Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Rogue Nation of Dicko is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Primarch Dicko with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.208 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Citadel. The average income tax rate is 91.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Dickoan economy, worth 970 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 302,648 Bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, doughnut-makers claim their products are healthy because they are fortified with vitamins, and Dicko has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 29,856th in the world and 836th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 372.83339333092 Days.
