The Athenian Paradise of Otaku Stratus is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Kairu Hakubi with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 45.195 billion Stratites enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. 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 23,646 trillion sapphires a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 523,202 sapphires, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The endangered saltwater humpback leogryph is only seen in captivity programs, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, the government prefers to kill off its enemies by peaceful means, and the nation is known abroad mostly for its Parliamentary antics. 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 299,488th in the world and 21st in Free Japan for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -20.58 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
