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 anti-smoking policies, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 25.208 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, is dominated by the Department of Industry, although Defense and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality aren't funded at all. 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 20,743 trillion Expected Returns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 822,897 Expected Returns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,344,836 per year while the poor average 50,492, a ratio of 105 to 1.

Both illness and poverty are seen as signs of low moral worth, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, tantrum-throwing toddlers are regularly imprisoned on assault charges, and speaking out against the government is punishable by flogging. Crime is a problem, 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 7th in the world and 1st in Lazarus for Fattest Citizens, with 99.22 Obesity Rate.
