The Federal Commonwealth of Dicko is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Primarch Dicko with an iron fist, and notable for its digital currency, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.167 billion Dickoans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Citadel. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Dickoan economy, worth a remarkable 4,174 trillion Bitcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 455,436 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Counter-Terrorism Unit has been nicknamed "Big Bad Wolf" for its tendency towards urban demolition, taking hostages is a great way to influence government policy, the nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', and undergrads find their professors' mushroom experiments less psychedelic than expected. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dicko's national animal is the Gryphon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dicko is ranked 191,904th in the world and 9,293rd in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -9.9 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
