The Federal Commonwealth of Dicko is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Primarch Dicko with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, complete lack of prisons, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 17.689 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 8,714 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 492,660 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, getting an autograph has become harder than ever, and citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Dicko. 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 431st in the world and 27th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 98.58 years.
