    In my micronation of Paxonia, I have a law that states that all women must wear heels over 8 inches all day or risk jail time. In the jail, the women are attached to a treadmill going at 5 miles, and are forced to keep up in really tall heels. If they don’t keep up, then they will experience heavy pain.
