Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Swamp of Pikawil is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Shrek with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.108 billion laddies 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 tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Welfare and Education 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 3.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Brogre economy, worth a remarkable 4,767 trillion Onions a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 393,724 Onions, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,460,639 per year while the poor average 74,653, a ratio of 19.6 to 1.

The nation has recently been attributed to the funding of terrorist organisations, folk singers have replaced personal injury lawyers in being ridiculed as "ambulance chasers", kids building model rockets in their backyard are grounded by Space Agency Rangers, and Shrek's latest speech included a bizarre reference to MaxWow incontinence pads being 50% more absorbent than the next leading brand. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Pikawil's national animal is the Donkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Ogre.

Pikawil is ranked 162nd in the world and 1st in RIP Harambe for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 704.46 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
