The Advanced Extranormal Containment and Investigation Force (AECIF) is fielded and operated under the United Nations Security Council.
The United Nations was formed in the aftermath of World War II. It is a successor to the failed League of Nations, serving the same purpose as an international regulatory body to unify the countries of Earth in a common purpose.
In 1948 the United Nations ratified the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights, declaring that all humanoids are to be and should be equal under the law in all signatory countries. This document however was not legally binding, though states such as the Elvish Kingdom of Tralar appreciated the gesture and expressed their approval.
In the 1960s the United Nations approved for the Kingdom of Tralar to be isolated from the modern world at their own request, allowing NATO and the European Union powers to construct a border wall around the Elf kingdom to restrict access.
In the 1980s, the United Nations became embroiled in a desperate crisis as countries globally experienced parahuman uprisings during the Type-III Awakening Incident. During this turbulent time in world history the United Nations proved instrumental and extremely important on unifying its members states to act against the ongoing threat and to develop contingency and action plans to combat the rising threat and to enact damage control that had already resulted from violent, unchecked parahuman activity.
In 1991, the United Nations proposed and ratified the 1991 Type-III Regulatory Treaty which was signed by a majority of its member states, notable exceptions to this including the United States, China, many African countries, and for a time, the Soviet Union.
Modern Day Edit
The United Nations continues to serve as the international coalition for cooperation and mediation between countries on Earth. It regularly undertakes humanitarian initiatives and is often considered the face of the international community, as the United Nations is the body in which nations can express grievances, praise or condemn others. All countries on Earth with few exceptions are involved in some capacity with the UN.
Due to the 1991 treaty and the AECIF, the United Nations is the foremost authority on parahumans and supernatural incidents, though this has been criticized by many politicians and citizens of its member states.
The United Nations has several different components and divisions within its structure that carry out different tasks and are entrusted with differing responsibilities. The headquarters of the United Nations is currently in New York City, United States. Despite being in New York, the ground upon which the headquarters is built is not considered to be a part of the USA and is classified as International Territory. Additional headquarters exist in Geneva, in the European Union.
UN General Assembly Edit
The UN General Assembly is the main regulatory and legislative body of the organization, and consists of delegates from over 195 members states. In the General Assembly international issues are discussed and resolutions are proposed to address ongoing events and areas of conflict.
UN Peacekeeping Forces Edit
UN Peacekeepers are dispatched throughout the world to respond to crises that befall its member states and to restore order to areas stricken by warfare, political destabilization, high crime and lack of proper law enforcement or troubled areas of military conflict. The UN Peacekeepers were crucial to helping restore order during the frenzy of the parahuman uprising.
The UN Peacekeepers consist of military personnel from its member states, and are sent in with the approval of the UN Security Council.
UN Security Council Edit
The UN Security council oversees responses to key international emergencies and conflicts, and is charged with oversight of ACEIF. The United States, Soviet Union, and China are permanent members of the UN Sec Council.
Advanced Extranormal Containment and Investigation Force EditThe Advanced Extranormal Containment and Investigation Force is a United Nations agency dedicated to containing the threat of parahumans and keeping a vigilant watch over any powered activity occurring within its jurisdiction, which consists of all member states that have signed the 1991 Type-III Regulatory Treaty.
The AECIF prioritizes global stability in its missions, and has the objective of researching and regulating Type-III individuals with the goal of preventing another disastrous Awakening Incident.
