    Can you explain how it can be a rough guide, I don't quite understand.

    Just that a countries with a pop. of a few million will not, in general, have much to say. I agree that it is a massive generalisation though

    Greece think that all countries in the U.N should have a fair equality. Globalization is set to enhance this equality, attempting to give poorer countries trade contacts with richer countries, trade contacts are placed to attempt to improve a countries wealth, hence - moving these countries forward to equality of other countries.
    Globalization has discontentes; countries may look down on countries being helped, and therefore would not give them a say in votes etc. Yet generally; all countries should have an equal say - yet some countries seem to think they are more equal. (Animal Farm - George Orwell) :P

    Will the next SG make everyone re-choose the countries they wish to represent (as it happened when MUN II) started? The MUN has 60 countries under representation, but at the most 25 are active. What do you intend to do about this?
    If I’m elected, inactive reps are one of the first things I intend to deal with. It isn’t fair that some of these inactive people get to hog countries which other people might want to represent. I want to stay clear of redistribution, as you said it caused chaos. I wasn’t hearing at the time, but I have looked back in the forum and it is just election after election after election.

    I am prepared to listen to ideas on how we are going to go about it. For example, a “mass cull” might be one idea, while another might be to just leave them until someone else wishes to represent that country, when we can replace them.

    As I said in my above post, I am going to redefine in the General Rules what it means to be an “active” and “inactive poster”. I intend these rules to be fairly firm, but at the same time not make people feel that they HAVE to post all the time, maybe once or twice a week.

    Another idea I have to accompany these other regulations I want to put in place, is to reward the most active reps, but that is just in the idea stage at the moment.

    The Ukraine is concerned about the possibility of corruption if the Brazilian rep has slept in the beds of both the people at the head of the poll to become SG.
