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 # 504
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 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 an 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 law, 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;
when the disclosure of certain information would constitute a violation of prior World Assembly resolutions;
no part of this resolution shall be construed to limit the publics 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 Resolution # 318
A resolution to recognize outstanding contribution by a nation or region.
The Security Council,
Comprehending the somber and demanding role of national leaders in maintaining the stability of nations and the integrity of governments throughout the multiverse against all odds,
Outlining the importance of rapid, decisive, and proactive decision-making on the part of national leaders to address potentially grave issues before they spiral out of control, and lamenting the fact that national leaders are often unable to engage in this form of decision-making due to issues not reaching their attention, or any response on their part being stalled by the slow and deliberate nature of a national government,
Most supportive of the tireless, hugely successful, and frankly paradoxical efforts of Nuremgard to covertly research potential problems that could compromise the functioning of every individual national government in existence, and their dedication to cutting through unnecessary red tape and allowing national leaders from all over the world to take effective action to solve these problems before they would otherwise be apparent to them,
Most impressed by the daily missions that Nuremgard undertakes to achieve the above, in which the nation's operatives stage incidents that present a menu of possible policy actions to national leaders in a succinct, comprehensive, and often amusing manner that can easily be understood by the average modern Leader, including:
Mission #1181, in which Nuremgardian agents risked humiliation pretending to actually care about jousting, in order to provide national governments with a supplementary stream of income and an easy way to keep their people happy with the way things are run,
Mission #531, in which Nuremgardian agents risked incarceration insulting national royalty on live television, outraging monarchs across the multiverse into making a decisive decision regarding lèse majesté laws,
Mission #710, in which Nuremgardian agents risked forced labor pretending to be disaffected serfs and forging economic reports, in order to ensure that feudal governments would be stabilized before their systems of serfdom could cause total economic collapse,
Mission #786, in which Nuremgardian agents risked their skins altering government reports on infection rates and pretending to be tattoo artists, in order to bring the issue of infections resultant from tattoos to the attention of national leaders before their nations could be decimated by full-blown pandemics,
Mission #545, in which Nuremgardian agents risked their sanity trying to sell national governments defective blenders, in order to bring the issue of expatriate voting to said governments' attention before it could compromise the integrity of elections in the eyes of the public,
Mission #596, in which Nuremgardian agents risked their lives to drug absolute monarchs and impersonate members of their royal courts, in order to force said monarchs to resolve the issue of royal succession before their nations could descend into civil war over the crown, and
Mission #780, in which Nuremgardian agents risked the existence of time and space itself by using quantum entanglement technology to implement a value-added tax in every nation in the multiverse, in order to push national leaders into addressing the essential question of taxation,
Emphasizing the Nuremgardian government's lack of any attempts to publicize or seek credit for their critical work in preserving national stability, including the aforementioned missions in addition to eleven others of equal significance,
Noting the unprecedented caliber of Nuremgard's operatives, who plan, arrange, and execute every one of their missions without any need for support from other nations, excepting review by certain shadowy and benevolent authorities dedicated to providing logistical infrastructure to assist in such missions,
Determined to recognize the unyielding hard work and dedication of this nation in ensuring the stability and integrity of governments throughout the multiverse, and believing that few nations on this front are more deserving of such an honor,
Hereby commends Nuremgard.
General Assembly Resolution # 505
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
General Assembly Resolution #501 “Wartime Journalism Protection Act” (Category: Education and Creativity; Area of Effect: Free Press) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
The General Assembly,
Reaffirming that wartime journalists provide an essential service to society and deserve the legal protections necessary to carry out their functions,
Concerned, however, that the protections provided in GAR#501 contain broad loopholes, which nations that wish to conceal their activities may exploit,
A nation which seeks to carry out a military operation that would violate international law, such as the offensive use of chemical weaponry on an enemy nation, may repel reporters under the claim that their presence would interrupt an active combat situation.
A nation which seeks to carry out a genocide of its newly conquered territories may shield those activities from journalists under the exception that such reporting would jeopardise the goals of its military efforts.
Observing that even in less extreme cases, a nation is able to strip reporters of their legal protection in situations where:
A journalist is in possession of any object which the warring nation may identify or attest to be a weapon, for such a term is undefined.
A warring nation deems any reporting of its military activity or other wartime information to be an act of espionage.
Believing that journalists who are adherents of a religion that carries ceremonial weaponry should not be forgotten by the World Assembly, or excluded from its protections in order to carry out their jobs,
Assessing that journalists are unable to carry self-defence weaponry into a war zone without losing their legal protections, rendering them vulnerable to the same brutalities the resolution sought to avoid when they may have otherwise defended themselves,
Resolving that the legislation must be repealed to allow for proper protections for journalists, as it blocks more comprehensive legislation which could rectify the present flaws,
Hereby Repeals GAR#501: "Wartime Journalism Protection Act"
Security Council Resolution # 319
A resolution to recognize outstanding contribution by a nation or region.
The World Assembly Security Council,
Recognizing Wallenburg as one of the most well-known and oft-acknowledged nations in the world, ultimately overcoming adversity to bring a remarkably egalitarian and safe society to its people,
Believing that the People's Republic of Wallenburg helped rescue millions of people from tyranny and possible persecution through their previous annexation of the Holy Republic of Wallenburg, ultimately manifesting in what is today a more benevolent union of the two, the Sororal Republics of Wallenburg,
Impressed by the National Assembly of Wallenburg, the two hundred and fifty-six delegates of which hold near-complete legislative and executive authority over the nation, whose primary job is to ensure the continuance of a paradisaical home for the citizens residing there,
Admiring the very well-read, intelligent, and politically-informed populace present in Wallenburg as a result of the rigorous educational programs that are put in place by the government,
Astonished by the near-utopian economic state that is present within Wallenburg, which comes from harmonic sync between industry and the workers of the nation, ultimately ensuring that everybody has their essential needs taken care of through the use of welfare or other programs in place,
Praising the Wallenburgian World Assembly Offices for their continually outstanding work when it comes to matters of this fair body, chiefly through the leadership of former Chief Representative Helen Trevanyika, as well as the current Chief Representative Mikael Alex-Oliva Ogenbond, especially when it comes to the matter of ensuring that compliance with World Assembly legislation is enforced in all areas of their jurisdiction, through the establishment and use of the Wallenburgian Office of Compliance and Investigation,
Further staggered by the immense amount of work and dedication that the Wallenburgian delegation has put into the General Assembly specifically, through uncredited help given to countless individual proposals and resolutions, as well as through the production of nine credited resolutions for the chamber, including but not limited to:
Legislation that ensures access to sexual and reproductive education to all, through the form of GAR#369 "Reproductive Education Act",
Protections towards agriculture against invasive species that may harm the industry via GAR#431 "Agricultural Invasive Species Act",
Mandating that World Assembly member-states aid those who are victims of genocide on grounds of their economic status through GAR#450 "Don't Kill The Poor Act",
Environmental protection of natural underground aquifers through GAR#453 "Preventing Groundwater Contamination",
The establishment of an international court that ensures that non-compliance with extant World Assembly legislation is punished appropriately, by means of GAR#466 "World Assembly Justice Accord",
Respecting the Wallenburgian assurance that the inner workings of the World Assembly should be made more publicly accessible, as shown through their lengthy and well-served time as the Chief Minister of World Assembly Affairs in The East Pacific,
Further recognizing contributions made to The East Pacific through their time spent both as an Arbiter and Viceroy of The Conclave, the regional court,
And affirming that any nation which has been such a boon to the World Assembly and its influence at large, in spite of rising from a long and arduous history that, in other circumstances, may have made significant contributions impossible, deserves the highest recognition that the Security Council can bestow, hereby:
General Assembly Resolution # 506
A resolution to enact uniform standards that protect workers, consumers, and the general public.
Area of Effect: Legal Reform
Proposed by: Imperium Anglorum
Whereas court records are fundamental to the ability for the public to learn of and execute effective oversight on their judicial systems :
And whereas people of limited financial means have unconscionable financial barriers to their access of such documents :
And whereas it is the case that in many nations, knowledge of judicial decisions and doctrines is required to fully understand the law as it is enforced rather than as it is stated in text, meaning that such barriers make it difficult for poor people to determine what the law actually is :
Now, therefore, be it enacted by the World Assembly, by and with the advice and consent of the Delegates and Members, in this present session assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows :
Member nation court systems must to the best of their ability provide open access to unsealed court documents and their redacted derivatives in person, upon request, and online, charging no fees for the provision of such services. Reasonable limitations may be made to ensure the breadth of public access and the good faith of accessors. No limitation may be enforced on the ability of member nation inhabitants to read or reproduce such documents; nor may any copyright be recognised or enforced over documents produced by member nation courts.
The public has a presumptive right to all court documents, and such documents may only be sealed: (a) upon order of a judicial officer who has determined the specific and contextualised existence of a compelling need which (i) supersedes the public's interest in open access and (ii) is essential to preserve or advance the public interest or (b) if it is required by World Assembly legislation. When a court document is sealed, member nation courts must create and release a redacted derivative without the information that fails the test in the section above and, to the extent practicable, give reasons for the exclusion of such information.
All unsealed court documents and their redacted derivatives pertaining to a case must be deposited, upon the case's conclusion and within a reasonable time frame, with the Universal Library Coalition.
