Allied Nations General Assembly (BW Politics Thread)

The Allied Nations is a useless and powerless international organization for galactic cooperation in the name of warfare. The General Assembly is the useless and powerless arm of the AN since it's the one organ that doesn't actually have any powers, so it mainly serves as a discussion forum that can occasionally vote on useless and powerless resolutions. Every nation in the BrikVerse has a right to speak at the AN General Assembly, meaning every nation has the option and can feel free to ignore it if they want. Speaking at or participating in the ANGA does not necessarily constitute an endorsement of the AN or what it stands for.

Basically this is the general discussion thread for in-universe BrikWars politics, and since a lot of people have complained about the proliferation and excess of BW politics in the forums, I guess it'd make them happier to contain it to one thread. Since the ANGA is the most encompassing international body, it makes sense as an in-universe abstraction of such a thing.

More background on the AN:
-There's an AN Security Council, a 15-nation council consisting of the five Veto Powers and ten other rotating countries. They have actual power to impose economic sanctions, send in peacekeepers, and deploy the feared and infamous AN PAX Corps. In practice the Veto Powers kill all the resolutions so this body actually ends up being harmless and powerless.
-There's an Allied Criminal Court, which can try criminals and anoraks who violate minifig rights or international law. Since the countries have to voluntarily give up their defendants to the ACC, however, almost nobody actually gets put on trial.
-There's an AN Minifig Rights Council filled with slavers and genociders like the Inquistadores, Assyria, Trattoria, and the Space Nazis. Nothing needs to be said about how useless this body is.
-The current AN Secretary-General is Mobfather Scratch of the Police State of Venice, with his Under-Secretaries-General being Senator Rand Paul of the USA and Comrade JAM of the Army of JAM. The Secretariat is about as useless as the rest of the AN, but can issue statements on behalf of the ANSG, and gets a nice glass office building on planet New York.

OOC Note:
Spoiler: show
I've changed the tone of the AN to be more inclusive and less oppressive on people's individual kanons now that the overpurge has given me a chance to remake this thread anew. If they want to ignore it, that's fine, but the flip side is that everyone has the option to participate in it. I've also sort of repurposed it as an in-universe abstraction of "general politics discussion".

Bavaria institutes a referendum that Polonia be split into several parts and given to every other member of the AN.

The ASE motions to establish a committee to investigate whether or not religions aside from Trianglism have any place in the galaxy, and if not, what should be done with the infidels.

Objection!

Cthulicism is a much better religion capable of creating giant, horrifying monsters and powerful weapons.

You can propose this as a recommendation, however technically the AN has no legal authority to carry this out without Polonia's permission. Also because anyone who attempted to carry it out would receive a severe ass-kicking from Polonia.

Sounds like the perfect Allied Nations General Executive Resolution. Nations move to execute the resolution, Polonia kicks everybody's asses, war breaks out everywhere, AN central mission to increase violence and warfare: successful.

I'd support that motion to split polonia. Good plumbers and plasterers are awfully hard to come by these days, so we could always use more. War is just a bonus.

So, for the permanent council I'm thinking the Immortal Empire, Assaryan Star Empire, Scythian Empire, Medivo, and Trattoria, just to drive home how broken of a governing body this is.

===Administrivia post===

The 5 permanent Veto Powers on the Allied Nations Security Council are the United Systems Alliance, the Union of Soviet Socialist Space Republiks, the Britannian League, the Assyrian Star Empire, and the Immortal Empire.

There's 10 other members on the Security Council (these countries rotate out every two years), but they're irrelevant because anything they bring up will be vetoed down by the Veto Powers. Even if there's absolutely nothing controversial in the Security Council resolution, like condemning the Space Nazis or declaring October to be International Beer Month, the USA will probably veto it for "violating national sovereignty and FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEDOM".

Basically these countries' representatives are just seat-fillers to make the Security Council look international and inclusive, kind of like all the random Jedi on the Jedi Council who are just seat-fillers for Yoda and Mace Windu. It literally doesn't matter who they are so I won't bother to define them. This is probably the best way to go about things with the least kanonical disruption.

There will not be a separate ANSC thread as there was before the Overpurge, as it was never used, is pointless, and all the veto powers ended up vetoing everything anyway. The ANSC will just exist in the background fluff and if anybody uses AN PAX Corps or peacekeepers in their battles then they can say the AN Security Council voted to deploy them or something.
