World Assembly Resolutions
Since the rise of the World Assembly from the ashes of its predecessor, the Bureaucracy That Cannot Be Named, WA member nations have worked tirelessly to improve the standard of the world. That, or tried to force other nations to be more like them. But that's just semantics.
Below is every World Assembly resolution ever passed.
SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION # 62
Repeal "Condemn Swarmlandia"
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
Proposed by: A mean old man
Description: WA Security Council Resolution #47: Condemn Swarmlandia shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
Argument: The World Assembly,
FURTHER NOTING that, according to the accounts of many senior nations which have had numerous years to observe the happenings of this world and according to a statement made by the nation of Sakaba itself years ago, the nation of "Swarmlandia" is controlled by the exact same administration as the nation of "Sakaba,"
STANDING AGAINST such demonstrations of self-acknowledgement through the abuse of an international organization such as the World Assembly Security Council and finding it likely that the member(s) of the administration of both nations only seek to promote their own interests through passing a condemnation of their own lands,
BELIEVING the acts supposedly committed by Swarmlandia to be atrocious, however noting that it was quite possible that such "tourists" could simply have been forced to enter the nation of Swarmlandia by its sister nation of Sakaba for the purposes of justifying such a condemnation of Swarmlandia,
FURTHER IDENTIFYING absolutely no information whatsoever located in the international forums or found in any other such area that verifies the claims made by Sakaba against Swarmlandia; in essence, no credible records of Swarmlandia's torture of foreigners have ever been found and therefore it cannot be so quickly assumed by such an important body as the World Assembly that such events ever took place,
CONCLUDING that this condemnation is an illegitimate attempt to draw attention to jointly controlled territories while not being backed up by any form of substantial evidence whatsoever,
HEREBY REPEALS the condemnation of Swarmlandia.

GENERAL ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION # 157
Repeal "Safety in Difficult Times"
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
Description: WA General Assembly Resolution #156: Safety in Difficult Times (Category: Social Justice; Strength: Significant) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
Argument: OBSERVING the need to provide safety nets and protection in Difficult Times.
APPLAUDING all countries that are and have been providing welfare to persons located in their jurisdiction.
REALIZING not all countries have the resources to do so; especially in hard economic times.
FRIGHTENED, that this may force nations to raise taxes, which may cripple already struggling economies and force countries to resort to plundering other countries of their wealth.
FURTHER CONCERNED that this resolution has many loopholes that may be abused, and such abuse, and the oversight needed to catch offenders, will cost nations even more money that they may not have.
FIRST AND FOREMOST, The proposal does not specify what is an ''Illness severe enough to prevent the beneficiary from working.'' This generates room for problems. A citizen could easily use this loophole to avoid working.
NOTING, ''Safety in Difficult Times'' specifies that unemployment benefits be given to those involuntarily unemployed. It does allow for those involuntarily unemployed due to being fired for incompetence, among many other reasons one may be fired. This leaves a loophole open for those who are unwilling to work to cause themselves to be fired and receive benefits.
ADDITIONALLY NOTING, bereavement clause is unneeded and will be abused by those not interested in working. For example; A middle aged citizen whose father or mother died could take a whole year's vacation paid by the government. In reality, while the loss of a loved one is a terrible thing, it does not require a person to be out of work for any significant length of time.
FURTHER NOTING, This resolution requires the dispensation of funds when one gives birth to a child or adopts one (See Parental Leave Section 4). For one, there is no specified length of time for the benefits to last. Secondly, there is nothing stating that the new parents must keep the child. Thirdly, there is nothing regarding cases of neglect.
WORRIES about the provisions of section 5b); ''Pensions for survivors who are minors shall last until they have attained a basic education and are able to work''. This is a very lengthy time for anyone to receive benefits. This would basically allow the child's guardian to live off the government dime the entire time since the provision states that benefits must be enough to provide for housing, food, utilities, and schooling costs. There is no reason that a child's guardian could not obtain work in a reasonable amount of time. Single parents of divorce do it every day.
REALIZES this is an attempt at international welfare, which each member nation is capable of seeing to themselves if they are able and willing. Many have them already, which makes this resolution redundant. Not only this, but such a Socialist piece of legislation is an ideology; something which member states are prohibited to force on others, as the rights and duties of World Assembly states declares.
ADDITIONALLY NOTING, due to the cultural and societal differences in all of the countries in the World Assembly, welfare is an issue that must be solved domestically and crafted to the specific needs and wants of the target population and through.
RESOLVES, that the ''Safety in Difficult Times'' resolution is poorly worded, ambiguous, and addresses an issue that should be resolved domestically.
HEREBY REPEALS ''Safety in Difficult Times

SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION # 63
A resolution to recognize outstanding contribution by a nation or region.
Description: THE SECURITY COUNCIL,
ACKNOWLEDGING Ballotonia as an ardent champion of the defender cause,
NOTING that Ballotonia is the mastermind behind the liberation approach called the 'PuppetMaster Attack,' which was first used in The North Pacific in the largest successful liberation to date,
AWARE that Ballotonia presided over the Allied Liberation League, or A.L.L., which was connected to the A.D.N. and at its peak included regions such as The West Pacific, The North Pacific, The Rejected Realms, Nasicournia, Equilism, Nederland, Belgium, Utopia, and North America,
ACKNOWLEDGING Ballotonia's leadership role in the close alliance between the regions of Nederland and Belgium which has helped keep the liberated region of Belgium active and secure under its native delegate of West-Flanders for almost two years to date,
RECOGNIZING the existence of the Ballotonian "office of almost-useless stats," which produced an interesting survey entitled "Flag Use Stats" which recorded statistics such as the most used flag in the world,
APPLAUDING the work of Ballotonian number analysts who conducted a population growth investigation with the goal of determining how quickly nations gain population and uncovered results that surprised many and debunked the old myth about population gain, which was that the population growth would be random as opposed to a systematic increase,
ASTONISHED that despite over 85000 nations currently existing, the same issues keep popping up in all of these nations,
COGNIZANT that Ballotonia has, through extensive research, catalogued these issues and the most common responses to them by nations, given the different issues names and numbers, and also listed the options that nations frequently take when addressing these issues,
RECOGNIZING Ballotonia as the author of the Security Council proposal 'Repeal Commend Sedgistan,' the only Security Council proposal yet to pass in the wake of the coup of The South Pacific by Devonitions, a puppet state of Sedgistan,
HEREBY Commends Ballotonia.
