The Modern Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 18.685 billion Daedra1ans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Defence, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Opulentia. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology industries.

Minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, the nanny industry has had a boom after maternity leave was recently banned, third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, and elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Daedra1a's national animal is the Risk-free Asset, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Efficient Frontier, and its currency is the Expected Return.

Daedra1a is ranked 3,107th in Lazarus and 112,200th in the world for Best Weather, with -5,504 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
