Let it be known that Samtonia has realized that many nations on Nationstates who say they are members of the UN in reality only pay this position of great honor lip-synch.

Therefore, Samtonia will undertake the following:

1. A comprehensive list of all UN resolutions which have passed to this date and the dates they were implemented.

2. A brief summarization of how said resolutions affect nations in the UN.

3. Updates to the list as new resolutions are passed and brought into effect.

Therefore, be it resolved that this service to nations to allow them to see exactly what policies they are forced to follow decide before joining the UN or continuing to stay a member of the UN shall be implemented immediately by the nation of Samtonia.

Passed by a vote of 7 to 5, with one Councilmember abstaining this twenty-seventh of August, in the Year of our Lord 2004.
