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.
Security Council Resolution # 25
A resolution to strike down Delegate-imposed barriers to free entry in a region.
Nominee (region): Islam
The Security Council,
NOTING that Islam has long been a vibrant and successful community, providing a place for discussion on religion and cultural issues, not just for Muslims but for those of all faiths and none.
AWARE that unfortunately some nations desire control over Islam, rather than working to build it. Crusader of Injustice has attempted to gather all Muslims on NationStates together, but rather than pursuing diplomacy, has used force. This can be seen in Islam, where they have used agents such as Tarciam and Saladin III to implement a password and eject natives like Khilafa States and The Aeneid, The Kaaba. Islam is now in great danger, with a refound likely to occur in the coming weeks, so The Security Council must act.
(1) "Native" as a nation which takes up residence in a region without the intention of furthering the goals and aims of a foreign force, in accordance with SC15;
(2) "Password Grieving" as an invading technique, where an invader-in-disguise hides in a region long enough to accumulate a high level of regional influence, and then becomes in the founderless region to immediately establish an invisible password, and begin emptying the region of those not affiliated with their invader organisation, in accordance with SC13;
DECLARES that The Kaaba, Khilafa States and The Aeneid are natives of Islam, and Tarciam, Saladin III, Bosnia-and-Herzegovina, Union of the States and Zambia 2 are not, as they are "furthering the goals and aims of a foreign force";
RESOLVING that this occupation of Islam constitutes "Password Grieving", which is preventing the spread of interregional peace and goodwill;
DISMAYED that Islam has been crippled by this foreign occupation;
HEREBY Liberates Islam.
Security Council Resolution # 26
A resolution to recognize outstanding contribution by a nation or region.
The World Assembly,
RECOGNIZING The Joint Systems Alliance as a vast intergalactic alliance of many peoples and species who have banded together in the hopes of achieving a more stable and peaceful galaxy,
OBSERVING the many positive actions of this alliance of technologically advanced nations, these actions being based around the alliances basic values of promoting peace within the nations own borders, within the borders of nations around the world or in other locations within the galaxy which are not members of the JSA, and within the vast and wild expanse of the dark void known as outer space,
ADMIRING the devotion of the members of this alliance to keeping the peace on an intergalactic scale and acknowledging the many political feats that their collective power humbly achieves, such as:
a.) - - - maintaining a massive and popular foreign embassy program within the gargantuan space station, Delta Capita,
b.) - - - holding the lengthy and lively JSA Joint Councils with the intent of resolving pressing issues with their fellow JSA nations, resolving issues with directly involved nations from outside of the alliance, and, overall, making decisions on the actions of the alliance and its members,
c.) - - - aiding in an intergalactic exploration and colonization effort initiated by non-JSA entity North Calaveras,
d.) - - - creating a highly organized and highly efficient form of government for the alliance run by officials of individual member nations the alliance,
PRAISING the many efforts of The Joint Systems Alliance and its members to be prepared to act quickly on any disruptions of any nations peace whenever these disruptions occur, these actions involving for the most part the sending of military assistance and/or humanitarian aid (medical supplies, equipment, personnel, et cetera) to the nations in need,
APPRECIATING the alliances firm code of conduct which assures that all nations within the alliance are to take military action only when it is just and necessary or if it is in defense, and believing that this system has been very effective due to witnessing numerous examples of JSA military action, such as:
a.) - - - the JSAs interference with the Malaklans genocidal attack on a human colony,
b.) - - - the JSAs collaborative effort to put down an attempt to conquer the galaxy by the Hyperborians of The steppe empire and their successful peace talks with the offender after the ordeal had been sorted out and the offender defeated,
c.) - - - and the two current triumphant defenses of JSA territory from a hostile arachnid race known as the Bugs,
FURTHER APPRECIATING the JSAs commitment to strong and free international trade and approving of their awareness of a need for a healthy world economy,
ACKNOWLEDGING in particular the alliances founder and leader nation, Magna omega, for the enormous devotion of time and effort made by this entity to the alliances organization, maintaining its political stability, and to the well-being of nations both within and outside of The Joint Systems Alliance,
HEREBY COMMENDS The Joint Systems Alliance for its many great contributions to the world of NationStates and for the honorable example it sets for other nations around the world
General Assembly Resolution # 95

The World Assembly,
RECOGNIZING the vital role that petroleum products play in the economies of many World Assembly states;
RECOGNIZING that significant amounts of the world's oil lies offshore;
REGRETTING the resultant need many nations have for offshore drilling;
DEFINES offshore drilling as the discovery and development of oil and natural gas resources which lie underwater;
DEFINES an oil producer as any corporation, association, group, or state which engages in offshore drilling in the waters of any World Assembly member state;
DEFINES a safe drilling depth as that sea floor depth at which an oil producer has the technology to ensure the safety of the involved workers, and to contain, to a reasonable extent, the environmental effects should an offshore drilling system become compromised by fire, explosion, natural disaster, or other cause;
ESTABLISHES the World Assembly Responsible Offshore Drilling Administration, or WARODA, with the following purposes:
1. To assess the safe drilling depth of the oil producers operating in World Assembly member states,
2. To research methods and tactics for preventing the compromise of offshore drilling systems by fire, explosion, natural disaster, and other causes,
3. To research methods and tactics for containing and reducing the effects on the environment should such a compromise occur,
4. To establish reasonable limits on the release of contaminated water from offshore drilling systems,
5. To review proposed drilling sites with regard to the sensitivity of the surrounding environment,
6. To restrict drilling in areas determined to have extremely sensitive environments,
REQUIRES oil producers to be in compliance with the limits, rules, and regulations made by the WARODA;
REQUIRES oil producers to maintain insurance and/or an emergency fund to be used in the event of the compromise of one of their offshore drilling systems;
REQUIRES this insurance and/or emergency fund to be of sufficient size to provide for the cleanup operations should a drilling system be compromised
REQUIRES oil producers to attempt, to the best of their ability, to reduce the severity of the environmental impact in the event of a compromise of one of their offshore drilling systems;
PROHIBITS any oil producer from operate an offshore drilling operation at any unsafe depth;
REQUIRES oil producers whose origin is within a World Assembly member state to keep their operations in compliance with the provisions of this act, regardless of whether the operation is within the territorial waters of a World Assembly member state, those of a non-member state, or international waters.
REQUIRES all offshore drilling operations in the territorial waters of World Assembly member states to be in compliance with the provisions of this act, regardless of the origin of the oil producer overseeing the operations;
AFFIRMS that this act does not prohibit offshore drilling at a safe drilling depth, provided that all provisions of this act are met;

General Assembly Resolution # 96
A resolution to reduce income inequality and increase basic welfare.
The General Assembly,
CONCERNED that many of the water supplies are contaminated with harmful microorganisms such as bacteria, parasites, viruses, etc.
REALIZING that some individuals, businesses, and nations dump hazardous materials, including biological, chemical, and radioactive waste that can enter water supplies
MOST, if not all of the toxins and harmful micro-organisms can cause illness, long-term health problems, or even death
NOTING that water is essential for most forms of life
ALSO NOTING that there are WA nations that may have a weak economy and therefore are unable to afford purified drinking water
CONCERNED that national populations could become infected by water-borne disease, which could spread to cause an epidemic;
CREATES the World Assembly Water Purification Treatment (WAWPT) to assist nations in cleaning and treating their water supplies
DECLARES that the WAWPT will create water purification systems to ensure the nations of clean water. If unable to place the water purification systems within their nation, the WAWPT will hire specialists to purify the water manually. If the WAWPT isn't able to purify the water manually, they would ask other nation neighbors whether or not it's possible to build the water purification systems within their land. If the WAWPT is unable to purify water manually, it will ask other neighboring nations for assistance to build water purification systems on their land with due financial compensation.
AFFIRMS that the WAWPT will create a clean universal water system to regulate nations that are low on water and would pump or irrigate water into that nation if it is low. The WAWPT will attempt to persuade and convince other WA members to create and enforce laws against pollution in international waters
PROHIBITS the dumping of toxins/toxic materials in any manner that could possibly contaminate water/water supplies
MANDATES basic education on water toxicity and waterborne disease
