Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Modern Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 22.699 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 18,552 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, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 817,334 Expected Returns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,469,726 per year while the poor average 76,356, a ratio of 58.5 to 1.

EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, Opulentia is a police state during international summits, the government has forked out millions on an unmade bed that is apparently East Lebatuckese "art", and the law is more interested in punishing crime than preventing it. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. 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 181,319th in the world and 5,132nd in Lazarus for Longest Average Lifespans, with 18.55 Years.
