The United Planets is a fictional governing body, traditionally depicted as active in the 30th and 31st Century.


The United Planets (or "UP" in abbreviated form) is usually shown as being composed of Earth and a large number of other planets in the Milky Way Galaxy. Several published accounts have shown the United Planets' jurisdiction as extending beyond our Galaxy into others, although this aspect has been inconsistently addressed by writers and editors over the decades.

The Legion of Super-Heroes defends this interstellar nation. There is a governing body called the United Planets Inner Council that 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 is about 300 billion. In later stories, it is stated that much of the government and bureaucracy of the United Planets is on Weber's World, an artificial world constructed for this purpose.


Among the enemies of the United Planets are:
