Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Modern Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 22.073 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 17,271 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 782,471 Expected Returns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,793,287 per year while the poor average 93,429, a ratio of 40.6 to 1.

Labour strikes are routinely squashed by police, citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, prominent cultural symbols are featured on the backs of cereal boxes, and only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations. 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 248th in Lazarus and 4,918th in the world for Lowest Crime Rates, scoring 301.264 on the Relative Freedom From Crime Index.
