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 multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 39.567 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, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, 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 40,164 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 Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 1,015,097 Expected Returns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 9,469,453 per year while the poor average 9,620, a ratio of 984 to 1.

Pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty, tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, millions of Expected Returns have been thrown into a project to find the cure for Mad Risk-free Assets Disease, and The Pipe Bomb Makers' Pop-Up Book can be found in preschool libraries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Daedra1a's national animal is the Risk-free Assets, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Efficient Frontier.

Daedra1a is ranked 31st in the world and 1st in Daedra1a Zombie Fort for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 64,521.85 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
