comparing "total market" to "Random performance"

I get wildly different results when I use "Total Market" for my portfolio invesment versus "Random Performance" using numbers for mean and standard deviation that I believe to be an accurate reflection of history, for example mean of 7% and stdev of 12%. My question is what is the actual mean and stdev of the actual market historical data used by FIRECalc? In other words, what pair of values would compare equally with the "Total Market" method?
