From Harlon City Server
(Redirected from United Nations)

The United Nations is an inter-server organization. The organization consists of member states, which are governments from different servers.

The United Nations was created on March 9, 2021, as a staff-led effort to hold Olympic games between multiple servers. This effort consisted of an informal discord to facilitate communication between staff and government. The original members included the Republic of Stratham and the Commonwealth of Redmont. Later that year, the Federation of Harlon established a delegation to the discord in November 2021. The formal establishment of a United Nations charter and governance structure was not created until April 2022. Since June 2022, the United Nations has elected a General Secretariat to manage the organization.

Since the establishment of a Charter, the United Nations has been governed by a General Assembly, where each member state gets 1 (one) vote on matters of international importance. The United Nations controversially struggles with activity, given the inwards foreign policy outlook of many governments. Most governments focus on their own server rather than trying to be diplomatic with other servers.

General Secretariat[edit]

The role of the General Secretariat is to serve as Chair of the General Assembly. As Chair, they facilitate and administer the discord and procedures of the United Nations.

As of October 2023, the current list of General Secretaries are:
User Representative from Tenure
LavenderxBlaxii Redmont July 10, 2022 - August 31, 2022
Intercepticon Stratham August 31, 2022 - November 9, 2022

Westray Harlon January 5, 2023 - September 3, 2023
Nilowitsch WIPU September 3, 2023 - Present

The Charter outlines that the General Secretariat is elected every two months, however this has not been strictly followed. Some individuals have been re-elected, and the General Assembly has also forgone holding elections at times.

Olympic Games[edit]

As of October 2023, the United Nations has currently planned four Olympic Games (or Olympiads).

  • September - November 2021, hosted by Redmont
  • February - March 2022, hosted by Stratham
  • August 2022 (cancelled), hosted by Redmont
  • May - June 2023, hosted by Harlon

Some of the games played include King of the Hill, Hockey, Soccer, Basketball, PvP Boxing, Elytra Gliding, Chess, Spleef, and Paintball.

Harlon's Role in the United Nations[edit]

The Federation of Harlon has had a growing role in the United Nations in the past year. Delegations to the United Nations from Harlon are led by the Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs. Since the election of the Harlon Progress Party, the government has prioritized advocacy for admitting other servers such as Limaru to the United Nations.


Membership to the United Nations is based on the admission process outlined in the organization's charter. From there, each government has to ratify the Charter in their own state.

As of October 2023, the current list of member states are:
State Ratification Date
Republic of Stratham May 2022
Commonwealth of Redmont May 2022
Federation of Harlon June 2022
Democratic Republic of Vindex Nation June 2022 (disputed)
