Leto II Atreides

The Empire of Leto II Atreides is a massive, pleasant nation, renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.935 billion Leto II Atreidesians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 42.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Leto II Atreidesian economy, worth 82.2 trillion spices a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 28,001 spices, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government merely sends empty platitudes whenever natural disasters strike foreign nations, children in school playgrounds can be heard chanting the hymns of the Order of Violet, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, and dubiously qualified East Lebatuckese doctors prescribe ice baths as a treatment for pneumonia. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Leto II Atreides's national animal is the sandworm.

Leto II Atreides is ranked 87,371st in the world and 1st in Arrakis for Most Armed, with 0.39 Weapons Per Person.
