Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Modern Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, anti-smoking policies, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 20.893 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 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 16,038 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 767,641 Expected Returns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,349,501 per year while the poor average 38,191, a ratio of 140 to 1.

The bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Opulentia, student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned Risk-free Assetball fields, the Risk-free Asset is reportedly extinct, and corporations cut costs by taking away safety-features on their products. 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 4,115th in Lazarus and 119,766th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring -56 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
