The Shortening of the Way of Kwisatz Carderach is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by the Lisan al-Gaib with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 975 million Kwisatz Carderachians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arrakeen. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.1%.

The strong Kwisatz Carderachian economy, worth 47.4 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Average income is 48,590 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 143,382 per year while the poor average 12,950, a ratio of 11.1 to 1.

The nation gives peace a chance - usually one in a million, Calvinball players are lost for days as they wander the vast halls of their new academies, all government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Arrakeen, and The Lisan al-Gaib has been known to threaten dissenting citizens with a machine gun at press conferences. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Kwisatz Carderach's national animal is the Maker.

Kwisatz Carderach is ranked 231,238th in the world and 6,561st in the West Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -7.28 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
