The United Nations, abbreviated UN, is the governing body of Earth and Luna, and one of the two superpowers of the Sol system and humanity's extra-solar colonies. Currently, it is the only nation that claims ownership over territory outside of Sol.
It was founded in 1945 after World War II as an international organization facilitating cooperation in, among other areas, international law. Over time, the international organization has transformed itself into more of a government, with its own military and administration. It is led by the elected Secretary-General.
Secretary-General: Chrisjen Avasarala (interim)

When the Donnager is destroyed by what is believed to be OPA ships, and Mars declares war on the Belt the UN stays neutral. Later when Holden released information on the ships that destroyed the Donnager were actually made on Earth, United Nations Navy ships fired on Martian Congressional Republic Navy ships in Mars' orbit and destroyed the Deimos deep radar station. The MCRN then orders their ships in the system to return to Mars and declares war on Earth.
