The Civilization Committee (CC) is the GTA IV Era in-game equivalent of the United Nations.

Organization

Described as a "largely ineffective organization where representatives from nations around the world are supposed to decide on the best course of action in the event of an international conflict",[1] the CC's presence in the game is intended to satirize the various shortcomings of the United Nations in real life. The CC is ridiculed for doing little in international affairs, while organizing lavish meals (when parts of the world suffer from starvation) and failing to pay parking tickets.[1] For these reasons, the United States Administration "wisely" ignores the CC, and the view of their building from the Humboldt River is claimed to be more significant than the organization based inside.[1]

CC Building

The CC Building (based on the United Nations Headquarters in New York City) is the CC's headquarters in Liberty City, located in Hatton Gardens on the shore of the Humboldt River along Albany Avenue. The complex consists of a single tower, as well as various low-rise buildings and an assembly hall, similar to the UN headquarters. The complex also features a garden on the north end, where several outdoor sculptures are located.

The building is heavily guarded by the LCPD (armed with M4 Carbine assault rifles), implying the complex is a high security area where the player is not meant to enter. Entry into the complex (also known as trespassing) will result in a 4-star wanted level. Despite the dangers of entry into the complex, a unique stunt jump is situated within the area, where the player must jump off the roof of the complex's assembly hall and land in the garden below. The only civilians in the premises are the LSD cleaners maintaining the garden. Despite this, in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, there is no more police presence than elsewhere in the city, and pedestrians freely roam the complex.
