The Kingdom of Oureads is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Lord Voldemort with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and restrictive gun laws. The cynical population of 2.57 billion Oureadsians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hogwarts. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Oureadsian economy, worth 383 trillion Galleons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 149,358 Galleons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government snoops on private internet connections, local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, paralegals spend all day Hewlett-Packing attorneys' law briefs, and glamping Oureadsians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oureads's national animal is the Goblin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Wiccan.

Oureads is ranked 28,636th in the world and 20th in Wintercrest for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 6,409.06 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
