The Modern Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, frequent executions, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 29.013 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 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 25,592 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 Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 882,093 Expected Returns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,747,926 per year while the poor average 53,637, a ratio of 107 to 1.

Scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, the government maintains a Department of Skulduggery, social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, and people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy. 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 35,288th in the world and 1,977th in Lazarus for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 3,527.89 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
