Union of South Africa Application (Membership Approved)

This is the application for the inclusion of the Union of South Africa into the Southern Defence Pact.

For

  • Federation of the Americas
  • Saudi Arabia
  • México

Against

Condemn the USSR (Ongoing)

For

  • Saudi Arabia (We strongly suggest it. It doesn't actually affect us much, and Communism is the main issue. This proves our hatred of Communism to NATO).
  • México (Those damn commies killed my troops, LOL.)

Against

  • Turkey (even though we are against Communism, and even though Turkey is in the NAC, we should not fan any flames further, as we are an organization against decolonization foremost)
  • Spain (A position of neutrality is better)

SDP Convention Hosts (Ongoing)

Basis

The Charter states that the leaders of the SDP convene every other year to discuss the future of the alliance. We believe that the odd number years should hold these conventions, suggesting the first one in 1951.0. We can also lay out multiple host cities for the future.

Host City Proposals

Maximum of one city application per nation.

  • Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
  • Adana, Turkey
  • San Salvador, México
  • Madrid, Spain

Saudi Arabia proposes an easier way to do this: The host will be a cycle through the member nations, based on order of when they joined. This will start with the Federation, then be Saudi Arabia, then Mexico, then Turkey, then Spain, the South Africa, then India. Any countries which later join will be added on at the end, and when all nations have hosted, we'll go back to the top of the lineup.

Saudi Proposal for Convention issue

Since this hasn't been voted on yet, the first convention will be held in 1952 (this will pass in 1951.5)

Votes For

Votes Against

Resolution to Change the SDP Flag (Introduced: 1950)

  • Turkish Proposal:
    • The SDP should introduce a flag that visualizes the core tenets of our organizations, and those include democracy, freedom, cooperation, and self-reliance.
    • This flag should also in some way incorporate colors and/or symbols that are inclusive of the majority of SDP members.
    • Note: This resolution does not introduce a single flag design, but authorizes the SDP to at least consider designing and implenting a new flag in the near future.

Votes For

  • Turkey

Votes Against

Pact Resolution #1 Joining the United Nations (Enacted)

Federation Proposal

This is a resolution dealing with the United Nations, All current and future members of the SDP will join the United Nations as an opportunity to legitimize the alliance, provide better diplomatic arrays to enemies and allies alike, and push for other issues within the UN that require SDP attention. This will also remove the seemingly rogue status of the SDP and promote a more powerful act of co-operation with the world.

In Favor

  • Saudi Arabia
  • Spain
  • Federation of the Americas
  • México
  • Turkey

Against

Ethiopian Question

  • Ethiopia is a brutal absolute hereditary monarchy which is a combination of various ethnic and religious groups. We feel that even though they are de-colonized, we should be able to turn this brutal state into a proper democracy. Even though we did some sly movements the nation of Spain believes, we are doing this for the better. Spain will withhold our actions but instead ask the question: What do we do with Ethiopia?
  • Saudi Arabia: Believes that we should let them be. They are not being Communist, and not hostile to us. It is not worth it to start conflicts we don't need to, when we should be focused on Greece, Cuba and the Middle East, with possibility of adding in Thailand or Vietnam to our focus.

Yemen Application (Membership Approved)

For

  • Saudi Arabia
  • Spain
  • Turkey
  • Federation of India
  • Federation of the Americas

Against

Oil (Enacted)

Saudi Proposal

  • All members will sell oil to all non-Communist nations, for the following reasons:
    • We'll get rich, and be able to invest that money in becoming more industrialized.
    • The economies of Kurdistan and Iran immediately collapse.
    • We have more leverage in negotiations with NATO and the EU.
    • Saudi Arabia will become the regional powerhouse, and be able to force Britain out of the Middle East.
  • This resolution may be repealed as a normal bill, but not for another 5 turns after this passes.

For

  • Saudi Arabia
  • México
  • Federation of the Americas
  • Spain
  • Federation of India

Against

  • Turkey

Egypt

Saudi Proposal

  • All SDP member nations must send at least 1% of their tax income to aid Egypt in securing the Suez Canal, which may be paid through military presence.
  • Should Egypt be invaded by any of Britain, France and Israel, all SDP members will embargo the invading nation and send an increased amount of monetary support or military support.

For

  • Yemen
  • Spain
  • Saudi Arabia
  • México

For

  • Saudi Arabia
  • Spain
  • Federation of India
  • Yemen
  • México

Against

Economy (Enacted)

Saudi Proposal

In order to get ourselves closer to an autarky, Saudi Arabia proposes the following plan:


  • Make an SDP stock exchange, based in Sao Paulo but with branches in Johannesburg, Riyadh, Istanbul, Mexico City, Madrid, and Delhi.
  • The Stock exchange will allow trading of only companies which sell exclusively to the SDP.
  • The SDP will levy a corporate tax of 7.5% on companies. This tax will double if the company is headquartered in a non-SDP country, and all SDP-only companies will be exempt.
  • The SDP will levy a 5% tariff on all imports from non-SDP nations.
  • The money made by the SDP will go into industrialization, military, foreign aid, and economic projects, and will be administered by the SDP government.
  • The SDP will try to improve industrial output, with the first year's worth of money from the corporate tax going to industrialization projects so that we will have enough industrial output so that we can be self-sufficient.

For

  • Saudi Arabia
  • Federation of the Americas
  • Republic of Malaya

Against

  • Yemen. We rely on selling oil internationally and foreign investment and we don't wish to drive away money moving into our country.

Explanation

This passes under Article 3, Clause 6 of the charter.

World War III (Enacted)

Saudi Proposal

  • The SDP declares neutrality in the current World War.
  • Nuclear weapons will be stationed in India, South Africa, and Mexico.
  • Should war be declared, or a military attack occur against any SDP member nation, all member nations will declare war on that nation.
  • No member of the SDP shall declare war without a vote of more than two thirds of the members (at this point, seven of nine), unless a country is attacked in a major manner.
  • Any country that declares war without being invaded or a vote in the SDP, or any country that refuses to declare war should the SDP vote in favor of war, shall be removed from the SDP.

For

  • Saudi Arabia
  • México
  • Yemen
  • Federation of India

Against

  • Spain (We want to keep our options open, to all instantaneous action limited by these meanings. I might attack nations and you guys should kick me out if you don't want war. But allow me to rejoin when the war ends)

Explanation

This passes under article 3, Clause 6 of the charter.

Kick Spain out of SDP during WW-III

For

  • Saudi Arabia
  • Federation of India

Against

  • México (One does not simply leave the SDP and get back in.)
  • Spain (As a facade)
  • Yemen (if Spain breaks the rules we will kick them out but not as long as they follow the rules)


Ending the Third World War

The French and NATO have escalated the conflict with the Soviet Union which has put the world in a precarious position that may end up in a more expanded nuclear exchange. I say that as much as we don't condone the war we should end it. I propose ending the war and using the already spread thin militaries to our advantage and seize the Capitals of many NATO and PACT countries and force a peace settlement that ends the World War.

NOTE: Due to a prior resolution, this resolution would require two-thirds of the countries that voted.

For

  • Federation of the Americas
  • México

Against

  • Saudi Arabia (You're literally proposing to end war with war. This is also so obviously imperialist, what we have stood against for so long. I made a proposal which has already passed.)
  • Yemen. (This is not only suicide also counter-productive. Let them fight and respect the overwhelming support for current neutrality. If this passes I am leaving.)
  • Republic of Malaya (I do not want war. I, too, will leave if this is enacted. I will vehemently maintain my neutrality.)
  • Spain (If you want to attack them, attack them when they destroy each other. But for now, no.)

Individual war

Proposed by Yemen

  • Nations on their own have a right to wage individual wars.
  • Nations must table a resolution if they wish to start a war which will require more than half of people to veto it.
  • They may not in any way use the SDP name in the prosecution of their own war and must accept they have to fight the war on their own.
  • Any other SDP nation wishing to aid must follow the same procedure on individuals war or table a resolution to give economic aid, etc.

For

  • Yemen
  • Federation of the Americas
  • Federation of India
  • Spain
  • Republic of Malaya

Against

Passed

Support to the Indonesian Nationalists in their Civil War.

This is to align the Nationalists in Indonesia with the SDP. The country has great ability to economically excel and is in a strategic location. The Federation has already acted to support the Nationalists in whatever way possible, but request the SDP to join in on this.

For

  • Federation of the Americas
  • Spain

Against

  • Republic of Malaya

This is passed after one year.


Egyptian application into the SDP

For

  • Federation of the Americas
  • Spain
  • Saudi Arabia

Against

Economic Autarky

For

  • Federation of the Americas

Against

  • Yemen

Dissolution

Resolution

  • The SDP will cease to exist.
  • All funds currently held in the SDP central bank will be distributed proportionally by GDP
  • The Suez Canal will go under control of Egypt, and just Egypt
  • The companies traded in the SDP stock exchange will instead be traded where their headquarters are located.

Reason

Out of frustration over a buildup of disagreements with the Federation, eceonomically, militarily, and most importantly their unwillingness to fight communism. Many SDP countries have felt out of touch with the Federation. This is meant to be democratic as a supernational government, and an economic autarky. That is what we agreed on, but not what we have received. We ask all countries who have been disagreeing with the Federation on major issues, especially foreign policy, to join us. According to our charter, if half of us agree, then this will disband the SDP, even if the Federation disagrees. I call on Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Malaya, India, and Turkey to vote in favor of this resolution, and if it fails, to leave the SDP. I am not ruling out creating a new alliance similar to this one of the people who favor reform to this system and no dominance of one country, but that is not up to me.
