Erotic contents, including pornography and sex toys, can be sold, but they must follow specific regulations:

  • They musf be sold in specific stores
  • The stores cannot have obvious signboards and cannot make advertises or have windows displaying their products to the public either
  • Anyone who enter such stores musf show documents that can prove their age
  • Buyers must write an agreement that they will not show these contents to anyone who is underaged and will keep porn contents(including hardcore and softcore ones) in a safebox or storages that are not accessible to children.

As a result, pornography is called "safebox entertainment" by some in Breuteria; besides sexual intercourse and nudity, any action or cloth that is sexually seductive is seen as erotic and is thus regulated.

Anyone who is 16 years old or older can buy contents with softcore erotic contents; but hardcore erotic contents are only available for people who are 21 years old or older. Anything that contains sexual intercourse, nusity, exposure of sex organs or female nipples is seen as hardcore erotic; other sexually seductve contents are softcore.

In response to this, the highest court of Breuteria has stated that "even if no real life child is harmed, any production that features a child-looking figure that does anything related to sex will sexualize children and will make people see children as potential targets for sex, and thus this is still harmful.") or too cute(including any anime-style characters) that does anything related to sex, including sexual intercourse, nudity, or anything sexually seductive, is seen as child pornography; Possessing child pornography without authorization is also considered as a criminal offense, only police officers, detectives or other people may possess them for the purpose of crime prevention(e.g. using them as evidence to prosecute someone for possessing or producing child pornography) and the possession must be authorized and they must give up the possessions once the reasons to possess them do not exist anymore, and the child pornography productions that are confisticated will be destroyed as soon as they are no longer availabe to be used as evidence for prosecution.

In Breuteria, showing anyone who is not an adult erotic contents is a criminal offense, and parents have the duty to lock erotic contents away so that their children will have no chance to see them; besides, showing anyone, be they adults or not, erotic contents without their consent can be accused of sexual harassment.

Education

Education in Breuteria is compulsory for 12 to 14 years; six years in elementary school followed by four years of junior high school and two to four years — depending on type — of senior high school, from ages 6 to 18 or 20. Enrollment rate for secondary education is 88% (2016). Parents can choose for children either public schools, which are free of charge, or private schools, mostly focusing on specialized fields of education not usually covered by public schools, such as arts and music.

Breuterian compulsory secondary education comprises three types. Comprising 63% of high schools in Breuteria is the common high school, which specializes in academic study and comprises four junior and two senior years. Vocational schools specialize in professional craft, in particular specialized industrial and physical craft, and are often accompanied with apprenticeship programs to assist integration of students in a work environment. It has academic study but is less focused than common high schools, and are regarded as complementary.

Unique to Breuteria are labor schools, which is similar to vocational schools in that both specialize in industrial and physical craft. However, unlike vocational schools, there's little to none academic study apart from those necessary for the craft, and specialization is extensive. Labor schools have an extensive entrance exam evaluating and examining the student's occupation of interest, academic skills, and discipline. Labor schools may charge a regulated amount of monthly tuition to cover apprenticeship fees. In the final years of labor school, students are employed to desired cooperating employers through two different options: the default 24 months of part-time work, or 12 months of full-time work, as part of the study and primary prerequisite for graduating. The latter option allows for a three-year labor school period as opposed to the normal four-year period, but demands more requirements on both the school and the employer's sides, and has a lower vacancy rate.

Upon graduating from a common high school, students may continue their education to colleges, separated into three kinds: junior, labor, and common. Junior schools issue an associate degree upon graduation, while the latter two issue bachelor's degree. Labor and academic colleges differ in what they specialize; labor colleges focus on education of industrial and physical craft, while academic colleges focus on other fields of study, in particular academic fields such as mathematics and engineering. After receiving a bachelor's degree, students may continue their education to graduate schools for higher, academic degrees. Graduate schools charge students for tuition on a monthly basis, unless the student has scholarship, which may be acquired through state-run scholarship tests or endowment programs.

On the other hand, graduating from vocational high schools grant students a degree of same level as an associate degree, while in labor schools, students upon graduation are given a degree of same level as a bachelor's degree, and may choose to continue their work full-time with their respective employers, or continue their education to graduate schools. Labor school graduates favor the former option, which is chosen by 82% of graduates according to a 2010 survey by the Ministry of Education.
