Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Athenian Paradise of Otaku Stratus is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its digital currency, strictly enforced bedtime, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 29.464 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.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. 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 10,977 trillion sapphires a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 372,560 sapphires, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content, nude art is becoming wildly popular, the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, and most of the military's funding goes into researching space-age weaponry. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Otaku Stratus's national animal is the lion-griffin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Otaku Stratus is ranked 543rd in the world and 1st in Japan for Most Avoided, scoring 1,869.67 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
