The Modern Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 19.048 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.

Murder rates are on the rise as the popularity of soylent products grows, urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, racial and religious segregation has become rife as the various groups are loath to mingle, and organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region. Crime is moderate. 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 1st in Lazarus and 20th in the world for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 48 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
