The United Nations was founded in 1945 as an international organization aimed to provide a place for international dialogue, facilitate cooperation in international law, international security, economic development, social progress and human rights, to stop wars, and to promote world peace.
It is the successor to the League of Nations, which was widely considered to have been ineffective in its role as an international governing body, which led to World War II. Its members include almost every independent nation in the world. Its headquarters are based in New York City, USA.
Relations between the United States and the United Nations soured in the early 21st century due to UN condemnation of unilateral American military actions in the Middle East. As the conflict against the GLA escalated, the United Nations attempted to maintain dialogue between the GLA and China, but both sides unilaterally refused to cooperate.
The United States initially refused to assist the United Nations beyond providing satellite surveillance, but was later forced to engage the GLA militarily as the terrorist organization stepped up its campaign of terror.
During the Second GLA War it is unknown what relations does the UN have with the Militarized EU and the APA, even its participation in the conflict is unknown.
In the Almaty Supply Raid, an American Commander joined a UN diplomat in channeling the organisation's funding to the region. However, this was quickly raided by a GLA Commander who successfully stole forty thousand American dollars from the convoys, C-130 cargo planes and civilians as he sent troops to locate the remainder of the supplies. Such supply crates were later acquired by the GLA, Chinese and American Commanders in their respective missions to fund their operations. In Zero Hour, UN Crates were still used as an alternate source of funding, such as during the Battle of Mogadishu.

In-Game[edit | edit source]
The UN is not a playable faction within the campaign or multiplayer, but can be seen throughout several missions either as a neutral or opposing force. UN-operated Humvees and infantrymen form the majority of the UN peacekeeping forces.
The status of the United Nations post-First GLA War is unknown, though it is likely greatly weakened due to its ineffectual actions during the war, as well as the rise of single-state entities like the militarized European Union and the China-led Asian-Pacific Alliance.

Red Alert universe[edit | edit source]
|The following is based on the Soviet campaign for Red Alert and might contradict canon.|
During the intro of Bridge over the River Vizchgoi, Colonel Nadia Zelenkov said that the United Nations had began to back the Allied cause. Stalin was not happy about it and wants them incinerated immediately before the Allies in Europe can be more stronger. When Zelenkov tells him about the truck convoy that is heading towards Croatia, Stalin tells the Commander to guard them with his life and take them carefully through Allied lines to their destination. If the Commander fails, he will not return to see Stalin and the whole Union of Soviet Socialist Republics will be behind his own back forever.
