The Modern Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with an iron fist, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 19.445 billion Daedra1ans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

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.

Tax rises are attributed to divine will, seafood restaurants assure customers 'If it lives in the sea, it's on our menu', a large percentage of the poor live from cradle to grave in subterranean wage slavery, and mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. 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 1,037th in Lazarus and 24,207th in the world for Nudest, with 192 Cheeks per Square Mile.
