    Now I've just joined as the new representative for the UAE could I re-write the travesty that is the UAE's country profile? It looks like it was written by a child and some of the "lil facts" aren't really facts and are inaccurate, am I allowed to amend it or do I have to suffer with it until I leave the MUN?

    Feedback on what I have done so far would be helpful.

    I will be including a bit on the EU and key Treaties, the 2+4 one and others. Regarding the German/EU relations; rehabilitation, economics, more assertive since reunification etc

    Once Germany is done, I will be doing one on the EU

    Is there a template to go off as I've got the main parts that are required for the UAE's profile and I just need to know how to lay it out as the profiles I've looked at all have different formatting

    Is there a template to go off as I've got the main parts that are required for the UAE's profile and I just need to know how to lay it out as the profiles I've looked at all have different formatting
    This is a good example:



    India

    Capital: New Delhi
    Continent: Although it is in Asia, it is pretty much its own continent i.e. Indian sub-continent
    President: Pranab Mukherjee
    Languages: Hindi and English
    Currency: Rupee! (Isn’t that fun to say out loud?)

    TSR:

    On TSR- India is a permanent member of the Security Council- thus it means you must be elected to fill this position

    As it is a BRIC nation, it has tremendous influence over international politics; hence it is a very fulfilling position to hold on TSR

    Politics:

    India is technically the largest populous ‘democracy’ on the planet with a population of over a million

    Third largest army in the world/Nuclear state

    The United Progressive Alliance are at the helm, a left-leaning party

    Multi-party system mirroring its pluralistic society

    India’s immense size is owest to its composition of 27 states

    Economy:

    Developing industrialised nation- market based (as many of you will experience from Indian call centers )

    In terms of GDP, one of the fastest growing economies on the planet

    Religion:

    Largely Hindu (causing tensions with Muslims in the north)

    Society:

    Multi-ethnic, multilingual society

    Despite India’s growing wealth, it is also noted for its massive wealth gap- epitomised in Mumbai which has the biggest slum in India

    Caste-system- a rigid social hierarchy. India emphasises traditional family values, having an incredibly low divorce rate.

    Current issues:

    The rights of women- As was epitomised in the tragic rape of a physiotherapy student in Delhi 2012. India has a poor legal framework in terms of sexual assaults on women, receiving international condemnation on the issue.

    Allies: USA, EU, Russia, France, UK and Canada

    Hostilities towards: China and Pakistan

    In the opinion of the present representative to India, Cheese_Monster, Indian food is the best in the world.

    I'm EU representative though and I've already submitted one, so why?
    The one I intended would have included every single Treaty since the formation of the European Coal and Steel Community. Rome, SEA, Maastricht etc. It would include the institutions of the EU, competences aswell etc.

    I shall be including a section on Germany and the EU in the profile which I am currently working on. Also it's campaign to get onto the Security Council. I am discussing the economy atm

    There was a European dimension regarding the reunfication of Germany.

    Cheers Rory, though I see a glaring mistake in my own profile- India has over a 'billion' in population, not a million

    Also as a general note for anyone planning to write a description, the main point is to be persuasive that the nation is worth representing (hence to increase activity) and to be informative so that reps know where there country stands or where potential hypes lay.
