The Athenian Paradise of Otaku Stratus is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 24.487 billion Stratites enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Pizza Delivery.

Graffiti graces every city's streets, a crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun, marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. 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 1st in Japan and 29th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 393 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
