The Forward to Dawn of Dreadton is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Captain with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.331 billion Dreadtonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Captains Mast. The average income tax rate is 82.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dreadtonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,359 trillion Dabloons a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 145,677 Dabloons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, The Captain knows that some internet activities are strictly solitary (Dreadton has found 1 easter egg), and the nation is relieved that all of the recent madness has finally come to an end. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dreadton's national animal is the Parrot, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Dreadton is ranked 306,345th in the world and 11,753rd in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -14.56 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
