to individuals for apostasy and homosexuality.
Somalia is a failed state.
Apostasy, blasphemy, and "insulting Islam" became illegal in 2014 and carry the death penalty.
The Maldives passed a law allowing for the execution of children as young as 7 for crimes such as apostasy.
The government of criminalizes criticism of Islam, persecutes atheists, and recently called for vigilantes to "track down" atheists.
Countries with trade/travel banned only without government approval
A number of nations have trade and travel bans against them that can be circumvented with government approval for ordinary citizens. While exceptions may be granted for all sanctioned countries theoretically, the trade and travel bans against these nations are intended to be regularly bypassed, and are in place mostly to avoid enabling sponsorship of groups or individuals involved in wars the government does not wish to support.
Bangladesh allowed fighters from the Rohingya Solidarity Organization militant group, and possibly other such rebel groups, to lodge within it's borders, and partial sanctions/trade bans were applied to be sure no money would reach said groups.
The Congo (DRC)
After years of insurgency by the Allied Democratic Forces, a designated terrorist group & Al-Qaeda affiliate, as well as other groups, Crockerland passed partial sanctions to be sure that trade would only be done with reputable sources, and money would not fall into the hands of the terrorist factions or otherwise be used to further destabilize the country.
Central African Republic
Sanctions were placed to stop money from reaching Islamic militant groups rebelling against president Francois Bozize. After Bozize was ousted, Crockerland refused to recognize subsequent governments, and extended sanctions to all businesses and individuals not associated with pro-Bozize rebels such as MRPRC and the Anti-Balaka militias.
Nigerian Shariah law allows the murder of LGBT persons in several Nigerian states, and so sanctions are in place to assure money is not headed from Crockerland into those states; A travel ban was implemented following the beginning of the Boko Haram Insurgency.
The ongoing Insurgency in the Maghreb has lead to a number of partial sanctions in order to prevent funds from reaching terrorist factions such as Boko Haram or Ansar Dine
Nations of the Eastern Bloc, Axis Powers, and others have historically been sanctioned, but these sanctions are no longer in place for one reason or another. South Africa, Mozambique, Zambia, Uganda, the USSR, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Communist Poland, Communist Czechoslovakia, Communist Hungary, Communist Romania, Communist Bulgaria, East Germany, Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, Fascist Romania, Fascist Hungary, Fascist Bulgaria, and puppet governments controlled by those states had sanctions placed against them.
Notably, Axis-affiliated Japan and it's pacific allies (IE: Manchukuo) were not hit with sanctions by Crockerland during WWII, as Japan controlled most of the world's rubber supply.
