The United Nations (WIP / Details Pending)
The United Nations acts as the representative assembling body of all nations on Earth, and through its General Assembly, the nations of the world all convene on issues which affect all of the world.
Of particular note is the United Nations Security Council (Short: UNSC), through which the global members of the world's premiere superpowers discuss pressing security concerns. The five permanent members of the UNSC are: The USSR, the UK, France, the USA, and China
Although the UN does not claim any official territory, the headquarters of the United Nations currently resides in New York City.
- Pre-Visitation: Formed as the successor to the failed League of Nations, the United Nations was codified and formed in 1945 as a means to preserve global cooperation in the era to follow, and with it, to preserve a lasting peace.

Although the balance of alliances throughout the globe had forever been changed by the visitation, peace between the major powers of the world had - to the UN's credit - by in large been kept.
- Recent History: Like the world's nations it is comprised of, the United Nations has, perhaps against the odds, weathered the storm of the Visitation. In spite of the tumult of most - if not all - of its member states, the UN has done its duty of preventing a global war between the major powers.
The issues of the globe are the issues of the United Nations, and likewise, the concerns of the world's welfare in the face of the ever-changing world are at the forefront of the UN's issues. True to its name, the UN primarily provides extensive welfare, development, and security missions in the most conflict-afflicted regions throughout the world.
Of particular note, international terrorist organizations have been at the forefront of the UN's peacekeeping efforts, and the United Nation's Mission For Peace is an international cooperative mission to attempt to curb the influence of these such institutions.
