World 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 # 89
A resolution to promote funding and the development of education and the arts.
The General Assembly,
RECOGNIZING the essential role of the Internet in fostering economic growth, spurring innovation, and in promoting free speech;
REALIZING that the Internet has historically operated as a free and open international market where developers and entrepreneurs have had access to potential consumers on an equal basis;
SHOCKED that Internet Service Providers may seek to increase their own profits by frustrating, impeding, or impairing, including through discriminatory pricing schemes, the right of consumers to access lawful Internet content, services, and applications;
DEFINES the Internet as the worldwide communications system that connects computers and networks of computers to each other;
FURTHER DEFINES Internet Service Provider as any person or entity that operates or resells and controls any facility used to provide Internet access directly to the public;
FURTHER DEFINES network discrimination as intentionally blocking, interfering with, discriminating against, impairing, or degrading the ability of any person to access, use, send, post, receive, or offer any lawful content, application, or service through the Internet or imposing a fee beyond the end user fees associated with providing the content, service, or application to the consumer.
(1) REQUIRES member countries to take immediate steps to adopt conforming laws, rules, and regulations, prohibiting network discrimination by Internet Service Providers in regard to lawful content, services, and applications;
(2) REQUIRES member countries to report back to the General Assembly within one year of the passage of this Act on their progress in implementing this Act;
(3) ENCOURAGES member countries to adopt laws, rules, and regulations providing a greater level of consumer protection than those provided for in this Act;
(4) PROVIDES that nothing in this Act shall be construed as prohibiting an Internet Service Provider from engaging in reasonable network management consistent with the principles of nondiscrimination and openness;
(5) FURTHER PROVIDES that nothing in this Act shall be construed as creating an affirmative obligation to provide Internet access or to limit the rights of member countries to enact laws regulating Internet content, applications, and services, including those relating to child pornography or laws limiting access to minors or persons under penal sanction, provided that such laws follow principles of network nondiscrimination and openness.
Security Council Resolution # 23
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
Security Council Resolution #22 “Condemn Ninja Pirate awesome town” shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
The World Assembly,
Affirming the existence of higher regulatory powers known as "Game Moderators" whose job it is to warn, delete, and ban offending nations,
Acknowledging that these higher powers have established the "Getting Help Request" as a means by which they may be petitioned for aid,
Aware that the offenses of spam and harassment mentioned in "Condemn Ninja Pirate awesome town" fall under the purview of the aforementioned Game Moderators and not of the World Assembly,
Admitting that Ninja Pirate awesome town consists of a great number of puppet nations when it is not being raided,
Still somewhat annoyed at the use of puppets to artificially inflate the population of a region,
Asserting, however, that the simple presence of puppets in a region does not merit the world's attention nor a permanent entry into the legislative record of the World Assembly,
Encouraging all nations to deal with spam and harassment through the appropriate channel of a "Getting Help Request" rather than asking the World Assembly to give such miscreants a badge and eternal world-wide fame,
Repeals "Condemn Ninja Pirate awesome town".
General Assembly Resolution # 90
A resolution to improve world security by boosting police and military budgets.
The General Assembly,
Recognising the right of nations to legalise, illegalise, restrict or tax recreational drugs as they see fit, within the bounds of any past or future WA resolutions concerning such substances,
Aware that nations with widely differing policies on recreational drugs may share borders,
Conscious of the high priority many nations place on maintaining strong border control,
Asserting that nations on both sides of any international border are equally responsible for the prevention of the illegal trafficking of any goods, in either direction, across said border,
Recognising the right of nations to punish, according to their own laws, persons convicted of the production, transport, purchase or supply of illegal substances within their borders,
Worried that lack of accord over such issues may lead to conflict and division between WA member states, persecution of innocent states or individuals ostensibly to prevent traffic of recreational drugs, and/or aggressive support of illegal traffickers in order to strain, subvert and destabilise national law enforcement agencies,
1. Defines, for the purposes of this resolution, drugs as chemical substances that affect the central nervous system, causing changes in behavior and/or potential addiction, and defining all drugs as being recreational, unless they are widely recognised within individual nations as legitimate medical substances and used in a manner deemed appropriate by medical experts, or they are used for a recognised sacramental purpose;
2. Demands that all nations, in taking action to suppress illegal drug trafficking, recognise the sovereignty of other nations; neither pressuring said nations to adopt changes in their recreational drugs policy, nor violating international borders in military or policing actions, covert or otherwise, without consent; nor using domestic recreational drugs policy as justification for any breach of human rights or international law;
3. Requires that no nation take action against recreational drug production by biological, chemical or biochemical methods, such as the introduction of crop-destroying pests or of abortive strains, which may be judged likely to affect the production of nations wherein said crops are legal, or likely to create health risks;
4. Requests that the law enforcement, customs and border officials of any nations sharing borders cooperate and share information, as judged relevant by both nations, in order to better prevent illegal traffic;
5. Urges that all nations producing recreational drugs closely monitor and publish records dealing with the production capacity and exchange record of any body or individual producing, transporting or purchasing such substances other than for personal consumption;
6. Recognises the right of vessels, engaged in the transport of recreational drugs legal in both exporting and importing countries, to use international territory without threat of impediment or harassment from other nations;
7. Reaffirms the right of nations to monitor vessels using international territory in order to prevent illicit activity;
8. Recognises the duty of both exporting and importing nations to closely monitor said goods at point of departure and arrival;
9. Recognises the right of nations to deny entry to vessels transporting recreational drugs.

General Assembly Resolution # 91
A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.
Category: Civil Rights
Proposed by: Sionis Prioratus
AWED by the progress the World Assembly has made in Civil Rights;
AWARE that in spite of said progress, there are still persons who, while free from discrimination, are denied their basic self-sense of personhood & identity, an abuse often beginning in the earliest infancy;
FURTHER AWARE said denials are a source of untold countless horrors, among them depression & suicide;
DESIROUS of eliminating those horrors;
IT IS ESTABLISHED:
Majoritarian genders (MG): The most prevalent genders found on any given sapient species (e.g. female & male) defined not only by genetic and/or anatomical features, but also by cultural roles each culture usually ascribes them. This resolution does not in any way deny that many sapient species do not have dichotomy in gender; but may differ in number of prevalent genders;
Intersex persons: Due to genetic variations, cannot be assigned to any MG by evidence of genetic and/or anatomical features;
Transgender persons: Born in a given MG, their basic self-sense of personhood & identity belong in another MG;
Intergender persons: Self-identify as belonging to more than one MG at once, or not belonging to any MG at all; may express combinations of MG attributes, or none at all; also may have any MG features;
Gender-adequation procedure (GAP): Medical procedures seeking to assign to intersex, transgender or intergender persons gender-related anatomical and/or genetic features needed to fit in a person-centered adequate gender.
2) No intersex, transgender or intergender person shall be considered diseased by the sole reason of being intersex, transgender or intergender;
3) No nation can prohibit GAPs to intersex, transgender or intergender persons; nor can they be prohibited to travel to other nations for the sole reason of seeking GAPs in said nations; nor can return be denied for the sole reason of having had GAPs;
4) No intersex, transgender or intergender person shall be forced to choose to fit in any gender; persons are free to keep whatever life-compatible features Nature gave them. They shall be recognized as intersex (or culturally equivalent gender terms) if documents require gender identification;
5) Full recognition shall be given to gender changes & intersex/gender status in international/national personal documents, if they mention gender;
6) No intersex, transgender or intergender persons of any age shall have GAPs until they are mature enough to make an informed decision regarding their own future;
7) Intersex, transgender & intergender persons shall be:
a) Provided access to a list of expert GAP providers, as well as peer support, before & after GAPs. Said support shall also be provided to intersex, transgender & intergender persons who choose not to have GAPs;
b) Consistently told the truth, within the limits of their advisors knowledge and belief (including providers honesty about uncertainty) & given copies of their medical records as soon & as often as they ask for them;
c) Allowed to have GAPs after they have been informed of the risks & benefits (plus evidence, or lack thereof, for both).
General Assembly Resolution # 92
A resolution to promote funding and the development of education and the arts.
BE IT RESOLVED THAT THESE PEOPLES OF THE WORLD ASSEMBLED

3) To provide a public forum for free and unhindered debate on scientific research and issues which scientists from all member nations may participate in.
II.
