The Athenian Paradise of Otaku Stratus is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Kairu Hakubi with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 39.008 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 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 18,927 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 485,210 sapphires, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Populations of two-headed leogryphs have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites, politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, and endocrinology is a rapidly growing field of study. 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 243,597th in the world and 111th in Japan for Most Secular, with 0.7 Atheism Rate.
