Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Doomsville of Pikawil is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Shrek with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, rampant corporate plagiarism, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.838 billion Megucas are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mitakihara Town. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Megucan economy, worth a remarkable 3,210 trillion Sool Jims a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 363,298 Sool Jims, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,455,014 per year while the poor average 19,881, a ratio of 123 to 1.

The nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, anti-environmentalist protesters are gunned down without mercy, and citizens must pay to enjoy Pikawil's pristine beaches. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Pikawil's national animal is the Coobie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ogre.

Pikawil is ranked 4th in The Chewlands and 5,064th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 9 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
