The World Assembly Report and Regional Comparisons is a statistics based report intended to track the region's World Assembly membership and endorsements of Delegate Dome Artan. The report is based off statistics generated by a spreadsheet maintained by the region's Delegate and is updated at each Major update. The report will be published weekly following the Monday Major update and the subsequent spreadsheet update. Ultimately the goal of the report will be to track the Union's development of its influence in the World Assembly, done through increasing both it's total memberships and total Delegate endorsements.

The report will also include a Regional Comparisons component as a means of evaluation for the region's progress. The region will be compared to similarly sized peers based on the Regions World Census ranking. Relevant regional Delegate endorsement totals will be displayed with the goal of the region to be favourably compared to these regions. This component will also include the region's current ranking in the World Assembly Endorsements Census for ease of access.

Beginning with the Fifth Edition the report also includes an Advanced Analytics section that incorporates various statistics far too difficult to gather manually. This section will chart the region's total influence growth (a main target of the PIG in the UDS program), the region's total World Assembly endorsements separately from the average endorsement statistic and the region's endorsement saturation. These statistics will be accompanied by the Union's respective ranking in each category. This entire section is only possible thanks to the NS renowned AugustinAndroid (the Moose) created by August.

Nearly identical overall WA statistics trends to those seen last week. The region continues to shed nations from the Drew Rush which has had the effect of boosting the percentage of WA nations endorsing the Delegate and the percentage of WA nations in the region. Both saw their largest jumps yet in the UDS WA reports. The most interesting, and fortunate, stat change found here is actually the lack of any impact from Drew Rush CTEs on the Delegate's endorsements. Adding a net 12 votes in a time where the region has had total CTEs approaching 200 is impressive.

Total Influence Ranking: 44th
Total Regional Influence: 735,829

Unsurprisingly the UDS' total influence graph and its mammoth spike coincides nearly perfectly with the population boom brought on by the Drew Rush. While the gain is expected, the rapid pace of the continued growth is worth noting. At the start of April the UDS was below 500,000 total influence while today we are over a quarter of the way to 800,000.

Total Regional WA Endorsements Ranking: 14th
Total Regional WA Endorsements: 6700

This is easily my favourite statistic to track for the region, especially this last week. I made a personal note on the 27th of May that only read "4.43k endos". Well as is not so clearly seen by the awesome spike in the graph, that number is now 6700 and has a chance of cracking 7000 when it is recalculated tonight. This is absurd growth far beyond what the region has seen before. While I would love to credit PIG and our good friend Hamlet this success is owed pretty much entirely to the members (and soon to be members) of Hamlet's Heroes who put in the endotarting work this past week, the Union and it's Delegate thank you.

Endorsement Saturation Ranking: 63rd
Endorsement Saturation: 9.95%

First of all, what is Endorsement Saturation exactly? It is the total endorsements in the region over the total potential endorsements which would be achieved if every WA nation endorsed every WA nation. This statistic is our weakest one, which is actually a good thing! It shows that for all the growth the previous graphs demonstrate we have plenty of room to keep growing.

Current Average Endorsement Ranking: 19th
10.03 endorsements per nation

As the Union's population has fallen it has allowed the graph to represent different regions with which to compare the Union to. This in turn leads to the best graph posted in this section yet (right after last week's was). The Union's Delegate endorsements are slower climbing up the region ranks and for reference our Delegate currently has the 21st most votes in NS.

Like always however the main comparison I want to focus this section on is the continued improvement in average endorsements. If you took the time to check out Advanced Analytics above you no doubt understand that this stat too has seen a massive surge. In last week's edition the Union had not yet broken the top 30 regions and was sitting at 5.61 average endorsements. This week with the endotarting campaigns of many Unionists, the region has cracked the top 20, sitting at 19th with (an honestly unimaginable number last week) just over 10 average endorsements. I once again congratulate the Union for its efforts here and encourage those who haven't endorsed everyone to do so, who knows where another week like this past one could land us.

The region has seen remarkable growth in all WA related statistics but as ever we can do better. Being below 10% endorsement saturation proves that immediately. The easiest way to help the region is joining the World Assembly and then endorsing Delegate Dome Artan.

To join the World Assembly if you have not yet done so simply navigate to the World Assembly and press the button Apply to Join. To officially join the WA you must access the email associated with your NationStates account and click the link in the email sent to you. Now you are in the World Assembly!

The easiest way to increase our region's influence now that you are in the World Assembly is to endorse our regional Delegate. The Delegate votes on resolutions with a vote worth all of their endorsements plus one. This is why it is so crucial to endorse your regional delegate. To endorse the Delegate, or anyone in the region for that matter, go to their nation page by clicking their nation name wherever you find it (such as right here Dome Artan). Now just scroll down to the bottom of their nation page where you will find an Endorse button, click this to endorse that nation.

Want to do even more? Telegram Dome Artan and ask for a list of your unendorsed nations after you've joined the World Assembly. Endorsing everyone in the region improves our influence gain (we're almost at Very High Regional Power!), improves our voting power in the WA and improves our average endorsement ranking.

Much thanks goes to August for allowing the usage of the bot generated graphs from Advanced Analytics as well as for creating the fantastic AugustinAndroid.
