Unfortunately stupidity and lack of reading skills aren't bootable offenses. Honestly I don't have a problem with the stupid ones, though I think there should be some recourse for delegates who just blindly approve them. WA military alone has 7 delegates who think it's a legal and good proposal... and if you watch for patterns you'll see a lot of repeat offenders.

It seems that there are always a handful of delegates who will approve anything, just to be approving something.

No, it says you can't make them and you can't use them, it never once says you can't possess them.

Ok, moving on....

Zero Poverty Act

A resolution to reduce income inequality and increase basic welfare.


Category: Social Justice
Strength: Strong
Proposed by: Foude

Description: This resolution consists in a plan that nations will have to develop and present every 3 years in the the World Assembly. The plan will have to specify how that nation will cut poverty by 10% in those 3 years. Then when the goal is met, the nation will have to cut poverty by 10% in the next 3 years until poverty is down to 0%. If a nation doesn't achieve the goal of 0 poverty, the nation will have to pay a fine of 10,000 dollars per resident that is under poverty. Then the World Assembly is responsible of giving those 10,000 dollars to every citizen in poverty.


Wait. Wut? This feels like something that is illegal like the "Peas Allowence" thing in the rules.

The World Improval Act

A resolution to increase the quality of the world's environment, at the expense of industry.


Category: Environmental
Industry Affected: Automobile Manufacturing
Proposed by: Justorica

Description: The World Assembly,

NOTES that many of the nations in the world, over half of their population is made up of obese people,

ALSO NOTING that the emissions given up by automobiles effect the environment, killing trees, and in the future, killing people by lack of oxygen,

PROPOSES that automobiles be banned or that automobile be sold only to those with a good reason, which would "kill three birds with one stone." This proposal would stop people from being overweight as they would have to ride a bike scooter, skateboard, etc. or walk to where they are going. It would also stop global warming and plants dying by reducing emissions, Thus, solving three of the biggest problems in the world today.

The legalization of weed will not only boost economies, but it will aslo bring down the crime rates very much, and make everyone happy! So let me just say one more thing: "JUST LEGALIZE IT!"

Meta-gaming and uses the word "weed" instead of marijuana, which I find inappropriate.

Well, if it's trying to effect the "real world" then that is a major violation. I think both of the proposals ( they are both exactly the same and by the same person ) should be removed. They are a waste of time.

This is also a redundant proposal as the resolution Right to Emigration does the same thing.

Except All Businesses is the catch all for any environmental proposal that doesn't fit into the other categories and since this doesn't fit into any of the others it has to be filed under All Businesses.

No it doesn't, emigration is the right to leave a country, immigration is the right to enter a country.

Oh, I do realise that for want of a "better" solution it has to be filed under that heading, but the fact remains that its text is a piss-poor fit to that heading's effective strength...

The Clean Car Act
A resolution to increase the quality of the world's environment, at the expense of industry.

Category: Environmental
Industry Affected: Automobile Manufacturing
Proposed by: Macoksla

Description: The emission rates for hydrocarbons (HC), carbon monoxide (CO), and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) shown in the following tables are from Macoksla Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) highway vehicle emission factor models. They assume an average, properly maintained vehicle on the road in May 2009, operating on typical gasoline on a warm summer day (72-96 degrees F). Emissions may be higher in very hot (especially HC) or very cold (especially CO) weather.

The calculations for Total Annual Pollution Emitted and Fuel Consumed are based on an average annual passenger car mileage of 12,500 miles and an average annual light truck mileage of 14,000 miles. Fuel consumption is based on fleetwide average in-use fuel economy of 21.5 miles per gallon (mpg) for passenger cars and 17.2 mpg for light trucks.

Interesting Facts about Green Cars

•25 percent: The percentage increase in MPG you can create by keeping up on your cars’ maintenance by doing things like: regular oil changes, air-filter changes, and spark plug replacements.

•4 tons: The amount of carbon released into the atmosphere when producing a single car, in addition to 700 pounds of other pollutants.

•2 million gallons: The amount of biodiesel produced in the Macoksla in the year 2000; in 2005 it produced around 75 million gallons. In September of 2006, sixty-five companies reported having plants currently under construction and thirteen more are planning expansions.

•22.1 MPG: The peak fuel economy of the average passenger car, which was reached in 1987. The EPA estimates that 2006 average fuel economy, despite two decades of improvements in automobile technology, is 21 mpg.

•13 MPG: The peak fuel economy of the average passenger car, which was reached in 1987. The EPA estimates that 2006 average fuel economy, despite two decades of improvements in automobile technology, is 21 mpg.

•159,000: The number of trips to the emergency room attributed to high smog pollution, in addition to 53,000 hospital admissions and 6 million asthma attacks.

•$4,826 to $9,685: The estimated average yearly cost of driving a single-occupant car. In comparison, the average cost of a year’s worth of public transportation is between $200 and $2000.

So we propose that all cars with a MTG(Miles to the Gallon)rating of less than 80 miles be banned from the road.
