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 renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 23.273 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 19,395 trillion Expected Returns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is a breathtaking 833,397 Expected Returns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,836,306 per year while the poor average 109,645, a ratio of 35.0 to 1.

Angst-filled teenagers are rushing off to buy government bonds for some odd reason, billions of Expected Returns are being blown on orbital weapons development, the nation's massive battleships are often mistaken for islands, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. 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 154,401st in the world and 4,859th in Lazarus for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -117.86 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
