NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organisation) was an alliance of nations including the USA, Canada and the United Kingdom. It was formed to defend Western Europe against the USSR.

The Warsaw Pact was the USSR's response to NATO. It was similarly an alliance of nations and was made of the USSR and the Communist Eastern European countries it occupied.
