Senate Leader Bill Nerades: Thank you everyone for coming to our president's speech here today. It's quite wonderful to see the turnout of citizens excited in acting out their civil duties. As you all know, we have developed many relationships with nation's abroad and even here in Fusea. However, we now have a chance to win safe borders and easily travel to friendly foreign lands without oceans or wilderness. Here comes the man that has given us a brighter hope for the future than many of those before him. Give a round of applause for President Jacob John Henry Lamais!

President: Ah,thank you very much. Ever since my, err, rather unusual election as president, I have been tried in many domestic situations. And while we sit comfortably as members in two international unions, we haven't really gotten to know many nations on a more personal level. I stand here today, not leaving to be entangled in messy international politics often found in unions, but rather to give the citizens of Pinguioris and Yemet a chance to know each other, not just as nation's and people's that border each other, but as great friends with a deep understanding of each other, and who can protect each other, not just far abroad as we have searched for in the past, but also close to home, since that is the most important part of us. I will be getting on a plane shortly for Yemet, and their we shall discuss, in detail, our relationship between our nations.

The president leaves the stand, waving at the wildly cheering crowd. In the distance, Appaloosa City's skyline has several new skyscrapers in the process of construction. The tallest, at three quarters of a kilometer, is a new international stock exchange, one that promises to launch economic growth to new heights. The plane leaves shortly after three o'clock, riding into the air with an escort of four military jets.

Here come the Taxmen. Those were the words that would flow across an area in whispers any time an Agent approached a Citizen's District. It's one of the duties of an agent, to remind those approaching debt to pay their taxes. And, to repo those too deep in debt. Repossession. It was scarily accurate of a term. Nox cleared his head and closed his umbrella, nearing the doors of Coromina Industries Headquarters. He looked up, to the highest point he could see. The towering glass facade of the intimidating building was interrupted by holographic advertisements of CI Products and the omni-present image of the Coromina Industries logo itself. He went in, and saw himself directly to the CI Collections Agents HQ. Floor twelve, it has a nice view. He approached the man at the front desk. Ak was working today. He had to be careful with his every word, this man wasn't so intimidating for nothing.

"Agent Alkonost, reporting for duty, sir."

Duty, Honor, Sacrifice. Not at all the words of Coromina Industries but they just as well encompassed our core tenets. Agent Alkonost, given name Nox Alkonost, was a star individual who took work wherever it was found. That was Duty.

"You have come well-dressed, comrade! Come, please, sit."

Nox never missed a beat when called upon to work under the hand of Coromina. He'd delivered so many repossessions that he'd lost count. Somehow, that was Honor.

"Of course, sir. I want to make a good impression with the Necerierrans-can't afford any corporate losses in the face of the Corominas!"

The giant of a man grinned, his voice lowering to an almost sinister tone.

"No, no you cannot...Here is your papers, have a safe journey, comrade."

And finally, Nox was the ex-leader of the largest rebel group in Corominan history, of which nearly toppled the Coromina Family.
Sacrifice.

An automated taxi awaited him out front. He didn't care to take out his umbrella for the few steps, and boarded the Taxi. Thankfully, it was prepaid, an uncommon luxury. This was an important job, no doubt. No point in sabotaging it.
-
The taxi arrived at the airport, which was nearly empty. The people of Coromina don't have much time for vacation, and we don't receive many tourists. Our environment isn't what one would call 'idyllic,' and we're not much for tourism-at least yet. A colony on the east end of the Capital is dedicated solely to creating a tourism district. He exited the vehicle, which thanked him in the standard, overly-passionate tone, and once he and his things were out of the car, he and the car parted ways. He walked quickly to the front desk, where a robotic staff member awaited him. It was an archaic model, and he prepared for the metallic, echoey voice of the older versions that hurt his ears. To Nox's surprise, its voice was soft and gender-neutral, unlike the older feminine voices or the newer, strangely English masculine voices. It must be a unique voice code to the airport staff, since he'd never heard anything quite like it before.

"Good evening sir, how can I help you?"

"I'm here on official business for Coromina Industries. My name is Nox Alkonost."

Though lacking the means for facial expression, he could feel the overly-enthusiastic grin come from it's face.

"Agent Alkonost, welcome! Here's your passport, mission statement, and proper paperwork for customs in Necerierra. Your flight for Nordlando boards in Three minutes, Twenty-eight seconds. Enjoy your flight!"

"Thank you, prosperous day."

Prosperous day. It was starting to grow on him. Talk like that was considered overly polite to most people, machines especially, but he liked the smiles it put on people's faces, so it became a habit, machines and humans alike.
Since he had time to kill, he began to read a book. Coromina Industrial may be a borderline-dystopia, but they could care less about what you say and read so long as it doesn't interrupt your work. He was a few pages deep in The Illiad, which he found a copy of during a repossession and claimed for his own; the uniform long coats have their perks.

Weather delayed the flight an extra hour, since thunder rolled in, but the night winds blew away the storm and his journey was back on. Nox was off, Necerierra-ward.
-
The flight was long, the Corporate Lands and Nordlando being on adverse sides of Osea. He arrived at sunset the next day, jetlagged and uncomfortable, and checked in halfheartedly to the hotel nearest the mayorial office. Tomorrow, he was to meet with the Necerierrans.
-
Nox rose with the sun that day, the day he'd been preparing for, and after spending hours getting ready, emerged to paparazzi and a fair share of activists protesting CI's involvement in Necerierra.
He walked to the mayor's office, ignoring the paparazzi semi-successfully and finding his way to enter.

City of Nordlando. A place where business thrives. A place where anything goes. A Place where...
You lose your humanity for the flesh of gold. At Day, Nordlando is bustling with merchant activity, selling their wares. The Police don't care whether the means to acquire those is shady or not, they pay bucks, they can go whatever they want. At night, Neon Colours shines brightly in the sky, as the Red Light and Adult Entertainment Industry shows its fangs. Human, Nekos, Kitsunes, and other beasts show their assets across the glass, baiting the depraved customer into their enterprise. Everyday, every degeneracy increased tenfold in Nordlando.

No Wonder it is called The Goldmine of Necerierra

Between those highrise building located near the centre. A Pearly White building stands out, not because it is tall, but because it has a reminiscent of colonial-era building, between the modern skyscraper. The Building is the Mayor House of Nordlando, where its Lady-Mayor, Lailessherz Liftoke Hoffmahn, resides.

"Damn, demonstrator..." said Laila as she looks below her, where activists protest about Nordlando deal with Coromina Industrial..."I really...really want to remove them right now..." For her, this is all just about the money. For all her life as a ruler, she learns that being compassionate will only earn you the sack here. She has to be a sociopath...a humanless human, to keep giving Necerierra their money. She has screwing their people for how longs now...and the upper-class thank her for it...

She sats down at the mayor office, Antique Things everywhere. A Skin of Hippos are scattered all over the floor, forming some sort of abstract art, Pictures Portrait of previous Lord-Mayor also exist here. Most of the instrument and things in that room is covered in gold...that's how rich they are..."1 minute more...If he is late I would reject him immediately..."

Exactly 1 minute later, A man in the suit, seemingly like a drone robot, enters the mayor room. "Good Morning, I presume you are Agent Alkonost? Please...have a sit. I am apologizing for the inconvenience caused by the protestor outside, I have ordered my task force to...remove them at a certain time." Laila giggles a bit, "Now, what business are you here to offer Agent Alkonost?"

Hellenaica

Declaration of Emperor Alexander

The nation of Hellenaica had been broken at the hands of the nation of Western Vapia, the spirit of the people had been broken. But as the post war years came, the people, and the government, would recover. The economy could never truley recover in the short period, but the resolve of the King could not allow the nation to slip further into obscurity. With a long term military build up program, the army would recover its lost numbers, and after extensive training, the military was prepared for expansion. A 10 year long campaign would follow with the Kingdom eventually annexing all of its neighbors to its NorthEast. With the dust settling on the far flung nation, the Kingdom controlled a large amount of territory. Far more than it had. They no longer were a Kingdom. They were an Empire. Armed with this knowledge, the government officially declared the King, Alexander Constantine I, as the new Emperor of Hellenaica.

Araika stands on the runway of the city ship Blood and Money, staring down a small cesna with wide eyes. She's a tall kitsune, with long brown hair, elegant features, and seven long tails sweeping out around her. Her staff, a man with a sharp suit and fell black hair, as well as a woman with a bob haircut and a power-suit, stand nearby, looking exhasperated.

"For the thousandth time my Lady. The conference is too far away for travel by ship. It doesn't matter how much plane travel clashes with your style, you need to take it." The woman says, impatience registering on her face.

Araika pauses, then nods. "Alright, if you say so." She climbs aboard the aircraft, sitting in the back with a rather pale face as her two aides clamber aboard.

Although she disliked showing it, Araika had a deathly fear of aircraft, and it showed now. The plane soars into the air, lraving the city ships behind like a child leaving its toys, sending a small shiver down Araika's spine.

The flight takes seven hours, during which, Araika stays quiet, curled up with an expression resembling a hostage in a kidnapping. Her staff talk among themselves, ignoring her as they approach the coast of Necerierra.

By the time they arrive, dusk is throwing splashes of violet into the sky, the city lights winking on down below. The aircraft swerves slightly as it approaches the runway, drawing a startled squeak from Araika.

One turns, looking back at Araika. "Alright my Lady, look sharp, we'll be driving you to the hotel that we're holding the meeting at. Some reps from Neceria will likely be there, so we can't have you looking like a scared mouse, alright?"

"Right." She shakes herself, and looks him in the eye. "Thanks Subaru."

With a bump, the plane lands, taxiing down the runway to a halt by the terminal. A quick security check, and a visit to the rental office, and the trio is on the Necerian roads. By the time that the sky is a pitch Black tinged by city lights, they arrive at the hotel. Subaru gets out, opening the door for Araika, who steps out gingerly, smoothing back an errant strand of hair.

Youssath

holy scheiße someone denounced my nation

From the Office of the Chief Representative of the Sister Republics of Wallenburg to the World Assembly
1943 RN Leptikost 11


By the authority of the Cabinet of War of the People's Republic of Wallenburg, and by the authority of the Joint Committee on External Affairs of the Sororal Republican Council, the Office of the Chief Representative to the World Assembly issues

A STATEMENT

and notice of Wallenburgian policy on furthering foreign compliance with international law. During the time allocated for the delegations of member states to discuss and submit Votes on the Security Council resolution to commend Auralia, hereafter referred to as the voting period, an ambassador from Youssath made several grossly inappropriate statements about the World Assembly, its staff, and representatives sent to it by member states. In addition, the ambassador from Youssath flaunted their government's noncompliance with international laws, in an effort to mock the World Assembly and all its members that dutifully follow the letter of international law. While this behavior is abnormal and reprehensible, it normally would not merit the degree of attention this Office gives this particular incident. However, the Youssathian government has not only failed to retract the statements of their representatives, but has chosen to attack the Deputy Representative to the World Assembly, Mr. Artur Holt, in an official public document. It has also condemned the Sister Republics of Wallenburg and a prominent regional ally to Youssath, The Kingdom of Prydania. This incredibly shortsighted action by the Youssathian Foreign Ministry serves only to humiliate the people it governs on the world state and burn bridges with fellow member states.

I - Establishment of Facts

Statements by the Youssathian Foreign Ministry:

In detail, the Youssathian Foreign Ministry document released to the public, hereafter referred to as the release, accuses Deputy Representative Artur Holt of "unprofessionalism and misconduct" during the voting period and demands withdrawal of his statements, and an apology to the Youssathian government. The release similarly addresses Prydania and their Ambassador Sonny Koefed. The release attempts to justify its claims and demands, also claiming that the Youssathian government expects "all SC ambassadors and representatives alike to be in their best conduct representing their nation." This, as an examination of the exchange between the Youssathian ambassador and the other relevant representatives will show, ought to merit condemnation of the behavior of the Youssathian ambassador far stronger than that of our own deputy or our Prydanian colleague.

The release also "officially denounces" the government of Wallenburg, and threatens to deliver "fire and fury" to any member state that enacts economic sanctions against Youssath as is required by the Administrative Compliance Act. Such statements are plain-faced threats against the sovereignty and security of not only the Sister Republics of Wallenburg, but also all member states in full compliance with World Assembly law. Such language is completely unacceptable, and renders the field of international diplomacy more dangerous. This Office shall examine this matter in its address to the Youssathian Foreign Ministry.

Dialogue by the Deputy Representative:

The Deputy Representative Artur Holt, known to the Office as an accomplished military officer, a shrewd diplomat, and a trusted friend, is known to serve the interests of the Sister Republics of Wallenburg well in Security Council matters. In addressing previously inconspicuous member states, Deputy Holt often gathers research items such as publicly available official documents to educate himself on them. From this very practice Deputy Holt discovered quickly that the Republic of Youssath openly violates multiple World Assembly resolutions, and therefore is a rogue state in the context of World Assembly matters. This Office and the government it represents hold that no member state that violates its promises to the World Assembly should receive serious consideration of any opinions their representatives may have on World Assembly legislation. Only those member states willing to comply with international law should have input on that law. To the extent that Deputy Holt expressed any negative sentiments regarding Youssath or its ambassador, he (1) accurately identified the noncompliant status of Youssath, (2) expressed this Office's stance on the rights of noncompliant states, (3) accurately noted that Youssath and its ambassador are not of great importance on the scale of the international community, and (4) refused to declare war on Youssath.

This assessment of Deputy Holt's statements during the voting period finds that he has represented this Office acceptably. While the Youssathian Foreign Ministry has the right to object to recognition of such facts as its broad noncompliance and statements of opposition to such behavior, my Office has an equal right to dismiss those objections. Were Deputy Holt to have truly shown some degree of "unprofessionalism and misconduct" during the voting period, this Office would enthusiastically retract his statements and take measures to encourage better relations with the Republic of Youssath. However, the record shows no evidence of "unprofessionalism and misconduct" on the part of Deputy Holt, whereas such evidence does exist for a different actor in the voting period.

Dialogue by the Youssathian ambassador:

The Youssathian ambassador, whose identity remains unknown to this Office, regularly reacted to Deputy Holt with demeaning and hostile language directed at the Deputy and the World Assembly on a broader scale. Among such statements are:

  • insults referring to Deputy Holt as "foolish", a "nitwit", a "warmonger", and "breeding vermin",

  • a reference to the World Assembly as a "weak and inefficient bureacuratic supranational organization that does nothing but merely sends sweet letters to noncompliant and 'creative compliant' nations",

  • attempts to provoke war between the Sister Republics of Wallenburg and the Republic of Youssath, regardless of the Deputy's lack of authority to declare war.

In addition to this highly unprofessional and insulting language, the Youssathian ambassador abruptly and pointedly removed themselves from the chamber on two occassions not to conduct any urgent business, but to make a point of their distaste for Deputy Holt and the World Assembly in general. Clearly, this behavior is unbecoming of any ambassador, especially one in the position of representing a government that has already insulted the World Assembly and its membership in official statements, including:

  • a condemnation of "the World Assembly Compliance Commission and the Administrative Compliance Act, stating that they are 'failed legislation and serve as a medal of honors against national sovereignty'",

  • inaccurate and regardless unacceptable insults describing the World Assembly as "nothing more than a bureaucratic inefficient and corrupted organization, serving the interests of a 'clique of nations' without appropriate representation",

  • a condemnation of "the General Assembly for its global intervention on basic national laws," arguing that "no useless nations from the other side of the world can dictate what we do", thereby simultaneously insulting every voting member of the World Assembly.

Given this record of hostility toward the World Assembly and its members, the Youssathian Foreign Ministry would do well to present an ambassador capable of defending their government's actions, and of maintaining civility when interacting with the delegations of member states. Instead, the Youssathian ambassador directs insults and threats at this delegation, and brags about the noncompliance of the state they represent. This does not represent Youssath positively, especially when the Youssathian Foreign Ministry "reaffirms its ambassador's statements during the Security Council session on Jul 24 2019 as the official stance of this Government". The Youssathian ambassador merits condemnation from not only the various parties offended by their antics, but by their own Foreign Ministry, according to the very standards set in the release, and yet their Foreign Ministry outrageously doubles down on the ambassador's statements.

Record of noncompliance by the Republic of Youssath:

As this Office has already made clear, the Republic of Youssath openly violates several World Assembly resolutions, and thus constitutes a rogue state among a body of otherwise compliant members. As Deputy Holt explained to the Youssathian ambassador during the voting period, member states that violate World Assembly resolutions are subject to fines by the Independent Adjudicative Office as established in the Administrative Compliance Act. They are also subject to "the strongest sanctions available" from member states, should they refuse to pay the fines as assessed by the Independent Adjudicative Office. A review of official statements reveals that the Republic of Youssath falsely asserts a right not to comply with international law according to the terms of the so-named "Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties", a document unknown to this Office and with no jurisdiction over the World Assembly. In reality, the process of joining the World Assembly requires member states to agree to comply in full with its active resolutions. As the World Assembly explains in its reader-friendly introduction to its operations, "The World Assembly is the world's governing body. It's your chance to mold the world to your vision, by voting for resolutions you like and scuttling the rest. However, it's a double-edged sword, because your nation will be affected by any resolutions that pass. (Unfortunately you can't obey the resolutions you like and ignore the rest.)" No nation can join without consenting to full compliance with World Assembly law. It is the determination of the Sister Republics of Wallenburg, therefore, that any state presuming itself to be a member of the World Assembly but openly ignoring its obligations to international law when they become inconvenient or undesired is a member not in good standing, and therefore possesses none of the rights or privileges normally guaranteed to member states.

The Republic of Youssath conveniently catalogs its violations by resolution, allowing for a wide, if not exhaustive, view of the scope of this noncompliance. Youssathian violations are as follows:

  • GAR #348, Convention on Ceasefires, requires member states to honor ceasefire agreements and armstices, and to participate in peace negotiations in good faith. It must be assumed from Youssathian refusal to comply that their government wishes to retain the "right" to violate armstices on a whim, presumably to further aggressive campaigns of conquest and atrocity.

  • GAR #354, AI Coexistence Protocol, guarantees synthetic sapient life the same rights under the law as their organic counterparts and prohibits the construction of autonomous self-replicating machines. While the details of noncompliance are unclear here, it is certain either that Youssath intends to retain synthetic people as a permanent underclass of inhabitants or to risk lives all across the international community in pursuit of potentially cataclysmic nanite swarms.

  • GAR #355, Rights of Sapient Species, guarantees all species of sapient life equal rights under the law, as best as can be managed given differences in biology. As with AI Coexistence Protocol, this signals an effort to oppress any nonhuman sapient life within the jurisdiction of Youssath, purely on the basis of not being the government-desired species.

  • GAR #356, Landmine Safety Protocol, sets in place regulations to dramatically reduce the number of civilian and post-war deaths inflicted by landmines. The refusal of the Youssathian government to comply with this resolution indicates nothing more than a desire to see as many innocent lives destroyed at its hands as possible.

  • GAR #358, Explosive Remnants of War, requires member states to demine or demarcate minefields, such that dangerous sites may be kept isolated from the public or cleared by member state action or assistance by the International Humanitarian Aid Coordination Committee. Once again, the requirements under this resolution are so minimal that the only material basis for refusing to comply is a desire to see innocents murdered by unexploded Youssathian mines.

  • GAR #389, Rights of the Quarantined, attempts to establish protections for the rights of quarantined individuals such that they are not abused or mistreated in the pursuit of containing epidemics. My Office has long opposed the resolution as it currently stands, due to several critical failures to actually achieve this goal, and certain wording that actually further endangers quarantined individuals. Youssathian noncompliance, is not rooted in this basis, although that would still not justify wholesale violation of its mandates. Rather, Youssath wishes to guarantee quarantined individuals no rights whatsoever in an appalling violation of sapient rights.

  • GAR #390, Compliance Commission, establishes the Compliance Commission to investigate and document noncompliance such as that already detailed above, and to be further detailed below. The only requirement of member states is to establish a liason point with the Compliance Commission, and to provide requested documents to the Compliance Commission, given their release does not impact state security. Refusal to comply with this resolution clearly stems from a desire to remain above the law, and to further Youssathian violation of other World Assembly resolutions.

  • GAR #399, Responsibility in Transferring Arms, widely blocks future World Assembly legislation on gun regulation, and prohibits the sale or transfer of arms to actors likely to use them for sapient rights violations or wars of conquest. Youssath violates this resolution to prop up warlords and stimulate wars of conquest, an entirely unacceptable violation of international law.

  • GAR #408, Ban on Secret Treaties, furthers the publication of treaties and prohibits secret agreements between states. That Youssath refuses to meet these mandates demonstrates a desire to maintain secret treaties despite their inescapable tendency to produce international instability and bloody conflicts.

  • GAR #419, Voting Equality for Freed Inmates, prohibits the disenfranchisement of previously imprisoned individuals solely on the basis of that prior incarcerated status. Disenfranchisement is a punishment and an illness on democracy, and for such a punishment to continue after an individual is presumably reintroduced to society is to hold citizens to the laws of their country while denying them the most basic political rights guaranteed to any other citizen in their country. Youssath must therefore seek to disenfranchise these individuals and further taint whatever exists of democracy within its borders.

  • GAR #430, Freedom of Religion, guards against prohibitions on faith or practices of worship, or requirements of faith or practices of worship. These protections, of course, act against the wills of the most totalitarian regimes in the world, whose taste for tyranny extends to control of thought when control of actions becomes too dull. It is in this totalitarian mindset that Youssath punishes religious worship wherever it is found, and monitors what religious organizations remain in its oppressed society. Where states such as the People's Republic of Wallenburg see to the elimination of faith by robust education and provision for the needs of society, the Republic of Youssath attempt to corral faith with force and injustice.

  • GAR #434, Preventing the Illicit Trade of Cultural Artefacts, places bans on the trade of stolen artifacts and establishes a robust system for returning such artifacts to their nation of origin. Noncompliance with this resolution necessarily mean that Youssath engages in the black market trade of stolen artifacts, either out of a desire to rob societies of their history or to profit off of harm to the culture of various nations.

  • GAR #436, Protecting Free Expression, places important initial protections on free speech, as is necessary to maintain even a modicum of political freedom. Youssath violates this resolution to stamp out dissent and free political thought, an outrageous policy coming from any state, but particularly revolting coming from a so-called republic.

  • GAR #440, Administrative Compliance Act, enacts monetary penalties for noncompliance. Obviously, Youssath cannot accept this. It violates this resolution by refusing to pay its fines, which I imagine would totally exhaust the Youssathian treasury and its capacity to borrow money from other entities due to the sweeping, fully intentional, and ever-increasing nature of its noncompliance.

  • GAR #442, Circulation of World Assembly Law, disseminates World Assembly law to the inhabitants of all member states, and merely requires that member states make publications of World Assembly law publically available, and not stymie the tasks of the World Assembly Law Dissemination Service. Unsurprisingly, a state with no love for individual freedom or respect for international law violates this resolution so that its inhabitants cannot fully learn the extent of their oppression, and so that their legal rights are not known to them.

  • GAR #443, Preventing the Execution of Innocents, prohibits the exercise of capital punishment in all circumstances. The Wallenburgian republics have long criticized this encroachment, and yet they comply fully with its mandates. Since the passage of GAR #443, not a single individual has been executed by the state within Wallenburgian jurisdiction. Youssathian noncompliance represents an insult to all member states upholding their promise to the World Assembly.

  • GAR #457, Defending the Rights of Sexual and Gender Minorities, while a flawed resolution, generally guarantees equal rights to individuals often oppressed on the basis of their sexual orientation. Youssathian noncompliance finds its basis in a backwards opposition to gay marriage and various other free activities by homosexuals that are simultaneously considered entirely normal or acceptable by heterosexuals.

  • GAR #467, Affordable Transgender Hormone Therapy, sets dangerous medical mandates, requiring member states to allow permanent, dangerous hormone therapies on demand. Even in its opposition, however, Wallenburg complies with these mandates out of honor, integrity, and the desire to remain respected by its fellow member states. Youssath does not do this because it has no honor, nor integrity, and because it expects member states to show it respect even if it shows them none.

The evidence against the Republic of Youssath is unshakeable: it is a rogue state, in violation of so many resolutions that calling it a member state would not accurately reflect its circumstances. It keeps a delegation in the World Assembly and votes on our resolutions, and demands to be treated as an equal to members, and yet wishes to exist outside of the World Assembly. Based on the abominable results of such a contradictory position, this Office is inclined to grant the Republic of Youssath neither. This Office holds it to the responsibilities a member state has to the World Assembly, and denies it the rights it would enjoy as a member in good standing.

II - Address to the Youssathian Foreign Ministry

This office has found that the Youssathian ambassador to the World Assembly is of such poor character, and Deputy Representative Artur Holt is of such respectable character, that neither the ambassador nor the Youssathian Foreign Ministry merit an apology for any comments made in the voting period. Following the conclusion that all statements entered into the record as those of Deputy Holt are accurate and respectful, this Office will not retract any of them. For the purpose of clarity, this Office explains that this decision is not reached flippantly nor enthusiastically.

Citing the stated Youssathian Foreign Ministry standard "expecting all SC ambassadors and representatives alike to be in their best conduct representing their nation," this Office charges the Youssathian ambassador with failing to meet their Ministry's own minimum expectations. The Youssathian ambassador has verbally attacked and mocked representatives from member states. The Youssathian ambassador has insulted and belittled World Assembly staff and the World Assembly itself. The Youssathian ambassador has insulted member states for complying with international law as the actions of their government doubly insult compliant states through Youssathian violation of those laws. In response to this behavior, this Office and, by extension, the Sister Republics of Wallenburg, expect a formal apology by the Youssathian ambassador for their statements in the voting period, and expect a full retraction of these statements by the Youssathian Foreign Ministry.

This Office further recommends that the Youssathian Foreign Ministry seriously reconsider the individuals it chooses to represent its government abroad, especially to a body as dedicated to civil rights and liberties as the World Assembly. While member states doubtless will show the Republic of Youssath little leeway regardless of its representation, given its broad noncompliance, more adept and astute diplomacy would serve its World Assembly delegation well.

III - Address to the Prime Minister of the Republic of Youssath

The policies the Youssathian government engages in horrify any member state dedicated to the same principles as those of the World Assembly, and clearly violate its mandates. It is only by the apparent ambivalence of your international neigbors to these horrors, and the systematic oppression of its citizens internally, that the Republic of Youssath maintains its current government. Truly, the policies of the Republic of Youssath clearly stand opposed to international cooperation, political freedom, and civil rights and liberties. While nations not dissimilar to Youssath retain membership in the World Assembly, they more often attempt to argue compliance with World Assembly law, limiting their failures to comply to improper interpretations of specific obligations rather than loud and outright noncompliance. Of course, for any member state to believe such claims, noncompliant states simply cannot match the degree of illegal activity that Youssath engages in. Only through serious reforms can Youssath be imagined as a marginally compliant state, and only through total foundational changes can Youssath mend its standing with the World Assembly.

The Republic of Youssath ruins its international reputation by simultaneously asserting treaty rights and refusing to honor the terms of World Assembly resolutions and, by extension, its agreement with the World Assembly as made in the entry process. We expect that as the head of government, the office we address understands the full consequences of this, especially given this Office's prior exploration of Youssathian noncompliance, World Assembly compliance measures, and the behavior of self-interested nation-states. This Office recommends a radical departure from the Youssathian policy of noncompliance and oppression, and a serious consideration of the need to transition to full compliance or to resign from the World Assembly. The Youssathian government cannot maintain its current policies and still pretend to honor its commitments or to hold any meaningful status in the World Assembly.

IV - Demands from the Republic of Youssath

Of the several responsibilities of this Office, the promotion of compliance with World Assembly law takes priority over most others. Advising the Sister Republics of Wallenburg on effective and acceptable legislation to bring them into compliance requires many resources from this Office, especially when there exists a great practical obstacle to compliance or strong opposition to the principles of a World Assembly resolution. In truth, it would perhaps be easier for this Office not to facilitate compliance, and rather to encourage noncompliance where national opinions and tastes so incline the government. Certainly such a practice would prove popular among the electorate. However, the Sister Republics of Wallenburg, as respected nation-states, honor their international obligations, and observe the dangers in violating their promises to other nations whenever it suits their immediate national politics.

These dangers are no less true for the Republic of Youssath. By celebrating its noncompliance, Youssath permanently and ever-increasingly damages its international reputation, and antagonizes member states. Certainly, as a regime dedicated to the marginalization of various groups and the elimination of civil rights and liberties, Youssath would find its diplomatic options narrowed regardless, but enthusiastic violation of its international agreements only compounds this problem. This Office therefore recommends that Youssath choose either to resign its delegation to the World Assembly and thereby dissolve its ties with this international organization, or commit itself to a program of good-faith compliance.

Should the Republic of Youssath choose to remain in the World Assembly, the Sister Republics of Wallenburg are prepared to dedicate resources and personnel to bring Youssath into compliance with several resolutions and to begin the transition to compliance with others. In offering this agreement, this Office cites the recent history of the republican militaries bringing the Holy Republic of Wallenburg into compliance with the body of World Assembly law. This success came in spite of significant resistance from the populace and even the treaty government of West Wallenburg. A similar program could be developed with the Republic of Youssath, with the consent and assistance of its government.

Regarding the enormous fines levied against the Republic of Youssath, this Office is confident that many member states dedicated to the promotion of compliance, including the Sister Republics of Wallenburg, would be open to establishing borrowing agreements and coordinating payment plans to the World Assembly, such that in the long term Youssath can substantially reduce its debt to the World Assembly without causing a national economic crisis.

If the Republic of Youssath refuses to either resign or commit to good-faith compliance, the Sister Republics of Wallenburg will continue its sanctions against Youssath, and shall take into police custody any Youssathians suspected of violating World Assembly law, for prosecution before the courts of the World Assembly Judiciary Committee, within the limitations of World Assembly law. The Sister Republics of Wallenburg shall also boycott any businesses operating in Youssath or doing business with the Republic of Youssath.

The Sister Republics of Wallenburg hope for the Republic of Youssath to choose diplomacy and integrity by compliance with World Assembly law, but will not show Youssath undue respect or privileges should it refuse to improve its international image or honor its international agreements. This Office trusts that, despite poor representation in the voting period, the Republic of Youssath posesses among its officials the skills and diplomatic expertise required to rationally resolve its unsustainable international status.
