The Modern Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 28.655 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 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 25,151 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 877,749 Expected Returns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,891,780 per year while the poor average 49,006, a ratio of 120 to 1.

The bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Opulentia, citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, chest pains are considered part of the dining experience in Daedra1an restaurants, and group hugs break out during floor votes. 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 15th in the world and 1st in Lazarus for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 99.38 Workforce Participation Rate.
