The Federal Commonwealth of Dicko is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Primarch Dicko with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 15.546 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 Administration, Education, 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 7,242 trillion Bitcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 465,870 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government workers are more efficient and more unhappy than ever, citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Dicko, and the military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists. 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 5,027th in the world and 179th in The North Pacific for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 10,722.2 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
