Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Doomsville of Pikawil is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Shrek with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.735 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 dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order and Industry 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 33.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Megucan economy, worth a remarkable 4,711 trillion Sool Jims a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 438,883 Sool Jims, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,174,912 per year while the poor average 50,220, a ratio of 43.3 to 1.

Every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, organ donation is compulsory, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, and the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists. 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 134,602nd in the world for Safest, scoring -33.564 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
