The Federal Commonwealth of Dicko is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Primarch Dicko with an iron fist, and renowned for its restrictive gun laws, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 13.272 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 5,744 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 432,856 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Women complaining about lack of opportunity are told to "man up", students spend the school year learning how great the education system is, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, and the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap. 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 74,633rd in the world and 3,558th in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 2,083.68 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
