Don't Pick Palpatine
Declaration of Standing for President of the General Assembly

Dear all,

If you have watched the Star Wars prequel series, you will have noticed a quirk in an otherwise good-looking democracy: the Galactic Senate is presided by the Supreme Chancellor. The Republic may have survived for a thousand years, but this provision was already planting the seed for its inevitable collapse (there, I spoiled the trilogy for you). When the Galaxy's chief executive was overseeing the process of Parliament, the hope for the legislative branch to be a counterpower to Palpatine's growing influence was permanently extinguished.

We saw what a Parliament led by the wrong person can do (or rather, fail to do). Led by the right person, and for the right people, a Parliament is a temple of democracy, a direct tool for effecting change at levels that neither the SecGen, the Court, or even the Founder could dream of. Together, the General Assembly is no doubt the institution that wields the most Constitutional Power. That power is divided into as many shares as there are citizens willing to engage, such that the General Assembly is the most accessible institution of our democracy. You do not need to sign up, or be interviewed or elected; you only need two things.
1) An Opinion
2) The courage to speak it

When it is functional, the Assembly is the most potent social elevator there is. About a year ago I had just arrived in the Indies, a newcomer like everyone of us has been. It took me only eight months, and no secretarial level appointment, to go from newcomer to Secretary-General. This would have been impossible without the GA. The Assembly is a place where all citizens are given a chance to shine, where they can show their interests and commitment, and make a name for themselves without any barrier.

But even for those who are not interested in the rest of the Indies' Government, the Assembly remains a point of convergence for every citizen, without regards for how long or short they have been here, whether they are a Secretary or a Roleplayer, hang out on Discord or construct factbooks. When you walk in the chamber, everyone is a citizen, and only the quality of their ideas and the poignancy of their arguments can sway the balance.

The General Assembly is the Assembly of the Citizens of this Region. This is why it is so accessible, and why the Constitution affords it power beyond all other offices, including the possibility to impeach other officeholders, pass laws, veto Decrees, and oversee the other branches of Government. But the Assembly does not run itself: it needs a President.

The President of the General Assembly reviews and approves bills, holds polls, updates the registry of our laws, moderates debates, and can create and disband committees. But beyond this, they are an incarnation of the Assembly. Pick an active President, and the Assembly will strive. Pick a compassionate and empathetic President, and it will continue being a core of our democracy. Pick a President who will stand up for their rights, and the Assembly will resist being trampled upon. Find in your President the qualities you want your Assembly to have.

A ticket for the Presidential election has two names. That of the Presidential candidate, and that of a President Pro Tempore. Any citizen may run with any number of Presidential candidates as President Pro Tempore. The President Pro Tempore replaces the President when they are absent, and may assist the President in their duties.

The Office of the President of the General Assembly is hereby open for standing! To stand, contact NWIgov or Celestiam by telegram. You may also DM Celestiam at #Seafarer5810. Please tell them the name of your Presidential and Pro Tempore candidates. You may stand and campaign until the 24th of September, which is when the polls will open.

Best of luck to all!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

To plant an Acorn
Announcing Embassies and Nuclear Collaboration with Forest

Dear readers, may you be New West Indian, Forester, or simply curious,

It is a great pleasure and honour to announce that, following a landslide poll in Forest and acceptance by the Department of Foreign Affairs, an embassy will be opened between Forest and the New West Indies. The Embassy will hopefully mark the beginning of a close partnership between our two regions.

Forest is the kind of region about which one can only offer praise. They are a large but tight-knit and compassionate community; they uphold principles of democracy and equality between nations. Most of all, they have had previous contacts with Evergreen Conifer, and have shown particular interest in the well being of the Coniferan community here. This is a region that has shown that it cares for those it calls its friends, even when they are outside their borders.

This would have never been possible without the hard work of Turbeaux/Green Bowers, known here as Forest Breeze, who has been particularly supportive of the embassy, and was of invaluable help in furthering the NWI's candidacy. It fills me with joy that they accepted to represent Forest here, and it is without hesitation that I receive their credentials to be the Ambassador of Forest to the New West Indies.

In the New West Indies, the Honourable Secretary of Foreign Affairs Funky Goats deserves to be called an architect of this partnership, having dialogued with Forester representatives and shown leadership in the Coniferan Remnant community by collecting the thoughts of fellow Coniferans on the embassy with Forest. Make sure to gift a shrub to our favourite goat next time you stumble upon them in the lush meadows of the Indies!

To serve as our Ambassador to Forest, it made the most sense to appoint a former Coniferan with knowledge and understanding of Evergreen Conifer's positions, and someone who understands the value of Culture in a partnership. Central Ninjago City, a Co-Founder of Evergreen Conifer and a former Minister of Culture there, stands as an obvious choice. On the advice of Secretary Funky Goats, I am proud to accredit Central Ninjago City (also known as Craei Theau) as the Ambassador of the New West Indies to Forest.

I will also take this occasion to congratulate Ruinenlust for ascending to Forest's delegacy. It is a secret to nobody that Ransium left a particularly large pair of shoes to fill. Ruinenlust is, by all measures, one of the most capable individuals to fill it, and their long time commitment to Forest, coupled with their diplomatic skill and experience, makes them likely to be a great successor to Ransium. On the behalf of the entirety of the New West Indies, the Office of the Secretary-General wishes Ruinenlust and Forest a prosperous and constructive time at the Delegacy.

Citizens of our two regions will very soon be able to see the benefits of this friendship. Mount Seymour/Somyrion was generous enough to invite the New West Indies to join The Potato Alliance at the next N-Day5 event. N-Day is a Nationstates event that involves a nuclear war, where regions can team up and either protect each other, bomb each other to oblivion, and often both. To better understand what this impending Nuclear war is, check out these two dispatches:

page=dispatch/id=874170

page=dispatch/id=1422773

The Potato Alliance is a super-faction with many different nations from different friendly regions, from our friends in Forest to Spiritus to the North and South Pacifics. All are friends, and all are determined to make it to the first row of NS' ranking. While you will all get more information very soon, reading the above dispatch will already give you an idea of what will be happening in late September.

With that, I hope you will join me in congratulating the new ambassadors and celebrating the establishment of Embassies with this cultural and environmental powerhouse, but also a adorable patch of green in the multiverse that is Forest!

Welcome to the New West Indies!

What is this place?

Our community is a dedicated group of roleplayers, government workers, lawmakers, comedy junkies, flag-makers, designers, and many more!

Founded on March 7th, 2018 by Achipel, the New West Indies (NWI) initially created a modern roleplay canon that has continued ever since. Nations began solely in the Caribbean area of the map, but as the community grew (and grow quickly it did), the roleplay became more complex with it, becoming more Post-Modern and spawning a variety of new adventures.

Vexillology (flag-making) is at the heart of the region. Experienced creators like Cymiopolis, New United Carolinas, and Portinabia (among others) frequently show off their skills.

Government and lawmaking have recently begun to take hold, as many experienced members debate potential reforms and changes to regional institutions and affairs.

Members often discuss politics, memes, games, and other topics on our Regional Message Board (RMB) and especially Discord. Anyone who follows the rules and wants to have a good time in their area of interest is welcome here!


What should I do first?

Apply for Citizenship!


You should start your New West Indies experience by completing the Citizenship Application, which will allow you to experience roleplay, lawmaking, and other engaging activities! Once you fill it out completely, relevant authorities will inform you if it is approved.

Make sure to answer every question! To decide what RP claim you want (if desired), go to the Regional Map – make certain that what you want isn't already taken (is any color besides grey). If you are having trouble with the app, contact a regional officer.

Explore our Community!


Our Linkdiscord server is the best place to start – you can begin mingling with the citizenry and ask questions if you're confused. You can also introduce yourself on the RMB as well.

Our Constitution outlines our laws and values – every citizen should read it and be familiar with the rules of the Indies road.

Speaking of the RMB, getting your feet wet in roleplay is quite important if you want to participate. Whether you're a newer player or experienced roleplayer, it's beneficial to get your first post out there and introduce yourself in- and out-of-character.

Finally, you should consider accessing the following resources for knowledge and further assistance:

Regional Master Dispatch

| Where you can find links to every regional resource, including many described in this document

Glossary of Terms

| Are you confused by NationStates lingo or our region's terminology? This ought to help


How do I get involved?

Roleplay!


Roleplay (RP) is the main attraction for new and old members alike. Start by creating your nation's basic lore; where is it on the map? What are its socioeconomic challenges? What are its politics like? These questions and others will guide you through creating an overview dispatch (such as this one) if you are so inclined. Otherwise, begin diplomatically engaging and describing the issues your nation faces on the RMB, so everyone can start getting familiar.

Once you are settled into the canon, branch out! Create some personable characters, discuss IC legislation in the Union of Nations, make an alliance, or create your own business! If you are so inclined, and become familiar with our guidelines, you could even make your own roleplay for the region! The possibilities are truly at your leisure (barring something extraneous).

See below for further assistance.

Guide to NWI Roleplay

| To start getting acquainted with how RP functions in our region, see here

Current RP Canon

| Introduction to the story so far

Roleplay Information

| Where all regional roleplay resources are housed in one place

Participate in the General Assembly!


Once you become a citizen, you are automatically a member of the NWI General Assembly (GA), our regional lawmaking body. As such, you have the opportunity to not only vote on and discuss legislation, but you can also propose your own! We have many experienced members that can assist in the process, especially for newer members. The best way to begin learning about the GA and discuss law is to join our Linkdiscord and go to the GA channel.

Constitution

| Supreme NWI Law

Passed Resolutions

| A repository of all passed GA legislation

Resolution Templates

| How to design and code resolutions

Contribute to the Regional Government!


Our Executive Branch is made of the Secretary-General, the head of government, who every six months (once elected) appoints a cabinet of four Secretaries that make up the "Secretariat." These nations execute GA law, protect the region, and moderate certain regional affairs.

Once you become more familiar with our region, any citizen can run for office, whether that be the Secretary-General or General Assembly President! Additionally, you can be appointed to a Secretarial position or a lower role within one of the Executive departments.

Even if you do not want to work in government, it is your prerogative as a citizen to vote in elections, which increases representation and makes government work better for the people as a result.

Join the World Assembly!


Joining the world assembly not only provides many benefits to you, but also helps the region in numerous ways.

Once you've joined the world assembly, you should endorse the current delegate (Karteria), which allows the delegate to have more sway in World Assembly voting and further secures the region. You can also discuss current WA topics and legislation with other members of the NWI in our WA channel on Linkdiscord.

See "2.4 What is the World Assembly?" near the bottom of this document for instructions on how to attain WA membership.


What are issues?

Issues are the key to any initial NationStates experience. To access them, click the button in the top left corner of your page that says "issues." From there, you can answer the critical questions for your nation however you please.

Depending on how you answer issues, they will affect your nation's "stats" and potentially enact "policies." See the toolbar on your nation's page (underneath your motto) for more information about each effect.

Issues have no major bearing on regional roleplay, but they can give you ideas for how to formulate your nation in-character. Just answered an issue enacting euthanasia, or banning nuclear power? Why not do it in RP too!

If you don't want to answer issues, or you want to answer them more/less frequently, you can adjust the duration between each one in your nation's settings.


What is a dispatch?

Dispatches are canvases for nations to express anything they wish in a public setting. You can write, roleplay, campaign, design art, or anything in between – all through a simple dispatch.

Guide to creating a dispatch

OR

1. Go to your nation's page by clicking on your nation's name in the top-left corner

4. Select the "category" for your dispatch (each one is described in the preceding paragraph above the text window)

5. Select sub-category

6. Choose a title

7. Begin writing!

1If you don't have any dispatches, the icon won't appear, and you will have to click on the "factbook" icon second from the right
2If note 1 applies, click on the factbook icon and click "+ Add New Factbook"


What are telegrams?

Telegrams are the method by which nations directly message one another privately. Mass telegrams, sent to every nation in the NWI, are frequently used by regional officials to keep everyone updated.

Guide to blocking recruitment telegrams


1. Click "telegrams" in the top-left corner of any page

2. Click "preferences" in the top-left corner of the telegrams page

3. Scroll down to the table that shows multiple telegram types

4. In the first row labeled "recruitment," select "Block All"

5. Done!


What is the World Assembly?

The World Assembly (WA) is an international organization with thousands of member-nations, which focuses on legislating the NationStates metaverse.
See the WA FAQs to get a succinct overview of the WA.

Remember – you can only have one WA nation at any one time.

Guide to joining the World Assembly:


1. Scroll to the top of any page and click "World Assembly" on the left

2. At the top of that page, select "Apply to Join"

3. After a few minutes, go to your email and select the WA email1

— Preamble —

We, the member nations of the New West Indies, inspired by the determination to promote world peace; to strengthen liberty, democracy, independence and peace amongst its nations in a spirit of solidarity and brotherhood, to promote mutual consideration and respect; in the knowledge that only those who use their freedom remain free and that the strength of a community is measured by the well-being of its weakest members; hereby adopt the following Constitution:

— Chapter I: Fundamental Provisions —

§01 - Admission

Every nation is admitted to enter and reside within the New West Indies.

No nation shall be prohibited from entering the region due to their ideology, ideals or political views. A nation can only be prohibited from entering and residing within the region or be expelled without reason by the competent authorities if such nation presents a threat to regional security or stability.

Puppet nations are admitted to enter the region; however, they may neither participate in polls nor hold any executive office in the regional government.

§02 - Citizenship
(as amended on March 24, 2020)

Any nation within the New West Indies may attain citizenship if the following criteria are met:

  1. The nation is not a puppet of another nation already residing within the New West Indies

  2. If applying during or in the four days prior to an election, the nation is not issued citizenship until the election has concluded

Any nation shall lose its citizenship (and must reapply to reacquire such status) if it meets the following criteria:

  1. The nation no longer resides in the New West Indies due to either emigration or ceasing of existence

  2. The nation has committed a crime and is sentenced to a loss of citizenship by relevant authorities or is summarily banned from the region by the Secretariat or the Founder under §1 and/or §3 of this Constitution.

§03 - International Stance

The New West Indies is a neutral region. It may not partake in "raiding" operations and may not initiate offensive actions against other regions. Should foreign aggressions be carried out against the New West Indies, regional officers may take appropriate measures to defend the region and its members against them.

§04 - Government Structure

The executive power is exercised by the Secretariat and the Secretary-General.

The legislative power is exercised by the General Assembly.

— Chapter II: Electoral and Participatory Rights —

§05 - The Right to Vote

A citizen of the New West Indies is allowed to cast their votes in regional elections and General Assembly resolutions. Provisions set out in this constitution shall govern the eligibility of a nation to run for office in the regional government.

The President of the General Assembly shall verify the validity of votes cast for Secretariat elections. Other regional elections shall have their votes verified by the Secretariat. Any vote cast by non-citizens or puppets must be invalidated and shall not influence the outcome of a poll.

A nation may have their right to vote in elections, run in elections, hold Government Office, or participate in the General Assembly revoked, either temporarily or permanently, as a sentence for crimes committed by that nation.

§07 - World Assembly Affairs
(as amended on March 1, 2020)

The World Assembly Delegate represents the New West Indies in the NationStates World Assembly.

The role is purely representative and does not endow the Delegate with any administrative or executive authority within the region.

The Delegate must vote on WA General Assembly resolutions according to the opinion of the region's WA members. The Delegate may vote on Security Council resolutions at their discretion.

Any member of the World Assembly may allocate endorsements to another WA member nations at their own discretion. Any nation may request other nations to endorse them, as long as they do not force other nations into doing so.

A nation may have the rights defined in this Section revoked, either temporarily or permanently, as the sentence for crimes committed by that nation.

§08 - Freedom of Expression
(as amended on March 1, 2020)

The right to freedom of expression is guaranteed. Freedom of expression entails the right to express, distribute, and receive information and opinions without prior prevention by anyone and to every nation's own conscience. However, players are not allowed to post anything that is either:

  1. obscene or illegal;

  2. instigative or encourages sedition or rebellion;

  3. malicious or defamatory towards another nation within or outside the New West Indies

  4. malicious or defamatory towards anyone because of their religion, ethnicity, race, national origin, sexual orientation, or gender identity;

  5. threatening towards regional security;

  6. containing (sensitive) personal information about individual players;

  7. or that violates the NationStates terms of service.

This right to freedom of expression shall be disregarded if a resident or citizen has been convicted of a crime and is sentenced to an applicable restriction of their expression.

This right to freedom of expression does not replace or undermine the general terms of service laid down by the moderators and administrators of the NationStates website.

§09 - Freedom of Opinion and Ideology
(as amended on March 1, 2020)

The right to freedom of opinion is guaranteed. Every nation may choose their own ideology, flag, motto, classification, currency, national animal, leader, faith and banners. Neither the regional government nor the High Court may deprive any nation of this freedom, except if it would violate the criteria set forth in §8 para. 1, or if they suspect the relevant nation to violate the general terms of service of NationStates.

This right to freedom of opinion granted to the members of the New West Indies by this constitution does not replace or undermine the general terms of service laid down by the moderators and administrators of the NationStates website.

— Chapter III: The General Assembly —

§10 - Status

The General Assembly is the legislative body of the New West Indies.

It is in charge of electing the Secretary-General, enacting new policies by adopting resolutions, including Motions of No Confidence to remove from office members of the Secretariat, the President, or any deputy thereof, or members of any other constitutionally-created branch of government.

§11 - Composition

Every citizen in the New West Indies will automatically hold a seat in the New West Indies General Assembly and may propose and vote on resolutions.

§12 - Presidency
(as amended on March 1, 2020)

The General Assembly shall elect from among its members a President. The election for President of the General Assembly will be held on the 25th of every third month for a voting period of forty-eight (48) hours. After an election, the elected nation will assume office for a term beginning on the 1st of the following month and ending on the last day of the second month thereafter.

The following nations are not eligible to serve as President of the General Assembly:

  1. the Secretary-General;

  2. any Cabinet member;

  3. any member of the High Court; and

  4. any other nation that is controlled by the player who also controls either the Secretary-General, any Cabinet member, or any member of the High Court.

The President of the General Assembly is responsible for setting up voting polls, disseminating information about said voting, and pinning relevant dispatches about resolutions under discussion in the General Assembly. The President is responsible for supervising the validity of all votes cast on a General Assembly resolution and must disregard any vote cast by puppets or non-citizens in the final outcome.

The President shall approve proposed General Assembly resolutions for voting. Such approval may occur if a resolution does not contradict the constitution, the general terms of service, or standard formatting (as determined by the President). The President may consider other factors for approval excluding a resolution's content or efficacy.

The President is granted Appearance and Polls authority but is not considered part of the executive branch of the Government. The President may not be re-elected for a third consecutive term.

§12.5- President pro Tempore

The President pro Tempore, upon declaration of the President or after five days of inactivity by the President, shall assume all Powers and Responsibilities of the Office of the President, and shall be subject to all laws and regulations regarding the President except where expressly excepted until the President declares the immediate resumption of their powers and responsibilities.

The first President Pro Tempore shall be appointed by the sitting President. All subsequent President pro Tempore shall be elected on a joint ticket with a Presidential candidate during the Presidential elections. The term of the President pro Tempore shall expire with the President’s term, however, it shall not be subject to any term limit. Nations ineligible to be President shall likewise be ineligible to be President Pro Tempore.

Should either the President or the President pro Tempore be impeached, then a Special Election shall be called to replace only the impeached official. Should the President lose office by any other means, the President pro Tempore will succeed to the Presidency for the remainder of the term. The shortened term shall not count toward any term limits. Should the President pro Tempore lose office by any means other than impeachment (including succession to the Presidency), then the President shall appoint a replacement to serve the remainder of the original term.

§13 - Proceedings

The General Assembly adopts new or repeals existing resolutions for the New West Indies. All resolutions and amendments to such resolutions are adopted by a simple majority vote.

The minimum voting period for any resolution or amendment is twenty-four (24) hours. The President of the General Assembly may decide to prolong the voting period for a resolution or amendment if the President deems it necessary, or upon request of the petitioner.

Any resolution or amendment must be written down in a dispatch and pinned on the regional World Factbook Entry of the New West Indies for as long as the relevant voting is underway.

§13.5 - Motions of No Confidence
(as amended on March 1, 2020)

Any member of the General Assembly may present a Motion of No Confidence. If a no-confidence motion has enough co-sponsors that constitute at least 10% of the New West Indies voting populace, the motion shall be brought to a vote within seven (7) days after reaching the required amount of co-sponsors.

In the case that the motion does not reach the 10% co-sponsor threshold within seven days of proposal, and the motion is not against the President, the motion shall be brought before the President of the General Assembly, who shall approve or disapprove of the motion within three days. If approved by the President, the motion shall then promptly be brought before the General Assembly for a vote.

In the case that the motion does not reach the 10% co-sponsor threshold within seven days of proposal, and the motion is against the President, the motion shall be brought before the Secretariat and a special vote between the Cabinet members shall be called within three (3) days whereupon a simple majority, within a voting period of forty-eight (48) hours, the motion shall then promptly be brought before the General Assembly for a full vote.

All motions of No Confidence that are validly brought to vote before the General Assembly require a simple majority within a voting period of forty-eight (48) hours to pass, and upon passage, the targeted officeholder is considered impeached and must be dismissed by the founder immediately.

If the targeted officeholder was an elected official, and there are more than fourteen days remaining in their term, the Founder shall promptly call a Special Election to fill the duration of the term. The shortened term will not count against any term limit. The impeached official may not run in the Special Election. At least five days shall be allotted for campaigning, and the election itself shall last seventy-two hours. Regular elections shall not take precedence.

— Chapter IV: The Secretary-General and the Secretariat —

§14 - Status

The Secretariat forms the Executive Branch of the government of the New West Indies.

It is chaired by the Secretary-General, who is considered the head of government of the New West Indies.

It is in charge of enforcing New West Indies law and carrying out administrative matters.

§15 - Eligibility to Serve as Secretary-General

Any nation fulfilling the following criteria may serve as Secretary-General of the New West Indies:

  • It holds full membership status of the General Assembly.

  • It is not controlled by the same player who controls the Founder, the President of the General Assembly, member of the Cabinet, or a member of the High Court.

The Founder is considered Secretary-General until the first Secretary-General has been elected according to the procedures laid down in §16.

§16 - Election and Term of the Secretary-General

All nations with full membership of the General Assembly elect the Secretary-General for a term of six months.

Elections for Secretary-General shall be held no later than fourteen (14) days before the running term ends. During a nomination period of at least ten (10) days and a following voting period of seventy-two (72) hours, the next Secretary-General shall be elected by the members of the General Assembly. The candidate with the most valid votes cast at the end of the voting period is considered the next Secretary-General of the New West Indies and will take office as soon as the term of the incumbent Secretary-General ends.

Each candidate shall present a cabinet list to the Founder and/or President of the General Assembly containing their chosen appointees for the offices of the Secretaries at least thirty-six (36) hours prior to the voting period. Such a list must not be congruent to the party lists presented by other candidates. For the benefit of the doubt, there may be partial overlaps between cabinet lists.

In the event of a tie, the tied candidates will run for Secretary-General in an additional tie-breaker poll. Should three or more candidates participate in the tie-breaker poll, the aforementioned procedure will be repeated until there is one candidate with more votes than the other candidates. That candidate will then assume office as Secretary-General.

§17 - Powers of the Secretary-General

The Secretary-General will be granted all onsite authorities except Executive and WA Delegate authority; however, the Secretary-General may simultaneously hold World Assembly Delegate status.

The Secretary-General must appoint a Cabinet consisting of four nations, called Secretaries. The Secretary-General is obliged to keep each position occupied and must, in case a vacancy arises, nominate a new nation within one week after the relevant position was vacated.

The Secretary-General is responsible for faithfully executing the law of the New West Indies. The Secretary-General may represent the region abroad, command its security, oversee its recruitment, assist its administration, and oversee the day-to-day operations of the Executive Branch.

§18 - The Cabinet

Each of the Secretaries heads one of the administrative departments of the New West Indies. They are appointed by, and serve at the pleasure of, the Secretary-General; however, they may be either dismissed by the Secretary-General or impeached via GA resolution at any given time.

While acting within their respective jurisdiction, each Secretary and the Secretary-General may issue unilateral decrees enacting administrative orders. Any decree may be overturned with a simple majority vote in the General Assembly and is subject to judicial review by the High Court.

The following nations are not eligible to serve as a member of the Cabinet:

  1. the Founder;

  2. the Secretary-General;

  3. the President of the General Assembly;

  4. a member of the High Court; or

  5. any other nation that is controlled by the player who also controls one of the nations listed in (a) through (d).

§19 - Removal

If the Founder determines the entire Secretariat to be irresponsible of their tasks and duties or finds its decisions to be detrimental to regional stability or security, the Founder may order the dissolution of the Cabinet. Within fourteen (14) days after the dissolution, new elections must be held in accordance with §16. The newly elected Secretary-General will then serve for the remainder of the term.

§20 - Term Limits

A nation may not serve as Secretary-General for more than two consecutive terms (twelve months). The number of total, non-consecutive terms is unlimited.

A nation serving as Secretary may serve for an unlimited number of consecutive or non-consecutive terms for as long as it is not impeached and re-appointed.

Any nation serving as Secretary-General or Secretary will lose its respective seat if:

  1. it leaves the New West Indies;

  2. it ceases to exist;

  3. it is impeached via a motion of no-confidence; or

  4. it is impeached in a dissolution issued by the Founder.

— Chapter V: The Founder —

§21 - Status

The nation of Achipel is the Founder and supreme executive authority of the New West Indies.

The Founder's right to use its executive authority is defined and limited by Chapter V of the Constitution.

§22 - Term

The Founder's term is unlimited. It cannot be impeached, removed, or expelled from the region.

§23 - Powers and Restrictions

The nation of Achipel is bound to the Constitution, any General Assembly resolution, and the rule of law of the New West Indies like any other member of the region.

The nation of Achipel is a full member of the General Assembly and may participate in its debates, voting, and elections. It may cast one vote in each voting or election, the weight of which is equal to those cast by other General Assembly members.

The Founder shall wield veto power over the decisions made by the Secretariat.

The Founder may use its executive authority to block any attempt by the Secretary-General, any of the Secretaries, or any member of the High Court to amend or suspend this Constitution by unilateral decree.

The Founder must use its executive authority to ward off any foreign aggression meant to invade, raid, or destabilize the region. The Founder may also issue executive decrees containing the purpose and duration of validity of such to take precautionary measures to avoid previously mentioned circumstances. The Founder also oversees moderation of the region and its platforms

The Founder may use its powers without prior authorization from the competent authorities of the New West Indies in circumstances where the Founder reasonably believes that the security or stability of the New West Indies is under threat. However, in these circumstances, the Founder must provide a written statement to the Secretariat justifying its actions. The Secretariat may order the Founder to reverse any action taken without prior authorization from the Secretary-General or Secretariat and, if so ordered, the Founder must comply with such order.

The Founder may not use its executive powers for any purpose or in any manner that is not contemplated by this Constitution or provided for by any applicable General Assembly resolution.

§24 - Ceasing to Exist

In the event that the founder ceases to exist, all World Assembly nations are required to endorse the current World Assembly delegate. Any nations not already in the World Assembly are encouraged to join and endorse the WAD.

The WAD, while the founder is nonexistent, will assume the role abdicated by the founder. All aforementioned sections of this constitution previously applicable to the founder will then apply to the delegate. As such, the WAD should be treated as the premier executive of the region by all nations within it. Furthermore, the WAD should act in the best interests of the region, as the founder would have, by maintaining the integrity of this constitution, the regional government, and other activities of the region.

The Secretary of Defense and Information should further coordinate with other regional officers, especially the Secretary of State for Internal Affairs, to closely monitor all nations entering the region and their activities. The regional officers and WAD may eject/ban nations from the region under the same constraints previously given to the founder in §23 of this constitution.

The WAD or another regional officer should remind all nations of this process when applicable and encourage them to report any suspicious activity to a regional officer.

If the founder becomes active again and returns to the region, then §24 of this constitution is no longer in effect, and the region resumes normal activities.

§27 - Compositition

The High Court shall be composed of a Chief Justice, who shall solely preside over and rule in all Civil, Criminal, and State cases. It shall also include any administrative staff.

The High Court is organized into the following divisions:

  1. Criminal Court, in which nations charged by the Region are tried for violations of criminal statutes, for the purposes of enforcing law and upholding justice.

  2. Civil Court, in which nations charged by other nations are tried for violations of civil statutes, for the purposes of remedying an accuser’s damages.

  3. State Court, in which the Region, charged by other nations, is tried for acting illegally or unconstitutionally, for the purposes of rectifying such violations.

§28 - Chief Justice
(as amended on March 1, 2020)

The Chief Justice shall be elected by the General Assembly from among its members for a term of six months, to begin on either the first day of May or the first day of November. The Election shall last three days, and shall begin fourteen days before the conclusion of the current term. A nomination period of ten days shall precede the Election. A Chief Justice may not serve a third consecutive term.

Should a sitting Chief Justice cease to exist, resign, or be impeached via a Motion of No Confidence of the General Assembly, the General Assembly will promptly conduct a special election to fill the remainder of the term. The shortened term will not count against any term limit. An initial special election shall be called within ten days of the adoption of this Section to fill the position until the start of the next term.

In the event there is an ongoing case at the end of a Chief Justice’s term, they shall continue to preside over the case until it concludes.

The Chief Justice shall place a puppet in the High Court dependency region, which shall be granted Border Control and Communications authority.

— Chapter VII: Revision of the Constitution—

§32 - Origin of Constitutional Amendments

Any proposal meant to amend the present Constitution must originate in and be voted on by the General Assembly. The Constitution may not be amended via unilateral decree by the Founder, the Secretary-General, any of the Secretaries, or the High Court.

A proposal to amend the Constitution may be submitted to the President of the General Assembly either as an independent bill or as part of another resolution. In the latter case, the resolution must be designated as "Constitutional Amendment" in addition to the original category of that resolution.

§33 - Requirements

Any nation with full membership of the General Assembly of the New West Indies may submit a proposal to amend the Constitution to the President of the General Assembly on the condition that said proposal has at least two sponsors (not including co-authors).

§34 - Voting Procedure

The minimum voting period for any constitutional amendment is seventy-two (72) hours. The President of the General Assembly may decide to prolong the voting period if the President deems it necessary or upon request of the petitioner.

Constitutional amendments require a supermajority, defined as at least two thirds, or 67% of votes cast, in the General Assembly in order to be ratified. If a proposal to amend the constitution only accrues a simple majority, defined as at least 50% of votes cast plus one vote, the proposal is considered defeated and will not be adopted.

§35 - Abolition

The present Constitution may be abolished via General Assembly resolution. However, such a proposal requires at least four sponsors (not including co-authors) and a supermajority of at least two thirds or 67% of all citizens registered at the time voting in favor of such proposal, and the relevant resolution must provide an adequate legal text to substitute this Constitution. The administrative structure of the New West Indies and other fundamental provisions must be governed by a supreme law, such as the present Constitution, at any given time.

Proposals to deprive the nations of the New West Indies of their basic rights are inadmissible. In case the present Constitution is abolished, any following supreme law of the New West Indies must include these basic rights, whether in their current or a similar form, as well as this entrenchment clause.

For submission of a piece of legislation that is currently being drafted:

If you have started a bill but are not finished drafting it. Please either telegram or Discord dm the President of the General Assembly these things:

  1. A link to the draft bill.

  2. The type of the bill. (Resolution, Constitutional Amendment, Repeal, Resolution Repeal, Resolution Amendment, Motion of No Confidence)

  3. Any comments regarding the bill, or requests of me regarding the bill.

Please prepend the text “Draft - ” to any working titles of bills that are being drafted to help to differentiate them from approved bills.

For official submission for legislative approval:

If you have finished drafting a bill and want to officially submit the finished bill for Presidential approval please telegram the President of the GA (currently New Sistonia), and the President Pro Tempore (Ventus Prime) with the subject of “Official Legislative Submission for : *Insert title of bill*” with the body of the telegram including these things:

  3. A quick one to two sentence summary regarding the contents, or objective of the bill.

  4. Any comments regarding the bill, or requests of me to regarding the bill.

Please note that I will strictly enforce Section 12 of the constitution “Such approval may occur if a resolution does not contradict the constitution, the general terms of service, or standard formatting (as determined by the President). The President may consider other factors for approval excluding a resolution's content or efficacy." A bill that is poorly written or not up to the standards of our past resolutions may be rejected for such reasons. Please seek advice from the General Assembly discord channel, the GA region, or me personally for advice on layout and writing of legislation. To be clear, I will not reject a resolution for its content or my personal opinion on its passage. Do not fear submitting a resolutions for fears of judgement though, I do not bite.

In addition after some debate (because there is no legal precedent) within the General Assembly I have decided that the Legislative queue will be strictly FCFS (first come, first serve). That means that a piece of legislation that is approved will be placed at the bottom of the queue and will wait for its allotted debate/voting period. This also means that if you have multiple drafts ready for approval, it would be wise to submit them in the order you want them voted on. Finally, I will only consider diverting from this rule for extremely time-sensitive votes (Motions of No Confidence).


Debate Guidelines:

In accordance with GAR#15 please keep all official debate to the GA Region's forum or respective GA channels in Discord

For requesting a debate extension or reduction:

If you want to request that the President extend or reduce a certain piece of legislation's debate period, please send a telegram to the President of the General Assembly with the following things:

  1. The subject of the telegram must be "Official Debate Extension/Reduction Request for Resolution: *Insert Title of Bill*"

  2. Tell me when you would like the new date and time for the debate to end to be.

  3. Tell me a valid reason for why you are requesting this extension or reduction in debating time.

Please be advised that I reserve the right as President under the authority of GAR#15 IV.A to reject your request, although I will give you a reasonable and valid reason for why I have done so.

For requesting a amendment be made to a resolution in debate:

If you want to request an amendment be made to a resolution in debate, please make a post on the General Assembly Region with a tag to the President of the General Assembly with the following things:

  1. The intro of the post must be "Official Debate Amendment Request for Resolution: *Insert Title of Bill*"

  2. Post the targeted text of the resolution with your amended text in bold in the forum post.

  3. If you're amendment is verbose and would be too lengthy for a forum post, please put it in a dispatch and link the dispatch in the forum post instead.

Please note that if multiple amendments are made during a debating period that conflict with each other, I will more then likely have the authors of the amendments combine their changes into a single amendment to make voting easier.


Communication Guidelines:

  1. Any harassment, hate speech, anything that violates section 8, or just being a jerk in the GA discord or region will be strictly prohibited. I will report nations as it happens and will not be giving warnings for this. The General Assembly is a place for everyone to feel comfortable, not for jerk-bags.

  2. The GA region and discord are strictly for communication regarding the General Assembly and its activities. I will tolerate this slightly, but don’t have full conversations about what you had for dinner in the discord. That’s for the Filibusters bar.

  3. If you have an idea for a piece of legislation, or need help please do not hesitate in posting in the discord or the GA region. The more voices we have, the stronger we get!
