The Dictatorship of Oureads is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Snape with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The cynical population of 975 million Oureadsians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hogwarts. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Oureadsian economy, worth 111 trillion Watermelons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 114,739 Watermelons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

People often feel unbalanced by their daily commute, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Oureads, urban entrepreneurs are busy introducing cockroaches into restaurant kitchens, and stolen Reuben sandwiches are met with detailed and thorough police investigations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oureads's national animal is the Vaquita, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Oureads is ranked 26,916th in the world and 33rd in Wintercrest for Most Authoritarian, with 1,836.58 milliStalins.
