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 # 55
A resolution to recognize outstanding contribution by a nation or region.
The World Assembly:

APPLAUDS the dedicated service to the World Assembly by representing the region NationStates for over 6 years as the WA Delegate without losing the Delegate seat to any foreign hostiles,
IMPRESSED that everyday Mikeswill has featured a random nation in the regional World Factbook Entry and on the Regional Message Board without exception or prejudice,
RECOGNIZING Mikeswill as one of the most dedicated nations in the world,
COMMEND Mikeswill based on the appraisals mentioned above.
The World Assembly hereby commends Mikeswill.

Category: Civil Rights
Proposed by: Knootoss
The World Assembly,
BELIEVING that all persons have the right to a fair trial;
HAVING PREVIOUSLY ruled that Member States may not extradite a person to a jurisdiction where there is probable cause to believe they would be subjected to torture;
HAVING FURTHER ruled that nations must facilitate the extradition of those suspected of certain severe crimes, subject to national and international law;
ENTITLES all persons inside the jurisdiction of World Assembly Member States to a legal appeal in the nation from which extradition is requested;
DECLARES that persons inside the jurisdiction of a World Assembly Member State may not be extradited to another World Assembly Member State, in the absence of a treaty governing the terms of extradition or a national law governing the terms of extradition to nations with whom no treaty has been established;
FURTHER DECLARES that a legal appeal against extradition must also be accepted if any of the following are true:
a) The nation requesting extradition cannot provide evidence that unless rebutted would be sufficient to prove the act for which extradition is sought;
b) The act for which extradition is sought does not constitute a crime in the nation from which extradition is requested;
c) The crime for which extradition is sought is of a political nature;
d) The punishment for the crime for which extradition is sought would not be administered in the nation from which extradition is requested;
e) The nation from which extradition is requested claims jurisdiction over the crime for which extradition is sought;
CLARIFIES that the nation from which extradition is requested may also refuse to extradite for other reasons, insofar as such refusal does not contradict existing World Assembly resolutions;
ENCOURAGES Member States to enact legislation which facilitates the prosecution of cross-border crime.
General Assembly Resolution # 148
A resolution to reduce barriers to free trade and commerce.
The General Assembly,
Noting that precious minerals such as tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold are mined or taxed by armed groups in various failed states and undeveloped nations, with the profits used to fund their militarization,
Acknowledging that said armed groups will often coerce locals to work in extremely dangerous working conditions for mining where numerous human rights abuses are committed,
Understanding that a boycott of conflict minerals in products is oftentimes impossible to do, as it is extremely hard to track the movement, trade and refining of conflict minerals,
Defines "Conflict Mineral" as any ore or metal, the purchase or taxation of which financially supports non-state militant(s),
1. Prohibits the taxation of minerals by a non-state militant group either directly or via proxy;
2. Outlaws the acquisition, ownership or management of a mining/drilling location by a non-state militant group either directly or via proxy;
3. Demands that member-nations endeavor to secure the transportation and trade of minerals so that it can be done reasonably safely without fear of reprisal or injury to the transporter by non-state militant groups, or fear of theft by non-state militant groups;
4. Forbids the direct act or facilitation of purchasing, trading or refining of conflict minerals, although charges against transgressors may be lifted if it is determined by domestic courts that the status of said mineral(s) was not genuinely known to be that of "conflict mineral(s)" by the transgressor;
5. Establishes the International Geological and Metallurgical Laboratory (IGML) as a subdivision of the WA Scientific Programme (WASP);
6. Requests that the IGML work in coordination with member-nations to investigate the source of suspected conflict minerals, and provide analysis without charge (e.g., laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy) for member-nations on the sources of minerals whose sources are widely disputed;
7. Encourages member-nations to urge their domestic businesses to verify the sources of minerals used in their products;
8. Permits Member-Nations to recognize non-state militant groups as de facto state militant groups for the purposes of this legislation, and hereby avoid compliance issues with c.1-2,4 but only if there is clear and present evidence to substantiate c.8.a, and also substantiate either c.8.b or c.8.c, or both:
(A) supporters of the de jure state or neutrals involved in the conflict will not be denied social equality with all other citizens of their nation of residence by the non-state militant group (or a government established with its assistance) if said group gains sovereign or international recognition or acquires a sovereign monopoly over the legitimate use of violence or authority;
(B) the militant group is a response to some form of injustice (e.g., social, political, racial or economic);
(C) the uncoerced will of the people of the nation occupied by the militant group is invested in such a non-state militant group more so than the state militant group (e.g., a democratic liberation front).
General Assembly Resolution # 149
A resolution to reduce income inequality and increase basic welfare.
Category: Social Justice
Proposed by: A mean old man
The World Assembly,
ASSERTING its belief that the people of all nations have a right to live without unnecessary fears of damage to their physical well-being,
RECOGNIZING that many companies produce goods which significantly degrade or cease to function after a period of time,
BELIEVING that the average length of time that certain goods last must be known in order to promote the safety of the consumer,
NOTING that this holds true for items such as medical supplies/equipment and food,
DEFINES, solely for the purposes of this resolution, a "necessity" as any item which is intended for organic consumption and/or an item that, if it was not in proper condition or if it was not functioning, would lead to the deprivation of any sort of bodily activity that is required for the extension of any organism's lifetime,
CHARGES any distributor of any necessity to attain an accurate and average prediction of how long each and every necessity that they distribute will last until it degrades to a level of quality at which it will directly "lead to the deprivation of any sort of bodily activity that is required for the extension of [one's] lifetime,"
MANDATES that the distributors of a necessity provide, in a readily comprehensible fashion, all of the information that they have been charged to acquire by the previous clause to any who wish to view it,
FURTHER MANDATES that any recipient(s) of a necessity be provided with the information on how long the exact necessity that they are receiving lasts by the distributor of said necessity.
Security Council Resolution # 56
A resolution to express shock and dismay at a nation or region.
Nominee: the Greater German Reich
The World Assembly,
DEDICATED to the furtherment of international peace, goodwill and harmony between regions,
ACKNOWLEDGING the region of The Greater German Reich as a region that was created for the sole purpose of disrupting the harmony of ordinarily peaceful and active regions, leftist or otherwise.
RECOGNISING The Greater German Reich as a threat to the safety and stability of the world
FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGING the havoc, mayhem and destruction the above mentioned region has caused though its considerable raiding forces (under the leadership of its Founder Leather-clad germany) to other passive and democratic regions such as the most recent examples of Leningrad, Socialist Alliance, The Jewish Zionist Empire and to a lesser extent the New Union of Socialist Nations and the Democratic Socialist Alliance.
REMINDING nations that at least one liberation resolution (SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION # 41 "Liberate Republicans") has had to be imposed by the Security Council in response to the hostile acts of The Greater German Reich
ALARMED at the inability for many of the smaller regions, on which the forces of The Greater German Reich prey, to successfully repel its raiding parties.
DISTURBED at the complete disregard for peace, democracy, regional/state sovereignty and freedom exercised by The Greater German Reich at all levels.
DISMAYED at the fact that The Greater German Reich has not been held accountable to its crimes in this forum sooner and the fact that the overwhelming feelings of injustice for the natives of the targeted regions is further reinforced by the lack world support and lack of punishment for The Greater German Reich
BELIEVING that steps must be taken in order to bring attention to the horrendous acts carried out by The Greater German Reich
CONCLUDING the actions of The Greater German Reich to be especially abominable and to be in utter opposition of the World Assembly Security Council's goal of spreading interregional peace and goodwill
HEREBY CONDEMNS The Greater German Reich
