The Federal Commonwealth of Dicko is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Primarch Dicko with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, aversion to nipples, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.141 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 4,119 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 450,658 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Major cities are suffering under water rationing, international humanitarian organisations are applauding the government for ending the death penalty, the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage', and the Police Surveillance Unit's motto is "Gotta Catch 'Em All". 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 39,587th in the world and 1,761st in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 29.35 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
