The Modern Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 18.12 billion 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.

Universities are populated by the spawn of the upper classes, religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in HIM Opulentus I's bedroom, and the workforce is almost entirely made up of slave labour. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is well under control, 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 1st in Lazarus and 9th in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 44 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
