Representative Proposals / House Bill X: The Simple English Act
« on: July 29, 2022, 01:49:37 am »
House Bill X: The Simple English Act

Author(s): Battadia

Purpose: In order to improve the effectiveness and accountability of the public service by requiring their communications to be clear and accessible to the public.

Article I: Definitions

1. "Simple English" is defined as language which the intended reader can easily understand after 1 reading, and follows the Simple English Wikipedia guidelines.

2. "Government communication" is defined as any communication from the Federal House of Representatives or the Executive branch of the Federal government which is delivered to the public, unless said communication is already in Simple English.

3. "Office of the Copier" is defined as a special officer appointed by the Prime Minister, and/or any other personnell whom the officer deems necessary.

Article II: Regulations and procedure

1. All government communications must have a copy made that is written in Simple English.

2. In the event that the government official writing the communication is unwilling or unable to supply a Simple English copy of the Communication, they may request a copy from the Office of the Copier.

1. Which House Bills do you plan to pass and/or repeal? Why?
I plan to create a Simple English Bill similar to the one proposed by Rachel Boyack in the New Zealand Parliament.

2. In what ways should the Constitution be amended, if at all? Explain how the changes would improve the current system of governance.
Given the imminence of a new Constitution, I do not feel that it would be wise to amend it at this time.

3. What qualifies you to serve in the House? What makes this qualifying?
I have served in the House before, I have held governmental positions in multiple regions of the Union, and I have been appointed to three separate Cabinet offices.

4. Do you think any changes should be made to existing House Procedures? If so, what changes should be made and why?
Give the speaker muting privileges in the House channel by using the command ",order" No changes are needed.

5. If elected, do you plan on running for Speaker? If so, what makes you a good candidate for this position and if not, who do you think would be a better candidate?
I do not desire to become Speaker, and I do not know who the best candidate will be.

6. How do you plan to ensure the voices of your constituents are heard while in office?
My constituents know that they can talk to me at any time, and I will ensure that I bring their concerns to the House.

7. How do you feel about the influence parties have on the House and electoral process, and should it be more or less? Explain your answer fully.
As I have consistently said, I believe that there needs to be a shift in the platforms of the parties, as right now they must resort to identity politics and ad hominem attacks in order to be perceived by the populace as "different" due to their incredibly similar policy positions.

8. The House of Representatives is the sole legal body with the ability to remove a Prime Minister from office. Under what circumstances would you support the removal of one and what constitutes 'going too far'? Cite specific legal passages if necessary and ensure that your answer is sufficiently detailed.
The Constitution has provisions for this, and if it came to this, I would ensure that the due process would be followed.

To increase the influence of our region on the world stage and enhance its security, I would like to ask a special favour of you:

[u]Join the World Assembly![/u]

The World Assembly has many benefits to offer you, including the ability to endorse others and gain the position of World Assembly Delegate, the ability to submit and vote on resolutions brought to the General Assembly or Security Council, and the ability to seamlessly take part in our military, should a situation arise.

[spoiler=[b]Follow these steps to join[/b]]
══════════════════════════════════════
[list=1][*]First, make sure you have an email connected to your nation, which can be set (or removed/changed) in your [url=/page=settings][b]settings page[/b][/url].
[*]Go to [url=https://www.nationstates.net/page=un][b]the World Assembly page[/b][/url] and click [b]Apply to Join[/b].
[*]Check your email for a message from NationStates. If you can't find one, make sure to check your junk or spam mail. It may take a minute or two to show up, so be patient.
[*]Finally, click the verification link in the email and you'll be brought to a page to confirm your WA membership. Click on the button to join.[/list]
...and that's it! You're in. Once you've joined, make sure [b]not[/b] to join the World Assembly with another nation. It goes against game rules and [b]you will[/b] be caught.

══════════════════════════════════════
[/spoiler]

We'd also like to ask a favour of you: endorse our World Assembly Delegate! The current WAD is myself, [b][nation]Greica[/nation][/b].
More endorsements give our region more power on the world stage, so we ask that you do this if you want to see that come to fruition!

[b]Greetings, nations of Force![/b]

You might have expected me to send you the long-awaited list of WA newcomers, but sadly that won't be the case for this week as no new WA nations have joined us. Yes, yes, very sad.

Instead, I will use this as a chance to remind you that, if you think you might have missed some people in the region, please check over at [u][b]https://forum.thenorthpacific.org/pages/endorse_world/[/b][/u]

[b]Great nations of Force,[/b]

To increase the influence of our region on the world stage and enhance its security, I would like to ask a special favour of you:

[u]Join the World Assembly![/u]

The World Assembly has many benefits to offer you, including the ability to endorse others and gain the position of World Assembly Delegate, the ability to submit and vote on resolutions brought to the General Assembly or Security Council, and the ability to seamlessly take part in our military, should a situation arise.

[spoiler=[b]Follow these steps to join[/b]]
══════════════════════════════════════
[list=1][*]First, make sure you have an email connected to your nation, which can be set (or removed/changed) in your [url=/page=settings][b]settings page[/b][/url].
[*]Go to [url=https://www.nationstates.net/page=un][b]the World Assembly page[/b][/url] and click [b]Apply to Join[/b].
[*]Check your email for a message from NationStates. If you can't find one, make sure to check your junk or spam mail. It may take a minute or two to show up, so be patient.
[*]Finally, click the verification link in the email and you'll be brought to a page to confirm your WA membership. Click on the button to join.[/list]
...and that's it! You're in. Once you've joined, make sure [b]not[/b] to join the World Assembly with another nation. It goes against game rules and [b]you will[/b] be caught.

[/spoiler]

We'd also like to ask a favour of you: endorse our World Assembly Delegate! The current WAD is myself, [b][nation]Battadia[/nation][/b].
More endorsements give our region more power on the world stage, so we ask that you do this if you want to see that come to fruition!

Announcements & News / Resignation of Battadia from all positions.
« on: February 12, 2022, 03:34:39 pm »
Unfortunately, I must resign from all my positions, effective immediately.


While I regret that this comes days after my celebration of one year of residence in Force, I feel that I am unable to work towards the furthering of Force in a positive manner. I feel that I come across as abrasive and aggressive, and my arguments with Sir Salibaic have become more frequent. As these are not qualities which are conducive to the betterment of the Union, I feel compelled to remove myself from the community. In addition, I have entered the final stages of my education, and that is demanding an ever-increasing amount of my time and energy, and I sadly must prioritise that over Force.


For the positions of World Assembly Delegate and Director of World Assembly Affairs, I recommend Bertilistan, as he seems to be very industrious and hard-working, and was only a few endorsements behind me when I was made Delegate, which should make the transfer of delegacy much the same.

For my position as Director of Diplomacy, I recommend Kronisia, if he is eligible as PM, due to the fact that he served well in that role while I was Minister of Foreign Affairs. If he is ineligible, then I recommend Sir Salibaic to that position, as he has a long and distinguished history in out diplomatic corps.

For my position as Justice of the High Court, I recommend Moony, as he is the only person I have found in almost a year of being a Justice actually wanting to become one.

For my role in Citizen's Alliance of Democracy as Director of Regional Events, I recommend Caduceo, as he is my deputy, and he seems able to perform in that role quite well.

For the position as Imperator of Hyperion, it should go to anyone willing to take up that position, taking note of the time and energy running a region takes.

Unfortunately, I am unable to think of anybody willing to fill the positions of Minister of Media, Cartographer, and Justice of the Tribunal, but I am sure that replacements can be found.


There are some important things I would like some people to remember:

Sir Salibaic, please do not forget to submit an advertisement for The Gay Agenda

House Representatives, please create an amendment clarifying the process for a Citizen's Amendment, as it is woefully unenlightening of the method to propose an amendment.

To the future Imperator of Hyperion, please pass an amendment to clarify the process for elections, as that was something I was sadly unable to do.

To the future Minister of Media, please ensure that the contact details for the advertisements are up to date.


I will remain as acting WA Delegate until a replacement is appointed, and I will likewise continue to make polls until a new Director of World Assembly Affairs is appointed. I will also linger around the (unreleased) wiki for some time doing technical work, so when that comes out, you might see me there.

On a personal note, I would like to thank everybody in the entire Union for making such a wonderful community, but I would like to personally address some people.

Renegalle, thank you for creating Force in the first place. To have been here for an entire year of my life has been amazing, and it's been one of the most fun experiences I've ever had. Recently, we celebrated the 5th Force Day, and I would like to congratulate you for sticking with us for five years. Personally, you're a great guy, and you're always willing to have a discussion with anybody who wants it, even if you are cutting chicken at the time.

Sir Salibaic, while we've had our disagreements, please know that I still hold you in the highest regard. You were Prime Minister when I first arrived, and you stayed in that position for quite a decent portion of my time here. You led the government very well, and Cabinet meetings are always interesting when you arrive.

Elysium, as much as I disagree with you on just about everything, you're still an integral part of the culture of Force, and you add a certain Southern flavour that would be missing without you. If you weren't here, Force would be a different place. You've made my time here fun and interesting, so thank you.

Kronisia, I am deeply sorry for leaving you with this massive mess of vacancies to clean up. Perhaps somebody should cook up an amendment limiting the number of positions somebody can hold. Regardless, you have lead cabinet well in your time, and I'm sure that your Prime Minsitership will lead Force to new heights and successes, as we've seen with the groundbreaking Treaty of Mutual Recognition and Cooperation with The Socialist Syndicalist Union. As the leader of the UPP, you brought me into CAD, and that region will always be the Little Region That Could to me, as it obtained Statehood. As Archon of CAD, you've stuck with the region through thick and thin, and although I only got to experience a tiny sliver of CAD's history, you made it worthwhile.

Tigslarlowducken, you have been the Chief Justice for the entire time I have been on the High Court, and quite frankly I expect you to remain there until the end of time. You've been a mentor for me as a Justice, and you're always someone I know I can send some legislation to, knowing that it'll get an eagle-eyed review. Thank you.


I would like to end with a quote from Bilbo Baggins, a hobbit much like myself:
"I regret to announce that this is the end. I am going now, and I bid you all a very fond farewell."

Ngā mihi nui, Battadia
