Should I Propose Resolution Related to COVID-19?

Postby Orangeforce » Fri Jul 31, 2020 10:47 pm

I was honestly wondering how the heck this could be. I want to make a proposal that has people required to have a supply of masks and gloves in their homes due to coronavirus. The problem is, I dont know if it is legal or not I won't make people forced into lockdowns or mandatory social distancing or whatever. But I just want nations to be prepared. Do you think the WA will allow preperations for a real-world virus that has us locked in real life? Or will they say no b/c COVID-19 doesnt exist in NS. (It does in RPs!) Share your opinion below! Thanks! -Orangeforce

COVID-19 doesn't necessarily exist in NS, but more importantly, is a clear real life reference rule violation. That said, consider changing your focus to all respiratory diseases or something more generalised than the specific ongoing world pandemic.

I would not recommend trying something this specific. A direct reference to COVID would be illegal as Imperium Anglorum explained, and the scope you propose seems very narrow. I would suggest trawling through the passed resolutions to see if there's something akin to a pandemic preparedness plan, and if there isn't, work at it from that angle.

Coronavirus related. This too. And this. These are all jokes. This isn't. This is, again, but it's also the last one.

EPARC stands for Epidemic and Pandemic Alert and Response Centre. It is a committee that generally handles situations involving large-scale disease. The committee is used in Epidemic Response Act, Infectious Disease Control, Rights of the Quarantined and Proper Hygiene for Medical Instruments. Any legislation you propose will have to avoid contradicting or substantially duplicating these four pieces of law, and possibly others.
A representative democracy with a parliament of 535 seats
Kenmoria is Laissez-Faire on economy but centre-left on social issues
Located in Europe and border France to the right and Spain below
NS stats and policies are not canon, use the factbooks
Not in the WA despite coincidentally following nearly all resolutions
This is due to a problem with how the WA contradicts democracy
However we do have a WA mission and often participate in drafting
Current ambassador: James Lewitt

For more information, read the factbooks here.
