Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Atreidya is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.71 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 Tabahijan. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.1%.

The very strong Atreidyan economy, worth 120 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 59,174th in the world and 3rd in New Ausozera for Highest Crime Rates, with 4.84 Crimes Per Hour.
