The Modern Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 31.678 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, although Defense and Law & Order are also considered important, 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 29,385 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 927,623 Expected Returns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 8,653,313 per year while the poor average 8,792, a ratio of 984 to 1.

Politicians that report exaggerated crowd sizes for their speeches are dismissed for being delusional, prominent cultural symbols are featured on the backs of cereal boxes, tourists often cite 'hiding money in an off-shore banking account' as their main reason to visit the nation, and Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy. 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 97,360th in the world and 2nd in Daedra1a Zombie Fort for Lowest Crime Rates, with 62.45 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
