Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Modern Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, parental licensing program, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 20.345 billion Daedra1ans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Opulentia. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Daedra1an economy, worth an astonishing 15,440 trillion Expected Returns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 758,932 Expected Returns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,268,218 per year while the poor average 18,878, a ratio of 332 to 1.

Airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted, the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, and a recent political debate came to a quick close once the ruling party decreed it was "just plain silly". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Daedra1a's national animal is the Risk-free Asset, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Efficient Frontier.

Daedra1a is ranked 4,344th in Lazarus and 135,382nd in the world for Safest, scoring -85.021 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
