The Fiefdom of The Third Imperium is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by God-Emperor Leto Atreides II with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 2.589 billion, 2.573 billion of whom are zombies, 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 36%. 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.
The Third Imperium is currently considering its options.
