∞ Increasing focus on recruitment and outreach efforts allows us to increase overall influence and make our brand more well-known, as well as increase immigration.
∞ Unabridged immigration is necessary for new arrivals allow our region to increase in scale, complexity, and diversity.
∞ Establishing a Regional Embassy in the NS Forums would make our brand more well-known around NationStates and establish a greater presence on the forums.
∞ The use of executive actions by the Secretariat is critical for maintaining regional security and efficiently improving the region without undergoing the arduous legislative process for mostly trivial, everyday tasks.
∞ Current General Assembly powers act as a necessary check on the Secretariat and democratic participation in regional affairs is critical to maintaining unity and diversity of thought. The President of the General Assembly and other members of the government should do more to encourage GA participation and legislation-writing.
∞ Accessible and open roleplay is a significant way to keep current players coming back, which makes it among the most important priorities of the government. Accessibility to the roleplay entails limited map claims, understandable lore, and taking steps to maximize player enjoyment.
∞ Establishing a Roleplay Director and increasing roleplay 'regulation' would contribute to accessibility and allow for coordinating scenarios, updating key information about the canon, and setting ground rules wherever necessary.
∞ The current citizenship requirements are generally accessible, non-demanding, and maintain regional security as well.
∞ The World Assembly Delegate should be required to encourage further WA activity. If an interest prevails, there should be significant elements of the region that focus on WA resolution writing and discussion.
∞ The current WA resolution voting process allows for further participation in the democratic process and makes certain that the delegate truly represents the region in some fashion.
∞ The current WA delegate selection process is adequate for enhancing regional security and influence.
∞ The New West Indies should maintain its neutral international stance and not participate in military gameplay.
∞ The Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs should make a sustained effort to interact with other regions who have embassies with the New West Indies or could be potential suitors for such.
∞ An official embassy policy should be established that would specify which regions the region should diplomatically engage with in order to maintain clarity and professionalism.
∞ The NWI should not establish embassies with any regions that are considered, based on warranted suspicion, of being fascist or raider regions. The NWI should also not establish embassies with regions that are condemned by the WA Security Council.
Passed NWI General Assembly Resolutions
Authored World Assembly Proposals
As the delegate of the New West Indies to the World Assembly, Karteria asserts itself as a nation with significant regional influence. It is generally focused on utilitarian principles, i.e. making the world a better place by benefiting as many people as possible in the most significant way. It is also more heavily invested in the General Assembly rather than the Security Council. However, this document details its positions on both and the delegation's overall stance, which will *generally* determine the delegation's voting record and advocacy.
Political Decision-making: The delegation, while tending to support ideas based on aforementioned principles, encourages freedom of thought and supports compromise.
[OOC Reminder: while it is encouraged that you endorse the current delegate of the NWI (Karteria), it is not required, and you may or may not your own discretion]
[OOC Note: While the regional RP Karteria and World Assembly Karteria have similar political positions, they do not necessarily align on all issues. For example, the RP Karteria is heavily socialist, while in RL (and for the WA) I support some degree of Capitalism with more significant government intervention.]
