The Athenian Paradise of Otaku Stratus is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kairu Hakubi with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 39.161 billion Stratites live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute 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 18,490 trillion sapphires a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 472,159 sapphires, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Monocled merchants with funny accents are applying for Stratese citizenship in droves, the canal flows through the land like a twisty turny thing, bread-gangs raid restaurant waste bins to stockpile uneaten rolls, and tombstones are ten feet high to accommodate the names of inhabitants. 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 7,709th in the world and 7th in Japan for Largest Governments, scoring 36.04 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
