The Forward to Dawn of Dreadton is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by The Captain with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working population of 5.268 billion Dreadtonians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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 78.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dreadtonian economy, worth 724 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 137,515 Dabloons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientific progress marches ever forward with the first ever launch of a cheeseburger into space, many are asking why the latest naval vessel is named after Saint Bartholomeus the Many Handed, extreme political groups are outlawed, and sales of trenchcoats are on the rise. 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 186,635th in the world and 7,111th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.78 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
