Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Doomsville of Pikawil is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Shrek with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, sprawling nuclear power plants, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.699 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, with Law & Order, Industry, and Spirituality also on the agenda, 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 7.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Megucan economy, worth a remarkable 3,225 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 frequent. Average income is an amazing 370,805 Sool Jims, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,067,241 per year while the poor average 33,206, a ratio of 62.3 to 1.

Euthanasia is illegal, an increasingly villainous series of sports coaches are demanding the national mascot's true identity, anti-environmentalist protesters are gunned down without mercy, and mandatory electronic currency is a boon for credit card companies and government surveillance. 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 1st in The Chewlands and 19th in the world for Stupidest Citizens, scoring 36 on the Average Edu-UNtellignceŽ Test Score.
