The Rogue Nation of Dicko is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Primarch Dicko with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, suspicion of poets, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.846 billion Dickoans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. 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 2,192 trillion Bitcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Retail. Average income is an amazing 320,303 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, disposable antiseptic wipes are considered a social necessity, the government has little issue with allowing its citizens to languish in foreign jails, and government employees from Dicko dominate international lumberjack competitions. 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 4,701st in the world and 200th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 6,624.05 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
