The Modern Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 26.309 billion Daedra1ans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 22,252 trillion Expected Returns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 845,831 Expected Returns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,372,102 per year while the poor average 55,173, a ratio of 97.4 to 1.

Shanty towns have formed around the newly rebuilt commercial district, Daedra1a is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, Daedra1a's leader goes out to lunch surrounded by large men in dark glasses, and farm turkeys are given high doses of antidepressants to take their minds off the holiday season. 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 5,784th in the world and 133rd in Lazarus for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 97.37 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
