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 # 114
A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.
The Assembled Nations of the World,
APPALLED at the dehumanizing practice of mutilating the genitals of girls and young women without medical necessity;
DEFINING Female Genital Mutilation, or FGM, as any of the following, separately or together, when done to an individual without that individual's fully informed uncoerced consent and when not medically necessary:
A. The removal, in whole or in part, of the clitoris, clitoral hood, labia minora or labia majora,
B. Any deformation or alteration of the vulva for the purpose of closing or reducing the size of the vaginal opening, or
C. Any other alteration of the female genitals for the purpose, or that has the effect, of reducing or modifying sexual function, desire, arousal or pleasure;
CLARIFYING that for a procedure to be "medically necessary" per the above definition it must be, in the opinion of a medical doctor, needed in order to prevent death or permanent physical harm to an individual, and must be the least invasive procedure that will prevent death or permanent physical harm;
ACKNOWLEDGING that FGM is a longstanding cultural tradition in some parts of the world;
however, ASSERTING that cultural or religious identity or tradition is wholly inadequate justification for the barbaric mutilation of an individual's sexual organs without that individual's fully informed consent;
BEMOANING the loss of sexual function and sexual pleasure that the victims of FGM experience as a result of these procedures;
CONCERNED about the medical complications that can result from these unnecessary and unsafe procedures, including infections of various kinds, infertility, scarring, complications during childbirth or even death;
DEDICATED to the fundamental human rights of girls and women and to the bodily integrity and sovereignty to which every individual is entitled;
hereby PROHIBIT the practice of Female Genital Mutilation in all member states;
REQUIRE member states to treat the infliction of FGM upon an individual, or causing FGM to be inflicted upon an individual under one's authority or control, as a criminal act, with penalties appropriate for the barbarism of the act;
INSIST that member states likewise criminalize the act of traveling outside the nation for the purpose of inflicting FGM or having FGM inflicted upon an individual;
MANDATE that member states with populations that have a history or tradition of FGM engage in a campaign to educate their populations about the negative effects of FGM and the right of all citizens to be free from FGM;
STRONGLY URGE member states to encourage, via diplomatic pressure or other legal, peaceful means, non-member states to prohibit FGM and populations of non-member states to abandon the practice;
CLARIFY that this resolution does nothing to prohibit the voluntary alteration of the genitals when the individual undergoing the procedure fully understands the potential consequences and grants informed uncoerced consent to the procedure; and
FURTHER CLARIFY that legally sanctioned parental authority, any legal right that parents or guardians may have to consent to medical procedures on behalf of an individual or any legal rights that any person or entity may have when acting in loco parentis in regards to an individual are not sufficient justification for inflicting FGM and that only the fully informed uncoerced consent of the individual herself is sufficient justification for allowing such procedures.
General Assembly Resolution # 115
A resolution to promote funding and the development of education and the arts.
The WA General Assembly,
ACKNOWLEDGING that not all nations in the World Assembly have the capability to launch a space program on their own due to the fact that space programs require incredible amounts of funding and technology that not all nations are capable of developing.
BELIEVING that all nations in the World Assembly should have the opportunity of exploring and researching space, even less capable ones that are not able to do so by themselves.
HEREBY tasks the World Assembly Scientific Programme (WASP) with the following:
1.) Collecting funds through private charity from WA nations, corporations, and individuals.
2.) Gathering scientists and researchers from WA nations to design, build, and launch the Word Assembly Space Research Station (WASRS).
3.) Ensuring that all member nations have equal access to the WASRS.
4.) Creating and enforcing customs policies for the WASRS.
DESIGNATES the World Assembly Space Research Station as a weapons free facility
The World Assembly General Assembly hereby commissions the World Assembly Space Research Station Program.

General Assembly Resolution # 116
A resolution to improve world security by boosting police and military budgets.
This World Assembly,
Noting many nations depend on nuclear fuel in order to maintain a reliable energy source,
Further noting the residues of nuclear fuel can, if poorly managed, create long-term contaminated, radioactive areas, resulting in birth defects, injuries, death; or fall into the hands of terrorists who seek to steal these residues for the manufacture of nuclear weapons and "dirty bombs";
Recognizing nations are sovereign to dispose of those residues as stated by national law, even if it means shipping nuclear waste to willing nations;
Further recognizing other nations are also sovereign to accept those residues, often in exchange for monetary compensation;
Concerned that underdeveloped nations accept nuclear waste without due safety guarantees or even basic handling knowledge, putting in danger the lives of individuals;
Enacts that the international transfer of nuclear waste must be governed in a way no sovereign country is exploited. To that end:
Affirms that the responsibility over nuclear waste belongs to both the sender and recipient nations.
The sender must assess and guarantee that the recipient has all the necessary structures so that the waste shall never leak, be stolen, or otherwise diverted from perpetual storage.
The recipient shall ask for transfer of technology so as to fulfill the requirements above. The sender shall comply as long as said transfer does not breach the senders national security. Should the sender be a nation that is not a WA member, but the waste also was (in whole or part) processed, produced or transported by any WA member, that member or members also shall be responsible for all the duties mentioned above.
If the recipient, for any reason, is unable to prove it has all the necessary structure so that international nuclear waste shall never leak, be stolen, or otherwise diverted from perpetual storage, that nation shall be forbidden to receive international waste.
Recipients of international nuclear waste also shall never place nuclear waste storage facilities near water sources, urban centers, areas with seismic activity, wildlife sanctuaries, international borders.
Be it clarified: this act in no way whatsoever affects what a sovereign nation can or cannot do, within its borders, with nuclear waste produced inside its borders.
General Assembly Resolution # 117
A resolution to restrict political freedoms in the interest of law and order.
AWARE that maintaining territorial integrity is critical to a government's ability to function,
NOTING that established international borders are of crucial importance to determining and maintaining said territorial integrity,
FURTHER NOTING that unclear and undilineated borders are often detrimental to a nations ability to maintain territorial integrity over border regions,
BELIEVING that clearly and precisely demarcating international borders is in the interest of all nations,
CALLS for states to work in cooperation in regards to demarcating and documenting international borders whenever possible,
ENCOURAGES the peaceful resolution of disputed borders whenever possible,
ESTABLISHES the General Assembly Border Demarcation Organization (GABDO), a committee dedicated to examining international borders and documenting them properly, arbitrating border disputes when requested, and maintaining accurate maps of international borders,
LIMITS the arbitration powers of the GABDO to situations in which all parties directly involved agree to request said arbitration,
STRONGLY SUGGESTS that nations involved in border disputes seek arbitration on the matter from the GABDO rather than engage in acts of violence against each other
INVITES non-WA nations to seek GABDO arbitration if all parties agree to respect said arbitration and a proper fee is paid
General Assembly Resolution # 118
A resolution to develop industry around the world.
Category: Advancement of Industry
Area of Effect: Protective Tariffs
The General Assembly,
Recognizing that an economic disincentive will discourage extreme risks (see c.1) to national populations,
1. Imposes an ethical and ad valorem tariff on any imported good that features one or several of the following criteria:
Said imported goods were manufactured, recovered or generated by those (excluding non-sentient employees, ex. Automata) who do not have,
1.a) The capacity to complete the workload of their occupation, while continuing to actively pursue an education and/or remain in a dignified state of mental and physical health;
1.b) An entitlement to,
Clean water, sanitation and/or nutrition;
Assured security --while at their workplace-- from violence, rape, abuse, poisoning and torture from people related to their workplace;
Sleep, recovery, leisure and rest;
Fair and just remuneration for the work they provide (unless their work is voluntary and entered into without being pressured, mislead or coerced), that will ensure them and their dependents a dignified existence, if no social protection exists for them otherwise;
2.a) Declares that the set percentage of an ad valorem tariff on each specific imported goods market value (relevant to c.1), shall be decided by the International Trade Administration (ITA), with consideration from input by any nation or commercial entity;
2.b) Requires the ITA to also consider the following details of each product and their source when finalizing the set percentage:
The products fulfillment of the aforementioned criteria that were stipulated in c.1;
The sources current economic strength and development and its reasonable capacity to provide laborers with the rights, entitlements and securities that were stipulated in c.1;
The competitiveness of the international market, concerning said product;
The market value and demand for said product;
Price elasticity of demand, and consumer necessities for said product;
Any existing past transgressions by the source, regarding attempted circumvention of tariffs;
2.c) Reaffirms that the ITA can rule a zero-percentage of a product's market value as being an acceptable tariff if their considerations (ex. necessity goods) suggest that a robust tariff would be unethical and/or unfair;
3.a) Affirms the freedom of all nations, as well as corporate or commercial entities to request an appeal for any decision made by the ITA;
3.b) Further Affirms the duty of the ITA to consider any legitimate request for an appeal, and in a timely fashion, reevaluate the contested decision;
3.c) Entrusts the ITA with the duty to store all collections from this ethical tariff in the 'WA Humanitarian Fund' for allocation (without running a deficit) to the various social justice and humanitarian programs of the World Assembly;
4. Obligates all member-nations -- within their own borders -- to make a coordinated effort to report to the World Assembly and prevent any distribution and/or sale of goods that have circumvented this ethical tariff, or otherwise were in the process of circumvention.
