The Rogue Nation of Dicko is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Primarch Dicko with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, prohibition of alcohol, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.415 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 2,459 trillion Bitcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Retail. Average income is an amazing 331,736 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, every citizen is allowed exactly fifteen minutes of fame, and they say that Primarch Dicko's personal computer is full of naked pictures of the Emperor of Maxtopia. 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 28,175th in the world and 1,288th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,435.62 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
