The World Assembly (often referred to as the WA) is the world's governing body, and as an international organization is the successor to the United Nations, which was dissolved on April 1, 2008. The WA has assumed completely the UN's former role in the game, as a legislative body for debating and enacting international law, and as a tool for exerting regional control. Since June 2009, the WA has been divided into two branches: the General Assembly, which passes laws that take effect in all member states, and the Security Council, created for the purpose of enriching the gameplay side of WA politics.
