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 barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 19.233 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.

Government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, and police officers have nearly cracked a major underage astronomy syndicate. Crime is a 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 3,630th in Lazarus and 113,003rd in the world for Best Weather, with -5,739 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
