League of Nations

CONTEXT: Formed in 1920, the League of Nations is a world-wide, multilateral organization tasked with settling international disputes, ensuring collective security, preventing war, addressing the drug trade, arms trade, the protection of minorities and prisoners of war, and so on. It includes several dozen sovereign states, all of which take part in the Assembly, and some of which form its executive Council either as permanent or non-permanent members.

COUNCIL: The current permanent members are France, Britain, Italy, and Japan.

MEMBERS in 1940: Abyssinia, Afghanistan, Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Bolivia, Bulgaria, Republic of China, Colombia, Croatia, Cuba, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, India (Dominion), Italy, Iraq, Japan, Latvia, Liberia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Panama, Persia, Portugal, Romania, Union of South Africa, Thailand, Turkey, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Uruguay.

WITHDRAWALS since 1933: German Reich, Paraguay, Nicaragua, Chile, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, the Irish Free State, Venezuela, Peru, Haiti, Canada, the Soviet Union and Spain.

RULES: Players who are members of the League of Nations may at all times choose to abandon the organization or remain in it. Players who wish to join may request so, provided they receive 2/3s support from all members (simulated). Players may use the League of Nations to air grievances, propose measures, lobby international support, and so on. They may also submit motions, reports or demand actions - such as international sanctions -, which will be voted on by the League at the mid-turn or end of turn. As the result of a Bulgarian motion in early 1940: The League of Nations now requires a 2/3rds majority to make its decisions.

The Soviet Union petitions for readmittance to the League of Nations. Surely, in light of recent rule changes, there should be no serious objections to our proud people having a seat at the table for restoring peace in our times.

The Empire of Japan formally proposes:

1. To transition the seat held by the Dominion of India to represent the authentic Indian nation, nominating Muhammad Ali Jinnah as the rightful delegate for India within the League of Nations (LoN).

Japan contends that the Dominion of India's representation at present is misaligned with the true aspirations of its people. The Empire views this seat as merely an extension of British influence, diluting the League's electoral integrity and compromising its legitimacy by not embodying a diverse array of national views.

Given the League's perceived endorsement of the British Empire's subjugation of indigenous populations, Japan further recommends a temporary suspension of the League's support to such endeavors.

Following its initial proposition regarding India, the Empire of Japan puts forth another motion:

2. The Empire of Japan requests the suspension of New Zealand's membership within the League of Nations. Japan argues that New Zealand cannot be genuinely considered independent, having not yet ratified the Statute of Westminster. As such, its representation within the LoN might still be under the shadow of the British Empire. The Empire of Japan asserts that authentic representation within the League necessitates full sovereign status, devoid of any external dominion influences.

This addition emphasizes Japan's stance on autonomy and the validity of representation within the LoN.

The British delegation  formally opposes both motions from the representative of the Japanese Emperor.

Elections have been scheduled in India in compliance with the applicable laws. At this time there is no legitimate argument to be made that Mr. Jinnah is any more representative of the will of the Indian people than the current representative. Allowing the League to arbitrarily designate a nationís representative is a dangerous precedent that, surely, no member of this body wants to head towards. Suppose that a delegate moved to seat, perhaps, a member of the Kodoha faction as the representative of the Japanese people? What then? The representative of the Japanese Emperor speaks of undue influence on domestic affairs - how is his motion any different?

The people of New Zealand are a proud, capable, independent people. Although the Kiwi and the British are united in the bonds of Empire, it cannot be alleged that the domestic affairs of the Islands are ruled by a bureaucrat in London. The people of New Zealand have successfully and democratically elected their own Prime Minister since the 1850. New Zealand has a strong, proud history as a representative democracy - more so than many other members - and to deny their seat in this body would be an affront to the ideals that this League was established to protect.

The Soviet Union opposes this blusterous nonsense from many delegations. We await our place back within the League once a vote affirms who stands on the side of peace.

Who amongst us in this chamber is content with serving as mere puppets of Hugenberg and the thieves of Germany? After all they have done, and with all their primal intentions in store? Perhaps the League would care to know how the Chancellor plans to sell out, and sell off, the many nations he has begged to join on his murderous crusade against the Soviet people.

If the Soviet faux delegate is going tell lies, he should at least try to make them remotely believable Roll Eyes

May I suggest to the German delegation that mindfulness is a virtue, especially with the tongue. After all, the Italian delegation deserves an explanation for what prevented their Olympics from taking place this year. It was not Soviet mischief which secured the votes for cancellation.

Regarding the Olympic Games, I just want to be clear that Poland voted to cancel the games not because this was Italy which is an esteemed polish ally but that we are facing a war of extermination, Poland's survival is at stake and we didn't believe this is a fitting period to host the olympic games at all

The Japanese motions are laughable. The British Government has been acting in accord with the agreements that are in place in India and no more needs to be said.

Furthermore, the very suggestion that New Zealand is not an independent nation is something that we as Australians harshly condemn. Australian and New Zealander have fought side by side from the shores of Gallipoli to the fields of France, and will always defend each other's mutual independence.

Perhaps we would be inclined to listen to the Japanese Ambassador if he was not threatening invasion of our country at this very moment.
