The Commonwealth of Boolaroo is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Harry Potter with an even hand, and renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 39.601 billion Boolarooans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hogwarts. The average income tax rate is 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Boolarooan economy, worth a remarkable 3,225 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 81,456 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Abattoirs are struggling with the directive to 'wait until the animal dies of a ripe old age', politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers, and people are always able to look each other in the eye. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 273,402nd in the world and 58th in Hell for Most Patriotic, with 0.24 flags saluted per person per day.
