A resolution to modify universal standards of healthcare.

Category: Health

Area of Effect: Healthcare

Proposed by: Umeria

Description: The World Assembly,

UNDERSTANDING that there are many communicable diseases which spread easily if they are not treated hastily;

NOTING that there are times when some communicable diseases cannot be treated hastily;

REALIZING that such diseases should instead be promptly contained to prevent an international epidemic;


1) TASKS the Epidemic and Pandemic Alert and Response Center to define as a "serious disease" any disease which is harmful and contagious enough to create the need of a quarantine in the case of an outbreak of the disease;

2) DEFINES, for the purposes of this resolution:

  1. an "epidemic" as a time, in a nation, when there are enough people with the same serious disease(as defined by the EPARC) to significantly decrease the nation's functioning and/or well-being;

  2. an "infected person" as any person with a serious disease in a nation undergoing an epidemic of that disease;

  3. a "quarantine" as any area where infected persons are kept in isolation in order to halt the spread of the disease;

  4. a "treatment" as any action done to an infected person with the purpose of:

    1. curing the infected person;

    2. rendering the infected person non-contagious;

    3. ensuring the infected person does not undergo any unnecessary harm; and/or

    4. ensuring the infected person is not deprived of any necessities a non-infected person would normally receive;

3) URGES that all member nations, in the event of an epidemic in their nation, screen for any infected persons in that nation not yet known to be infected;

4) REQUIRES that all member nations, to the best of their capability:

  1. create at least one quarantine per epidemic in the nation;

  2. move all infected persons into the appropriate quarantine that is nearest to their current location;

  3. provide every treatment to all infected persons that are in a quarantine while taking any available precaution to ensure that the people administering these treatments are not infected;

  4. move anyone that ceases to be an infected person out of the quarantine;

  5. disband any quarantine that ceases to be of use; and

5) MANDATES that the EPARC cover the costs of the requirements in clause 4 for any member nation that has difficulty maintaining quarantines.

Banning of Shark Finning

A resolution to increase the quality of the world's environment, at the expense of industry.

Category: Environmental

Industry Affected: Fishing

Proposed by: South Aztlan

1. That the definition of "shark finning", is the removal and retention of shark fins, as a part of discarding the remaining carcass in a body of water.
2. That this malpractice is harmful in a myriad of ways; including but not limited to:
I: Loss of diversity in affected marine ecosystem(s).
II: Causing an enormous disruption in the natural order of the food chain in affected marine ecosystem(s).
III: Devastating entire economic sectors that rely on marine ecotourism for their income(s).
IV: Squandering money, time, and resources to commit this malpractice, when these commodities can be used for sustainable and humane fishing practices to feed the population.
V: Many more destructive side effects that can be easily observed in affected marine ecosystem(s).
3. For many species of sharks, not swimming means death, via lack of oxygen.
4. When a shark is finned, it is left immobile, and begins to sink to its death.
1. That the majority of individuals who participate in this disgusting malpractice on average, only utilize 2% (which is the fin), of the weight of a shark.
2. That most all of the shark is wasted, when otherwise could provide a viable source of food for the population.
3. That many species of sharks are left unable to breath, and all sharks to die in a pool of their own blood, in a fairly slow and excruciating process.
4. That this issue was preventable, and arose from ignorance and or carelessness.
5. That this malpractice is only relevant because of the financing and support from individuals who purchase shark fins, for mere novelty, and/or boasting.
1. Individual regions and nations who recognize this malpractice
2. The wonderful work that the World Assembly Endangered Species Committee (WAESC) has undertaken to protect many endangered species.
1. That population control of sharks in certain areas is necessary, but more humane methods must be used.
2. That hunting and fishing certain fauna within moderation is necessary and reasonable.
3. That the shark fin has no nutritional or medicinal value, and therefore serves very little purpose to the population.
1. That The WAESC understands and acknowledges that the malpractice of shark finning is an abhorrent and useless practice that should never be undertaken even with quotas or limits.
2. That The WAESC understands and acknowledges the extreme importance of all species of sharks in all marine ecosystems everywhere.
3. That individuals and regions who recognize this malpractice inform and educate their counterparts of this issue.
4. That individuals and regions take up an anti shark finning agenda, and take extra steps to protect sharks in marine ecosystems in order to achieve a better tomorrow.
5. That The WAESC ban all forms of shark finning for the good of the world.

Approvals: 39 (Ancient Free and Accepted Masons, Tunaasia, Aleisyr, Ransium, Gormin, Jean-Luc Picardia, NewTexas, New Orleans II, Merlinton, Misplaced States, New Kasnea, RunDown, NovaTora, Chronergstin, Ecclestia, Colandane, New Apex, Mark McGowan, Naochan, Kuan Yin, Kaiser Adolf, Belgaam, Jamaker, Nova Roma et agros captos, Pleby, Galiagolach, Lemur Isles, Exaequatio, Finmany, Cavalar, Salvostella, Greytide, Estashio, Franconia Empire, EpsilonAlpha, Hulunbuir, Lothnir, Folzofia, Cute Black Cats)

Repeal "Condemn Lone Wolves United"

A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.

Category: Repeal

Resolution: SC#74

Proposed by: We Are Not The BND

Description: WA Security Council Resolution #74: Condemn Lone Wolves United shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

Argument: The World Assembly,

Contemplating that the name “Lone Wolves United” is an amusing paradox,

Acknowledges that the Lone Wolves United, otherwise known as the LWU, were one of the oldest and most influential raider regions in NationStates, who were condemned in 2011 for raiding several regions,

Reporting that after a recent revolution, led by Alpha Emeritus The Benevolent Fist of Scardino, the LWU has switched sides and declared itself a defender organization,

Delighted to find that the LWU has followed through with their claims by cutting relations with, and compromising the operational security of, over seven major raider organizations,

Noting the critical damage that these actions have dealt to these raider regions, who were blindsided by the LWU’s surprise attack,

Relieved that several major raider operations were thwarted due to LWU’s actions, including:

Thankful that the LWU has selflessly sacrificed it’s long held reputation as an elite raider hunting pack in order to save these poor defenseless regions from the Darkspawn scourge,

Concluding that the LWU feels regret for the actions mentioned in SC #74, and that they are currently attempting to make up for these sins,

Realizing that, in hind sight, raiding Anarchy is not really a Condemnable action, since it is so easy and it happens all the time,

Pointing outthat the region’s founder, The Hostis Humani Generis of Evil Wolf, has previously been commended by this council in SC #169 “Commend Evil Wolf”,

Believing that while they still have a long way to go, the Lone Wolves United have proven themselves to be productive members of society, and a menace to raiders across NationStates,

Deciding that these actions have made up for the LWU’s previous mistakes,

Hereby Repeals SC #74 Condemn Lone Wolves United.

Approvals: 15 (Voxin Cariba, Omiliter Obre Islands, Topid, The rouge Christmas state, Tasmodin, Jean-Luc Picardia, The City-States of Kataria, Jamaker, Pleby, Alozia, Scardino, Universal Socialism, Aleisyr, The Libertarian State of Freedom, Republic of Tacos)
