The United Nations is a globalist organization of countries all over the world, originally created to facilitate cooperation in international law, international security, economic development, and human rights. It was founded in 1945 in San Francisco at the signing of the United Nations Charter by 51 countries, replacing the League of Nations, founded in 1919. The UN currently has 192 members, including almost all the countries in the world. Non-members include Taiwan and Vatican City. Switzerland finally joined in 2002. The United Nations typically supports liberal, environmental and even socialist ideals.
The term "United Nations" was widely used during World War II to denote the allied powers making war against Germany and Japan, but the actual UN was created in 1945. It was designed by the U.S. State Department. President Franklin D. Roosevelt envisaged "four policemen", Britain, United States, Soviet Union, and Republic of China to be the major forces on what later became the UN Security Council to enforce the peace worldwide. This was deemed a modern approach to replace the old spheres of influence as they were called during the age of Imperialism.
US Secretary of State Cordell Hull said at the time while selling the idea to Congress, "there will no longer be need for spheres of influence, for alliances, for balance of power, or any other of the separate alliances through which in the unhappy past the nations strove to safeguard their security or promote their interest."
