The United Federation is the supreme ruling body of the world. Initially the federation was formed to help the superpowers of the world protect their shared interests. However, after the fall of Eurasia, the remnants of the world's governments all banded together into the federation to reform it into the United Federation.
The Federation regulates the resources of the world and sees to the security of it's member states. It also has authority over the Maverick Hunters and other similar armed forces. The supreme authority of the Federation lies with it's council. Based in Zurich, Switzerland the council holds meetings to decide the course of the world.
