Parodic motto!

Incompetence, Inequity (and) Deceit; all reign equally!

Feel free to use synonyms such as Ineptitude, Injustice and Dishonesty, if the synonym provides a better literal classical translation :)

Thanks in advance!

Ineptia Iniquitas et Fallacia. Tres pares reginae.

Imho [Ineptia/ segnitia / inscientia] regnat sound a bit unnatural for standalone expression incompetence reigns
I underline, this is just my personal view on the matter.
maybe ineptia regnatrix; mundi imperatrix ineptia.

... or, so to speak, in biblical terms (cf. Vulg. Eccl. 1:2 "vanitas vanitatum omnia vanitas"*):

Ineptiae ineptiarum omnia ineptiae

* Cf. KJV „vanity of vanities; all is vanity“.

"Ineptia vincit", not bad, but in classical Latin usually plural "inepitiae" > "Ineptiae vincunt", perhaps better "Omnia vincunt ineptiae" with regard to Virgil's "Omnia vincit amor" (ecl. 10, 69). Or, if you like: "Ubivis inepitiae" ("where you will; wherever it may be &c.").

From a grammatical standpoint correct, nevertheless I'd prefer
"Corruptio omnia vincit"

Civis Illustris
The singular "corruptio" represents all sorts of corruptio. It's a common rhetorical device called "singular for plural" (synecdoche).
