[349] Death Penalty / 死刑, 2011

Blacked in countries use the death penalty as a legal form of punishment.  Black outlined countries have put moratoriums on, or abolished the death penalty in practice, but not legally.  White outlined countries have outlawed the death penalty, but reserve the right to use it in extreme cases, as in times of war.  Green countries have abolished the death penalty for all crimes.  The date in each country represents its last recorded execution.
