How many countries are part of the NATO organization, and how do these numbers compare to the United Nations?

I know there were originally 12 countries at the end of WWII, but I can't find how many nations/countries that are now part of NATO today. THANKS!

    NATO or North Atlantic Treaty Organization currently has 28 member countries.

    The UN or United Nations has 192 member nations. Generally any entity that is not a part of the UN is not accepted as sovereign by most of the world. The UN is a community of nations organized for many purposes, whereas NATO is mainly a military organization.
