The Federal Commonwealth of Dicko is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Primarch Dicko with an iron fist, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 11.025 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 4,770 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 432,741 Bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

From the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in Dicko, a government program is underway to revitalize Dicko's beaches, the new Dickoan-made OS is buggier and more inconvenient than a horse-drawn carriage, and devotion to God is only skin-deep. 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 666th in the world and 32nd in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 20,571.3 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
