RRS Member State ideas scratchpad



Untitled Member State Amendment

Preamble: This is a proposal to revise Refugia Revised Statutes 2 and 3, combining them into a single entry. This amendment would change "Member State" from a predefined construct to a status which nations may qualify for and which provides those nations with privileges. It also details the processes by which nations may apply for an exemption from those Member State requirements, and by which the regional council may revoke the Member State status from any member. New and altered passages are in bold.

NOTES: exception vs. exemption | RRS 9 eligibility for exempt nations | "declined, rejected or impossible" - first two seem like the same thing? | Add clause prohibiting exempted states from holding WA with an alt; try to do so without breaking style guidelines regarding how to refer to players | Unrelated, but structurally the hanging clauses on RRS 5 and 10 bug me and I want to remember to bring them up sometime | Councillor of Culture description should refer to RRS 11 at present, but this is a good reminder that the below amendment would shift all the numbers | Prohibit councillors from endorsing election candidates?


2. Nations that maintain World Assembly status in the Region for no less than seven days will receive Member State status.

  1. A Nation will lose its status as a Member State if it elects to depart the Region, resigns from the World Assembly, its status is self-requested to be revoked, its status is revoked pursuant to RRS 2(e), or the nation is ejected.

  2. Nations that lose their status may apply to obtain it through the same process again unless it was revoked via RRS 2(e) or they are barred from the Region.

  3. Nations may alternatively apply for Member State status in conditions where admission to the World Assembly is declined, rejected, or impossible. Exemptions may also be requested for residents who participate in activities that make it impossible to maintain a constant World Assembly presence in the Region. Exemption nations must still have resided within the Region for a period of time not less than fourteen days and have received the unanimous approval from the Regional Council to provide the exemption.

  4. If a Member State with an exemption holds a Regional Council seat, they may continue to operate that office as normal when not maintaining World Assembly status in Refugia.

  5. Member State status, including that which has been provided under exemption conditions, may be revoked by a unanimous vote of the Regional Council in such circumstances where the application was made under fraudulent circumstances, for the purposes of exploitation of the Region, or due to such evidence of offence that maintenance of the status would be irresponsible.

9(a): Nations must hold Member State status to be eligible for candidacy.

2. Nations who are World Assembly members and have resided within the region for no less than seven days will receive Member State status.

  1. A Nation will lose its status as a Member State if it elects to depart the Region, resigns from the World Assembly, its status is self-requested to be revoked, its status is revoked pursuant to RRS 3(c), or the nation is ejected.

  2. Nations that lose their status may apply to obtain it through the same process again unless it was revoked via RRS 2(c) or they are barred from the Region.

  3. Member State status, including that which has been provided under exemption conditions, may be revoked by a unanimous vote of the Regional Council in such circumstances where the application was made under fraudulent circumstances, for the purposes of exploitation of the Region, or due to such evidence of offence that maintenance of the status would be irresponsible. (NOTE: litigate whether this is a good idea or whether it should remain in RRS 3.)
