Current Legislation


This section, titled "Current Legislation", is made up of all legislation that has been passed by the Civil Council or any of its predecessors. You can find older legislation, from the beginning of the Alliance, as well as much more recent legislation. Some legislation may have antiquated language, and it is in the process of being updated to comply with all current laws and legislation.

Raiders Etiquette Act - CC002


REAFFIRMING our strong commitment to the voicing, service, and independence of each member region of the alliance, and recalling the importance of the principles of fellowship.

REMINDING the priority of the alliance—to discuss, giving a say to all on World Assembly resolutions.

RECOGNIZING, stressing, noticing that any form of negative military action between alliance members will likely disrupt the alliance—in a way that many would be turned away from the discussion of resolutions to debate the issue of such relations, which are certainly a cause for complaint.

OBSERVING how there are an abundance of defender and neutral regions in the alliance who wish to be treated with civility in the alliance, and by joining the alliance.

THEREBY, disallowing member regions to raid and invade other member regions, possibly in times of heated disagreement.

Compensating, that both parties solve the conflict and issues at hand peacefully.

Alliance Region Exit and Removal Act - CC003


The need to establish a procedure for regions to exit properly if the need come to leave the Alliance or for the Alliance to have a procedure to remove an alliance region if needed.

If an Alliance region feels the need to leave the Alliance the region’s voting member will need to present the resignation in writing to the Founder of the Alliance and President. This will be presented to the Alliance Cabinet for official acceptance of the resignation of that region from the URA.

If an Alliance region’s voting member leaves the discord without warning or replacement. The region has Seven days to replace that member or face a removal vote from the Alliance. A removal vote will need ¾ majority to pass. The Region in question does not get to vote but can defend their actions and plead their case during the discussion period. To remove an Alliance region for leaving the discord, or other infractions and breaches of Alliance terms such as having no Delegate for their region in the World Assembly.

If a voting member needs a leave of absence they can let the President or Founder know of this and ask there Region to find a temporary replacement till the leave of absence is over.

This resolution allows for the Governing Council to add other infractions and penalties as they see fit.

Passed by Governing Council 12/4/2019

The Hung Vote Procedure Act - CC004


RECALLING the delayed and prolonged voting of the Tulenian League’s forceful exit from the United Regions Alliance.

OBSERVING how disruptive a prolonged vote may be, therefore requesting that…

  1. Should the vote of a resolution not reach the ¾ threshold [amongst all active voting members*] needed to pass [otherwise known as a ‘hung vote’] that the remaining undecided voting members be contacted personally through Discord or telegram on NationStates.

  2. *That the term ‘active voting member’ should be designated to a region whose voting member is on the United Regions Alliance’s Discord server.

  3. That there be allowed discussion and debate for another resolution, should thirty six hours have passed since the opening of the first resolution.

  4. Should there be inactive voting members, they are to be excluded from the total number of votes.

  5. Also clarifying that the vote on any resolution can only go on for one hundred and twenty hours before it must be shelved so there may be no further disruption.

  6. Giving members the choice to have another vote. The person who brought up the resolution may call for another vote. Should ½ of the Civil Council choose not have another vote, the resolution is to be shelved permanently. Each vote should be cast as one, and not as with consideration to the World Assembly Voter Act of 2019.

Head of Inter-regional Roleplays Act - CC005


NOTING the interest from some member regions to have an active inter-regional role play.

UNDERSTANDING that for this to happen we need someone that will be willing to gauge interest and start an organization of this.

ALSO NOTING the Inter-regional role play is something to keep members of the Alliance active on the discord.

This act will create the URA Head of Inter-regional role plays. The job is to be the organizer of the Inter-regional role plays that we are going to be doing on the discord server.

Job roles to be fulfilled by Head of Role plays:

  1. Recruit and find interested nations in the Alliance member regions interested in participating.

  2. Organization of any Maps, pre-event planning and all aspects of the role play.

  3. Maintaining a quality Role-play event monthly if possible.

  4. Ability to appoint an assistant if needed in helping with this role.

This will be an elected position that will be elected for a 6 month term. There is no term limit on this position.

Continuing the goal to make the Alliance discord a inter-regional hub and meeting place between regions.

Clarification of Abstentation Act - CC006


OBSERVING how abstentions in a resolution can form a majority and overwhelm the vote and thus a fair decision can not be made.

NOTICING how unfair it would be if the votes of abstentions are cast out and that as little as a single aye, or nay vote in an aye-nay total can decide the passage or failing of a resolution.

ALSO NOTICING how abstentions may indicate that a voting member isn’t fully for, or against the resolution.

Thus, establishing the fact that an abstention represents the voting member’s unwillingness to pass or fail the current resolution, but to establish a compromise and a redraft through more thorough discussion at a later time. Thus, renaming the vote to abstain, the vote to compromise. Now, voters will have four options to vote—aye, nay, compromise, and abstain.

Also establishing those voting members who wish to completely abstain—with no expression and desire of voting on the resolution—abstain.

Present Vote Counting Act - CC008


NOTING that voting members of the Civil Council are busy and unable to vote at times.

Realizing that Civil Council business needs to keep a forward motion, and continue even in the absence of some voting members.

HEREBY change the current Civil Council voting procedure to count only votes cast by present voting members.

When current members voting is at 60 percent of all alliance votes if the current votes cast meet the 3/4 majority needed for passage at the end of voting time. Then the vote will be considered passed.

In the votes where 50 percent majority is needed, Current policy for these votes will continue.

If the owner of a World Assembly Nation both declares a specific region in the alliance as their home base for the alliance and verifies that they have a nation in that region, that World Assembly Nation will be considered to be a member of that region regardless of wherever that nation actually is.

Past/Repealed Legislation


This section is dedicated to all legislation that was at one point enacted within the Alliance. This includes the Articles of Formation, the original founding document of this organization that was replaced upon the ratification of our Constitution. Nothing about these laws has been changed since they were repealed, including their numbering system.

URA Articles of Formation (Replaced by the Constitution)


This document is to lay out the formation of the United Regions Alliance. This hereby forms the Alliance of regions so that together region’s herein will have a stronger voice in the World Assembly.

Purpose: The formation of this Alliance is meant to further the agenda of small and medium size regions that currently do not have a large voice in matters of proposing and passage of World Assembly resolutions. This Alliance will give that to these regions.

Members: To become a member of the Alliance the regions founder or body of government must pass this document and present to the founder of the alliance ( Ellenburg ) to gain admittance to the alliance. Regions must maintain an active World Assembly delegate to become and continue as a member of this alliance.

Responsibilities of member regions: Each regions World Assembly Delegate must agree to vote in the World Assembly based on the final vote of this alliance. This will further the cause of giving the regions in the alliance a larger voting Bloc in the World Assembly. Each member region must join the [url=https://discord.gg/BExPgPF] URA Discord server. Regions can send over either there Delegate of the region or an ambassador. This person will get the vote for the region in all votes cast within on either votes that are current in the World Assembly or votes on proposed resolutions proposed by member regions.

(Each Region will get a certain number of votes based on the World Assembly Nation Voter act)

Agenda items for voting: All member regions have the right to cast a vote for each Resolution that is up for current vote in the World Assembly. Once all the votes are tallied a final recommendation on how the alliance will vote will be revealed.
All member regions have the right to propose resolutions for consideration by the Alliance if passed by the Alliance the proposal can then be submitted to the World Assembly to start the process of getting voted on by the full World Assembly. If a proposed resolution is passed by the Alliance all regions in the Alliance will endorse the proposed resolution to help it get to full vote.

Governing Council : Once the Alliance gets to 20 regions, a Governing Council will be elected with the exception of the Founder of the Alliance. The roles of the Governing Council will be as follow.

Alliance Founder : Permanent position on the governing board. If the Founder chooses to step down, he can appoint a new Founder to take his spot on the Governing Council.

President : The president of the alliance will be elected every 6 months. There is a term limit of 2 elected terms for this position. The president of the Alliance will review proposed resolutions proposed by member regions and bring them up for a vote on the floor of the alliance for vote. They along with the founder will be tasked with verifying final vote count.

Vice President : Vice president will be elected every 6 months. A term limit of 2 elected terms for this position. The Vice President will serve as assistant to the president and founder. He would fill in for the president in the event of absence. The president can also delegate tasks to the Vice President as they see fit.

Head of Recruitment : This position will be created so that we are actively attempting to add new Member regions to the Alliance. This position will be elected by the members of the alliance for a term of 6 months. This position has a term limit of 2 terms.

Head of Security : This position will be elected every year. The Head of Security will have the duty of overseeing the URA Discord Server and ensuring compliance by voting members of the URA.

Enforcer : Similar to the Head of Security the Enforcer has the same duties and authority however the elections for Enforcer happen at the opposite time of the year when the Head of Security is elected.

Election Voting : In the election each voting member's representative vote will count as one vote for the person they would like to see in the said position.

By-Elections : In the event a government official steps down and or is inactive for over one month then a snap election will be held to replace said official. If officials want to avoid a snap election and must step down for a short period of time then they may choose an acting official to act on there behalf until there return and or the end of there term.

This article of Formation can be altered via vote of the member regions with a ¾ majority vote. Addendums and additional resolutions to this can be added.

Protocal for Inactivity of Officials Act - GC0006


REAFFIRMING our strong commitment to the service of each member region of the alliance, and recalling the importance of the principles of responsibility.

REMINDING that elevated positions, held by governing officials, ought to be taken seriously, that their service attributes to the well-being of the alliance and the smooth flow of its work—the debating of resolutions of the World Assembly and of the alliance, and the acceptance of regions.

CALLING for amends to the alliance’s article of formation, that:

  1. If the President and the Vice-President should be away for seven days [rather than the current thirty days] without a valid reason given in advance, that they be immediately be removed from office.

  2. If it should be the Vice-President who is away for seven days [rather than the current thirty days] without a valid reason…

  3. [Noticing how there is no line of succession…] there is to be called upon by an Enforcer: a snap-election.

  4. If an Enforcer is not active for at least once in two full weeks without any valid reason given in advance, that Enforcer is to be removed from duty.

    Viewing that enforcers ought to bring peace, ensure peace to member regions at all times, and be prepared for a potential uncivil outbreak in the alliance.

    Noticing how an Enforcer would be not much of use if their work [mentioned in the previous point] can not be fulfilled.

  5. [For the rest of the positions…] if the official is not back within fourteen days, a snap election is to be called immediately.

If the official is sorely needed, the matter would, and should be handed over to the President, or Vice-President, who, if too, is also inactive for [already] a period of time [and for another twenty-four hours], then the matter is to be handed over to other officials, if not, the governing council.

Hoping, expecting that these amends would give better service to member regions, ensuring that the rules are being abided by, that their discussions are, with civility, being peacefully held, and that there is a chance for more to join.

[Clarifying point 4 in Resolution 5…] should the President and Vice-President be absent when sorely needed in the discussion of certain matters, the matter is to be handed over to the proper, respective councils* and their members.

*The Governing Council debates on World Assembly resolutions and proposals.

*[Proposing that the Liberation Consortium be renamed the Liberation Council…] focuses on liberating member regions from raiders and invaders.

*The Security Council focuses on the keeping of peace and the abode by law of member regions.

*The Recruiter’s Council focuses on the recruitment and the consideration of regions to join the alliance.

*The Electoral Council focuses on organising elections and debates, counting the votes and deciding the winner of the election.

Understanding that the council gives out laws that every member region in the alliance must abide by, every resolution proposed under any one of the respective councils will be labeled as a Governing Council resolution.

Hoping, expecting that the councils would now be able to discuss their own list of agendas respective to their work without interfering with the Governing Council.

Basic Aid to Fractured Region Members - CC001


RECALLING previous discussions on the topic—opinions from the alliance’s Founder, and statements of my own.

REAFFIRMING our strong commitment to the protection of the independence of each member nation of the alliance, and recalling the importance of the principles of fellowship.

OBSERVING how the World Assembly nations may not endorse the unelected government's decisions, which may result in the withdrawal from the United Regions Alliance.

STRESSING the need to give military support to a member region when being raided and invaded.

EMPHASIZING that a coup is recognized as a foreign party. If a founder of the region decided to change the government, whether it may be endorsed [by the regional population] or not, the United Regions Alliance has no say in the situation.

Therefore, resulting in the establishment of the Liberation Consortium, with the focus to liberate regions from their invaders. Noticing how some regions may be disinterested in supporting the cause, thus making the consortium an option for membership. The head of the consortium will be appointed by the President, at each term.
