The Modern Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 32.165 billion Daedra1ans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, although Defense and Law & Order are also considered important, 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 29,966 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 931,644 Expected Returns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 8,690,831 per year while the poor average 8,831, a ratio of 984 to 1.

Blood stains the floors of the execution room and the hands of the state, teddy bear James Dean (aka "the Rebel Without the Claws") helps convince kids that candy cigarettes are cool, computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, and passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections. 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 201,274th in the world and 1st in Daedra1a Zombie Fort for Highest Poor Incomes, with 8,831 Standard Monetary Units.
