The World Government (世界政府, Sekai Seifu) is a political organization comprised of the majority of the world at large, ruled by the Five Elders. The Marines serve as their primary military organization, headed by the Fleet Admiral, while the Cipher Pol operate behind the scenes, either through sabotage, reconnaissance, spying, espionage and/or assassination; their most powerful enemies are largely pirates and revolutionaries. The Commander-in-Chief oversees both the Marines and Cipher Pol, and is second only to the Five Elders.
