The Rogue Nation of Dicko is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Primarch Dicko with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.13 billion Dickoans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Citadel. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Dickoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,288 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, 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 312,053 Bitcoins, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Blueriver mercenaries routinely do the army's dirty work, former gun owners are finding that brandishing paintball guns isn't as satisfying as the real thing, Dickoan politicians spend a lot of time praising East Lebatuckese policies these days, and janitors and factory workers are often better educated than the bosses they work for. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Dicko is ranked 63,842nd in the world and 3,276th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,590.45 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
