The United Antarctic Organization (UAO) or simply United Antarctic Nations (UAN) is an international organization who interfere (with permission) in the penguin law, government, security, rights & many more. They also keep the countries organized and have a right to handle them in the right they have. The UAN was founded in 1959, after the collapse of the failed League of Antarctic Nations, but started out unrecognized. The founder, Corai's father, started the UAN to keep everything in check, and to promote creature's rights. Many countries have joined the organization, a testament to its authority.
There are currently dozens of countries, states & cities that follow in the steps of the United Antarctic Nations, almost every one. The government-run organization help in improving the countries as much as they can. They accept worldwide languages, but English is primarily spoken during assemblies. There are "Representatives" for almost every country, city & state that has a membership in the United Antarctic Nations.

League of Antarctic Nations (1918 - 1956)
The League of Antarctic Nations was the predecessor to the UAN, and it was founded in 1918 after the Khanzem War by Sir Willman Tabernaclemountain. It consisted of a few member states, including Puffle'and, Frankterre, Poleland, and a few others. In the 1950's, the League's influence started dropping during the height of Olde Antarctica, and many nations began withdrawing as the League lost its main branch in what used to be Poleland. Soon, the League lost total influence and all the nations withdrew.

Founding of the UAN (1959)
In 1959, Corai's father decided to start another League of Nations, and opted for more to join this time. So, he founded the United Antarctic Nations. Unlike the League of Antarctic Nations, the UAN would have many branches, and would have headquarters all over Antarctica. Unlike the League, which only had one main HQ in Poleland, which collapsed, and led to the downfall of the League. Corai's father made a trip all over Antarctica, gaining support for the Union, and eventually got enough countries to join. However, it was never officiated as an actual Antarctic organization, and therefore held no real sway on Antarctic politics; it was nothing more than a platform for dialogue.
Early UAN (1959 - 2006)
During the times of the early UAN, it wasn't an official international organization, but no more than what was often referred to as an all-inclusive "club" of nations. So, during the times of the early UAN, the organization was nicknamed "The Club". More countries were part of the early UAN than there were in the collapsed League. The UAN also sold an image of something much more open, and united other than a "league", which felt closed off and exclusive. The UAN also had something the League didn't: Representatives. Representatives for each country could provide closer dialogue, and easier ways of making decisions peacefully.
The early UAN was founded on the basis of keeping "all the nations in check", and trying to prevent wars, along with keeping all of them together. At this time, there was no evidence that the UAN had any goals to stand up for penguin and puffle rights, or equality among countries.

Modern UAN (2006 - present)
In 2006, the USA decided that, with its prowess and undisputed power over all of Antarctica, that it'd draft the UAN as an international organization. With this drafting, the UAN wrote up its own constitution stating about penguin and puffle rights, and their mission statement. With this, all UAN members were swept from the council, and all nations were encouraged to join again. Not many did, and some took many years to rejoin, sometimes by choice, sometimes by pressure from their allies and/or enemies.
The Security Council has the power to make major decisions involving Antarctic politics.
The Main Powers have a reasonably strong foothold in Antarctic politics, with the ability to veto any proposals raised to the Security Council.

The Influence Powers may not have as strong a grip on Antarctican politics as the Main Powers, but their opinion in international issues on security still matter. Unlike the Main Powers, they do not have the power to veto proposals.

Membership into the UAN is open to sovereign countries only. As long as the country has its own government and is recognized by the majority of the Antarctic world, the nation is able to be part of the council. All nations are welcome to be part of the organization, since they do not judge countries based on their political/economic systems. Bad behavior or waging war does not disqualify a nation; in order to quit, the nation must be willing to.

Coat of Arms
The UAN is involved in keeping peace within the Antarctic, even though it doesn't always work out. Its purpose was to prevent arms races, and wars that involve the entire Antarctic continent from erupting, though it often has shortcomings.
