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 conspicuous electricity pylons, enslaved workforce, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 22.884 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 18,816 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 Gambling. Average income is a breathtaking 822,266 Expected Returns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,622,656 per year while the poor average 72,272, a ratio of 64.0 to 1.

Corporate 'hostile takeovers' now involve ICBMs and main battle tanks, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', a recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father, and the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused. Crime is moderate, 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 346th in the world and 15th in Lazarus for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 85.82 Whatever.
