The Modern Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with an even hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 18.853 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.

Tesco was recently named as the new national treasurer, citizens must pay to enjoy Daedra1a's pristine beaches, the adult unemployment rate nears 100% as all available jobs have been filled by young children, and fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets. Crime is a problem. Daedra1a's national animal is the Risk-free Asset, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Efficient Frontier, and its currency is the Expected Return.

Daedra1a is ranked 3,268th in Lazarus and 111,426th in the world for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with -11,514.75 Net Tourists per hour.
