The Ditorstate of The IASM is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Ditor Húláng Lāzīn with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.79 billion Titianicians 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."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ōato. The average income tax rate is 93%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Online tourism reviews of The IASM are suspiciously positive and amazingly similar, cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, organ donation is compulsory, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. The IASM's national animal is the Titianician Mantis Shrimp, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, its national religion is Ōmätorism, and its currency is the Lazin Milotory.

The IASM is ranked 2nd in Sondria and 2,132nd in the world for Safest, scoring 808.4 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
