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 smutty television, otherworldly petting zoo, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 28.687 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 25,182 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 877,842 Expected Returns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,757,615 per year while the poor average 52,408, a ratio of 109 to 1.

It is illegal to liberate slaves, blood stains the floors of the execution room and the hands of the state, terrorist videos start by thanking their sponsors, and electricity company executives pray nightly to Zeus and Thor. 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 14,691st in the world and 460th in Lazarus for Highest Drug Use, scoring 104.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
