Leto II Atreides

Population1.269 billion


The Empire of Leto II Atreides is a massive, safe nation, notable for its frequent executions, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 1.269 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 Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 46.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Leto II Atreidesian economy, worth 25.7 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, highly 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 20,277 spices, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

War criminals are given full state funerals, students everywhere have been despairing after the recent ban on video games, the government is attempting to impose a new national language on the public, and all government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Leto II Atreides City. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Leto II Atreides's national animal is the sandworm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Leto II Atreides is ranked 205,354th in the world and 4th in Arrakis for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -11.22 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
