World Assembly (TV series)
World Assembly is a reality television program that follows the antics of international diplomats who claim to belong to an organization loosely resembling the former UN called "the World Assembly." The show is produced in Omigodtheykilledkenny but has also gained followings in countries like Yelda, The Palentine, Krioval, Unibot, Mousebumples, Nullarni, and Cookesland. Originally aired on Kennyite television as "public affairs programming," the show was reformatted in 2009 after the Kennyite government admitted that the so-called "World Assembly" was not a legitimate world governing body, but a scam to fund Catherine Gratwick's fiendish schemes for world domination with member "donations". World Assembly is now billed as a "reality competition" not unlike The Apprentice, only instead of a corporate gig, the contestants compete for notoriety in world diplomacy.
Ratings have soared since the series' repackaging, while video clips from the show have become viral sensations -- including the Security Council's flooding, Susa Batko-Yovino's suicide attack, and the public inquest into Cobdenia's alleged pro-Nazi sympathies. Formerly obscure foreign personalities like Bob Flibble, Mongkha, Eduard Heir and the Thessadorian Ambassador are now household names in Omigodtheykilledkenny.
TV critics attribute World Assembly's success to the astounding recklessness and stupidity of WA delegates. Critic Tom Shales observed, "It doesn't happen often, but when Kennyites come across people who are even dumber and crazier than they are, they are mesmerized."
World Assembly originates on Omigodtheykilledkenny's K-SPAN network.
