The Modern Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 18.73 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.

The breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Daedra1a, the Risk-free Asset is reportedly extinct, bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, and travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Efficient Frontier, and its currency is the Expected Return.

Daedra1a is ranked 3,154th in Lazarus and 112,172nd in the world for Best Weather, with -5,518 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
