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 # 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.
General Assembly Resolution # 387
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
General Assembly Resolution #385 “Quarantine Regulation” (Category: Health; Area of Effect: Healthcare) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
The World Assembly,
Understanding that the logistics of quarantines raise many issues due to the individual's needs conflicting with society's;
Acknowledging that the resolution puts a number of measures into place which fixes some of these issues and improves the standards of quarantines;
Regretting that 385 GA fails to cover many issues involving medical ethics and medicine within a quarantine;
Questioning whether the resolution's four point definition of "treatment" is malleable enough to cover untested methods or procedures;
Concerned that 385 GA requires any appropriate treatment available to be given to infected persons regardless of whether the treatment would, as a side effect, permanently cripple the person;
Unsettled by the resolution's mandate to put infected persons in the nearest quarantine to them, causing drastic displacement if a person happened to be far away from their home at the time;
Distraught by 385 GA's complete lack of information on what constitutes appropriate force when restraining infected persons attempting to escape a quarantine;
Believing that the resolution does not properly address these matters, and skims many central issues on the topic of quarantines;
Worried that 385 GA makes it extremely difficult to pass further legislation on ethical problems as pertaining to quarantines;
Hoping to clear the hastiness of the resolution from these halls and pass a new resolution that fills the gaping hole 385 GA created;
Hereby repeals "Quarantine Regulation".
General Assembly Resolution # 388
A resolution to reduce barriers to free trade and commerce.
Category: Free Trade
Proposed by: Wallenburg
Observing the importance of intellectual property rights in many member states,
Cognizant of the risks associated with unnecessary interference in national policy on intellectual property,
Honoring this Assembly's pledged commitment to national sovereignty with regard to economic philosophy and ideology,
The World Assembly hereby:
1. Defines, for the purpose of this resolution:
"patent" as an official government statement granting an entity the legal right to exclude others from producing or generating profit with a particular invention,
"invention" as a process, good, device, or technology created by an entity,
2. Recognizes member nations' right to develop or not develop patent systems in general,
3. Forbids member nations from granting or recognizing patents for illegal inventions, as well as patents for any form of sapient life,
4. Directs a World Assembly Patent Service (WAPS) to grant any entity originating from a member state a patent, only if:
The entity holds a valid patent granted by the member nation it originates from for the same invention the entity seeks to patent via the WAPS,
The WAPS has not already granted a patent on the invention the entity seeks to claim as its intellectual property,
The entity demonstrates full responsibility for the development of the invention, an inventive step in developing it beyond merely observing or analyzing an already existing invention, and reasonable novelty and uniqueness of the invention in the member nation from which the entity originates,
The request meets any other basic formatting standards set by the WAPS in order to guarantee the legitimacy of the entity's patent request,
5. Tasks the WAPS with archiving all patents granted by member states or itself, and making its archives public to all member states and their citizens,
6. Further tasks the WAPS with evaluating the conditions of member states' economies and conducting any other relevant research in order to determine and set unbiased and appropriate expiration dates in each member nation on a case-by-case basis for its granted patents,
7. Mandates that all member states with patent systems observe all patents granted by the WAPS given that:
The patented invention is neither illegal, nor obsolete, nor in the public domain in that member nation at the time the inventive entity receives the patent,
The patented invention is of practical, commercial, or industrial use in that nation,
The patent holder has demonstrated intent to exercise its patent in that nation,
Previously passed World Assembly resolutions do not permit that member nation not to recognize the patent.
8. Requires all member states without patent systems to refrain from asserting intellectual property beyond their own borders.
General Assembly Resolution # 389
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;
Recognizing that in order to efficiently contain a disease, drastic measures are sometimes necessary;
Further understanding that in those cases, individual rights are often subverted in order to efficiently contain the disease;
Further noting that there are nations that take this subversion too far, and oppress their citizens in the name of disease control;
Wishing to ensure that every victim of an epidemic, even those in nations otherwise unable to promptly contain an outbreak, is safely quarantined without any unnecessary impingement of basic rights;
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 be clearly in excess of the normal expectancy;
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) Recommends 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 all quarantines of a certain epidemic when the epidemic ends; and
5) Mandates that the EPARC cover the costs of the requirements in clause 4 for any member nation that has difficulty maintaining quarantines;
6) Establishes a medical ethics board within the EPARC, tasking it to:
review matters of necessity and promulgation within quarantines;
ensure that such matters are handled with proper consideration of the infected person's well-being;
ensure that infected individuals are treated fairly with regards to individual freedom and dignity; and
7) Urges that member nations provide infected persons with comfort and security, to help them recover from their unfortunate situation.
General Assembly Resolution # 390
A resolution to improve world security by boosting police and military budgets.
Category: International Security
Proposed by: Imperium Anglorum
Concerned that nations are unwilling to prosecute violators of World Assembly legislation and actively destroying evidence of crimes against humanity,
Asserting that members have an obligation to comply with policies enacted by the democratic mandate of the World Assembly as they have consented into its jurisdiction, and
Believing that cases of non-prosecution or destruction of evidence ought be investigated and archived so that a more objective conception of the truth can be established for future reference,
This august World Assembly hereby:
Establishes and empowers the WACC, hereafter referred to as the Compliance Commission, to conduct investigations on matters vis-à-vis observance with World Assembly resolutions and thereby establish an impartial and objective factual basis for future claims of jurisdiction and prosecutions thereof;
Requires both civilian and military police forces to create a liaison point with the Commission to provide evidence on war crimes in particular and adherence to WA legislation in general, and to those ends, demands that documents requested by the Commission not to be destroyed and to be handed over promptly so long as state security permits;
Permits the Compliance Commission, in specific investigations, to accept information and data which are presented by non-member nations and nations not party to that investigation; allows the Compliance Commission to request the assistance of nearby nations to more accurately assess and access the facts of the matter under investigation;
Strongly encourages nations to cooperate with the Compliance Commission on matters relevant to their security and conduct their own investigations into compliance with World Assembly resolutions as soon as possible; mandates the Compliance Commission inform nations of the passage of legislation, promulgation of regulations, or enactment of administrative policies relevant to their nation; and
Reminds member nations that this resolution establishes the Compliance Commission as a truth-seeking commission and does not grant it the ability to enforce or compel warrants, subpoenas, or judicial action on any nation, its leaders, or its citizens.
