In 39 U.S. Code § 201, this 'established' United States Postal Service. Wikipedia refers to this as an 'agency' but is it actually a corporation? The code says it is an 'independent' establishment. To me, that means something completely separate and not part of the federal/contract government. 

My question is, did 39 USC 201 create the USPS the corporation? 

For more context, this quote confirms USPS is a separate entity/corporation. 

“USPS operations will not be interrupted due to the Gov’t shutdown, & all Post Offices will remain open for business as usual. Because we are an independent entity that is funded through the sale of our products & services, & not by tax dollars, USPS will not be impacted.”

Search Dunn and Bradstreet to identify whether or not it is indeed a corporation.

@hamilton435 Thanks. I found it on D&B here. The DBA is "US Post Office". 

I also found DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, here, but it does not show a DBA.

Federal Government is most definitely a corporation. Clearly identified in USC codes.

Yes, I agree UNITED STATES is a corporation. I'm trying to find the act that created the corporation. I found the act for USPS.

This essay, Federal Government Corporations - An Overview, has a list of federal corporations on the last page along with the act or code section that created the corporation. I'm trying to find the act/code that created UNITED STATES.

Or I want to find the corporate charter or W9 that states DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA is doing business as UNITED STATES. USPS does business as US POST OFFICE!

Check for The Act of 1871

Also check for The Act of 1871 being repealed around 1874... and then later The Act of 1877 being where the vermin continued their frauds.
