The Forward to Dawn of Dreadton is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Captain with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 4.618 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, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Captains Mast. The average income tax rate is 78.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dreadtonian economy, worth 647 trillion Dabloons a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 140,289 Dabloons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jennifer Government is a bestseller, vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue, students do more community service than homework, and arms manufacturers and mild-mannered journalists have been outed as superheroes. 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 14,202nd in the world and 733rd in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 4,710.92 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
