How embassies work

Wednesday May 15, 2019. 06:47 PM , from BoingBoing
Embassies are basically 'mini countries abroad,' according to this explainer video from Wendover Productions. I learned that diplomats in embassies are:

exempt from taxes in their host country
allowed free movement around their host country
can carry diplomatic bags that cannot be seized or searched
are granted diplomated immunity
treated by the host country the same way in their private residences as they are in the embassy
