The Athenian Paradise of Otaku Stratus is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Kairu Hakubi with a fair hand, and notable for its triple-decker prams, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 38.671 billion Stratites hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wisdom City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Stratese economy, worth an astonishing 18,740 trillion sapphires a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 484,602 sapphires, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, male friends are often accompanied by a female relative in order to prove their 'straightness', and voting is voluntary. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Otaku Stratus's national animal is the leogryph, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Otaku Stratus is ranked 2,201st in the world and 3rd in Japan for Largest Black Market, with 1,259 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
