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 # 99
A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.
The General Assembly,
Applauding the work of previous and currently adopted legislation to establish perimeters for international territory, and the elimination of servitude, terrorism and international piracy on a coordinated multilateral platform,

General Assembly Resolution # 100
A resolution to improve world security by boosting police and military budgets.
The World Assembly,
OBSERVING that a single person, known as a cyberterrorist, can potentially cause strife and havoc to the world of information technology, with relatively little funds, equipment or experience;
FURTHER OBSERVING that most cyberterrorists act and plan either individually or in groups on the internet;
BELIEVING that it is crucial to warn member states on potential cyberterror threats that may be directed at them from radical or violent groups or individuals, so they can take action to defend themselves from such attacks;
FURTHER BELIEVING that member states should also respect, as best as possible, civil liberties and the individual right to privacy when tackling cyberterrorism;
DEFINES for the purpose of this resolution:
Information technology, as the development, implementation, and maintenance of computing devices and software systems to organize and communicate information electronically;
Cyberterrorism: as any premeditated, politically or ideologically motivated attack, or threat thereof, through the use of information technology, against information or telecommunication networks, computer systems, computer programs, and data, which results in significant disruption, distress or losses of physical, economic, or infrastructural nature to targets, by sub-national groups or agents;
Internet Service Provider(ISP): as any person or entity that operates or resells and controls any facility used to provide Internet access directly to the public;
DECLARES that conspiring, planning, carrying out, funding or aiding acts of cyberterrorism shall be outlawed in all member states, and that member states will commit to prosecute violators to the fullest extent possible in their jurisdiction;
FORBIDS member states from conspiring, planning, carrying out, funding or aiding acts of cyberterrorism, and requires member states who carry out such activities to cease and desist immediately;

General Assembly Resolution # 101
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
General Assembly Resolution #96 “The Clean Water Resolution” (Category: Social Justice; Strength: Significant) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
The World Assembly,
RECOGNIZING the vital importance of access to water,
HOWEVER REGRETTING that this particular resolution was rushed to a vote despite being environmentally and economically impractical,
APPALLED that the resolution gives the World Assembly Water Purification and Treatment (WAWPT) the unlimited power to divert water from one nation to another,
NOTING that the diversion of water can have disastrous environmental and economic consequences, including climate change, destruction of habitats, adverse health effects, interference with shipping, and destruction of fisheries,
DISMAYED that the resolution does not require the WAWPT to provide compensation to governments or private parties from whom it diverts water,
CONCERNED that the WAWPT's mandate to create a universal water system is unnecessarily expensive in duplicating the efforts of domestic government agencies and private companies that already provide water service,
PERPLEXED at the resolution's failure to provide definitions of "toxic materials" and "contamination,"
DISTRESSED that the resolution could be construed to ban additives to water that are beneficial to public health,
TROUBLED that the resolution fails to promote - let alone mention - water conservation as the conservation of water may negate or at least lessen the need for the diversion of clean water,
WORRIED that the clause regarding basic education is short on details, which may result in a nation being compliant while not upholding the true spirit of the resolution by, perhaps, educating their people on how to make water toxic as a part of military training,
HEREBY REPEALS Resolution 96, "The Clean Water Resolution."
General Assembly Resolution # 102
A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.
The Assembled Nations of the World,
APPALLED that sapient beings are still subjected to genocide, war crimes and other atrocities;
VEXED that there now exists no international justice system by which to try the perpetrators of these heinous crimes should their home nations refuse to do so;
DEFINING, for the purpose of this resolution:
A. "Genocide" as any act intended to destroy, in whole or in part, any group of sapient beings on the basis of a shared ancestry, nationality, ethnicity, religion, race, culture, sex, gender, sexual orientation, age or age range or any other identifiable real or perceived characteristic
B. "War crimes" as any of the following committed as part of armed conflict:
1. Military actions that intentionally target civilians, resulting in civilian casualties
2. Murder, torture or other cruel or degrading treatment of prisoners of war or surrendered enemies
3. Mass internment or use for slave labor of civilians
4. Excessive destruction of occupied areas or natural resources
5. The use of nuclear, chemical, biological or radiological weapons against a civilian population with foreknowledge of likely civilian casualties
C. "Crimes against humanity" as any of the following committed as part of a systematic attack on a population of sapient beings:
2. Torture or other cruel, degrading or inhumane treatment
3. Forced sterilization or acts of sexual violence
4. Forced population transfer;
hereby ESTABLISH the International Criminal Court (ICC) for the purpose of bringing to justice those responsible for the above crimes;
AUTHORIZE the ICC to issue arrest warrants for any person ("wanted person") suspected of these crimes if their home jurisdiction refuses to bring them to justice, unless an extant WA resolution requires they be tried elsewhere;
INSIST that no warrant be issued by the ICC without probable cause;
REQUIRE member states to arrest wanted persons within their jurisdictions and extradite them to the ICC;
STRONGLY URGE member states to pursue the extradition of wanted persons not under their jurisdictions by all legal and peaceful means;
TASK the ICC with trying those accused and sentencing those convicted, subject to the following:
A. The ICC shall contract with a member state to hold pre-trial detainees ("defendants") and to house, for the duration of their sentences, those convicted by the ICC ("convicts") and sentenced to incarceration
B. Defendants have the following rights: a reasonably speedy trial, competent legal representation, to call witnesses on their behalf and examine witnesses against them, to refuse to incriminate themselves and to fully understand and participate in the proceedings
C. The ICC shall not convict a defendant without proof of guilt beyond a reasonable doubt
D. An acquitted defendant shall be immediately and unconditionally released to their nation of origin or, if that nation will not accept them, another consenting nation
E. Once acquitted by the ICC, no person shall be retried by the ICC for the same offense
F. The ICC shall never impose the death penalty
G. Convicts shall have the right to present to the ICC exculpatory evidence that was not available at trial; the ICC may reverse a conviction at any time
H. The ICC shall establish such rules and regulations, not conflicting with this resolution, concerning its operations as it sees fit, consistent with the principles of fairness and justice.
