# Boutros Boutros-Ghali (1991-1996): Formerly [[UsefulNotes/{{Egypt}} Egyptian]] Foreign Minister. Noted for his funny name, love of French culture (he was later Secretary-General of ''La Francophonie'') and [[BreadEggsMilkSquick ignoring the Rwandan Genocide]]. Oops. A failure to do fix dysfunction in the UN anything even ''after'' the Genocide was over and everyone had taken their lumps earned him the ire of the United States, which led an effort to "do him in," in the unfortunate wording of one of the American diplomats responsible. Others claim that he was too critical of the US tendancy of wanting the UN to always agree with them [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney because they donate the most money]], who subsequently got rid of him. So far the only one-term Secretary-General. Noted in the UK for being suckered into a fake interview with Creator/SachaBaronCohen on ''DaAliGShow'', where Ali kept referring to him as Boutros Boutros Boutros Boutros-Ghali.

# Kurt Waldheim (1971-1981): An [[UsefulNotes/{{Austria}} Austrian]] diplomat, he campaigned for the position and got it despite initial Chinese and British reservations. Sought a third term, but the Chinese put the kibosh on that. Largely unremarked, but later accused of having committed war crimes while in [[NazisWithGnarlyWeapons the Wehrmacht]]. Went on to become the (ceremonial) President of Austria all the same.

# [[AwesomeMcCoolname Dag Hammarskjöld]] which translates as "Day Hammershield" (1952-1961): A minor [[UsefulNotes/{{Sweden}} Swedish]] diplomat and public intellectual before his election, he earned universal acclaim for his diplomatic skills and calls for calm in some of the scariest years of the UsefulNotes/ColdWar. He drew flak from the USSR in his second term for his deep involvement in trying to solve a major political crisis in the [[UsefulNotes/DemocraticRepublicOfTheCongo Belgian Congo]]; the Soviets were later forced to eat crow, however, as he [[NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead died in a plane crash]] in Northern Rhodesia (now UsefulNotes/{{Zambia}}) while on a peacekeeping mission in Congo. UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy called him "the greatest statesman of the century."
# U Thant (1961-1971): A noted [[UsefulNotes/{{ThatSouthEastAsianCountry}} Burmese]] diplomat, U Thant fascinated everyone who isn't Burmese by having a name like "U". (It's not his name; it's an honorific title. "Thant" is his ''only'' name.) He was originally elected to fill out the remaining few months of Hammarskjöld's term, but as it turns out, everyone liked him; he had a hand in defusing the UsefulNotes/{{Cuban Missile Crisis}} (often overlooked), and in handling the end of the aforementioned civil war in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and made a good (if behind-closed-doors) run at trying to get [[UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar North Vietnam and the US]] to the table (although eventually the [[UsefulNotes/LyndonJohnson Johnson Administration]] decided not to go through with it). Also, being from a non-aligned and (at the time) democratic and relatively prosperous Asian country helped his popularity. The only real blight on his record was his agreement to withdraw the UN peacekeeping forces from the Sinai in the leadup to the [[UsefulNotes/ArabIsraeliConflict Six-Day War]]; however, that wasn't entirely his fault, and in any case that entire war was [[FawltyTowersPlot an embarrassing farce for nearly everyone involved]]. He got two full terms, and could have had a third but [[{{Cincinnatus}} declined]].

# Kofi Annan (1997-2006): A [[UsefulNotes/{{Ghana}} Ghanaian]] UN civil servant before his election. Probably the highest-profile Secretary-General since Hammarskjöld, elected in the wake of the removal of the disgraced Boutros-Ghali. Annan was at first expected to complete the "African" term (to 2001) started by Boutros-Ghali, but despite some snafus (like the aforementioned Oil-for-Food thing), Annan was well-liked and effective enough to win a second term. He made wide use of the Secretary-General's power of the "bully pulpit", drawing attention to neglected issues.

The UN consists of many parts. The General Assembly and the Security Council are the most well known. The General Assembly is much like the U.S. Congress, specifically the Senate: every nation gets one vote (unless you were the Soviet Union, then you got three [[note]]One vote for the Soviet Union, one vote for the Ukraine and one for Byelorussia (now Belarus). Stalin originally wanted all sixteen of the Soviet Republics to get a vote on the theory that the Soviet constitution was a treaty between sovereign states. UsefulNotes/HarryTruman more or less said, "Well, the US Constitution was originally a treaty between sovereign states, so each one of the 48 (at the time) should get a vote." Stalin shut up after that, but the Ukrainian and Byelorussian [=SSRs=] got votes because the US was feeling nice and didn't want the USSR to feel that it was getting short shrift (the US had way more allies at the time than did the Soviet Union).[[/note]] due to the agreements made when joining the U.N. (And yes, they always voted the same way.)) The Security Council is where the real power is. Since 1966, the Security Council has had 15 members made up of five permanent members (commonly called the Permanent Five or [=P5=] for short) and ten rotating countries elected for two-year terms by the General Assembly. Only the Security Council can take military action. Much of the "weakness" of the UN is due to the fact that any permanent member (US, UK, Russia, China, France) can veto any Security Council resolution simply by voting against it. The theory was that because Security Council resolutions are (theoretically) binding, it would not be reasonable for one of the Big Five to be forced, by law, to act against its interests. Permanent members which wish to express displeasure with a resolution but don't see much use in pissing everyone off by vetoing it tend to abstain; that way, they don't vote ''for'' the resolution, but they also didn't vote ''against'' it (which would be a veto). This wasn't written into the Charter, but became generally accepted as a solution to a common problem (a [=P5=] not wanting to destroy a resolution because it didn't care about it ''that'' much, but also reticent to be seen to support it).

# Trygve Lie (1946-1952): Formerly Norwegian foreign minister, he pissed off the Soviets shortly before the end of his first term; it didn't help that Norway joined UsefulNotes/{{NATO}} when it was founded in 1949.
