    You've got it back to front. First, what kind of World do your "people" live in? What technology do they have? Resources? Are they rich or poor?

    Culture stems from codes of behavior that exist out of necessity, so you must first explain what those necessities are. For example, in a land of plenty, theft might be a trivial offense since everything could be easily replaced, the crime of theft might be still be highly offensive on a cultural level though because in such a world people who stole from others would be stealing out of greed not need.

    On the other hand, in a land where water is scarce, the hoarding, squandering or destruction of such a precious resource might be a serious crime, but the theft of water while it might be severely punished would be an act easy to empathize with.

    Helping you would kind of defeat the purpose of creating your "own" culture.

    And I shall simply ignore the fact that this question is bizarre.
