League of Nations circa 2115

Is it reasonable to assume that barring catastrophe Weinbaum would have expected the League of Nations would still be around at the time his stories are set, circa 2110-15?

There are very slight hints of a space police service of sorts in The Red Peri; should I think of them as run by the League, or as company police run by the Interplanetary Corporation?

Later Never mind - I just reread the opening of The Red Peri and realised that Weinbaum describes "a blunt little League rocket" coming to the rescue of a ship after it was attacked by pirates, which I think answers both questions - The League of Nations runs the space fleet!
