‘United States’ is a Federal corporation, says U.S. Code, Title 28

Repeat after me, ‘United States’ is a Federal corporation. It’s right there in the federal code, in Title 28:

28 U.S. Code § 3002 – Definitions

As used in this chapter:

(15) “United States” means—

(A) a Federal corporation;
(B) an agency, department, commission, board, or other entity of the United States; or
(C) an instrumentality of the United States.

The congress of the U.S.ofA created a corporation and gave it the name ‘United States’ to fool everyone, as far as I am concerned.

If there is a court case involving United States or correspondence from United States, that party may be a corporation.

One might want to ask, ‘Which United States?” or “Is this the United States referenced in 28 USC 3002?

I must emphasize the clause, “As used in this chapter” that precedes all definitions on that page. The referenced chapter is ‘Chapter 176. FEDERAL DEBT COLLECTION PROCEDURE’. ‘United States’ may mean something else in other chapters and titles of the U.S. Code. Nonetheless, it is odd that there is a corporation named ‘United States’. Here is the full path of where to find the definition:


There are also more definitions of United States in Black’s Law Dictionary:

United States. This term has several meanings.

[1] It may be merely the name of a sovereign occupying the position analogous to that of other sovereigns in family of nations,

[2] it may designate territory over which sovereignty of United States extends, or

[3] it may be collective name of the states which are united by and under the Constitution. Hooven & Allison Co. v. Evatt, U.S. Ohio, 324 U.S. 652, 65 S.Ct. 870, 880, 89 L.Ed. 1252.

As stated in the Articles of Confederation, which is still law, the confederacy is called, “The United States of America.”

Article I.

The Style of this confederacy shall be “The United States of America.”

‘United States’ is not the same as ‘The United States of America’.

‘United States’ is also not the same as ‘United States, in Congress Assembled‘.

One reason congress may have created a corporation is to gain power or jurisdiction over the people who actually sit above the congress. We don’t have a king, so the people are sovereign. To circumvent this, congress created a corporation called United States, then creates franchises or sub-corporations using the ‘FIRST LAST’/’JOHN DOE’ name combination, and the parent corporation has jurisdiction over the subs.

When the living man, John of the Doe family, consents to being JOHN DOE he has mistakenly accepted the liability of the junior corporation and its debts! See the Bugs Bunny video.

I read somewhere that one should look at the corporations started by the congress as the clue to what is really going on. There are at least 17 federal corporations, such as U.S. Postal Service and FDIC. ‘United States’ is another one that is not mentioned as often.

I now also find it odd that congress would create a corporation called U.S. Postal Service. Why are some things services done by government while others are done by corporations owned by the government?

Now when I see ‘United States’ I will wonder what it means. When someone introduces the president of the United States, does that mean the president of the corporation? Is it so hard to add the words “of America”, as in “the president of The United States of America” or is “of America” intentionally omitted?

I will be adding this point to the popular court page. Please comment below.

  1. A comment via email: “Some people will say Title 28 doesn’t count because it’s about FDCP, but they bury definitions all the time. “
