The Magical Moonbase of Prof Snape is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Voldemort with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.837 billion Slytherins 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 Law & Order, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Azkaban. The average income tax rate is 25.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Slytherin economy, worth 461 trillion Knuts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 79,041 Knuts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm, Slytherins are wondering where have all the flowers gone, the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, and balaclava manufacturers are held criminally culpable for bank heists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Prof Snape's national animal is the Basilisk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Death Eaters.

Prof Snape is ranked 136,032nd in the world and 23rd in Hogwarts for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -5.48 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
