The Federal Commonwealth of Dicko is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Primarch Dicko with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, soft-spoken computers, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 11.203 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, 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 4,461 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 slick, highly efficient 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 398,243 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dickoan tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation, virtually all of the country's economic activity takes place in The Citadel, unemployed accountants keep double-entry ledgers of their benefit claims, and the government funds large training centres to turn Gryphons into functioning members of society. 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 9,844th in the world and 217th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 1,703.83254149092 Days.
