All forces have an associated theorized particle.
Inertia is not a force.

Actually, inertia can be thought of as a force simply take the ma in F=ma over to the F side, and write it Fma=0, so ma is the "inertial force." There is indeed a particle associated with it that's the Higgs boson that CERN has spent so much money and scientific collateral searching for (and may be finding we'll know in a year or sooner).
