Wyvernian laws

There are no laws in Wyvern regarding sexual activity and, except for the age of consent, everyone enjoys the same rights under the law. Marriages are not a state matter in Wyvern and thus same-sex marriage, like opposite sex marriage, does not technically exist, nor the rights thereof. Freedom of speech is an important issue in Wyvern, and to that end there is no law that protects from verbal discrimination. Hate speech does not exist in Wyvernian law.

Gender-identity and sex

The Government of the Kingdom of Wyvern allows people to change their biological sex to match their gender. The Kingdom demands that these people first visit a psychiatrist to prove that the gender and sex do not match.

The Kingdom recognizes only the binary genders of Male and female.
