The Modern Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with an even hand, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 33.327 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 and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. 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 31,380 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, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is a breathtaking 941,594 Expected Returns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 8,783,661 per year while the poor average 8,925, a ratio of 984 to 1.

Vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR, Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, students consistently complain that the wi-fi ate their homework, and employees are told they can avoid traffic jams by starting work at 4 AM. 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 3rd in the world and 1st in Daedra1a Zombie Fort for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 8.78 million Standard Monetary Units.
