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.
General Assembly Resolution # 382
A resolution to slash worldwide military spending.
Category: Global Disarmament
Proposed by: West Angola

General Assembly Resolution # 383
A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.
Category: Civil Rights
Proposed by: Bananaistan
The General Assembly,
Recognising the right of individuals to privacy in their sexual relationships,
Resolving to uphold and protect this right from undue interference, while
Affirming that society in general has a legitimate public interest in
- preventing procreation in incestuous unions,
- restricting the exploitation of vulnerable or underage individuals, and
- enforcing fair sexual ethics in professions,
1) Defines individual sexual activity, for the purposes of this resolution, as acts undertaken individually without any external stimulus for the purposes of achieving sexual arousal of the individual,
2) Defines collective sexual activity, for the purposes of this resolution, as acts undertaken with at least one other participating individual for the purposes of achieving sexual arousal of one or more of the participants, where such acts cause no permanent physical harm to any of the participants,
3) Defines age of consent, for the purposes of this resolution, as the age at which an individual is considered to be legally responsible for actively consenting to engage in collective sexual activity,
4) Mandates that member states shall not restrict, regulate, proscribe or criminalise any individual sexual activity where such individual sexual activity is practised in private and away from public exposure, where it does not directly cause physical harm to any other individual,
5) Mandates that, subject to the exceptions listed in clause 6 of this resolution, member states shall not restrict, regulate, proscribe or criminalise any collective sexual activity between consenting individuals who have reached the age of consent where such collective sexual activity is practised in private and away from public exposure, where it does not directly cause physical harm to any non-participant,
6) a) Member states are permitted to establish in law prohibited degrees of consanguinity and may restrict, regulate, proscribe or criminalise sexual activity between individuals falling within a prohibited degree of consanguinity but only to the extent that such sexual activity could result in procreation,
b) Member states are permitted to restrict, regulate, proscribe or criminalise collective sexual activity where one participant has responsibility for or authority over another participant,
c) Member states are permitted to allow the exercise of disciplinary power by organisations on members and employees who engage in sexual activity with individuals for whom they are directly professionally responsible or otherwise directly exercise authority over,
7) Mandates that, for the purposes of clause 5, member states set a biologically appropriate age of consent which gives due regard to the typical age at which the physical and emotional development of individuals in their society provides them with the capabilities of granting genuine, informed consent to participation in sexual activities, and further mandates that there shall be no reference to the gender status or the sexual orientation of the participating individuals nor shall collective sexual activities be subcategorised in age of consent laws,
8) Clarifies that this resolution does not require the legalisation of any materials or artefacts which may be used for the purposes of individual or collective sexual activities, however urges member states to legalise such materials or artefacts where it would not cause harm to non-participating individuals and is otherwise permitted by international law.
General Assembly Resolution # 384
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
General Assembly Resolution #347 “Foreign Patent Recognition” (Category: Free Trade; Strength: Mild) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
Recognizing the utility of patents to many member states;
Encouraging well-reasoned legislation on the issue of patent rights and intellectual property;
Noting that GA #347 provides insufficient framework to prevent private entities and states from filing patents to block technological and scientific development in other nations, even if they have no interest in the technologies they patent;
Regretting that the target resolution allows patent holders to severely restrict use and availability of vital pharmaceutical products, thereby extending the suffering of citizens in many member nations who cannot afford to purchase exclusively patented medicines;
Noticing that GA #347 leaves many less advanced member states and their inhabitants to suffer the loss of their intellectual rights to more advanced member states and their inhabitants;
Concerned that, in order to enforce their patents abroad, patent holders must divulge the specifications of their technology, even if said technology's secrecy is a matter of crucial security;
Unconvinced that the ten-year minimum for foreign patent recognition set in clause four (4) is anything but an arbitrarily set number, with no absolutely consideration for the varying value of time on different member nations;
Aware that the concept of a patent is foreign to many member states' economic philosophies or ideologies, and may run entirely contrary to those of several member states;
Worried that GA #347 effectively forces nations without a patent system to adopt one, without recognizing the effects patents may have on their economic model or their ideological rights;
Disappointed that this resolution seeks to impose national law beyond its jurisdiction into other nations, compelling nations to recognize the legal power of patent agreements made in foreign nations;
Ultimately convinced that GAR #347 needlessly reduces economic freedoms and limits property rights;
The World Assembly hereby repeals General Assembly Resolution #347, "Foreign Patent Recognition".

General Assembly Resolution # 385
A resolution to modify universal standards of healthcare.
Area of Effect: Healthcare
Proposed by: Umeria
The World Assembly,
Understanding that there are many communicable diseases which spread easily if they are not treated hastily;
Noting that there are times when some communicable diseases cannot be treated hastily;
Realizing that such diseases should instead be promptly contained to prevent an international epidemic;
1) Tasks the Epidemic and Pandemic Alert and Response Center to define as a "serious disease" any disease which is harmful and contagious enough to create the need of a quarantine in the case of an outbreak of the disease;
2) Defines, for the purposes of this resolution:
an "epidemic" as a time, in a nation, when there are enough people with the same serious disease(as defined by the EPARC) to significantly decrease the nation's functioning and/or well-being;
an "infected person" as any person with a serious disease in a nation undergoing an epidemic of that disease;
a "quarantine" as any area where infected persons are kept in isolation in order to halt the spread of the disease;
a "treatment" as any action done to an infected person with the purpose of:
curing the infected person;
rendering the infected person non-contagious;
ensuring the infected person does not undergo any unnecessary harm; and/or
ensuring the infected person is not deprived of any necessities a non-infected person would normally receive;
3) Urges that all member nations, in the event of an epidemic in their nation, screen for any infected persons in that nation not yet known to be infected;
4) Requires that all member nations, to the best of their capability:
create at least one quarantine per epidemic in the nation;
move all infected persons into the appropriate quarantine that is nearest to their current location;
provide every treatment to all infected persons that are in a quarantine while taking any available precaution to ensure that the people administering these treatments are not infected;
move anyone that ceases to be an infected person out of the quarantine;
disband any quarantine that ceases to be of use; and
5) Mandates that the EPARC cover the costs of the requirements in clause 4 for any member nation that has difficulty maintaining quarantines.
General Assembly Resolution # 386
A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.
Category: Civil Rights
Proposed by: Imperium Anglorum
Aware that people have been deprived of their citizenship by unscrupulous states to prevent them from exercising their societally guaranteed political rights,
Believing that this unjustly prevents people from exercising those rights to which they are rightfully entailed, and
This august World Assembly hereby:
Prohibits nations from depriving a national of their nationality should such an action leave that national stateless; mandates that no national will be deprived of their nationality without the due process of law;
Expands the remit of the Global Emigration, Security, Travel And Passport Organisation, hereafter referred as the Passport Organisation, to include the issuance of World Assembly identification documents and passports to the former nationals of member states who have been deprived of their nationality by their government;
Determines that nations are to recognise passports verifiably and legitimately issued by both other member nations and by constituted World Assembly agencies as valid passports; reminds member nations that no mandates are here imposed on the nature of their border controls; and
Requires that these passports follow the Passport Organisation's international norms on the standards for security and identification in all internationally recognised passports.
