Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Dituate of The IASM is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ditor Hulang Lazin with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.974 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 prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xungong. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Akai economy, worth a remarkable 4,515 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 411,435 Lazins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Ditor Hulang Lazin's latest speech included a bizarre reference to MaxWow incontinence pads being 50% more absorbent than the next leading brand, the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, and the automobile industry is sitting up and taking notice of the new 24 hour race events... as are the track's sleepless neighbours. 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 7,898th in the world and 5th in Gholgoth for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 2,957.01 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
