World Pulse Remix: All the Agents
Still headquartered out of New York City, New York in the United States of America, the United Nations was founded in 1945 to replace the defunct League of Nations. Since the increasing globalization of the late 1990s, the United Nations has essentially become a world-governing body. Individual countries still maintain their own sovereignty, but all typically answer to the United Nations in some way or another. Some nations thrive under this system, while others chafe at the restriction.
Though the United Nations has done much good, many question its current motives. Rampant crime and increasing surveillance lead many to question its effectiveness, and rumors still fly that Ness Montague is less a terrorist and more a scapegoat for some hidden agenda.
For its part, the United Nations seems to have done much to remove the threat of the Heaven Smile, though isolated attacks still continue. Despite the fact that it publicly decries the assassin craze, some still indicate that the U.N. knowingly made use of the shadowy Smith Syndicate to handle the Heaven Smile threat.
Only time will tell how it all ends.
