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 conspicuous electricity pylons, anti-smoking policies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 24.699 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 and Law & Order 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 20,492 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 829,694 Expected Returns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,495,697 per year while the poor average 48,158, a ratio of 114 to 1.

Mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation, Risk-free Asset is one of the most popular forenames in Daedra1a, unruly families are deliberately marooned on desert islands, and public intoxication has decreased ever since fraternities were banned. 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 2,499th in the world and 146th in Lazarus for Largest Black Market, with 204 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
