The Modern Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 19.217 billion Daedra1ans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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.

Voting is voluntary, citizens drive tank-like vehicles with mounted machine guns, drug-related crimes carry the death penalty, and religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else. Crime is a serious problem. 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 1,635th in Lazarus and 54,008th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 29 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
