Hello good Ridgfielders,

My name is Second Prophet Cormorant, and I will be representing the Draconic Propheteers in Ridgefield. We are a nation of benevolent, but generally terrified, people who all had a vision of dragons burning the world, and would like to either find a community to help our nation of visionaries set itself up, or an in-depth legalistic distraction to possibly slow down any especially bureaucratic dragon's demolition of us.

Though we are a veritable infant nation of dragon-worriers, I hope that you will find cause to support our quest to not get viciously devoured, and to keep our vision safe within our borders.

Respectfully,
Second Prophet Cormorant

VOTING RECOMMENDATION

The Defense Office of the CSC suggests that residents vote FOR the at-vote proposal, Military Identification Tag Act.

1. The legislation provides a succinct and useful definition of its terms, as well as successfully identifying the issue at hand.

2. Section 2, the real meat of the legislation, is simply and easily fulfilled by member nations.

3. The legislation serves a unified and simple purpose, providing a service to military service members that should have long ago been established.

4. The legislation encourages cooperation between member nations, as well as protects the identity and rights of military members across the world.

Again, residents are encouraged to vote FOR the at-vote proposal. Please direct questions to New Jaedonstan.

Current Proposal
"Military Identification Tag Act"

The General Assembly,

Aware that the whereabouts of many military personnel of various nations of the General Assembly remains unknown,

Appalled at the absence of medical treatment to recovered, yet unresponsive military personnel due to lack of identification,

Lamenting that many soldiers who are killed-in-action remain unidentified,

Wishing to reunite those who are killed-in-action with their loved ones for proper funeral services,

Knowing that military identification tags lend tremendous help in seeking missing-in-action or killed-in-action military combatants,

Acknowledging the significant role of military identification tags in the treatment of unconscious or unresponsive military personnel,

Noting that the bodies of deceased military personnel must be correctly identified in order to inform loved ones of loss, conduct funerals, as well as properly bury or cremate deceased combatants based on the wishes of the deceased,

Hereby,

1. Defines a military identification tag as any durable item worn by military personnel for the purpose of identifying a deceased or unconscious body of a military combatant,

2. Requires that all members of the World Assembly issue military identification tags to all registered military combatants and field personnel with the following correct and legible identification categories:

- Full legal name, including middle initial or name and suffix,
- Military identification number,
- Blood type, indicating blood type letter and Rh factor,

3. Allows member nations to include any other information deemed necessary,

4. Requires that all member nations issue each tag with a duplicate in order to identify the bodies of deceased combatants for initial identification and later recovery,

5. Allows member nations to provide the resources required to produce military identification tags to other member nations if said nation has a lack thereof.

6. Advises member nations from issuing military identification tags to unregistered combatants with public funding,

7. Prohibits the intentional destruction or displacement of active or salvaged military identification tags by any means,

8. Allows member nations to re-purpose the materials in military identification tags after they have been decommissioned.

Vote Recommendation: FOR.

  • The legislation provides a succinct and useful definition of its terms, as well as successfully identifying the issue at hand.

  • Section 2, the real meat of the legislation, is simply and easily fulfilled by member nations.

  • The legislation serves a unified and simple purpose, providing a service to military service members that should have long ago been established.

  • The legislation encourages cooperation between member nations, as well as protects the identity and rights of military members across the world.

(June 01 2020) New Rodack Times: President Johnwell Announces the "New Rodack's National Space Agency"!

At 4:00 PM on June 1st the president officially announced the formation of the NRNSA, a space agency to "Take New Rodack to the New Frontier" as Johnwell put it. When asked the purposes of this agency he responded, "It's the only logical course for humanity and by extension New Rodack. I know some may doubt the NRNSA and say it's a waste of money but those critics aren't thinking of the future. Space is the next new world filled with resources which could help us leap decades ahead of where we are now!"

President Johnwell has also expressed his willingness to work with foreign agencies for the good of space exploration and aeronautics. "We should all have a chance to leap to the stars and this is an opportunity for every nation and people to work together to do so!" He posted on his twitter half an hour after announcing the NRNSA.

This decision however has not come without backlash from more critical experts who see the nation as incapable of being able to spend enough to live up to these high expectations set by the president. Others believe that setting the foundation for space exploration and resource collection could benefit the economy of New Rodack. Regardless of the sides Johnwell has shown no signs of backing down and with support from eight of the nine states Johnwell will have the necessary resources to go through with it too.

Time will tell where exactly this decision will take New Rodack, but the stars certainly is the target New Rodack is aiming for.
