The Athenian Paradise of Otaku Stratus is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 24.816 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. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Pizza Delivery.

Tightly packed choir-boys sing the god-given joys of heterosexuality on public transport, citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, and traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Otaku Stratus's national animal is the lion-griffin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the sapphire.

Otaku Stratus is ranked 1st in Japan and 2,096th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 6 on the Hayek Index.
