The Psychoneurot Dreaming Fremen of Heretics of Dune is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Paul Muadib with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 29.274 billion Fremens are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arrakeen. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Heretics of Dunean economy, worth a remarkable 3,366 trillion spice melanges a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 114,988 spice melanges, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 447,252 per year while the poor average 20,213, a ratio of 22.1 to 1.

Most governmental positions are filled by zealous nationalists, major corporations receive tax breaks for no apparent reason, even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, and the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Heretics of Dune's national animal is the sandworm, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Zensunni.

Heretics of Dune is ranked 141,188th in the world and 6th in Dune for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 14.37 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
