What is the authoritative source for TLDs? I always thought it was
IANA. Am I wrong?

% whois -h whois.iana.org ASIA
Domain asia. not found.  Please note that this whois server 
only provides information for a very few domains.

May be this is because the IANA and the ICANN do not really exist and
the root is managed by another entity, located on the east coast?
