[PASSED] Commend Ananke II

Postby Sedgistan » Sun Oct 17, 2010 11:55 am

Image Commend Ananke II
A resolution to recognize outstanding contribution by a nation or region.

Category: Commendation | Nominee: Ananke II | Proposed by: Sedgistan


Description: The Security Council,

Recognising that Ananke II is more commonly referred to just as "Ananke",

Recalling that, in 2003, Ananke helped establish the North Pacific Army, a defender military based in the region The North Pacific and which was one of the most active and influential militaries based in one of the Pacifics,

Aware that the Alliance Defense Network (ADN) was the largest multi-regional alliance in NationStates history, and that Ananke rose to the leading position of Secretary of State within it,

Believing that, through holding this position within the ADN, Ananke assisted with the protection of numerous regions from the threat of invasion,

Applauding Ananke's role as one of the three organisers of the liberation of The North Pacific in 2004, the largest successful liberation in NationStates history, which freed the region from the tyranny of the New Pacific Order, a dictatorial regime based out of The Pacific,

Praising Ananke's continued work as a defender - first in the North Pacific Army, then in the ADN, the GLA, and, more recently, in the 10000 Islands Treaty Organisation (TITO) - which has helped to keep hundreds of regions free to rule themselves without interference from hostile foreign forces, and recognising that this is a cause that aligns with the Security Council's aim of spreading interregional peace,

Observing Ananke's tireless work within 10000 Islands, helping to turn it into one of the largest and most influential regions in NationStates through extensive recruiting efforts and the welcoming of every new nation that joins the region, and noting that this work has been a benefit shared by the wider NationStates community, as it leads to an increase in the number of nations actively engaged with their peers,

Recognising Ananke's recently completed stint as delegate of 10000 Islands, during which Ananke became the highest-endorsed delegate in several years and assisted in engaging the 10000 Islands community with the World Assembly,

Acknowledging that, as delegate of 10000 Islands, Ananke was also responsible for leading the foreign affairs mission of the region, helping to drastically increase its foreign affairs involvement, and improving diplomatic relations between 10000 Islands and other regions,

Perceiving that Ananke's work as a defender that spreads interregional peace, and as a delegate and diplomat for 10000 Islands that spreads goodwill, aligns perfectly with the Security Council's aims,

Concluding that few nations have made such a significant and beneficial contribution to NationStates as Ananke has and that this contribution should therefore be recognised through a World Assembly commendation,

Hereby Commends Ananke II.


This proposal was drafted on The Security Council's forums.

EDIT: I'm not listing any co-authors, but there's a few people I want to thank for their help with the resolution:
  • A Mean Old Man and Unibot helped with the drafting, and thanks to AMON, I know know what a dangling modifier is.
  • Guy of 10000 Islands supplied details of Ananke's work within the region.
  • Finally, Ananke herself answered all the questions I had, to help ensure there were no factual inaccuracies.

EDIT 2: Proposal is now submitted.

Worth a shot, honoured ambassador. The delegacy of Ananke II has been pretty valuable to the WA.

Don't quote me on this, but I don't think the NPO exactly had a democratic reputation in mind when they committed their actions.

Although the events occurred before my time, I would like to raise the point that the tyranny overthrown as a result of the Puppetmaster attack was that of Great Bight. I am unaware of any IC (or OOC, for that matter) admissions of Great Bight acting either in the name of or as an agent of the NPO, and I believe that referencing Ananke II's role in overthrowing Great Bight's dictatorial regime would be more factual and indicative of a neutral POV than the current wording.

Other than that, I support the initiative.

In the interest of full disclosure (for those who aren't aware - could be most of you), I have been a member of The Pacific region and its government since 2005.

As far as I know it has been publicly admitted that Great Bight was an NPO agent (Mammothistan). That said, when you invade another sovereign feeder (as TNP did to the Pacific under Franco, many times) you get what you deserve - all's fair in war and that includes couping your enemy.

Though it doesn't really matter anymore, I was able to find an OOC admission that Great Bight was Mammothistan, by the man himself, made 4 years after the fact. Prior to that, I couldn't find any kind of basis for allegations (though obviously the allegations proved true), and I think that the general conclusion of Mammo's involvement that was reached by most of the observers/participants was due more to it being an outcome that they were willing to accept moreso than any evidence presented by those making the accusations. Of course, then there is another step from Great Bight being the operation of an NPO senator to it being an NPO operation.

So I think the NPO clause, in the absence of any available IC evidence that I've ever seen, is a bit funny. Oh well, it's not the end of the world.
