The Ditorate of The IASM is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ditor Hulang Lazin with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.939 billion Akai are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xuanjing-00. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Akai economy, worth a remarkable 3,657 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 common. Average income is an amazing 409,164 Lazins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
A punitive tax has been placed on harmful emissions, emigrants arrive on foreign shores with nothing but pocket sand, artists regularly face criminal charges and art-burning parties are common, and the native owl population is in permanent hibernation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The IASM's national animal is the Basilisk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Omahijism.
