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 # 60
A resolution to improve world security by boosting police and military budgets.
The World Assembly,
REALIZING that nuclear disasters, whether accidentally caused, or caused as result of conflict, pose a serious threat to the worlds population,
UNDERSTANDING that nuclear radiation can have catastrophic effects on the environment and international population if the disaster is not dealt with accordingly, as contaminated waterways and nuclear fallout can disperse nuclear radiation across international borders,
ALARMED that many nations do not adequately respond to nuclear disasters, or underestimate their severity, placing not just their national population, but the international community at risk,
1) DEFINES, for the purposes of appropriately interpreting the material of this resolution:
-A nuclear disaster as any event, brought about intentionally or accidentally, that results in the widespread expulsion of harmful concentrations of nuclear radiation
- A contaminated zone as an area containing concentrations of radiation that can be harmful or fatal with prolonged exposure.
2) ESTABLISHES the Nuclear Disaster Response Organization (NDRO), which shall perform the following duties:
A) Confirming the severity of nuclear disasters, that is, the amount of radiation released, and its extent and distribution.
B) Providing cleanup crews to control the spread of radiation, and prevent individuals from receiving harmful doses of radiation.
C) Determining the causes of accidental nuclear disasters, for the purposes of preventing similar disasters in the future.
3) MANDATES that all member nations report nuclear disasters to the NDRO, and any surrounding nations that may have been affected by the disaster.
4) REQUIRES that nations afflicted by nuclear disasters take the following measures in dealing with the disaster, including, but not limited to:
A) Evacuating any areas that have been contaminated by radiation as a result of the disaster, beginning with areas closest to the source of radiation and moving outwards.
B) Providing clean water to areas that have had their sources of drinking water contaminated as a result of the disaster.
C) Providing immediate medical services to those suffering from radiation poisoning as a result of the disaster.
D) Clearly marking contaminated zones with multi-lingual signs, using languages present in the surrounding area.
E) Taking appropriate measures to prevent the spread of radiation by restricting or diverting the flow of contaminated waterways, where possible.
General Assembly Resolution # 61
A resolution to promote funding and the development of education and the arts.
Category: Education and Creativity
Area of Effect: Artistic
Proposed by: Glen-Rhodes
Desiring to strengthen and protect the rights of authors in their literary and artistic works, as well as in the intellectual means of the production of such works,
Recognizing the legitimacy of national copyright laws, but understanding that international rules must be established to protect the rights of authors abroad,
The World Assembly therefore
DEFINES, for the purpose of this resolution, copyright law as any law that grants the author of an original work of creative artistic or literary value exclusive right for a certain period of time in relation to that work, including its publication, distribution, and adaptation, after which time the work enters the public domain; public domain as the collection of works neither protected under copyright law nor under state ownership, available for free use by the public; intellectual property as intangible property that is the result of original artistic and commercial creativity, and that owners have been granted exclusive right over; fair use as the use of any copyrighted work or intellectual property for educational, personal, private, critical, or satirical purposes, provided that such use does not excessively infringe on the exclusive right or profits of the owner;
REAFFIRMS that national copyright laws apply to works created, distributed, and used in that nation, regardless of the origin of such works or the nationality or citizenship of the owner,
NOTES that such affirmation does not grant immunity to persons or institutions being held liable by foreign governments or copyright holders for the infringement of any copyrighted work or intellectual property, given that sufficient proof can establish a direct intent to infringe upon the rights of the owner of the copyrighted work or intellectual property;
DECLARES that national copyright laws must grant the following rights and protections to the owners of any copyrighted work or intellectual property: the owners exclusive right over the work or intellectual property, including its publication, distribution, and adaptation; the right of immediate copyright protection abroad of a work following placement in tangible form, with no legal or statutory formalities required for protection; the protection of the work or intellectual property from the publication, distribution, adaptation, display, demonstration, reproduction, and storage in electronic form by any person or government entity without the consent of the owner, for a period of time extending at least twenty-five years after the death of the creator, or the shorter of thirty years from publication or forty years from creation, if the work is of corporate authorship;
FURTHER DECLARES that national copyright laws must not discriminate in favor of domestic works, however affirming that nations may subject domestic works to additional requirements for copyright protection;
ALSO AFFIRMS that copyrighted works may be used freely and legally, if such use can be proven to be legitimate fair use;
PROTECTS the right of a copyright holder or intellectual property owner to sell, trade, or otherwise transfer their exclusive right to another party; to release the copyrighted work or intellectual property in to the public domain; and to license the use of copyrighted work or intellectual property to any person or institution, under any reasonable terms they so wish.

General Assembly Resolution # 63
A resolution to increase the quality of the world's environment, at the expense of industry.
The World Assembly abroad,
ACKNOWLEDGING the importance of maintaining Outer Space as an environment for all nations to explore in the safest manner possible,
UNDERSTANDING that the hazardous accumulation of space debris in recent years is contributed by space-voyaging nations,
CONCERNED that nations may pollute this internationally encompassing environment, as space debris that is uncontrolled will not remain in one area forever and may even gravitate towards celestial bodies or pose a hazard to satellites and astronauts,
DEFINING Outer Space as the void which occupies the largely empty areas of the universe outside the atmosphere of any planet, star or other celestial body, where the edge of any celestial bodys atmosphere is understood to be the specific position where a craft would have to travel faster than orbital velocity in order to receive sufficient aerodynamic lift from the atmosphere to support itself.
1) Prohibits space-voyaging nations from damaging or polluting Outer Space unnecessarily.
2) Further Prohibits any unnatural addition of hazardous debris to a frequented travel route or within dangerous proximity to a celestial body where nations reside.
3) Forbids the intentional atmospheric reentry of any vessel, satellite, or object of non-weaponry purpose, if its reentry presents a substantial and unjustifiable risk to the health of any resident of a nation.
4) Stipulates that all vessels, and residences in Outer Space recycle and reuse waste material to the best of their ability, and dispose of it in a manner that is least likely to cause unnecessary risk.
5) Establishes the Coordination of Space Consortium (C.O.S.C), in order to:
I. Support peaceful scientific research carried out by member states regarding the environmental effects of interstellar travel and Outer Space in general.
II. Safely organize, and coordinate the trajectories and flight paths of space vessels and satellites belonging to nations that are willing to share such vital information.
III. Research and devise new technologies and methodologies to improve waste management systems in Outer Space as well as the longevity of satellites and other space equipment while minimalizng space travel's dependency on disposable space equipment such as rocket stages.
6) Encourages nations to adopt the C.O.S.Cs technological designs or environmental practices if applicable, or otherwise remain outside of Outer Space until their crafts and crew are compliant with its standards.
