United Serbia (Serbian: Јединствена Србија / Jedinstvena Srbija) is a political party in Serbia, based in Jagodina. It was previously a close ally of New Serbia, and was a member of its coalition with the Democratic Party of Serbia.

In the 2008 parliamentary election United Serbia won three seats as part of the coalition with the Socialist Party of Serbia and the Party of United Pensioners of Serbia. After the election coalition held unsuccessful talks with former partners Democratic Party of Serbia on forming the parliamentary majority. United Serbia was the first to announce the beginning of talks with the coalition For a European Serbia, led by the President Boris Tadić, on forming the new government.

The party leader is Dragan Marković, Mayor of Jagodina.
