The Modern Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 19.416 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.

The nation leads Lazarus in per capita stalking, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, and organ donation is compulsory. 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 3rd in Lazarus and 81st in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 713 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
