Alrighty, this one's a little late because I really didn't think it was going to go up for vote yesterday (it still hadn't reached quorum an hour before update) and also I just think it's really bad, lol.
Uh, as I said before, I really don't like it. There are two things that make me automatically dislike a bill. The first thing is when someone creates or reuses an existing organisation or department just to offload all responsibility onto that (for example, creating a department that sets regulations so that you don't have to do that work yourself in the bill). The second is limiting your proposal by relying on the best possible reading or intentions of everyone involved. Bills regulating expansion and development to protect the economy should understand they're forcing nations who don't want to do that sort of thing, to do that sort of thing. So here are some quotes from the proposal:
Cool, so any nation who doesn't want to do this can just say it's infeasible. Also what is "a good faith effort" and "as little environmental damage as possible" and how are those vague terms going to be enforced?
What is a reasonable level?
After this, we get into the usage of a previously-established organisation within the World Assembly, the EWSA (hey, that looks familiar :P). The ESWA is tasked with issuing permits to land reclamation projects that would otherwise violate the proposal only if:
I'm sure the pattern I'm drawing is clear. These also are not figures or numbers, they're relative limiter statements. What counts as "severely imperiling the health of a nation's population"? Is this saying that, if not expanding into the ocean means people are stuffed into the city, that such a path should be taken instead of expanding the city further out in the other direction? Can anyone just make a claim that oh no, they've totally checked into other possibilities?
Also what kind of environmental damage is going to be caused by not expanding into the ocean and harming marine ecosystems? Can we get some examples?
Again, "as little environmental damage as feasible" means nothing. It's a completely nothing phrase that anyone can get around by saying they just aren't capable of mitigating more damage. There's really just no point to this getting to vote, and no reason for it to pass. I'm for this sort of bill if it actually did anything, lol.
Good day everyone,
it's a bit late to talk about Z-day, the annual zombie event. I am doing a survey for an article for a regional newspaper on what well-performing regions had in common. So lets get to the questions:
How would you rate your region's Z-day performance, on a scale of 1 to 5?
Did you have something like central nuclear command, and did people follow it a lot?
How populous was your region last Z-day?
Any Additional Answers are welcome and needed ^-^
Goodbye and have a nice day!
Weird thing to say.
It would be inappropriate if I didn't say it was 5/5 considering that we cured and locked the 116-strong region in about six hours. This was coordinated on the discord server with Operations Councillor Chacapoya commanding targets in the chat so members could participate in the missile brigading.
Last year the region had 21 members at the time of Z-Day and was cured and locked in five hours.
Rating the rest of us a 0/5 because you forgot about the event happening seems a bit unfair to the rest of us who spent six hours clearing the region and not having a single death.
Basically the same thing Refuge Isle said above, I'd give us a solid 5/5. Like she said then, we had a spectacular Z-Day, clearing the region quickly of all zombies and not having any deaths. Chacapoya coordinating through the Discord who we were going to collectively target and moving down the most populated list was smart and every one of us who participated worked together really well. I'm actually extremely proud of the people who played, because I think our result was pretty spectacular <3
Welcome Island of Euphoria, Classroom 2B, The School management, and Threnodie to Refugia!

Everyone here is super nice and helpful and we'd love to be able to say hello ^-^
If you haven't already, please consider signing up for the World Assembly on the left sidebar. By becoming a World Assembly member, you qualify to become a Refugia Member State. Member States can submit applications to get on our regional map, vote on embassies and referenda, and run for office. But the most important thing is that you just do as much as you want to; don't feel obligated to join in all the extra things that we do. We want to help you find things you enjoy doing and get you set up to where you can have the most fun possible while you're here, and if that's just chatting while answering issues, that's entirely cool.
Welcome again <3
