Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Ditorstate of The IASM is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Ditor Húláng Lāzīn with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, parental licensing program, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.785 billion Akai are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xuanjing-00. The average income tax rate is 77.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Akai economy, worth a remarkable 2,924 trillion Lazins a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 375,673 Lazins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government has the power to seize property at will, fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government, tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, and the government has awarded itself a month-long holiday to celebrate its achievements. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The IASM's national animal is the Basilisk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Ōmätorism.

The IASM is ranked 1st in The Cornellian Empire and 1,387th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 247 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
