Nothing happens. Anywhere. Because the reality you're attempting to describe cannot possibly exist. An unstoppable force cannot exist (or you couldn't stop it from being able to stop itself). An immovable object could exist logically, although not under knwon physics. The existence of both however is definitely impossible.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

The unstoppable3 force transmutes into a conspiracy theory and the immovable object decays into a 33rd degree Freemason and Illuminati.

The situation never occurs; this is a pointless counter-factual.

What happens when a force that wishes itself to be unstoppable and has the capacity to be unstoppable from external means meets an object which wishes itself to be immovable and has the capacity to be immovable from external means?

Long wordy slightly less contradictory answer. Still a problem though ;)

They both lose. Let's consider physics. An immovable object would have an infinite mass. An unstoppable force would have infinite mass and infinite acceleration (F=MxA).

So what we have here is one infinitely large object colliding into another infinitely large object at an infinite velocity. The result would be complete obliteration of both objects, thereby moving the immovable object and stopping the unstoppable force.

There are other factors you can play with that will alter this outcome (like density), but otherwise this is the result as I figure it.
If you're reading this, you're awesome and you should feel awesome.

The unstoppable force overdoses and the immovable object goes nowhere.

Derp.

Speaking of which -- lol, what makes you people think such things don't exist?

A magnetar is an example of an unstoppable force. The universe is an example of an immovable object.

You people are becoming a little irritating with your pretentious dismissal of interesting questions that you don't know the answer to.

Another example of an immovable object would be a black hole...

...anyway, the Joker's point was that they are essentially the same thing.

Duh.
