The Incorporated States of Uniserve is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 35.054 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, with Industry, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Protiteria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Uniservean economy, worth an astonishing 39,244 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 1,119,549 unibucks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,806,034 per year while the poor average 116,967, a ratio of 49.6 to 1.

Not showing enough enthusiasm for mutual assured destruction is a court-martial offence, citizens know not to ask what their country can do for them but what they can do as chained slaves for their country, women earn less than half the salary of men if they can even find a job, and Tom and Jerry cartoons have cat and mouse resolving their problems with reasoned discussion. 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 11th in the world and 1st in Rejected Realms for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 33,952.46 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
