The Laws of Mortality in tablet form.

The Laws of Mortality are a list of edicts created in 2555 AR in response to the devastation caused by the religious Oath Wars in northwest Garund.1 The Laws' authors include the philosopher Kalim Onaku2 and the militia of Azir. Although the Laws do not refute the existence of the divine, they forbid anyone from worshiping any god or other divine being. They are most widely used by the nation of Rahadoum and were instrumental in the country's founding.12

Within the nation of Rahadoum, the Laws are enforced by the Pure Legion, a trained militia who search any ship entering the country for religious paraphernalia, and harshly prosecute anyone caught proselytizing.2 However, as the gods are a powerful force in Golarion, this has not completely eradicated their worship. Native Rahadoumis find themselves called to a faith, and the country is also a tempting target for missionaries from all over the Inner Sea region. Small groups of worshipers exist throughout the land, but all are highly secretive.1
