* In a plot-swinging United Security debate on North Korea's invasion of South Korea in ''RedPhoenix'', the US Ambassador provides evidence of Soviet pilots flying against the US on North Korea's side, with Soviet backing. In the vote that follows, the US and USSR can't vote (they're parties to the dispute) and the Chinese, who were expected to veto a resolution on the matter as they're also arming North Korea, ''abstain''. [[spoiler: China eventually engineers a coup in the DPRK and a cease-fire]].
* In ''LeftBehind'', the United Nations (now headed by the Antichrist) is portrayed as an organization that pretty much rules the world already.

* In ''[[AlphaCentauri SidMeier's Alpha Centauri]]'', the Peacekeepers are a combination of the remnants of the United Nations personnel and others devoted to democratic and humanitarian ideals on the starship ''Unity'', united under one group when the population of the ship broke up into different ideological factions. They effectively form a new UN on Planet after landing, though they are effectively just one of the seven factions with no official control over the others. The Peacekeepers do, however, have serious political capital, giving them an edge in elections when an international council is eventually established (i.e. each other faction gets one vote per unit of population, while the Peacekeepers get two per unit of population).
