Statement on Security Council resolution "Commend Duxburian Union"
A resolution to recognize outstanding contribution by a nation or region.
The Security Council,
Acknowledging that while the prototypical candidate for a commendation is well-known internationally, despite being of less renown, the nation Duxburian Union is worthy of acclaim, having made immense contributions to both their own region, and to the international community;
Lauding the significant role that Duxburian Union played in refounding their founderless home region European Union, freeing its 100-nation population from the fear of raid and destruction by enemy forces;
Noting Duxburian Unionís ongoing dedication to protecting European Union from external threats, including raiders and other enemy forces, through frequent region-wide inspections to identify enemy nations, and by training inhabitants in ways to identify such nations;
Highlighting the various positions that civil servants of the nation Duxburian Union have held within the government of the European Union, since the nation's inception in 2006:
Chief Justice on the European Court of Justice for 4 months between 2011 and 2012, 4 months in 2013, 4 months in 2015, and 4 months between 2016 and 2017. The civil servants of Duxburian Union that served in this capacity are seen as some of the most prolific judges in European Union history.
Speaker of the European Council for a total of 36 months, overseeing the largest volume of legislation in European Union history, as well as compiling the most comprehensive record of council proceedings at the time.
Commissioner of Internal Affairs for 7 consecutive months in 2012 as well as 4 months between 2013 and 2014. In this capacity the civil servants of Duxburian Union were able to keep the population of nations in European Union at a stable level.
Foreign Affairs Commissioner for 4 months between 2016 and 2017, as well as 16 months between 2018 and 2019. In this capacity the civil servants of Duxburian Union advocated for and pursued a more open foreign affairs platform for the region.
Cognizant of the notable achievements of the Duxburian Union by virtue of Vincent Drake, a proxy nation and contributor to the aforementioned regional refounding, and not to be confused with the former European Union official of the same name;
Appreciating the efforts of the technical engineers of Vincent Drake in the development of defender tools, specifically the advanced piece of defender tech codenamed Breeze++ that allows defender forces to react more quickly to raider threats;
Celebrating the many top-level positions held by Vincent Drake within the Defender region The Order of The Grey Wardens, including:
Chamberlain, whose duty it is to keep and update records of missions undertaken by Warden operative nations.
Constable, whose duty it is to lead defender forces into battle against raider forces as well as to train new defender nations.
First Warden, a critical command position, whose duty it is to lead the region to victory.
Emphasizing their participation in actions against raider forces throughout NationStates, numbering a staggering 6,556 operations, and including 3,822 defenses, 374 liberations, and 2,076 detags to clean up raider propaganda. Notable among these:
The liberations of The Monarchist Entente, St Abbadon, Souls, Boston, Belgium, Japan, Eireann, Philippines, and Anontia when all faced occupations of over 30 raider nations.
One of the leading roles in the refounding of Greece, which had lived under the despotic rule of Yauna for almost 10 years before being freed. Greece now sits as a peaceful and open region to all, without the fear of regular purges undertaken by the disgraced founder nation.
Believing that all of these actions for the betterment of the international community make Duxburian Union more than worthy of recognition by this Assembly;
Hereby commends Duxburian Union.
The following statement has been issued to the Security council by Latidonia:
Recognizing the broad and exceptional achievements of the Duxburian Union and it's auxiliary, Vincent Drake, as well as the laudable nature of the values of internationalism, co-operation and democracy that the nation's home region, the European Union, epitomizes, and which Duxburian Union has significantly contributed to, and which are universally endorsed by all civilised nations and highlighted and emphasised in the Constitution of Latidonia;
Noting the remarkable, close to unanimous, consensus that the forum of World Assembly members holds in supporting this commendation;
Applauding the Duxburian Union's work and contributions to the peace, harmony and co-existence of the nations of the World;
Latidonia votes FOR this commendation, and advocates that members of the World Assembly vote so as well.
