La Fraternite des Nations, FN, or the Fraternity of Nations, is an international organisation whose aims are to maintain peace, promote human rights, promote cooperation in international disputes, and to serve as a platform for international dialogue.
The FN was formed in 1949 at the end of the Asia-Pacific War by the combatant nations as a means of preventing future conflicts. Since then, all of the recognised nations of the world -including all the superpowers- have become members.
All the members of the FN have a seat in la Chambre des Nations (the Chamber of Nations). The chamber is the main deliberative assembly of the FN, voting on important issues, such as recommendations on peace and international security, the elections of members to organs of the FN, admission, suspension and expulsion of member states, and monetary issues. The chamber meets in regular yearly sessions. Meetings of the chamber are presided over by the Secretariat, who is elected by the member-states every five years.
La Chambre des Superpuissances (the Chamber of Superpowers) is charged with maintaining peace, goodwill, security and the balance of power between all nations of the world. The chamber is made up of the world's five major powers: France, India, Russia, the Sino-Japanese Empire, and Brazil. All the members of the chamber are nuclear armed. At least two members of la Chamber des Superpuissances must oppose a Chambre des Nations resolution for it to be vetoed.
The FN has many specialized organs and institutions each of which deals with a particular issue.
- World Court: A universal court to determine cases of international law, as well as trying war criminals and people who have committed crimes against humanity.
- FN Security Force: The military arm of the FN, used in peacekeeping operations around the world, under the authority of the Chambre des Superpuissances. The force is made up of contributions from member nations, who operate on a five-year roster.
- The International Bank: A financial institution that lends money to developing countries for infrastructural and environmental work, as well as regulating international finance.
- FN Atomic Energy Commissariat: Promotes peaceful use of Atomic energy worldwide. Assists in nuclear disarmament and keeps track of nuclear weapon proliferation.
- FN Food Commission: The food aid arm of the FN, distributed food aid worldwide. Helps communities find ways to provide food for themselves through agricultural initiatives.
- International Health Organisation (IHO): Acts as a coordinating authority in international public health, in addition to providing medical staff and supplies to areas affected by war, famine, disease and natural disasters.
- FN Commission for Refugees and Internally Displaced Persons (FNCRI): Protects and assists refugees and internally displaced persons by establishing safe camps and providing basic sanitation, sustenance, and medical help, often in conjunction with the IHO.
Current Peacekeeping Missions
The FN Security Force is currently engaged in several peacekeeping missions around the world.
- FN Mission to Britain: Since the ceasefire at the end of the British Spring conflict in early 2014, 30,000 peacekeeping troops have maintained a presence in both the FN-administered Neutral and De-Militarised Zone and in the more volatile regions of the Kingdom of Britain.
- The FN Mission to Neapolitan Africa: Deployed during the First Neapolitan African Civil War, the force has remained there since then.
