The Federal Commonwealth of Dicko is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Primarch Dicko with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, parental licensing program, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.129 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 large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. 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 4,066 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 black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. 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 445,409 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gryphons have more rights than the average citizen, troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist, there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, and a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway. 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 2,408th in the world and 144th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 93.6 Years.
