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 anti-smoking policies. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 18.131 billion 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.

Only a minority of the population can actually vote at elections, Max Barry is this year's Miss Daedra1a, electrocution deaths among computer technicians are at an all-time high, and the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, 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 23rd in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 46 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
