The Half-Blood Prince of Prof Snape is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Voldemort with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, parental licensing program, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.626 billion Slytherins are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 53.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Slytherin economy, worth 854 trillion Knuts a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 129,015 Knuts, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 412,316 per year while the poor average 30,667, a ratio of 13.4 to 1.

New treatments are rejected if they cannot be explained using only one-syllable words, Slytherin-made cars tend to catch fire in people's driveways, beaches are empty as the shark population multiplies exponentially, and tampons are used as cheap fishing bobbers. 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 175,138th in the world and 30th in Hogwarts for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -11.45 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
