The Modern Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with a fair hand, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, irreverence towards religion, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 28.247 billion Daedra1ans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

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 24,642 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 872,404 Expected Returns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,797,733 per year while the poor average 50,154, a ratio of 115 to 1.

Citizens must pay to enjoy Daedra1a's pristine beaches, even religious militants can be swayed by the power of #love, machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter, and the arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place. 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 100th in the world and 4th in Lazarus for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 135,139.29 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
