Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Dituate of The IASM is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ditor Hulang Lazin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, pith helmet sales, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 11.559 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 Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xungong. The average income tax rate is 69.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Akai economy, worth a remarkable 4,810 trillion Lazins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 416,201 Lazins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail, search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards, when people ask what the difference is between politicians and lawyers they are referred to document c15(iv) section 14.1 subsection 3.2 of the Jan 2015 political category definition guidance codes, and in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare. 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.

The IASM is ranked 90th in the world and 1st in Gholgoth for Largest Black Market, with 6,215 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
