The Athenian Paradise of Otaku Stratus is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 24.289 billion Stratites have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wisdom City. The average income tax rate is 44%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Pizza Delivery.

Rap artists are regularly jailed for promoting extremist groups, midnight pizza breaks are common among the work-from-home population, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, and the government seizes all major gold finds. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Otaku Stratus's national animal is the lion-griffin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its currency is the sapphire.

Otaku Stratus is ranked 23rd in Japan and 55,162nd in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.322 Stalins.
