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 notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 23.087 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 19,074 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 826,198 Expected Returns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,820,294 per year while the poor average 66,680, a ratio of 72.3 to 1.

A new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, in its new More is More campaign the government advertises obese men and women posing coquettishly with baked goods to spare their blushes, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, and the government spends twice as much reclaiming lost settlements from the sea as it could've on coastal defences. 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 136,771st in the world and 3,818th in Lazarus for Most Authoritarian, with 0.05 Stalins.
