The Modern Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 28.497 billion Daedra1ans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

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 aren't funded at all. 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 24,942 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 875,268 Expected Returns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,163,731 per year while the poor average 42,094, a ratio of 146 to 1.

Employees are told they can avoid traffic jams by starting work at 4 AM, city sidewalks are crowded with overweight people, male friends are often accompanied by a female relative in order to prove their 'straightness', and only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations. 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 6th in the world and 1st in Lazarus for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 39,140.19 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
