Regional Influence: Dominator


The Modern Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with an even hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 33.113 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 primarily concerned with Industry, with Defense and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare 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 31,139 trillion Expected Returns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 940,407 Expected Returns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 8,772,587 per year while the poor average 8,913, a ratio of 984 to 1.

The roar of the Niagara 3000 mega-loo can be heard several blocks away, a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, the new Liquor Legitimacy Office is besieged with job applications from people who have experience in "statistical sampling methods", and murder victims' families receive windfall payouts when the murderers are executed. 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 241,584th in the world and 2nd in Daedra1a Zombie Fort for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -59.08 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
