General 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.

The World Assembly:
AWARE that in countries that allow international corporations, most of the time these corporations act as a force for good, providing employment and economic strength to the communities in which they operate;
FURTHER AWARE that, in order to maximize profits, international corporations may lawfully distribute their corporate subdivisions among many different countries to benefit from a multitude of variations on national subsidies, lower taxes, reduced bureaucratic overload, and so on;
APPALLED that some corporations and other employers can and sometimes do secretly buy life-insurance policies in their employees names, designating the corporations themselves as beneficiaries, thus demonstrating to be more interested in their employees deaths as a source of revenue than in their actual well-being;
DEPLORING such a practice;
DETERMINED to end it once and for all;
