[box][center][font=Times New Roman][anchor=Anchor1][size=150]What is the World Assembly?[/size][/anchor][/font][/center][hr]
[font=Times New Roman]The [url=]World Assembly[/url] (WA), is the governing body of the [url=]NationStates[/url] world. Membership in the World Assembly is voluntary and decisions passed by a majority of the body must be adhered to by all members. Players may only have one nation in the World Assembly at any given time and WA members can endorse the fellow WA members of their region. The WA member with the most endorsements from their fellow region-mates assumes the role of Delegate for that region and the weight of their vote on proposals counts for one plus all of their endorsements.[/font][/box]

[box][center][font=Times New Roman][anchor=Anchor2][size=150]What is this program?[/size][/anchor][/font][/center][hr]
[font=Times New Roman]The Union of Democratic States World Assembly Program ([/font][color=#337437][font=nationstates][/font][/color] [font=Times New Roman][b][color=#669769]UD[/color][color=#337437]SWAP[/color][/b]) is administered by the WA Delegate and World Assembly Advisory Board. The mission of the UDSWAP is to promote and reward World Assembly membership, endorsement of the Delegate, and endotarting (also known as cross-endorsing) among the WA members of the Union. 
In the Union, the lawful WA Delegate is appointed by the President of the Union and confirmed by the Senate. The WA Delegate votes on proposals according to the directive of the President who is responsible for setting and executing foreign affairs policy. Increasing endorsements on the delegate serves to safeguard the region, increase native influence, and advance the Union’s foreign affairs interests. [/font][/box]

[font=Times New Roman]Endotarting is the practice of endorsing all WA members that reside within a given region. Endotarting increases the influence of your nation within the Union, thus protecting the region of external threats. To endotart in the Union follow the following steps:
[list=1][*]Visit The North Pacific's endorsement queries page by clicking [url=]here[/url].
[*]Under “[b]Nation:[/b]” type your nation’s short name (ex: The Glorious Hypetrain, not The Server-Fighting Sysadmin of The Glorious Hypetrain).
[*]Under “[b]Region:[/b]” type or copy “[i]The Union of Democratic States [/i]”.
[*]Click “[b]Submit[/b]”.
[*]A list of nations you have yet to endorse and corresponding telegram links will appear.
[*]Hold the CTRL key on your keyboard and click on the names of the nations you want to endorse. Tabs with the nation names you click will be opened on your browser. Only open as many tabs as your computer can handle at any given time.
[*]Open these new tabs, scroll to the bottom and click “[/font][b][font=nationstates][/font][font=Times New Roman] Endorse[/b]”
[*]Repeat steps 6 and 7 for all nations on the endorsement list.[/list]
