The Democratic Order of Planets (known commonly by its acronym, DOOP) is a collective organization of planets who gather together to provide a limited sort of shared governance. The extent of their real authority is unknown, but they have been compared to the United Nations, or the Federation from Star Trek.

They were briefly housed in a four hundred billion dollar ($400,000,000,000) space station orbiting the Neutral Planet, which was destroyed by Zapp Brannigan during the ceremony to celebrate its completion (2ACV02). Afterwards, they returned to their former, somewhat derelict headquarters in Weehauken, New Jersey.

The DOOP maintains a fleet of ships which, under the direction of Zapp Brannigan, captain of the flagship Nimbus, engage in a variety of humanitarian conquests (2ACV17), as well as occassionally being called in to defend a member planet (1ACV12)

Known Officials & Officers

New DOOP headquarters

Known Member Races & Planets

Although an Omicronian is seen during the trial of DOOP v. Zapp, he isn't wearing an orange sash, so it can be assumed that Omicronians are not members of the DOOP (which explains their frequent war-like behaviour).

Trivia

DOOP Rot.gif
  • The DOOP logo is a rotational ambigram, which means that it appears the same upside-down as it would normally. This may be an important aspect of logos meant to be used in space, as there is no traditional "up" or "down".
  • Apparently, members of DOOP can declare war on each other, as with the Decapodian invasion of Earth
