The Rogue Nation of Dicko is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Primarch Dicko with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, parental licensing program, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.521 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, 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 97.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Dickoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,469 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 Arms Manufacturing. 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 325,138 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Arbitration is mightier than the sword, ersatz chicken has left the nation's citizens with a bad taste in their mouths, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Dickoans any less frightened. 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 405th in the world and 18th in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 241,921.4 Standard Monetary Units.
