The Corrino Empire, also known as the Corrino Imperium or simply the Imperium, refers to the organisation of the galaxy during the period in which House Corrino ruled the Known Universe.

This period began in the year 88 BG (Before Guild) after the Empire was established following the Battle of Corrin, and lasted until Paul Atreides usurped Shaddam Corrino IV after the epochal Desert War and founded the Atreides Empire in 10196 AG. The seat of power of the Corrino Empire was initially the planet Salusa Secundus, the traditional home of House Corrino. However, during their reign it was moved to Kaitain.

The Corrino Empire provided a socioeconomic and political framework within which the Faufreluches class system operated.
