RRS Double Feature: Operations Overhaul, Exemption Embellishment

PREAMBLE. This document proposes restrictions of the Operations Councillor's power to tamper with Member State status, while also patching an oversight in RRS 4.

In the Regional interest of adapting to heretofore-unforeseen circumstances, the RRS shall be amended to include the following:


- Operations Overhaul, Exemption Embellishments -



4. Residents may apply for Member State status in conditions where admission to the World Assembly is declined, rejected, or impossible.
  • Residents applying for a World Assembly Exemption must have resided within the Region for a period of time not less than fourteen days and receive the unanimous approval from the Regional Council to provide the exemption.
  • In the event that an exempted Member State accrues influence in another region, requests their status be revoked, or is ejected from the region, the Member State's exemption status is revoked. The Member State can apply to have this status reinstated, following the same protocol as laid out in RRS 4(a).
  • If a Member State's ban or ejection is overturned by the Council, their exemption status will be automatically reinstated upon their return to the Region.
6(d) The Operations Councillor, whose responsibilities are defined as identifying internal and external threats to the Region, possessing a general knowledge of worldwide events and invasion patterns.

This Councillor shall:
  • Organise and lead the Regional response effort to worldwide crises.
  • Organise and lead the response to threats targetting the Region and within the Region.
  • Carry the ability to eject and bar nations from the Region.
  • Only eject and bar nations from the Region in the interests of community moderation and/or regional security.
  • Report the grounds and reasoning on which a nation was ejected or barred from the Region.

Seems fine to me. There would be no way for a member state to spur-of-the-moment demand that the RC revoke an exemption on the spot. Seems like it would only be a kind of matter of fact thing that an exemption is removed after a nation is no longer here or wants the status gone.

This does, however, hand the Ops Councillor effectively unchecked power to remove any or all exemption nations from the region and dislodge their status on a whim if they consider it to be in the interest of "region integrity". It is theoretically possible to use this method to disrupt an election or referendum.

If you wish to submit this, it would be worth considering fleshing out when the Ops Councillor ought to invoke this power.

That's a really good point I hadn't considered. I'll have to think about this for a while. I'll post again with an update once I know what to do about it.
