The United Planets (or "UP" in abbreviated form) is a governing body, active in the 30th and 31st Century.


It was originally composed of Earth and a large number of other planets in the Milky Way Galaxy. Its jurisdiction has never been determined, as at times, it seems to extend beyond the Milky Way and into other galaxies.

The Legion of Super-Heroes and Science Police, along with other armed forces services defend this interstellar nation.

The governing body, called the United Planets Inner Council, appears to have five members: the President of Earth and the heads of government of four other planets. One of those members serves as the president of the United Planets.

The capital of the United Planets is Superman's hometown of Metropolis, on the North American continent on Earth. The population of the United Planets was 300 billion but this later recanonized to be a population of 1.2 trillion by the time the legion first formed and many more quadrillion's of sentients outside sol. Later, much of the government and bureaucracy of the United Planets moved to Weber's World, an artificial world constructed for this purpose.
