Funnily enough, our friend Adriatican is trying to do the latter. I watched it get shot down really fast though. The game moderators usually take care of that responsibility in the RMB if the region officials don’t, or in the forums.

What would the actual function of this resolution be? The WA Condemn resolutions are already seen as the appropriate tool for signalling displeasure with a nation's community behavior, and those already have issues with being slap-on-the-wrist non-punishments. No WA law can extract sanctions or in any other way meaningfully police the behavior of member states.

So...I just made it illegal to refuse to serve gay customers at restaurants. This caused my nation's social conservatism to increase by 1.2%.

What.

Like...I get that statistical calculations don't always make sense at face value. I get that there's knock-on effects that can be significant and distant. But this is even worse than "lowering taxes caused taxes to increase." If something that explicitly and directly contradicts a particular characteristic can cause that characteristic to increase, how on Earth are we supposed to have any notion of what effects our choices will have???

Perhaps making a few issues would help understand how it would work. Perhaps someone who made a few issues knows how the effects work?

This forum thread might be of some help — you can report unusual issue effects there, and there's a Q&A in the OP that might be able to tell you something. viewtopic.php?f=13&t=424650

I dont completely agree with that outcome either but you can kind of justify it since You (As a state) impose a moral value (Businesses have to serve everyone) on your population (they dont get to decide for themselves anymore)

Why are we against the current WA resolution?
Is it obsolete due to existing ones?

East Lodge wrote:Woah did I die?

That is correct.

I hope everybody's doing well! We've got two new World Assembly resolutions coming through, Rights of the Employed and Commend Crushing Our Enemies.

On Commend Crushing Our Enemies the Crown has voted FOR. COE is a long-term citizen in good standing of The North Pacific, one of our closest allies, and has been a great friend to our region personally over many years. He more than deserves the award.

On Rights of the Employed the Crown has voted AGAINST. While well-intentioned, this attempt leaves a lot to be desired and contains a few puzzling requirements such as the need to have a specific ventilated breastfeeding room, in addition to its inaccurate title.

Thanks for the heads up, I'll vote accordingly.

New Balder Plays NS poll is up! Make sure to read the following dispatch before voting:

Explanation
This nation is not a normal Balderan nation, but rather a nation run by the entirety of Balder. Everyday, an issue will be presented to the region via poll, where all residents can vote on which option they believe would be best. The fate of this nation lies in the hands of Balder. You can find more info here.


🞜 Current Issue 🞜



The Issue
Workers across the nation have gone out on indefinite strike over what they claim are substandard wages in the Woodchip Exports industry.

The Debate
OPTION 1 - “We are the backbone of this country, and we demand a fair wage rise!” says union leader Chuck Jefferson. “I don’t think a 20% increase over two years is too much to ask. Unless the government forces employers to give us our due, we’ll shut this whole industry down! Let’s see how well Balder Plays NS’s economy manages without any Woodchip Exports, huh?”

OPTION 2 - “We pay our employees very generous wages,” says employer representative Ivanka Pushkin. “Especially when you consider that without us, they’d be OUT ON THE STREET. Hear that, you scumbags? OUT ON THE STREET! Anyway, my point is, if you cave in, you make our entire industry uncompetitive. You can’t do that in the global marketplace. It’ll hurt the whole country. The best solution, economically speaking, would be to relax industrial laws and allow us to fire troublemakers on the spot.”

OPTION 3 - Dismiss This Issue
