What is the Ministry of Magic in the Harry Potter films?

The Ministry of Magic is the government administrative body of the British wizarding world. In the world of non-wizarding humans (the Muggle world), it is similar to the various government and administrative bodies in Japan, such as the Diet, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Defence, the Ministry of Justice, the courts and police forces. The Ministry of Magic is a combined legislative, executive and judicial period.

The Ministry of Magic is headed by the Minister for Magic. In Harry Potter's wizarding world, magic and wizards are hidden from humans (Muggles). Similarly, the Ministry of Magic is hidden from Muggles so as not to be noticed.
