The Athenian Paradise of Otaku Stratus is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kairu Hakubi with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 35.733 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, liberal, 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 16,222 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 an amazing 453,994 sapphires, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Kairu Hakubi's bedroom, home education can sometimes be a load of bullocks, there's a lot of hot air coming from the Capitol Building, and the government tells its citizens to 'forgive and forget'. 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 37,171st in the world and 14th in Japan for Most Pro-Market, scoring 62.89 on the Rand Index.
