The Holy Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, flagrant waste-dumping, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 35.761 billion Daedra1ans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, although Defense and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. 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 34,597 trillion Lucky 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, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 967,463 Lucky Returns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 9,025,026 per year while the poor average 9,169, a ratio of 984 to 1.

The military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams, self-driving cars occasionally mow down pedestrians to avoid inconveniencing passengers, the inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only, and would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Daedra1a's national animal is the Risk-free Monster, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Efficient Frontier.

Daedra1a is ranked 272,673rd in the world and 1st in Daedra1a Zombie Fort for Most Income Equality, scoring 0.1 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
