The Rogue Nation of Dicko is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Primarch Dicko with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, soft-spoken computers, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.833 billion Dickoans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Citadel. The average income tax rate is 86.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Dickoan economy, worth 822 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, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Uranium Mining, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. 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 290,402 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Cremation is compulsory for the deceased, rocket boots and thermal detonators have become standard-issue military gear, contestants on Dicko's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent, and politicians constantly ring their voters to remind them how good a job they're doing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dicko's national animal is the Gryphon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
