The Forward to Dawn of Dreadton is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Captain with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working population of 7.488 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 81.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dreadtonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,069 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 142,868 Dabloons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Money grows on trees, the nation's museums are real penny-pinchers, public ferries only carry enough lifeboats for the first-class passengers, and reflection is vital for badly behaved politicians. 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 7,451st in the world and 396th in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,850.94 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
