The Rogue Nation of Dicko is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Primarch Dicko with an iron fist, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.537 billion Dickoans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The medium-sized, corrupt, 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 94.9%.
The frighteningly efficient Dickoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,084 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 306,548 Bitcoins, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.
The nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation, 'Police Academy 36' and 'Sharknados On A Plane' are vying for top spot at the box-office, and cub scouts are being asked to hand in their woggles as the state withdraws funding for scouting. 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.
