Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Incorporated States of Uniserve is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory vegetarianism, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 28.682 billion Uniserveans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Healthcare, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Protiteria. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Uniservean economy, worth an astonishing 33,758 trillion unibucks a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 1,176,980 unibucks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,822,329 per year while the poor average 273,262, a ratio of 14.0 to 1.

Fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government, the Farmer's Almanac is the most popular college textbook, the nation's interest in space is at an all-time high while interest in saving the planet is at an all-time low, and a stocking with a crooked seam or a tie without a full Windsor knot are grounds for instant dismissal. 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 75th in the world and 1st in Rejected Realms for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 41,776.47 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
