Today the 5 permanent members of the Security Council are:
The United States of America, The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, The People's Republic of China, The Russian Federation, and The French Republic.
This is a change from the original members. After WWII, the members were:
The United States of America, The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, The Republic of China (Taiwan), The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (Soviet Union), and The French Republic.Source(s): UN Charter: Article 23, Paragraph 1

The five nations were the United States of America, Great Britain, France, China, and the Soviet Union(now Russia).
The reason these countries became the members was because they were the allies that won the war, and they all had nuclear weapons when the Security Council was formed in 1948.
At the present time they are all members and each has veto power, but there are other nations that rotate on the Security Council for limited terms.Source(s): un.org
