A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.
Category: Civil Rights
Proposed by: Tinfect
The World Assembly,
Annoyed by the insistence regarding passing yet another pointless non-compromise that will merely facilitate legal abuses,
Acknowledging prior attempts to ensure that the criminal justice systems of Member-States operate in a just and ethical manner,
Dismayed by their failure to adequately provide protections from legal abuse and to provide closure and restitution to victims,
Seeking to immediately prevent any further abuses of criminal justice systems,
Protective confinement as the severe isolation of prisoners from contact with other inmates due to clear and present dangers to their life in the general prison population, or risks posed by the prisoner to other inmates in the general prison population,
Punitive confinement as the complete or severe isolation of prisoners from contact with other inmates and prison staff for any reason other than those established under protective confinement,
Inhumane conditions as: the refusal or withholding of necessary and healthy sustenance or of medically or mentally necessary healthcare; the maintenance of severely confined or crowded conditions, or conditions inferior to those mandated for prisoners of war,
The holding of any prisoner in inhumane conditions,
The holding of any prisoner in punitive confinement,
The holding of any prisoner in protective confinement without the informed consent of the prisoner, barring circumstances that render the prisoner legally unable to make such a decision, or circumstances in which the prisoner would present risks to individuals in the general prison population if not held in protective confinement,
The use of capital punishment for any crime that did not result in unlawful death, exceptionally cruel treatment such as torture or rape, or an exceptional betrayal of national security,
The sentencing of any individual under the age of majority, or any individual deemed legally incompetent, to capital punishment,
The practice of summary or otherwise extrajudicial executions,
The practice of forced prisoner labor,
That Member-States provide to prisoners accessible legal recourse for the investigation of any undue violence or abuse by prison staff,
That Member-States provide to prisoners sentenced to capital punishment accessible legal counsel and support, including access to appeals and stays of execution,
The use of the highest reasonable standards of evidence when considering the use of capital punishment,
That all executions be held at a reasonable date past sentencing, following any processing time for applicable legal requests, inquiries, and appeals,
That, in the case of a pregnant individual being sentenced to capital punishment, that execution be stayed until such time as the prisoner is no longer pregnant,
That protective confinement be be utilized only when there exists a clear and present danger to holding the prisoner within the general prison area,
That prisoners subject to protective confinement be allowed regular contact with psychiatric staff, and access to standard visitation,
That, once a prisoner has been subjected to protective confinement, all practical measures must be taken to allow their safe return to general prison populations as soon as possible,
Reserves to Member-States the right to determine the legality of capital punishment within their jurisdiction,
Clarifies that prisoners legally incapable of consent may be held in protective confinement as a strictly temporary measure until a legal guardian can be contacted.
Security Council Proposal
A resolution to recognize outstanding contribution by a nation or region.
The World Assembly,
Praising the significant contributions brought about by the nation of Christian Democrats, to the World Assembly and the Nation States; including its skilled General Assembly ambassadors, its regional leadership abilities, and the several issues of great importance that have been highlighted and presented to national leaders by it,
Impressed by the numerous resolutions passed by Christian Democrats' ambassadors through direct authorship, and co-authorship, in both chambers of the World Assembly, which amounts to 13 resolutions: 12 in the General Assembly, and 1 in the Security Council; these resolutions have covered varying and momentous topics, and include: GA#213 which protects the right to privacy with some exceptions for criminal activity and other minor situations; bans on non-consensual marriages and marital rape in GA#160 and GA#231 respectively; GA#285 that provided member-states with the prerogative to decide upon the legality of euthanasia, and banned forced euthanasia; GA#310 which gave the franchise to people with disabilities; GA#233 which banned businesses from taking life insurance on their workers and subsequently profit over their deaths; and several others,
Recognising that Christian Democrats is the current and longest-serving delegate of Catholic, with 1260 consecutive days and over 2200 total days in that office; furthermore, during its reign as delegate, the region reached an all-time high membership record of 123 nations, and has enjoyed a long period of stability and security during this era, Christian Democrats also served as the High Councillor of the region from 2012 to 2013,
Applauding Christian Democrats' involvement in the liberation and subsequent refounding of Catholic, which included the authorship of SC#82 Repeal "Liberate Catholic"; the refounding of the region ensured that the region will be safe from raiders, and it succeeded in doing so as there were no raids of Catholic thereafter,
Observing that Christian Democrats served many positions in other regions, these include:
Officer of Internal Affairs, Officer of Culture, Officer of WA Affairs, Officer of Media, Speaker of the Assembly, and Citizenship Councillor, in The Rejected Realms, herein referred to as TRR, under the alias James ii; during its time in TRR, Christian Democrats was active in the regional legislature known as The Assembly, was responsible for writing the regional newspaper during 2015, and was one of the most remarkable and prominent members of the region at the time;
TRR's Representative to The Founderless Regions Alliance from 2013 to 2016, an alliance that was one of the largest defending organisations in history, it also served as Speaker of the Assembly from 2015 to 2016, and as Deputy Speaker of the Assembly from 2014 to 2015; it served as Speaker and Representative until the Alliance went defunct;
Noting the several issues of national importance that have been brought to leaders by Christian Democrats which are:
Electile Dysfunction, which dealt with different methods of electing a national legislature, such as proportional representation, first-past-the-post, ranked-choice voting, sortition, and plutocracy;
Foetal Furore, which addressed the issue of protests on abortion outside of abortion clinics, and allowed nations to ban protests outside of abortion clinics, allow them, ban abortion entirely, or ban the pro-life movement;
Bicameral Backlash, which highlighted the benefits and disadvantages of a bicameral legislature;
Clerical Errors, an issue that gave nations the option to allow women to serve as members of the clergy, ban them from doing so, or keep the government out of such matter;
Acknowledging that Christian Democrats maintained a comprehensive list of every known issue brought forth to the attention of national leaders for a period of approximately 14 months before it decided to pass the task to Drasnia,
Awed by the hundreds of debates that the World Assembly delegation of Christian Democrats participated in, which helped improve and refine numerous proposals and resolutions, and has certainly left its mark in the General Assembly,
Believing that a nation with as many accomplishments as Christian Democrats is certainly deserving of the honour of having a Security Council Commend bestowed upon it,
Hereby Commends Christian Democrats.
General Assembly Proposal
A resolution to improve world security by boosting police and military budgets.
Category: International Security
Proposed by: Cretox State
The World Assembly,
Recognizing the fundamental role law enforcement officers play in ensuring the safety and security of nations and their peoples;
Noting that in order to support this mission, governments often empower law enforcement officers with extraordinary authority over their fellow citizens, such as the powers to detain and apply deadly force;
Concerned that the misuse of such authority can and does lead to grave violations of the law, the sanctity of life, and the public peace;
Understanding that the concealment of crucial matters such as inquiries into violent incidents and law enforcement officers' violations of civil rights compromises public faith in law enforcement, the public safety, and the ability of law enforcement officers to perform their essential duties, hereby:
Defines for the purposes of this resolution:
a "law enforcement officer" (LEO) as an individual acting in an official capacity to prevent or investigate potential offenses against a criminal law, with the powers to apprehend or detain individuals suspected or convicted of offenses against a criminal law, as authorized by a government;
a "department" as an entity authorized to disclose records pursuant to this resolution;
a "personnel record" as any file maintained under an individual's name by a department, which contains any information concerning:
employment-related advancement, appraisal, discipline, or benefits; or
complaints or investigation of complaints regarding an incident which that individual participated in or perceived, pertaining to their conduct with regards to said incident;
a "final finding" as a final determination by an investigatory or determining body that the actions of an LEO are found to be unlawful or in violation of policy;
except as otherwise noted by World Assembly resolution, the personnel records of any LEO, and any information obtained from such records, are confidential and shall not be disclosed in any investigation or proceeding, excepting investigations and proceedings concerning the conduct of said LEO;
LEO personnel records must be made non-confidential and readily available for public consumption where they relate to:
an investigation or findings regarding an incident involving the discharge of a firearm by a LEO, or an incident in which the use of force by a LEO resulted in death or severe bodily harm;
an incident in which a final finding was made that a LEO initiated or attempted to initiate a sexual act through force or coercion, or under the guise of authority;
an incident in which a final finding was made of dishonesty by a LEO in the course of their official duties;
a department may only redact a personnel record disclosed pursuant to this resolution so long as said redaction serves any of the following purposes:
to remove personal information, excepting work-related information regarding law enforcement officers;
to maintain the anonymity of witnesses and complainants;
to protect confidential information, so long as disclosure of such is specifically prohibited by international law or would constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy;
when the disclosure of certain information within said record could reasonably pose a significant physical danger to a LEO or other individual, or a significant danger to national security;
no part of this resolution shall be construed to limit the public's right of access to information as established by other international law;
a department may withhold disclosing a personnel record concerning an incident that is the subject of an active criminal or administrative investigation or criminal enforcement proceeding, so long as disclosure of such could reasonably be expected to interfere with said investigation or proceeding.
Security Council Proposal
A resolution to express shock and dismay at a nation or region.
The World Assembly Security Council,
Aware of the sixteen-year long, iron-grip control, that the leader of Mikeswill holds over the region NationStates, an oddly-named region which paradoxically shares a name with the multiversal plane that all known nations exist on,
Acknowledging that, during this sixteen-year reign, the leader of Mikeswill has led multiple countries - one of which, Mikes hope, was leveled to the ground due to godly wrath, likely as a result of the leader's maleficence,
Deploring the illusion that is used by the leader of Mikeswill in order to make NationStates appear to be more democratic than it actually is, through the use of satellite states under their control - a decision that is used to avoid criticism, exemplifying their tyrannical rule over the region,
Disgusted by the public, daily display of oftentimes sensitive information of nations within NationStates, ultimately showing that the despotic ruler of Mikeswill cannot be trusted, even by those who are said to be under their protection,
Denouncing the artificial inflation of regional population during the apocalypses of the undead, ultimately and intentionally leading to more suffering in the world during these times, solely for the international praise that may come from "curing" the damned,
Scorning Mikeswill's utter, relentless disdain towards this prestigious body, voting against nearly all proposals put forth before it - a belief that is so vile, annoyingly repetitive, and prominent that it ultimately caused the regional descriptor of "Anti-Security Council" to be made available by the international community,
Further decrying the fact that Mikeswill's hatred towards this most august assembly spreads beyond their own borders, seeing as the leader of Mikeswill has chosen to banish all nations who vote for any proposal to liberate a region, one of the most important and discernible functions of this chamber,
Noting that Mikeswill is the figurehead of the nation of The Highlander 1, notorious for their friendship and support of infamous raider regions, which has effectively resulted in a shield protecting NationStates from invasion, all while other innocent regions continue to be subjected to destruction at the delight of Mikeswill, completely contrary to the Friends With All; Aligned With None mantra of NationStates,
Impressed by Mikeswills artwork galleries, which exceed nearly all other nations in magnitude, yet saddened to realize the tactics employed in order to acquire these collections, which include:
Abusing power and position to coax innocent nations into selling art well below their presumed value,
Contributing to massive value crashes of well-known artwork through participation in the process of counterfeiting for personal gain,
Using preexisting artwork collections to produce more favorable deals on the market,
Monopolizing hard to find artworks appraised as legendary by critics, artificially increasing scarcity and price,
Attempting to hide artwork via their satellite nation of The Highlander 1,
Concluding that, amid the nations who have made a career out of wreaking international havoc and ruthlessly ruling under the guise of peace and love, Mikeswill prevails as among the most prolific and tenured,
Hereby condemns Mikeswill.

General Assembly Proposal
A resolution to promote funding and the development of education and the arts.
Category: Education and Creativity
Area of Effect: Free Press
Proposed by: Foril
The World Assembly,
CONCERNED that there is currently no World Assembly legislation that protects wartime journalists,
HORRIFIED that wartime journalists may get wounded, kidnapped, or even killed on the frontline simply for doing their job, and
SEEKING to introduce better protections for wartime journalists to facilitate better transmission of information and better protection of lives,
HEREBY ENACTS the following:
For the purposes of this resolution:
a "war zone" is an area in which acts of war are ongoing,
"journalistic activities" are actions conducted with the express purpose of publishing information in the media, such as collecting information about the events of a war, interviewing local people and military personnel in the war zone, or taking photographs or videos of the war, and
a "wartime journalist" is a civilian wearing clearly visible identification that identifies them as a member of the press, and who is undertaking journalistic activities in a war zone.
Wartime journalists must be allowed freedom of movement in war zones and will not be denied access to an area to report on events there, unless such restriction is absolutely necessary to prevent harm to individuals or they are trespassing on private property.
Wartime journalists may report on any activity that occurs within a war zone, unless reporting on such activities could lead to loss of life or property, harm to individuals or property, or the jeopardisation of military efforts.
The protections enumerated in Articles 2 and 3 are subject to prior and standing international law. They shall not be granted to any wartime journalist who:
is carrying weapons,
interrupts active combat situations,
enters or passes through any location, if doing so is likely to lead to imminent loss of life or harm to individuals, or to the jeopardisation of military efforts, or
otherwise violates the provisions of this resolution.
