The Incorporated States of Uniserve is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, enslaved workforce, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 29.428 billion Uniserveans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Healthcare, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Protiteria. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Uniservean economy, worth an astonishing 34,469 trillion unibucks a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 1,171,303 unibucks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,429,113 per year while the poor average 152,159, a ratio of 35.7 to 1.

Artists regularly face criminal charges and art-burning parties are common, dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, tourist operators promise visitors tours of live burning shipwrecks and plane crash sites, and citizens rise at daybreak every day for mandatory exercise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Uniserve's national animal is the origami animal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Brand Worship.

Uniserve is ranked 1,495th in the world and 1st in Rejected Realms for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 527.54 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
