The Athenian Paradise of Otaku Stratus is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 24.821 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. 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.

All major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways, there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', and Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes. 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 43rd in Japan and 112,668th in the world for Best Weather, with -1,642 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
