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 anti-smoking policies, flagrant waste-dumping, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 20.724 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 15,854 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 765,025 Expected Returns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,738,906 per year while the poor average 53,285, a ratio of 88.9 to 1.

Reporters sent to cover suspected UFO visits come back with stories about quilting bees, former school buses now regularly shuttle kids to the nearest shopping centers to work, 'Mountain Doobie' is widely regarded as the nation's favourite drink, and the nation has recently been attributed to the funding of terrorist organisations. 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 32nd in Lazarus and 853rd in the world for Largest Public Sector, scoring 53 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
