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.

This week had the largest changes seen since the start of the UDS WA Stats reports, in no small part due to the expected decline that last month's "Drew Rush" had always guaranteed. However the Union has so far remained relatively unscathed in all stats except base nation count. The Delegate actually gained a further 8 votes this week despite the region shedding a net 83 nations, for a net loss of 20 in WA members. The result of these opposite developments was the Delegate endorsement percentage rocketing up more than 6.5 percentage points to close comfortably above 50% for the first time. To conclude, although the Union has certainly been hit by the close of the "Drew Rush" the underlying WA numbers have never been stronger.

Current Average Endorsement Ranking: 31st
5.61 endorsements per nation

This week is the Union's best showing on the graph of the four editions published thus far. The region's Delegate endorsements are now comfortably in front of its most comparable regional rival and some ground has been made against the more well established large regions shown on the graph. However just like in previous week's the main regional comparison strength is the continued climb in Average Endorsements. This week we are only up one spot (32 to 31) but the actual numerical improvement is shocking as it is up half an endorsement from last week and a full one and a half endorsements from two weeks ago to sit at 5.61 endorsements per nation. Let's keep trending up Unionists!

Four weeks into the UDS WA Stats reports and two weeks into PIG in the UDS the region has shown definite improvement in WA related statistics. However it is clear that we are far from our true potential. To help the region achieve that potential all that needs to be done is joining the World Assembly and then endorsing Delegate Dome Artan.

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. While we definitely want to emphasize endorsing the Delegate, there is no need to stop there. Endorse the rest of the region's World Assembly members and improve our ranking in average endorsements.

Don't hold your endorsements hostage! No one benefits from you not endorsing, in fact you are likely to see an increase in your personal endorsements if you endorse others. Likewise if you are endorsed, endorse back!
