The Federal Commonwealth of Dicko is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Primarch Dicko with an iron fist, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.217 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 4,127 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 447,799 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

They who do not work shall not eat, confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges, the government's economic policy can be summed up as "Abort, Retry, Fail?", and the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress. 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 205,204th in the world and 9,558th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 0.91 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
