The Incorporated States of Uniserve is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, triple-decker prams, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 32.873 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 are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Protiteria. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Uniservean economy, worth an astonishing 39,767 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 1,209,734 unibucks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,973,710 per year while the poor average 276,185, a ratio of 14.4 to 1.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, Uniservean soldiers are assured their new ray-guns will finally power up after the next round of ominous chanting, a baby's first breath is also a baby's first felony, and the Farmer's Almanac is the most popular college textbook. 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 5,182nd in the world and 1st in Rejected Realms for Most Influential, scoring 8,980 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
