The Athenian Paradise of Otaku Stratus is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Kairu Hakubi with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 35.161 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, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. 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 15,997 trillion sapphires a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 454,979 sapphires, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bemused schoolkids colour in their favourite quadratic equations with crayons, it's often raining men (hallelujah) in Wisdom City, signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, and the skeletons of lost tourists litter the ground of the Great Stratese Desert. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Otaku Stratus's national animal is the leogryph, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Otaku Stratus is ranked 2,593rd in the world and 6th in Japan for Highest Drug Use, scoring 116.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
