The Modern Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 19.835 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, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. 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 14,847 trillion Expected Returns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 748,562 Expected Returns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,961,764 per year while the poor average 22,345, a ratio of 266 to 1.

Torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, the government is outsourcing itself, major cities are suffering under water rationing, and the workforce is almost entirely made up of slave labour. 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 3rd in Lazarus and 77th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 724 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
