Oogaboo is a fictional small kingdom in the Oz series of novels created by L. Frank Baum. A mountain range separates it from the rest of the Winkie Country in the Land of Oz. It is ruled by Queen Ann Soforth, daughter and successor to King Jol Jemkiph Soforth, who abdicated. Oogaboo is the smallest and poorest kingdom in Oz, despite the cultivation of trees which produce many items of value.
