The natural rights is a collection of laws set down by Qakhomatze shortly after his coronation. These laws can easily be considered as part of the Illomi constitution, and are considered to be immutable and eternal, and thus cannot be overridden by any other laws on a general basis. The only legal restrictions on the natural rights are those included within each freedoms given by nature. Loss of a right can only occur after being sentence by a Court of law.

The natural rights grants the following freedoms:

  • The freedom of life.
    • Any being considered to have a soul has the right to continue to live, as long as their soul is present, for as long as life is viable, and for as long as they themselves deem acceptable.

      This natural right makes murder illegal, however it does open for infanticide, limited geriatricide, euthanasia, and suicide. There's also no causes against capital punishment within this right.

  • The freedom of movement.
    • Any being considered to have a soul has the right to move from place to place in Illte, as long as such movement does not occur on places set aside for specific use.

      This natural right makes two notions, that movement is a natural right, and that one can set aside spaces where movement is restricted. As long as a space is not set aside for specific use, anyone has the right to pass along, by, and through any space. The use of non-specific spaces, however, are not guarantied.

  • The freedom of earnings.
    • Any being considered to have a soul has the right to earn a living, as long as such earning does not violate any other being's natural rights.

      This natural right gives every being a right to earn a living, but does not guarantee such. The right to earn a living does not grant the right to amass wealth, though.

  • The freedom of action.
    • Any being considered to have a soul has the right to act reasonable and honorably. No being considered to have a soul has the right to act against another beings' person or property.

  • The freedom of thoughts.
    • Any being considered to have a soul has the right to think as they themselves deem to be acceptable, and the right to express such thoughts in writing, casual speech, or any other means of expression. The sharing of thoughts shall always be a foundation for civil society.

      This natural right gives every being the right to participate in discourse, not the right to free speech as in any speech without limit, but only the right to have your own opinions and to share those with anyone, by any means.

  • The freedom of speech.
    • Any being considered to have a soul has the right to speech, by any means or manner, as long as said expression does not cause a disturbance, results in harm to other being, or goes against the perpetuation of society as a whole.

      The natural right of speech differs from the natural right of thought in that it's about speech not meant as an expression of opinion. It does however limit general speech in such a way that neither noise, causing panic, or speech for the destruction or destabilization of society is protected.

  • The freedom of sex.
    • Any being considered to have a soul has the right to have sex with anyone else, as long as they do not violate any other's right to the same.

      The only natural limitation on the right to have sex implies that you do not have the right to force anyone into having sex, participating in any manner, or to observe you having sex. As the freedom doesn't specify a restriction on who can have sex, there is no limitation on age, gender, or sexual orientation, in Illte. Though other natural right, and laws based on them, may place other limitations on sexual expression.
