Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Incorporated States of Uniserve is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, vat-grown people, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 27.991 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, 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 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Uniservean economy, worth an astonishing 32,008 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 1,143,532 unibucks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,841,920 per year while the poor average 174,469, a ratio of 27.8 to 1.

The government is suspected of mass disappearing dissidents both at home and abroad, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', and the government has the power to seize property at will. 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 409th in the world and 2nd in Rejected Realms for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 45,901.94 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
