World Assembly Resolutions
Since the rise of the World Assembly from the ashes of its predecessor, the Bureaucracy That Cannot Be Named, WA member nations have worked tirelessly to improve the standard of the world. That, or tried to force other nations to be more like them. But that's just semantics.
Below is every World Assembly resolution ever passed.
General Assembly Resolution # 687
A resolution to increase the quality of the world's environment, at the expense of industry.
Industry Affected: All Businesses - Mild
Proposed by: Namwenia
Recognizing artificial light pollution as the presence of unwanted, inappropriate, or excessive artificial lighting directly resulting from most modern, industrialized societies;
Acknowledging that excessive artificial light pollution minimizes the visibility of celestial objects such as neighboring planets, moons, or stars;
Noting that gazing into the night sky is an ancient tradition from time immemorial universally acknowledged by nearly all sapient cultures;
Therefore, the following shall be enacted:
The date following the approval of this proposal, as determined by the calendars widely accepted in each member state, shall henceforth be known as Star Gazing Day.
The World Assembly urges member states to minimize artificial light usage, except wherever necessary, beginning at sundown on Star Gazing Day.
The World Assembly further encourages sapient citizens of member states to take time during the evening on Star Gazing Day to look out into the sky and enjoy the splendor of the heavens.
If there are existing regional, national, or local holidays that occur concurrently with the date selected for Star Gazing Day in a member state, the World Assembly encourages member states' celebration of the spirit of Star Gazing Day on a separate, nearby date.
Security Council Resolution # 470
A resolution to strike down Delegate-imposed barriers to free entry in a region.
The Security Council,
Believing in each region's right to self determination, free from tyrannical rule by occupying forces,
Understanding that while Portugal de Esquerda's heydays are long past it, the region continues to serve as a gathering place for left-wing nations with a common linguistic identity,
Noting that Portugal de Esquerda has been the target of invasion by hostile fascist forces bent on turning the region into one of its prize colony regions,
Acknowledging that continued occupation will result in the permanent destruction of the region's role as a community hub, particularly wherein it pertains to Portugal de Esquerda's linguistic community,
Thankful that a Liberation can surmount the walls erected around Portugal de Esquerda by its invaders, once more opening the region's doors to like-minded nations and reknitting the cultural and ideological bonds of the region's inhabitants,
Hereby liberates Portugal de Esquerda
General Assembly Resolution # 688
A resolution to enact uniform standards that protect workers, consumers, and the general public.
Area of Effect: Legal Reform
Proposed by: Simone Republic
The World Assembly (WA),
Noting that the right to a fair trial and due process have been long-standing concerns for the WA;
Recognizing that no regulations govern bail arrangements, especially excessive cash bail that discriminates against the poor;
Bail to mean conditions imposed on the conduct of a suspect in return for releasing a suspect from custody prior to a hearing, such as, in order of severity:
restrictions of conduct, such as, merely as examples, curfews or confinement to particular residence(s) or workplace(s);
the pledge of cash or items of monetary value ("cash bail") which may be forfeited if a suspect fails to return to court;
Charges to mean the offences for which a suspect has been duly charged with;
Court to mean a competent judicial body adjudicating on criminal matters in the WA state ("that WA state") where the suspect is facing the charges;
Hearing to mean a court hearing, including pre-trial proceedings, trials, and appeals;
Suspect to mean any individual facing charges, or who has been convicted but has not exhausted all appeals, according to the judicial process of that WA state;
Hereby requires that a suspect may not be denied bail by a court unless:
the suspect is found to have a prima facie case to answer or is duly indicted; and
the suspect is charged with a "serious" criminal offence as defined by the laws of that WA state; and
the suspect satisfies at least one of the conditions in the following sub-clauses:
The suspect is deemed by the court to be:
hostis humani generis;
charged by that WA state with an offence pursuant to aut dedere aut judicare; or
at extreme risk of:
endangering the safety or welfare of anyone else; or
The suspect has a demonstrable track record of:
repeatedly failing to meet all conditions of bail determined by a court; or
attempt(s) to interfering with witnesses or otherwise obstructing the course of justice;
Hereby requires a court to consider imposing bail conditions other than cash bail only if less severe alternatives are deemed grossly inadequate for the purpose of bail and solely as an alternative to not granting bail altogether;
Hereby requires a court, if it decides to impose cash bail, to:
Ensure that it is used only if the court deems the suspect to be extremely likely to abscond and has the means and incentives to do so; and
Satisfy itself that the amount of cash bail should reflect the financial circumstances of the suspect; and
likely for the suspect to raise such funds without facing financial ruin; and
not exceeding the maximum penalty and/or restitution required if the suspect is convicted and all appeals exhausted;
Inform the suspect of the cheapest means to raise such funds, such as (as an example) through charities, if that WA state permits cash bail and permits funds to be raised via commercial means;
Inform the suspect, if the suspect is a citizen of another state, to potentially seek assistance from that other state to help fund the cash bail;
If a suspect that utilized commercial means to raise funds for bail is acquitted (or vacated) of the offence(s), the full commercial cost of the bail should be compensated for;
Hereby directs a court:
To apply leniency in granting bail towards anyone charged for a first-time alleged offence, or for crimes that are not violent in nature;
To not revoke bail unless due to extreme changes in circumstances, such as (merely as an example) if the suspect is duly convicted of another offence when out on bail;
Hereby deems it an offence for anyone:
In a capacity as law enforcement officer or as a prosecutor to offer bail conditions as part of a plea-bargain;
To coerce or entice a suspect into declining to apply for bail;
Hereby clarifies that this resolution does not:
Prohibit a suspect from voluntarily declining to apply for bail for any reason;
Prohibit a WA state from restricting or banning cash bail (or commercial forms of cash bail) altogether;
Interfere with a court's decision not to grant bail altogether;
The judiciary of that WA state is responsible for interpretation of this resolution.
Security Council Resolution # 471
A resolution to express shock and dismay at a nation or region.
The Security Council,
Seeking to bring to the attention of the world and denigrate nations that show a disregard for any and all morals and human rights, hurting their own citizens with the reprehensible, and knowing no nation that so viciously exemplifies this more than The Libertarian Paradise of Cashdeer,
Astounded by the fact that Cashdeer has soared into the lead as the nation with the most unconventional longevity strategy where citizens exit the stage of life at a mere 14 years old. Yet, a ghastly truth unfurls: this soaring death rate finds an unsettling ally in Cashdeer's notorious distinction as the global epicenter of crime. The nation's canvas has eerily darkened, rendering it a dystopian playground where miscreants revel unchecked, reducing the citizenry to cowering shadows within whatever shelter may offer respite from the relentless storm of brutality. This is most definitely fueled by the utter failure of Cashdeer to keep violent weapons out of the hands of criminals, leading to the nation being the one with the most deadly weapons anywhere in the multiverse, with over three hundred such weapons per person.
Revolted at the Cashdeerian governments reprehensible stance on the fleeting nature of life at an early age, leaving children to fare for themselves in the wilderness or on the streets, which teaches them to be brutal and violent in order to survive. These children, lacking physical and emotional care during their upbringing, becoming the criminals and miscreants that rain havoc down upon the nations, and are far more likely to abuse substances as is so common in the nation.
Shocked by Cashdeer's dubious distinction as the realm of the most corpulent populace, with its citizenry universally entangled in a web of health woes and inching their lives toward agonizing ends amidst the glaring absence of adequate healthcare. This epidemic may be due to the veritable deluge of sweetened beverages ("sodas") flooding the nation's borders, ruining livers irreversibly.
This disconcerting pattern of poor health continues with the alarming degree of recreational drug use in Cashdeer, a damning testament to a society ensnared by addiction and substance dependency. The landscape of Cashdeer is fraught with shattered lives, a testament to the government's resounding failure to stem the tide of dangerous substances or salvage those ensnared in their destructive grasp.
Disturbed by Cashdeers leader, CEO Moneybags, and by its faith, Worship of Money, which implies that money and obtaining it is the driving force of the government instead of helping the citizens, and that Cashdeer's very existence seems woven with the threads of callous calculation that riches are the ultimate goal and trump the preservation of life and health. This suggests that the dire health crisis is not an unfortunate oversight, but a deliberate design to fatten the coffers of a government that revels in the misfortune of its people.
Disgusted at Cashdeers wearing of the ignominious crown as the world's most charmless nation, positioned atop cautionary lists that implore travelers to steer clear of its inhospitable embrace. Within this somber canvas, a distressing revelation emerges: Cashdeer's dismal standing as the second most rude nation. This glaring lack of civility casts a stark shadow, perpetuating an atmosphere that repels even the most intrepid seekers of experience.
The many awful things that are done and even celebrated in Cashdeer come to light with the revelation of their barbaric practice of human sacrifice, an awful business which takes away the life of a sentient being, and one which is almost certainly practiced by the Cashdeerian government itself, enforcing the Worship of Money and taking the organs from the human sacrifices in order to create exports and generate profit.
Peeking behind the curtain in horror at Gynostan and Cutote, nations subject to the same administration that rules Cashdeer. Gynostans rabid hatred of men leads to a nation which oppresses half of the population, forcing them to work in an effectively slave-like manner for one of the largest militaries in the world, which is done in the name of their belief in Goddess Worship, an absolute one.
Appalled at the sheer corruption present in Cutote, which is ruled by the oligarchy that relies on bribes and favors to run the country, at the expense of the Cutotian citizens, whose poor have very little of the countries wealth in one of the largest gaps between the haves and have-nots in the world.
Believing that such deplorable actions by the government of Cashdeer, leaving a society of neglected criminals, with incredible health issues and a misuse of substances and money alike being common and even expected, marking a society which cant cohesively function and is falling apart at the seams, which is perpetuated for profits by the corrupt government, deserve no place at the world table and should be denigrated by the World Assembly,
Hereby Condemns Cashdeer.
General Assembly Resolution # 689
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
General Assembly Resolution #684 “Challenging Sexually Exploitative Recordings” (Category: Moral Decency; Strength: Mild) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
Expressing its disgust in activities cited in the target resolution, namely the distribution of "revenge pornography", "upskirting" and "downblousing";
Acknowledging the purported intent of the target resolution to "challenge" such activities;
However, dismayed that the resolution contains significant loopholes that impede implementing this resolution, and, in some cases, potentially impeding anyone seeking redress for such activities;
In particular, aghast that operating clause two's very specifically wording requiring all WA states to "to outlaw... wilful distribution of, and threats to distribute [said] recordings" and the very narrow exception "where their distribution occurs in a judicial or policing context and is necessary to help convict a person of an offence defined in this Article" means that:
evidence drawn from such recordings cannot be used in other criminal cases (outside of those "defined in this Article"), even if the cases more serious in nature, such as, merely as examples, domestic abuse or murder;
the aforesaid evidence also cannot be used in settings such as administrative procedures, arbitration and mediation proceedings, and also cannot be used in civil proceedings in court (such as, merely as examples, civil cases for recovering damages for emotional distress and trauma), thus defeating much the purpose of this resolution;
Looking forward to a well-written resolution to address this topic in due course;
Hereby repeals the target resolution, "Challenging Sexually Exploitative Recordings".
