Sardaukar meets Hunger Games:

The Evil Empire depends on slave soldiers for it's cannon fodder. They are held by pain inducing implants, battlesuits with security modules to keep the wielder from running off. And secret police controlling or observing these.

They are kept in regular training in a Deathworld with live ammunition. Regiments of trainees are sent into battle against each other, with their children behind as hostages. The losing regiment is executed but they have to watch their dependents tortured to death first. The winning, gets a delay. Regiments who pass through this are sent against "real" enemies of the Empire under similar threats if they retreat or surrender without orders.

Possibilities include being a slave soldier in this grim regime. Leading a revolt of slave soldiers. Being a foreign spy among them.
