The Empire of Atreidya is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.268 billion Atreidyans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.1%.

The strong Atreidyan economy, worth 88.1 trillion Yeris a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 69,475 Yeris, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 570,793 per year while the poor average 1,777, a ratio of 321 to 1.

Pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects, citizens are tied down and forced to watch educational videos on empathy, there are no minimum wage laws, and citizens have never heard foreign radio. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force. Atreidya's national animal is the Sand Trout, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Atreidya is ranked 173,271st in the world and 37th in New Ausozera for Most Income Equality, scoring 0.31 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
