The Athenian Paradise of Otaku Stratus is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, otherworldly petting zoo, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 31.901 billion Stratites hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, although Industry is also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. 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 12,996 trillion sapphires a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 407,416 sapphires, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens can't decide whether to be proud or horrified by the country's colonial history, preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime, Leader's speeches are beloved by insomniacs, and violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner. 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 62nd in the world and 1st in Japan for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 927.69 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
