The Federal Commonwealth of Dicko is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Primarch Dicko with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.375 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 medium-sized, 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 4,310 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 459,817 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is proudly the least fertile in The North Pacific, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, homes have been banned from having any more than one wheel, and the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning. 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 173,724th in the world and 7,526th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 7.87 Obesity Rate.
