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.
General Assembly Resolution # 494
A resolution to increase the quality of the world's environment, at the expense of industry.
Industry Affected: All Businesses - Mild
Proposed by: Honeydewistania
The World Assembly,
Observing that desalination is used by several member nations as a method of obtaining fresh water for their people;
Acknowledging that when used in an environmentally-safe manner, desalination is a very effective method for providing potable water to freshwater deficient member nations with access to saltwater;
Aware that improperly managed desalination can lead to irreversible environmental damage, such as release of highly concentrated pollutants into the environment or possible contamination of natural freshwater sources with salt;
Hoping to prevent these negative environmental impacts, while continuing to enable the use of desalination as a way to obtain potable water;
1. Defines, for the purposes of this resolution, "desalination" as the process of obtaining freshwater from saltwater through one or more purification methods;
2. Requires member nations to dispose of any waste products from the desalination process in a manner that does not pose a significant degree of threat to any natural environment;
3. Encourages member nations to research and, when possible, utilize a combination of desalination and salt-recovery for industrial and commercial use;
4. Mandates that desalination plants and their operations must not cause irreversible damages to any ecosystem, and that effective environmental damage mitigation plans are in place to be enacted in the case of an accident;
5. Urges member nations with access to large quantities of saltwater to use desalination as a new source of water, instead of tapping into pristine freshwater reserves;
6. Encourages member nations to adopt energy-efficient strategies for desalination, and if possible, use renewable energy during the process of desalination;
7. Clarifies that nothing in this resolution discourages the use of other methods of alleviating water shortage, such as water use reduction policies.

General Assembly Resolution # 495
A resolution to promote funding and the development of education and the arts.
Category: Education and Creativity
Area of Effect: Educational
Proposed by: Castle Federation
The World Assembly,
UNDERSTANDING the importance of education in all forms and particularly the humanities, and
APPLAUDING all people who work and give their lives to the pursuit of knowledge and education in this unique area of study, and
NOTING the historical heritage, importance, and influence of every field in the humanities on the development, understanding, and revolutionizing of ideas over time, and
RECOGNIZING the importance of the humanities in the development of critical thinking skills, argumentation skills, and perspective taking, hereby enacts the following:
The following subjects are defined as areas of the humanities: History, Visual and Performing Arts, Philosophy, Religious Studies, Language Studies, Linguistics, Archaeology, Cultural Studies, Anthropology, Political Studies, Literature, and any other sociocultural area of study that works towards a better understanding of the cultural condition, and
All educational institutions within member nations must offer at least one area of the humanities as a subject of study per year if a primary or secondary curriculum of education is offered.
The World Humanities Fund (WHF) is established under the management of the WA General Accounting Office. The WHF is an opt in service to which both national governments and non profit organizations which operate within member nations may submit applications. The WHF shall exist to provide funding to constituent nations and non profit organizations within them to accomplish either in part or in full the following objectives:
aid local communities in funding humanities courses for free or at a low fee to allow for greater accessibility outside of formal academic institutions,
develop programs and initiatives that aid workers in finding secure jobs focused on the humanities,
fund government initiatives that seek to further the research and development in various areas of the humanities nationally,
support university degree programs that fall within the definition of the humanities,
strengthen the academic enrichment of courses and create electives at the secondary level of education on subjects within the humanities,
increase the offerings of exposure to the foundations of areas in the humanities at the primary level of education, and
hold nationwide symposiums to put on exposition works and advancements in the various areas of the humanities.
Within the WA General Accounting Office, the Department of External Auditors (DEA) is established with the following tasks:
ensuring that money accepted by nations or organizations from the WHF is used for the above established purpose and
informing the GAO of incorrect use of funding.
If incorrect use of funds is reported, the GAO will cease the allowance of funds to the transgressing nation or organization. The decisions to cease funding by the GAO can be appealed by the nation or organization to the Independent Adjudicative Office.
Security Council Resolution # 313
A resolution to recognize outstanding contribution by a nation or region.
The World Assembly Security Council,
Aware of the various nations in the world that have dedicated the entirety of their international work staying in one region,
Further aware that, of these nations, few make such an impact both domestically and internationally as The Salaxalans,
Admiring The Salaxalans' success in the various elections for Secretary-General of the World Assembly, where they came as a runner-up in the first election and managed to win the seat as Vice Secretary-General in the second election,
Idolizing the noble dedication to the well-rounded and versatile vegetable known as the potato, to which The Salaxalans has found international renown over, showing their love for the food by:
Promising all nations of the world potatoes if they were to win the Secretary-General election, which they promptly did, following their success in the 2020 election,
The collection of a massive amount of artwork commemorating the starchy food, the full assemblage of which is valued at an astronomical price,
A prominent display of spuds in their flag,
Confident that The Salaxalans has thrust their region on the world stage through their tremendous accomplishments in international and interregional diplomacy,
Acclaiming The Salaxalans for their significant strides in regional cultural events in Spiritus that has gone above and beyond what is expected of them, going so far as to start interregional affairs, including but not limited to vast organization of targeting and hunting down members of the mob which prevail in many nations around the world,
Maintaining high rates of regional endorsement to the delegate,
Directing regional responses to international catastrophes,
Creating a consistently positive foreign image for the region,
Logging an extensive history of previous World Factbook Entries for the region,
Preserving the sustained activity in the region and keeping this activity overwhelmingly positive,
Further awed by the codification of the role of Warlord of the Hobo Squids, a highly competitive position that holds substantive power in the Circle of Calamari, and little elsewhere,
Exalting them for their outstanding leadership in the suspiciously common nuclear winters that have occurred throughout the years, leading their own region very close to the top through their Potato Alliance, working both domestically and abroad in the process,
Celebrating the oversight and coordination demonstrated by The Salaxalans in the assorted instances of undead apocalyptic horror which has popped up throughout the years, leading cure efforts in Spiritus which were wildly successful, in some cases leading to the total clearance of the infected within the region and overall making Spiritus one of the most consistently successful regions in terms of survival in these armageddon scenarios.
And believing that these contributions the international community and to the community of Spiritus, spanning a time of over eight years and only increasing in intensity and charm, is the utmost example of what a nation should strive to be,
Hereby commends The Salaxalans.
Security Council Resolution # 314
A resolution to express shock and dismay at a nation or region.
The noble Security Council,
Aware that each day governments will encounter various national issues, and that while these issues may sometimes arise naturally, they are often instead the result of ill-intentioned organisations seeking to undermine peace and national sovereignty,
Cognizant of the fact that Australian rePublic has fabricated such issues on an unimaginable scale, and that the suffering for which it is responsible cannot be by anyone fully comprehended,
Convinced that throughout the universes, Australian rePublic represents a terrible threat to the ideals of peace and goodwill so treasured by this council, and that the fallout of its vicious crimes is inescapable even for the most isolated and unprovocative of governments,
Attempting to communicate to some degree the horrors Australian rePublic has unleashed on thousands of victim nations by describing just a few of the covert missions its government has so maliciously orchestrated:
Mission #552: Must Be A Full Moon, in which Australian rePublic co-ordinated the strategic mooning of government officials in an attempt to incite dangerous national revolutions, inadvertently crashing fashion industries across the universes by causing an inexplicable drop in demand for pants,
Mission #664: Your Land Or Mine, in which veritable flash mobs of undercover agents were sent into unsuspecting nations, inventing entire fake indigenous tribes with sacred sites conveniently located over valuable mining locations and leading to economic collapses and surges in unemployment rates,
Mission #733: The Path Less Traveled, in which ports vital to national economies were frozen over with toxic chemicals in an attempt to invade nations with armies of millions of malicious macaroni penguins, and where only poor mission planning on behalf of Australian rePublic prevented thousands of nations from being totally overrun by the aquatic birds,
Mission #981: Westfailian Sovereignty, in which the leftover penguins from Mission #733 were sent into innocent states disguised as dangerous masked terrorists all under pseudonym Mega Momo, leading to the imperiling of national sovereignty as nations across the universes hopelessly invaded one another seeking to eliminate the terrorist in the international craze now known as Momo Madness, and
Mission #1237: A Polar Bears Tale, in which Australian rePublic fabricated nonsensical legislation concerning such matters as polar bears and fire hoses and slipped these eccentric laws into the government archives of unsuspecting victim nations, leading to allegations of corruption and an unprecedented demand for goggles,
Noting Australian rePublic's long history distributing so-called welcome baskets of fruit to national leaders, with contents polluted by brainwashing chemicals to twist the minds of their recipients and motivate them to organise malicious missions of their own,
Highlighting the fact that the dissemination of these flagitious fruits proved so damaging and costly that, in a rare display of interference in the universes, the mysterious otherworldly deities known to work only in the shadows took physical form to pass their cosmic judgements and, by methods unknown, ended this terrible trade once and for all,
Lamenting the fact that Australian rePublics actions will have impacts lasting into eternity, and that the effects of these terrible missions and abhorrent fruits are irreversible even for such a powerful organisation as this Council,
Adamant that the damage Australian rePublic has dealt the international community must not be ignored or forgotten, as many of us doubtless wish it would be, but instead be grimly remembered, and that we must make an example of this nation to communicate that such reprobate behaviour will not be tolerated by this Council,
Hereby condemns Australian rePublic.
General Assembly Resolution # 496
A resolution to enact uniform standards that protect workers, consumers, and the general public.
Area of Effect: Legal Reform
Proposed by: Cretox State
The World Assembly,
Acknowledging that disputes between firms and individuals often arise over matters of civil rights, employment, and consumer goods;
Noting that joint, class, and collective lawsuits are a crucial avenue through which individuals and small businesses may settle such disputes with larger firms and seek compensation for incidents of wrongdoing;
Understanding that arbitration, when a voluntary decision by two parties in an equal bargaining position, is a valid and often desirable avenue of settling disputes such as those related to international commerce;
Distraught, however, at the widespread use by firms of forced arbitration agreements and agreements that waive the right to sue, which are often a condition of employment or using a product or service, are often poorly-understood by the individual, and often take place in a private forum controlled by said firm;
Recognizing that protecting the ability of individuals to seek relief for violations of their rights protects the public interest and safeguards commerce;
Seeking to end the unjust use of forced arbitration agreements, which undermine the rights of workers and consumers;
Defines for the purposes of this legislation:
"Arbitration" as the deciding of a legal dispute in a private forum outside of a member-nation's judiciary or international court of law, the decision made by which is legally binding and enforceable;
A "forced arbitration agreement" as a legally binding and enforceable agreement mandating the use of arbitration to resolve a dispute that has not yet arisen at the time of the agreement;
A "legal action waiver" as a legally binding and enforceable agreement, whether or not part of a forced arbitration agreement, which prevents at least one party to the agreement from participating in a joint, class, or collective legal action concerning a dispute that has not yet arisen at the time of the agreement, when they would otherwise be able to do so;
Further defines for the purposes of this legislation:
An "antitrust dispute" as any dispute arising from an alleged violation of national, international, or other legislation regulating the conduct and organization of firms with the purpose of promoting or maintaining market competition;
A "civil rights dispute" as any dispute arising from an alleged violation of national, international, or other legislation protecting an individual against arbitrary or discriminatory treatment, in which at least one party alleging such a violation is one or more individuals or their authorized representative;
A "consumer dispute" as any dispute between one or more individuals who seek or acquire real or personal property, services, investments, money, or credit for personal, family, or household purposes; and the seller or provider of such or a third party involved in the selling or providing of such;
An "employment dispute" as any dispute between an employer and one or more individuals or their authorized representative, concerning or related to the current work relationship or a prospective work relationship between them;
No forced arbitration agreement or legal action waiver shall be valid or enforceable with respect to an antitrust, civil rights, consumer, or employment dispute that arises after this law becomes effective;
No clause of this legislation shall be applicable to any agreement between a firm and a labor organization, or between labor organizations, unless such an agreement has the effect of waiving or unduly interfering with the ability of an individual to seek judicial enforcement of their legally-given rights;
No clause of this legislation shall be applicable to any international commercial agreement between two firms, or similar agreement of an international character between two firms, unless such an agreement has the effect of waiving or unduly interfering with the ability of an individual to seek judicial enforcement of their legally-given rights;
Encourages member-nations to protect the ability of individuals to seek judicial enforcement of their legally-given rights;
Clarifies that the applicability of this legislation to an arbitration agreement and the validity and enforceability of an agreement to which this legislation applies shall not be determined through arbitration, irrespective of whether said agreement purports to handle such determinations through arbitration;
Further clarifies that no part of this legislation shall be construed to prevent individuals and firms from voluntarily seeking arbitration of a dispute after said dispute arises.
