The laws vary widely from country to country. In North America it is only illegal on some of the islands in the Carribean and then often only for men. In South America only Guyana still considers it a crime (male only) with a life imprisonment punishment. No country of Europe has it as a crime. Many countries of Africa, Asia, and Oceania still consider it a crime. It is a crime in most countries which are heavily Islam. For a complete list of contries and the status of the laws see the attached article.
Thanks to crisw for creating fractured-name quizzes. I give you a nation's name in fractured form. For example: Singer pour is Singapore. You type in the nation's name. Spelling counts! To add interesting info about any of these nations, send me a note.
