The Matriarchy of Dawnonia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kathryn Janeway with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 16.575 billion Dawnonians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solitude. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The enormous but inefficient Dawnonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,642 trillion Dawnons a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 99,073 Dawnons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's suggestions box is curiously empty these days, nouveau riche farmers diligently take care of their golden calf herds, government fact-checkers use surprising amounts of high explosive, and many rural villagers have never been more than a day's horse-ride from their birthplace. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dawnonia's national animal is the Honey Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dawnonia is ranked 238,000th in the world and 262nd in Spiritus for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -16.82 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
