The Modern Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, flagrant waste-dumping, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 29.02 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 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 25,602 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 882,220 Expected Returns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,843,616 per year while the poor average 51,206, a ratio of 114 to 1.

Pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, a new "thought police" branch is being developed, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, and farmers are struggling to keep up with demand for local produce. 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 175,406th in the world and 5,814th in Lazarus for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -129.15 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
