Liberate Democratia

A resolution to strike down Delegate-imposed barriers to free entry in a region.

Category: Liberation

Nominee (region): Democratia

Proposed by: Jedi-gangsters

Description: The region of Democratia was a sovereign region home to a vibrant community. On September 1, 2009, The Axis of Evil successfully invaded Democratia. The invader Delegate, Smetistan, proceeded to password-protect Democratia, and rid the region of the remaining native population. The destruction of a region like Democratia is a travesty and we must do whatever we can to right this wrong.

With a secret password in place, it is impossible for the natives of Democratia to reclaim their region, dooming the region to a slow death. While there might be hesitation to interfere in the internal affairs of a region, World Assembly intervention is the only course of action left that will allow the rightful inhabitants of Democratia to reclaim their home.

Therefore, the World Assembly hereby lifts the password on the region of Democratia, and forbids said region from being password-protected.
