The UN in Soviet World Rule is generally powerless, and has no major say in world politics. The reason of this is that the United States and the Soviet Union are building up nuclear weapons and their military, and seemingly both sides secretly hoping that no action on either the nuclear weapons or the Military will happen. When the UN tries to suggest a peace pact, or a similar agreement, neither country listens. Instead, the countries take their own course of action. However, the UN isn't totally worthless to some political scientists and neutral Military officials. They make the argument that the UN Security Council has so far kept the two sides from going to war by creating the aforementioned pacts. They argue the existence of these pacts and meetings between the two nations slow down the bureaucracy both countries have to prevent war.
