Correct me if I am wrong, but doesn't ICANN oversee domains and IANA
oversees IP addresses?
Either way, I'm pretty sure you have to be a RIR in order to get assigned
a /8 directly from them. Take a look at "Criteria for Establishment of
New Regional Internet Registries", http://www.iana.org/icp/icp-2.htm

ARIN covers the "America's", which includes the United States, Canada,
etc. This idea shouldn't be very difficult to comprehend :)
