Maybe the Falun Gong practitioners China? Their religion is prohibited and they get killed or tortured if they're caught practising it.
When the Declaration of Independence was written, all of the signers were committing treason. Also, the Underground Railroad was a good, illegal thing; at least if you aren't racist.
