The Modern Portfolio Theory of Daedra1a is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by HIM Opulentus I with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, enslaved workforce, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 29.037 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 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 25,623 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 882,452 Expected Returns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,864,510 per year while the poor average 50,732, a ratio of 115 to 1.

Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, it's said that any enemy of democracy is a friend to HIM Opulentus I, ships are encouraged to deliberately run aground onto Daedra1an beaches, and the national security service are a bunch of crooks. 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 174,866th in the world and 5,770th in Lazarus for Most Inclusive, scoring 4.51 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
