The Rogue Nation of Dicko is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Primarch Dicko with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.024 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, socially-minded, 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 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Dickoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,724 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 343,175 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The entire health budget has been diverted into prolonging Primarch Dicko's life, the horniness of the great-horned Gryphon is considered a national priority, government workers are more efficient and more unhappy than ever, and government officials are phoning up good-looking celebrities to say they want to breed with them. 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 22,639th in the world and 1,181st in The North Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 66.07 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
