The Doomsville of Pikawil is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Shrek with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.896 billion Megucas are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is effectively ruled by the Department of Defence, with areas such as Social Welfare and Education receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mitakihara Town. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 84%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

The government funds private schools for intellectually gifted children, citizens who fail to follow the official national religion are executed, young people crowd pizza parlors praying to 'The Supreme Pizza, His Immaculate Munchiness', and hairdressers are among those who have disappeared overnight. Crime is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Pikawil's national animal is the Coobie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Ogre, and its currency is the Sool Jim.

Pikawil is ranked 3rd in The Chewlands and 99,794th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -12 on the Hayek Index.
