How embassies work

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
