The Modern Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, enslaved workforce, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 31.902 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 29,658 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 929,686 Expected Returns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 8,140,841 per year while the poor average 16,034, a ratio of 507 to 1.

Good-looking soldier boys have celebrity status amongst the nation's homosexuals, a Daedra1a Zombie Fort Tourist Association survey has rated Daedra1a #1 for number twos, nine out of ten citizens of Daedra1a answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation, and the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts. 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 18th in the world and 1st in Daedra1a Zombie Fort for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 64,329.31 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
