The Empire of Atreidya is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.802 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 government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kaladar. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.1%.

The very strong Atreidyan economy, worth 197 trillion Yeris a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 70,625 Yeris, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 494,375 per year while the poor average 3,463, a ratio of 142 to 1.

Most people suffer from some form of hearing loss, police conduct weekly raids looking for contraband cheeseburgers, all work and no play has rendered the nation's children somewhat intelligent but also remarkably dull, and politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force. Atreidya's national animal is the Titan Sand Worm, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Atreidya is ranked 60,079th in the world and 28th in New Ausozera for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 82.16 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
