There was once a crosstalk I watched as a kid that went roughly like this - "Which is the biggest nation in the world?" "China." (-- in terms of population) "Wrong, it's the United Nations." My ability to get the joke notwithstanding, for quite some time I had taken for granted the role of the UN as some kind of an omnipotent governor of all nations, working its magic whenever things went wrong among its subordinates.
