SHOCKED at Ilosttopia's use of multiple different client states to spread it's influence across The Red Mountains that have since been dissolved and integrated,

NOTING Ilosttopia's blatant and agressive attempts of imperialism within the previously specified nation,

ADDING that Ilosttopia is not, in fact, a utopia as it name may suggest,

I hereby CONDEMN myself as judgement for my actions, as well as giving the Security Council something to do in this long period of no proposals.

A resolution to strike down Delegate-imposed barriers to free entry in a region.

Category: Liberation

Nominee (region): The Communist Bloc

Proposed by: Polska-Lietuvis

Liberate “The Communist Bloc” for democracy and freedom. We need democracy, they need democracy. They can still use communism, but they should let the people vote for their leaders


Maybe 2b? It's pretty ambiguous if "we" is referencing any actual delegation or nations in general

I don't know about that. "Current Pandemic" could refer to a lot of things. I would be more concerned about the "Mass Telegrams" clause.

Both bits are illegal:

Seconds ago: Sedgistan: Illegal — Rule 2b - real world reference "current pandemic", Rule 2a - referring to NationStates as a game: "mass telegrams containing positive messages to individuals" - telegrams are sent to nations not individuals.

FURTHER NOTING that Bhang Bhang Duc blocked my telegrams,

BELIEVING that due to this, Bhang Bhang Duc deserves to be banned from every single region;

STRESSING that Bhang Bhang Duc is sus and has a primarily vent-based public transportation system,

Herby urges all regions to eject and ban Bhang Bhang Duc and all known puppet nations.

On Interregional Recruitment
A resolution to express a position on international affairs and obligations.

Category: Declaration

Type: Declare

Proposed by: Khevo

The Security Council,

Aware of the recruitment, whether by telegram, regional message board, or other means, that occurs between regions,

Recognizing that such recruitment may lead to a decrease in the size of a target region,

However noting the position of Feeders and Sinkers as inherent locations for national foundation and the resultant consistent inflow of nations, a benefit not afforded to regions that are neither a Feeder nor a Sinker,

Concerned that recruitment between regions that are neither a Feeder nor a Sinker will harm the long-term growth of such regions,

Hereby discourages regional government-supported recruitment of nations from regions that are neither a Feeder nor a Sinker, except in the case of war between the recruiting and target region or a target region that has marked itself as recruiter friendly.

RMB is ruled legal in the "Expanded details" section of rule 2a:
Sedgistan wrote:Terms included within NationStates the game - eg. passwords, World Factbook Entries, founders, eject, Regional Message Board, 'black helicopters transporting nations between regions' - legal. However that does not apply to "OOC" pages or parts of pages, such as the News page, FAQs and Getting Help page.

Plenty of RL examples of nations using telegrams to communicate with each other. Consider, e.g., the Zimmermann Telegram.

Amendments To Resolutions
A resolution to express a position on international affairs and obligations.

Category: Declaration

Type: Declare

Proposed by: Nondenominational Christian Commonwealth

Recognising that Resolutions in both the General Assembly have been repealed and Replaced with different Resolutions to fix certain problems with the 1st Resolution.

Realising that a "Repeal" Resolution takes time to write, be deemed legal, reach quorum, (occasionally wait to have a vote), and have a vote on the floor of the General Assembly or the Security Council.

Also Recongising that the process stated in the previous sentence also applies to the Resolution proposed as a replacement.

Realizing that much-needed time would be saved if the World Assembly offered amendments to current resolutions.

Declaring that the Members of the World Assembly are calling upon the World Assembly Process be amended to allow amendments to existing Resolutions.

Approvals: 1 (Tinhampton)

Looks like a 3(b) violation to me.

Is it really legal for Declarations to say that something "shall" be done, thereby (if they are passed) apparently placing a requirement on the WA's members (even OOC, not just IC) to perform those actions, rather than merely that it "should" be done?
