The Federal Commonwealth of Dicko is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Primarch Dicko with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, strictly enforced bedtime, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.622 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, 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 4,098 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 475,340 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lip-readers are often left perplexed by political rallies, heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Bitcoin treacle machine, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', and the nation is proudly the least fertile in The North Pacific. 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 183,908th in the world and 9,194th in The North Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -172 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
