The Athenian Paradise of Otaku Stratus is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Kairu Hakubi with a fair hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, anti-smoking policies, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 37.466 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 17,670 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 471,633 sapphires, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, there's a bright dawn ahead for Otaku Stratus, and emojis are the soul of wit. 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 125,770th in the world and 74th in Japan for Most Average, scoring 34.41 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
