Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Athenian Paradise of Otaku Stratus is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its smutty television, infamous sell-swords, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 29.72 billion Stratites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 11,744 trillion sapphires a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 395,174 sapphires, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's religious works are headed by a New Age guru, nine out of ten citizens of Otaku Stratus answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation, private business has started paving paradises and putting up parking lots, and morning coffees are no longer the same since the disappearance of newspapers. 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 58,696th in the world and 6th in Japan for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 1,934.95 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
