The World Assembly Security Council (WASC) is one of the principal organs of the World Assembly and is charged with the maintenance of international peace and security. Its powers, outlined in the World Assembly Charter, include the establishment of peacekeeping operations, the establishment of international sanctions, and the authorization of military action. Its powers are exercised through World Assembly Security Council Resolutions.
The Security Council held its first session on 17 January 1946 at Church House, Mondom. Since its first meeting, the Council, which exists in continuous session, has traveled widely, holding meetings in many cities, such as Norris and Addis Ababa, as well as at its current permanent home in the World Assembly building in Lohana.
There are 15 members of the Security Council, consisting of six veto-wielding permanent members (Brittany, Sttenia, Youngovakia, Great Mritain, Holy Germania, Dragoonasag) and ten elected non-permanent members with two-year terms. This basic structure is set out in Chapter V of the WA Charter. Security Council members must always be present at WA headquarters in Lohana so that the Security Council can meet at any time. This requirement of the World Assembly Charter was adopted to address a weakness of the League of Nations since that organization was often unable to respond quickly to a crisis.
