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 smutty television, enslaved workforce, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 23.449 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 19,630 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 837,147 Expected Returns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,402,428 per year while the poor average 52,292, a ratio of 103 to 1.

Fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', the government has completely eliminated all childcare programs, and wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms. 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 26th in the world and 1st in Lazarus for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 1,218.2 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
