The Fiefdom of The Third Imperium is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by God-Emperor Leto Atreides II with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of public education, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.729 billion The Third Imperiumians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The medium-sized, pro-business government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Onn. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.9%.
The frighteningly efficient The Third Imperiumian economy, worth 482 trillion Spices a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 84,178 Spices, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.
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 pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. The Third Imperium's national animal is the Sandworm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
