The United Nations could learn a thing or two from Ultra. Imagine how much more effective Ban Ki-moon would be in bright pink booty shorts that said Slut across the butt.

Hold up, Iran, before we drop these sanctions on your ass, allow me to drop the beat.

The people of Ultra would probably be more effective than the United Nations anyway. Picture it: Pointless policy debates would be resolved in the duration of a single song. War would become a thing of the past. Instead, countries would gather in massive, mile-wide circles to hash it out via dance off. And can you imagine how sick the remixes of each county's national anthem would be? Our ears tingle at thinking what Deadmau5 would do to "O Canada."

Let's see which countries came to represent at the United Nations of Ultra as we now take attendance of this coalition of the thrilling.

The people of this East Asian peninsular nation made some Ultra-appropriate modifications to their flag. Next order of business: air-dropping some PLUR over Kim Jong-un's palace.

Los puertorriqueños are a great addition to the United Nations of Ultra, because our UNU luncheons could really use some arroz con gandules.

The Nicas were reppin' loud and proud. But if you look at the right corner of the photo, you can see the delegate from the Cayman Islands throwing some serious shade Nicaragua's way.

No fighting, Cayman Islands! Don't make us take away your kandi credentials.

Even though this was an incomplete survey of the various nations in attendance at Ultra, we still feel good about these new world leaders. Because in the end, the United Nations of Ultra is about one thing and one thing only: love.

And butts. There are a lot of butts in the United Nations of Ultra.
