Corrinth City, or Corrinth, is the most lavish and glamorous capital city of the planet Kaitain. It was the chief city and capital of the planet Kaitain, homeworld of the Padishah Emperors during the ten millennia of the rule of the Corrino Empire.

The city, which was named after House Corrino, was the administrative center of the entire Imperium.

The fifth Padishah Emperor Hassik Corrino III himself had taxed his subjects nearly into bankruptcy in order to rebuild a governmental infrastructure. While vowing not to be outdone by the Imperial House Corrino, the members of the Landsraad had built their own monuments in the growing city. Within a generation, unremarkable Kaitain had become an awesome spectacle of the Imperial architecture, museums, and bureaucratic self-indulgence.

Abulurd Rabban noted how the extravagant beauty of the city differs from his homeworlds of Giedi Prime and Lankiveil; the towering government buildings like a drug-induced fantasy with soaring edifices, jeweled inlays, and polished slabs of precious stone. Colorful chime kites were tethered to the tall buildings, writhing on breezes in the perpetually blue skies. The prismatic ribbons drifted across the sky and shed rainbows on the flagstones below. Abulurd noted that Kaitain was obviously more concerned with form than substance.

During the time of the Ascension of House Atreides, during the rule of Muad'Dib; Kaitain itself, and Corrinth, were attacked by Jihadi troops and severely damaged.
