The Democratic Order of Planets (DOOP) is a major galactic organization of planetary states in significant areas of the universe, who pool their military and political resources, while largely retaining their unique culture or societies.

It is very similar in both intent and function to the United Federation of Planets from Star Trek, though it appears to be far less effective (in both politics and warfare) than its Star Trek counterpart.


During 3001, in "Brannigan, Begin Again" the DOOP had finished a new headquarters space station over the Neutral Planet to replace their antiquated and run-down headquarters in New New Jersey. However, during the opening ceremony, this space station was accidentally destroyed by one of their officers, Zapp Brannigan, and thereafter DOOP reverted to their previous headquarters in New New Jersey.

In "The Beast with a Billion Backs", tentacles through the Anomaly appeared in 3008 and the Democratic Order of Planets (DOOP) sent a fleet of different members ships led by Zapp Brannigan to counter the threat, however, DOOP failed and the tentacles begin to attack everyone in the universe beginning with Decapod 10 and Mars, before attaching themselves to everyone.


DOOP has a large military force that polices the space of its member states. Among its assets are a large number of soldiers and a fleet of ships, which are used to defend its members from attack and to defeat their enemies.

The military seems to be similar to that of the Earth's United Nations in that it is composed of the militaries of its member planets such as Earth Army, rather than having a single, unified force. In "The Beast with a Billion Backs", Earth seems to be one of the largest contributors in the DOOP military. The flagship of the DOOP, the Nimbus, commanded by 25-Star General Zapp Brannigan, is stationed on Earth, though it often travels to other places in the universe during the course of its duties. Along with this they have some energy rifles that must be crank operated, complete with Jack-in-a-box music.
