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 renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, free-roaming dinosaurs, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 24.15 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 effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Defense also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality receive no funds. 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 19,720 trillion Expected Returns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 816,575 Expected Returns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,811,582 per year while the poor average 37,917, a ratio of 153 to 1.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, the judicial branch is strongly influenced by major corporations, foreign planes and migratory birds are shot down as spies, and elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates. Crime is all-pervasive, 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 19,624th in the world and 430th in Lazarus for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 6,005.99 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
