The Organisation of Nautasian Unity is a continental union for the nations of the continent of Nautasia, working for peace, development and independence in the greater region. Its stated goals are the preservation of peace in the continent, the protection and promotion of regional and national heritage, and the support for strong Nautasian nations free of foreign intervention.

The organisation was founded through the Treaty of Qufeira signed on 5 August 1998 by the foreign ministers of the original members in Qufeira, Irvadistan. The treaty came into force on 11 June 2000 and led to the formal establishment of the group. It was originally designed as a working group for the nations of the continent to assemble and find solutions to issues they all face, but the signing of the Freedomtown Accord on 11 December 2008 expanded the organisation to include a permanent executive and established a legislature, turning it into a true union.

The secretariat is located in St. Martin, capital of East Nautarya.

History

Organisation

Secretariat

The Secretariat of the Organisation of Nautasian Unity handles the day to day operations of the organisation and sets policy. It is led by the Secretary-General. The office largely concerns itself with issuing statements on issues, acting as a liaison between member-states, and coordinating the operations of the Organsation. The Secretariat however lacks formal powers over the Assembly and Commission, despite being the nominal head of ONU, the Secretary-General can in no way impede or interfere with the legislative process of the Assembly or the decisions made by the Commission.

The current Secretary-General is Hadi al-Moussawi of West Nautarya.

Commission

The Commission of the Organisation of Nautasian Unity is a body that consists of a delegate from every member-state. It is responsible for member admissions and has the power to authorise spending by the group and handles cultural, educational and military programs that are under the responsibility of the ONU.

The current Commissioner is ?.

Assembly

The Assembly of the Organisation of Nautasian Unity is the legislature of the group and consists of 290 delegates elected from all member-states by an electoral college that distributes the seats in the body according to states' population, this generally done by appointing a number of delegates in line with a member state's population via percentage. The Assembly can pass resolutions concerning any issue in member-states relevant to the goals and charter of the Organisation.

The nature of how individual nations appoint their delegates varies, with countries like Irvadistan and Ankoren directly appointing their delegates from their respective ruling parties, whilst countries like Pisdara and Magane select their delegates through direct-elections.

The Assembly enjoys legislative initiative, however it lacks control over ONU's budget which is handled by the Comission. Finally, the ONU Commission, the executive body of ONU, is accountable to the Assembly. In particular, the Assembly elects the President of the Commission and its delegates, and approves (or rejects) the appointment of the Commission as a whole. It can subsequently force the Commission as a body to resign by adopting a motion of censure.

The Assembly is presided upon by the President of the Assembly, currently Saleh Jaber of Kraq.
