The Federal Commonwealth of Dicko is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Primarch Dicko with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, compulsory military service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.891 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, Administration, and Defense. 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 4,684 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 a large, well-organized 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 430,139 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's usual for grandparents to stay in the family home with their descendants but younger children are often frightened of them, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, the question of 'what is Primarch Dicko's favorite color?' has been given a priority rating of burnt-orange, and the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies. 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 245,420th in the world and 9,439th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -1604.03 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
