Fellow Councillors:

The Organization of Raw Material Exporting Countries (ORMEC) rises to request authorization to intervene in the increasingly unstable state of DDVR.

Not only has the regime of Generalissimo Der Joe been derelict in its duties with respect to responding to the needs of the people of DDVR, but that government's negligence is now spilling over into neighboring nations. A recent economic report indicates that the increasing uncertainty in DDVR is a drag on economic growth in Brucan. Similarly, an environmental report indicates that DDVR dumps massive amounts of pollution in Vithuland.

In response to these realities, we hope that this body will approve our request.

ORMEC respectfully yields the floor.
