The United Provinces Interstellar Corps (Mavibi: Ulussi Disarenada) is the United Provinces federal agency tasked with space exploration. Distinct from the larger and younger United Provinces Navy, the Interstellar Corps, until the United Province's remilitarisation and the Defence Force's establishment in the late 5th century TE, also was the nation's primary line of defence. Today, the Corps still provides some defence capability, but it is only mobilised for that purpose in emergency situations. Its primary mission is to explore uncharted regions of space, assist with the scientific advancement of the nation, and to form and strengthen diplomatic ties between the United Provinces and its galactic neighbours in cooperation with the Foreign Service.

Unlike the Defence Force, the Interstellar Corps is staffed by ordinary citizens (as opposed to bio-engineered personnel), and is not as strictly hierarchical as its military counterpart. It is organisationally separate from the military too, and reports to the United Provinces Secretariat for Exploration, as opposed to the Secretariat for Defence or the Vashkurum. The Corps' highest operational authority is the Interstellar Corps Central Committee, whose members are elected by all Corps personnel.
