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 # 80
A resolution to promote funding and the development of education and the arts.
The General Assembly,
Alarmed at the lack of a primary education for citizens in numerous member nations,
Recognizing that a lack of basic and untainted education prevents literacy, political freedoms, cosmopolitanism and social, political and scientific development,
Alternatively Recognizing that education is a stable catalyst for the growth of economic sectors in national economies that otherwise cannot benefit off scientific and intellectual innovation and astuteness,
1. Declares that all citizens have the right to be educated, and thus be provided with the following capabilities through some sort of variation of edification:
Comprehensive literacy skills and fluency in the official or popular language(s) of their nation;
An understanding of basic arithmetical operations, geometrics and fundamental mathematics;
Cognizance of financial mathematics and concepts, currency and economics that is appropriate to the economy of their nation;
A familiarity with their nations governmental policies, processes, civics, rights and freedoms;
A fair and impartial recollection of historical national and international events, politics and society;
An accurate understanding of ecological life, nature and the environment;
A fair and impartial familiarity to common cultural customs, beliefs and ideologies in their nation of residence and abroad;
Knowledge of the geographical and/or astrographical characteristics of their surrounding environment, including natural, political and demographical characteristics;
2. Further requires that member nations attempt to provide citizens of a nation the aforementioned education in the fullest possible form for any citizen that is mentally incapable, neurologically undeveloped, or otherwise incapable of learning or retaining within reason the fundamental aspects to a basic education;
3. Establishes a division of the WA General Accounting Office (GAO), entitled the Global Initiative for Basic Education (GIBE) to oversee the creation, accuracy and continuance of a registrar that lists all member nations that are currently deemed to be genuinely unable to economically support the requirements of basic edification based on this document;
4. Declares that the WA General Accounting Office (GAO) shall allocate and provide funds at the request of any nation for the purposes of complying to this legislation and providing quality education, so long as the recipient nation:
(a) Uses the donation(s) exclusively to provide a basic education to citizens of their nation;
(b) Is deemed to be genuinely unable to economically support the requirements of basic education based on this document;
5. Encourages further legislation on the rights and education of the mentally and physical handicapped.

The General Assembly,
Defining disaster as an event that causes massive loss of life or property damage,
Noting the vast amounts of wealth spent annually by member states, NGOs, and the World Assembly itself in providing humanitarian aid after disasters,
Recognizing that some of the loss of life and damage to property could be avoided if a nation had some warning a disaster was pending,
Seeking to prevent the loss of as many lives or the damage of as much property as possible when disasters occur,
I. Establishes the Global Organization for Public Safety (GOPS) which shall be tasked with monitoring public hazards,
(a) Defines public hazard as a condition, event, or situation that could become a disaster or makes a disaster possible or likely to occur,
(b) The GOPS shall operate:
(1) Meteorological centers to monitor the weather,
(2) Seismological centers to monitor risks such as earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic activity,
II. Authorizes the GOPS to inspect structures such as dams, levees, and high-rise buildings in urban areas, which could cause disasters if the structure was to fail,
(a) All the nations to be effected shall be alerted if there is a likely failure of the structure,
III. Mandates GOPS shall issue warnings to national governments when they suspect a disaster is pending, and shall also notify the various NGOs, WA Organizations, and National Governments which frequently send humanitarian aid, in the hopes the aid will arrive sooner if advanced notice is given;
IV. Declares member states maintain the right to operate their own disaster alert system,
(a) Such an organization must share all information about possible disasters with the GOPS,
V. Mandates member states to respond to alerts in a manner that will protect the lives of as many civilians as possible,
(a) If the GOPS finds a member state to have ignored an alert, or responded insubstantially to an alert, the member state shall be mandated to pay the victims of the disaster an amount determined by the GOPS.
General Assembly Resolution # 82
A resolution to reduce income inequality and increase basic welfare.
This World Assembly,
BELIEVING that clinical drug trials are essential to safe research and development of medication;
RECOGNISING that drugs which are initially tested before use are safer and more beneficial to the world healthcare system;
WISHING to create a uniform system, recognised by all WA-Nations, which can harmonise the system of drug trials across the world to improve medication therapy for the benefit of humanity.
REQUIRES Clinical Trials to be conducted along these lines;
1) Clinical Trials must have a placebo to be trialled alongside the actual drug, to counteract any possible psychosomatic interefence. These will then be trialled alongside a Control group, who receive no drug at all, to measure it's effects. Other formats of trials (variants of doses, comparisons of similar drug therapy options) will also be valid within this clinical framework.
2) Trials must be conducted in a Double Blind format, whereby neither the test subject, nor the person administering the drug is aware if the subject is taking a drug, or a placebo, in order to negate any influence from healthcare professionals, deliberate or otherwise.
3) All participants in Clinical Trials must have given their consent to be included in the trial.
4) All participants in a Clinical Trial must be made fully aware of any and all possible risks associated with the drug being trialled. Participants who wish to leave a trial, having been fully briefed of the side effects will be free to do so, subject to possible forfeiture of any possible monies earned for their participation.
5) Any persons who by way of age, disability, or mental competence are unable to give consent for the trial themselves, may be able to have a parent, guardian or ward of the court enter a consent on their behalf, if it is shown that there is a benefit to them participating in the trial.
CREATES the Clinical Excellence Commission (CEC), with the authority of overseeing clinical trials are conducted along these guidelines, compiling all unedited trial results and storing them for access from any state or healthcare authority, along with holding enquiries into any potential malpractice;
MANDATES that Clinicians or Nations may apply for exemptions from the regulations to the CEC, but such matters would have to be reviewed on a case by case basis and if any exemptions are granted, it will be due to extreme extenuating circumstances.
RECOMMENDS that the CEC work alongside health authorities of individual member states, in order to promote clinical trial standards and improve the harmony of healthcare across the nations of the World Assembly;
General Assembly Resolution # 83
A resolution to reduce barriers to free trade and commerce.
The World Assembly,

REQUIRES owners of bridges and tunnels that cross internationally recognized borders to assure that said bridges and tunnels meet ITSC standards;
REQUIRES governments that operate customs, immigration, or other border checkpoints to assure that signage, roads, gates, customs plazas, sidewalks, curbs, and streetlamps at those checkpoints meet ITSC standards;
STRONGLY URGES governments in member states to assure that their domestic roads and related infrastructure meet or exceed ITSC standards; and
PROHIBITS governments in member states from requiring international commercial road vehicles and operators from other member states to meet higher safety standards than those required by the ITSC, unless those higher safety standards also apply to domestic motor carriers.
General Assembly Resolution # 84
A resolution to increase democratic freedoms.
The General Assembly,
Appalled by governments that resort to enforcing disappearances, most commonly to deny individuals of their existing civil and political rights,
