Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Modern Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, complete lack of public education, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 20.531 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 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 15,659 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 762,728 Expected Returns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,859,668 per year while the poor average 49,330, a ratio of 98.5 to 1.

College students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', only fully-fledged members of MENSA are allowed to vote, and the country spends an increasingly large amount of its budget on grand scale projects of pharaonic proportions in a bid to boost the economy. 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 4,337th in Lazarus and 146,594th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -1,242 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
