The Forward to Dawn of Dreadton is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Captain with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate population of 11.351 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 87.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dreadtonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,617 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 142,499 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 98,349th in the world and 2,144th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 170,643 Standard Monetary Units.
