Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Doomsville of Pikawil is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Shrek with an iron fist, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, unlimited-speed roads, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.398 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 and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mitakihara Town. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Megucan economy, worth a remarkable 3,944 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. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 419,767 Sool Jims, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,991,662 per year while the poor average 52,209, a ratio of 38.1 to 1.

Tourists are flocking to the newly-built MeteorLand family resort, all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, and citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering'. 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 1,552nd in the world for Largest Public Sector, scoring 47 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
