The Modern Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 28.668 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 25,163 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 877,759 Expected Returns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,911,624 per year while the poor average 48,521, a ratio of 121 to 1.

Daedra1ans are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, saying "don't do anything that HIM Opulentus I wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, pretty hair and tight shorts are considered to be essentials for successful political lobbyists, and burgers often list "miscellaneous meats" in their ingredients. 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 172nd in the world and 5th in Lazarus for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 1,279.87 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
