Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Modern Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, infamous sell-swords, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 23.846 billion Daedra1ans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. 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 20,232 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 Gambling. Average income is a breathtaking 848,478 Expected Returns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 7,155,024 per year while the poor average 18,761, a ratio of 381 to 1.

Organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, jaywalkers are condemned to lives of poverty for their heinous crimes, possession of tomato seeds with intent to garden is a criminal offence, and shanty towns have formed around the newly rebuilt commercial district. 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 24,456th in the world and 1,264th in Lazarus for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 4,050.29 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
