Overview Policies 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 pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 29.049 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 receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Protiteria. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Uniservean economy, worth an astonishing 33,856 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 1,165,479 unibucks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,019,565 per year while the poor average 172,663, a ratio of 29.1 to 1.

Speaking out against the government is punishable by flogging, the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, personal injury lawyers are demanding compensation from the government after recent reductions in manufacturer liability, and the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year. 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 179,240th in the world and 47th in Rejected Realms for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 2.07 Tourists Per Hour.
