The Fiefdom of The Third Imperium is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by God-Emperor Leto Atreides II with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.485 billion The Third Imperiumians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is effectively ruled by the Department of Defence, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Onn. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Information Technology industries.
A typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, and military spending is on the increase. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Third Imperium's national animal is the Sandworm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Spice.
