The United Nations actively worked to restore peace during international crises but ultimately was not successful, disbanding on July 26, 2052. United Nations President Sakugama Okiri made a statement lamenting the events. Its former headquarters in New York City peaked the interest of several organizations who began the bidding process on the prime real estate shortly thereafter.

- Fallout Bible 0: "2052 May–July The United Nations, already suffering, begins to collapse. In a series of heated debates, many nations withdraw from the organization as the UN tries to keep the peace. At the end of July, the United Nations is disbanded."
