The Modern Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 30.683 billion Daedra1ans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, with Defense and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Opulentia. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Daedra1an economy, worth an astonishing 28,105 trillion Expected Returns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 916,011 Expected Returns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 8,544,970 per year while the poor average 8,683, a ratio of 984 to 1.

Major cities are suffering under water rationing, trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, newly synthesized elements' half-lives are a million times shorter than the time it takes to say their names, and five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Daedra1a's national animal is the Risk-free Asset, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Efficient Frontier.

Daedra1a is ranked 173,345th in the world and 2nd in Daedra1a Zombie Fort for Longest Average Lifespans, with 18.48 Years.
