The Commonwealth of Boolaroo is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Harry Potter with an iron fist, and renowned for its lack of airports, parental licensing program, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 35.573 billion Boolarooans 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 enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hogwarts. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Boolarooan economy, worth a remarkable 2,701 trillion dollars a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 75,948 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, the new one dollar coin also makes a handy throwing-star, prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned significant others, and people make a career out of medical voyeurism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Boolaroo's national animal is the kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Boolaroo is ranked 5,391st in the world and 6th in Hell for Most Developed, scoring 93.25 on the Human Development Index.
