Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Doomsville of Pikawil is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Shrek with an iron fist, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, prohibition of alcohol, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.909 billion Megucas 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, although Industry and Spirituality are also considered important, while Welfare and Education are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mitakihara Town. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Megucan economy, worth a remarkable 4,654 trillion Sool Jims 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 390,803 Sool Jims, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,491,146 per year while the poor average 70,858, a ratio of 21.0 to 1.

The religious lobby has the power of veto over health initiatives, the country is at the forefront of a 'peacekeeping' mission to secure power plants in war-torn Maxtopia, survivors receive aid from only the most environmentally-friendly transport, and only the wealthy can afford monorail fares. 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 Coobie, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Ogre.

Pikawil is ranked 17,215th in the world and 2nd in The Chewlands for Highest Poor Incomes, with 70,858.83 Standard Monetary Units.
