I did not know that it would violate the rules, sorry for the inconvience.

@ the guy who corrected me spelling, shut up, I typed fast it is a message board people make spelling mistakes sometimes.

This isn't something you can enforce as it would be changing the game mechanics I assume, so it would have to be volutary, and therefore there doesn't seem a lot of point in voting on it if it doesn't even do anything. I'm sure that the economic benefits exist (although of course they can be disputed), but they wouldn't actually have an impact if it wasn't enforceable.

Koroser believes wontons are for eating, not for buying things with. We are satisfied with our current currency, and your attempted infringement on our state's rights are not appriciated.

First of all, cut the crap about the Fried Wonton. It's juvenille and this proposal stands little chance of getting to quorom even without it. Having said that, we're not entirely against this proposal. In fact, I'm even starting to like it. Your arguments for an international currency are good. You'll need to go into greater detail about the exchanging of the original currency into the UN currency. The way I look at it, after the resolution passes there's a one year period during which the UN produces NSDollars and ships them to the national mints of countries around the NS universe. From there, the NSDollars go to that country's banks and are exchanged for the original currency. A fixed exchange rate would be set up between the NSDollar and the currencies of the original nations. After one year, the original currency officially becomes worthless. Regrettably, any buried treasure not discovered during this time becomes worthless paper. :D

This proposal is quite likely illegal as a games mechanics violation. UN proposals are not allowed to change the customisable features of nations (currency, national animal, flag etc.).

The Dodgy']Description: This proposal will make all UN Nations have a single currency.
Game mechanics violation.

This currency would be the Fried Wonton.
I suspect many delegates would consider this silly, to say the least.

Silliness confirmed.

This will strengthen the global economy.
Maybe in the very long term, but to start with it will ruin economies that need vastly different interest rates to control inflation. We could see economic collapse leading to wars.

Why do people find it so difficult to run their resolution through a spell checker?

While the delegate from The Dodgy is, obviously, out to help the world, this proposal is ludacris(sp?). Darkumbria will stand the rest of the UN delegates in saying this is worthless and should not pass. The region of Northwind's countries have their own currencies and want nothing to do with any attempt to change them.

The Monarch of Raikatuji refuses to endorse such a puerile resolution. The loss of identity will not be worth any potential benefits if any that such a resolution might bring.

I like the idea, but it is most definately illegal. The stickies specify not making an international currency; as it involve changing nation selected variables.

we will never agree to support this truly ridiculous idea. It is insulting to the esteemed delegates of the UN that you bring this before us. The idea of having an international currency would never gain approval from the majority of the ns states.

We note that this proposal is illegal. That said, we would expect a fried wonton to be difficult to swallow as a universal currency, and a fired wonton to be even harder to swallow. We hereby register our disapproval of such wonton acts of menace.
