The Athenian Paradise of Otaku Stratus is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. Its hard-nosed population of 23.688 billion 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 26%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Pizza Delivery.

Airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, Otaku Stratus's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region, and the nation leads Japan in per capita stalking. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Otaku Stratus's national animal is the lion-griffin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the sapphire.

Otaku Stratus is ranked 35th in Japan and 79,544th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.177 Stalins.
