The Doomsville of Pikawil is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Shrek with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.562 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is effectively ruled by the Department of Defence, with areas such as Social Welfare and Education receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mitakihara Town. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 80%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Only the wealthy can afford monorail fares, eight year-olds with lemonade stands have been known to be locked up on charges of embezzlement, mandatory electronic currency is a boon for credit card companies and government surveillance, and thieves are flogged in public for their crimes. Crime is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Pikawil's national animal is the Coobie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Ogre, and its currency is the Sool Jim.

Pikawil is ranked 1st in The Chewlands and 438th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 144 Whatever.
