The World Assembly Report and Regional Comparisons is a statistics based report intended to track the region's World Assembly membership and endorsements of Delegate Dome Artan. The report is based off statistics generated by a spreadsheet maintained by the region's Delegate and is updated at each Major update. The report will be published weekly following the Monday Major update and the subsequent spreadsheet update. Ultimately the goal of the report will be to track the Union's development of its influence in the World Assembly, done through increasing both it's total memberships and total Delegate endorsements.

The report will also include a Regional Comparisons component as a means of evaluation for the region's progress. The region will be compared to similarly sized peers based on the Regions World Census ranking. Relevant regional Delegate endorsement totals will be displayed with the goal of the region to be favourably compared to these regions. This component will also include the region's current ranking in the World Assembly Endorsements Census for ease of access.

Beginning with the Fifth Edition the report also includes an Advanced Analytics section that incorporates various statistics far too difficult to gather manually. This section will chart the region's total influence growth (a main target of the PIG in the UDS program), the region's total World Assembly endorsements separately from the average endorsement statistic and the region's endorsement saturation. These statistics will be accompanied by the Union's respective ranking in each category. This entire section is only possible thanks to the NS renowned AugustinAndroid (the Moose) created by August.

Delegate Endorsement Percentage

World Assembly Membership Percentage

71.89% -0.36%

42.73% -0.29%

It is as usual a continuation of the trends from the last month or so, but to a far smaller degree. No category saw double digit changes and Non Endorsers only dropped by one. Both percentage measures did dip for by their largest measure since being tracked but even these are very small changes that are due to only a couple nations. As Drew Rush CTEs are replaced by the regularly joining foundlings, it becomes harder to convert newcomers into WA members. The Drew Rush nations after all came in with video instructions on joining the WA and joined at a much higher rate than would typically be expected. Hopefully with PIG and its relevant other programs in full swing now, newcomers, video entry or not, will be more inclined to join the WA.

Total Influence Ranking: 38th
Total Regional Influence: 1,023,994 +71,106

Since adding total influence tracking, this is our greatest total weekly gain and it pushes us over the one million total influence mark! Its a fantastic achievement especially considering the drop in nations has had next to no impact on it. Additionally it pushed us up another spot in the influence rankings as we now sit at 38th in the world. By next week I expect us to move up another spot, barring any unexpected CTE by a major nation.

Total Regional WA Endorsements Ranking: 13th
Total Regional WA Endorsements: 7,808 +172

We'd actually gotten within 40 endorsements of 8,000 but a couple WA nation CTE's to close the week knocked us a back bit to where we are now. Despite that we do finish the week up on total endorsements for the first time in a few reports. Hopefully the approach of Wednesday's awards can drive another uptick in endorsing like was seen this week.

Endorsement Saturation Ranking: 32nd
Endorsement Saturation: 22.45%

As always endorsement saturation is the total regional endorsements divided by the potential total endorsements if every WA member in the Union endorsed everyone. This percentage has climbed about 2% continuously since tracking started, the combination of declining WA Membership and gradually increasing total endorsements ensures that. I would not be surprised to see a levelling off of this stat, in fact I hope to see it. As further increases in total endorsements become harder to gain, a levelling off would mean our WA membership totals are finally stabilizing.

Current Average Endorsement Ranking: 7th

Current Average Influence Ranking: 1,860th

17.95 endorsements per nation

2,354.01 SPDR per nation

Our average endorsement ranking peaked just above 18 a couple days ago and was brought down by the same fall back mentioned above. We are pretty solidly in 7th, not to even mention solidly on the first page, one of our stated goals. It will undoubtedly be tough to climb any higher and just like with previous sections maintaining our statistical position should be the new target. Conversely a stat that will likely continue to climb is our other regional badge for average influence. Up about 250 rankings from last week, the influence rankings for the area we are in right now are very tight and thus easy to progress up, especially when gaining 70,000 influence a week.

The overall trend of stats might still be down but we do see more signs of what could be a return to stability, particularly in our uptick in total endorsements to close the week. The percentage declines though do indicate that we're going to need more World Assembly Members.

To join the World Assembly if you have not yet done so simply navigate to the World Assembly and press the button Apply to Join. To officially join the WA you must access the email associated with your NationStates account and click the link in the email sent to you. Now you are in the World Assembly!

The easiest way to increase our region's influence now that you are in the World Assembly is to endorse our regional Delegate. The Delegate votes on resolutions with a vote worth all of their endorsements plus one. This is why it is so crucial to endorse your regional delegate. To endorse the Delegate, or anyone in the region for that matter, go to their nation page by clicking their nation name wherever you find it (such as right here Dome Artan). Now just scroll down to the bottom of their nation page where you will find an Endorse button, click this to endorse that nation.

Want to do even more? Telegram Dome Artan and ask for a list of your unendorsed nations after you've joined the World Assembly or just check out the list of WA nations and endorse from there. Endorsing everyone in the region improves our influence gain, improves our voting power in the WA and improves our average endorsement ranking.

Much thanks goes to August for allowing the usage of the bot generated graphs from Advanced Analytics as well as for creating the fantastic AugustinAndroid.

Everything could be possible (except bad things as killing,...). Everything done would have an impact and we could see it. As a music note would change the wind direction or things like that... So we could link things and world would be the game and we could learn about our impact and change it easily.

A game where you can realistically play as an animal.
