[SUBMITTED] Commend Pencil Sharpeners 2

Postby Minskiev » Mon Jul 12, 2021 11:45 am

Hello. My main concern is the section on their roles in TSP since I'm not too in the know on TSP politics. I just generalized it. Feedback would be highly appreciated.

The Security Council,

Aware of the nation of Pencil Sharpeners 2 (PS2) and its many satellite states for their impressive domestic characteristics, topping the charts on many different World Assembly Census metrics,

Believing PS2 and its satellites to be worthy of praise from the World Assembly, from their laudable regional involvement to their remarkably benevolent policy and legislation,

Jealous of the efficiency of the economy of PS2 and the high standard of living enjoyed by its residents of nearly a million Pencil Shavings,

Observing the economic influence PS2 has over the South Pacific due to PS2's policies of subsidizing industry and advancing the sciences, to the point where PS2 wields a highly-advanced space program and is the 17th-most subsidizing nation in the world,

Lauding PS2’s government for expanding their influence beyond their immediate nation, into a vast system of satellite states who have accomplished many goals, ultimately showcasing the high ability of their leaders to create goodwill towards people around the world, accomplishing many incredible feats, such as:
  1. The development of extensive domestic welfare programs (3rd best) in Thalasse, alongside high levels of inclusiveness (5th most) rivaled by only a select few nations, on top of a combination of incredibly well-developed and efficient healthcare system (6th best) and foreign aid programs (11th best), ensuring the health of citizens domestic and abroad by one of the most honest governments (7th most) in the world,
  2. Heliosphere’s investments in the advancement of industry, ultimately allowing themselves to develop the world’s best public education and most expansive information technology sector, combining to form an educated, well-rounded, and cheese-loving (3rd most) population,
  3. The food-oriented Aqualagoon’s innovations in the area of food production, including being the world’s largest agricultural producer, as well as the world’s largest trout fisher, feeding not only all residents but also the less-fortunate outside the nation,
  4. The assurance of the safety of Xynlandia’s people, which has remarkably good defense forces (6th best) and the best law enforcement in the world, allowing the nation to reduce violent crime to nearly nonexistent levels and helping nations worldwide have a goal to strive towards in this regard,
  5. The resources provided by Askatopia, having some of the most prominent resource-gathering industries in the world, including the nearly-unrivaled mining industry (2nd largest) of the nation, as well as the largest timber industry in the world, coupled with the world’s largest basket-weaving industry, highlighting the skill and efficiency of the nation to allow the easier collection of resources, and supplying them internationally,
Acclaiming the many other notable characteristics present in many other nations under PS2's control, ranging from stunning and sparkling weather to pizza so artisanally crafted that it nearly breaks the censuses, ultimately demonstrating the dedication that these nations undergo, to the extent that not all can be personally named in a singular resolution,

Celebrating PS2's tenure as Minister of Regional Affairs and Local Councillor of the South Pacific, where they spurred regional democratic involvement in the government, as well as being a member of the Council on Regional Security, helping to guard their home region against outside threats,

Noting PS2's list of most-accomplished nations where they bring to light 10 nations for their very impressive domestic policies and feats, with a total of 42 world-1sts across the nations and their puppets,

Convinced that PS2's many feats across many areas and guidance to other nations, giving them tips on how to improve their nation, have made a positive change in the world,

Hereby commends Pencil Sharpeners 2.


Big thanks to Morover.

Certainly an interesting one, and while I’m not familiar with the nominee, I will let you anticipate this one critique from others: doesn’t focus enough on the nominee itself nor what makes them, in particular, so commendable. More detail about government stuff they did, any WA work or international issues brought to the community’s attention (:P), would go a long way. Well-written from a grammar/English-language perspective though.

Thank you. I don't know too much about the things you listed that they did, unfortunately. I'll look into that more, since I recognize that that's my weak spot.

Whilst I do not know the nation, I support this commendation. However, the 'characteristics' (i.e badges) are not really noteworthy (apart from those like WA endorsements), since it is given not by skill but by what option you take on an issue.

But I still voice my full support. Well done.

I disagree. It can take years to become so highly ranked in certain stats, all while balancing your other ones. WA endos take zero effort from you to attain until a certain point. Then they take only minimal effort.

However, thank you.

One thing that I think could make a PS2 Commendation more palatable for some of the Issues-skeptics than past resolutions is that PS2 is actually quite vocal in advocating for issue answering, providing help and assistance to new issue answerers, and recognizing the contributions of others who engage in issue answering. I remembered specifically their top issue players in NS list and their public explanation of how they structure their issue answering spreadsheet/options, although there may well be other examples. I think it would be good to see things like that emphasized in here.

I look forward to seeing more development of this draft!

Thank you! I remember seeing they had a top issues player list, and I also remembered they had a sneak peek post of their issue spreadsheet, yes. However, I'm not too sure how to incorporate threads into a draft, but I'll try my best. Finally, as a TSPer I'd highly appreciate any pointers for how I could expand upon their TSP work.

An interesting nominee with some interesting accomplishments. I'll hold off judgements on their commendability for now and see how the draft progresses.

I will oppose any NS stats-based commendation/condemnation, including this one. Opposed.

Maybe, but I'm pretty confident. I guess this is my "this has been submitted" post.
