Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Doomsville of Pikawil is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Shrek with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.564 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, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, 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 28.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Megucan economy, worth a remarkable 4,095 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 428,245 Sool Jims, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,768,494 per year while the poor average 68,178, a ratio of 25.9 to 1.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, moonshine and organized crime are on the rise ever since alcohol was banned, minefields are being deployed along the border to discourage potential emigrants from trying to leave, and EpiPen sales have skyrocketed. 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 17th in the world for Stupidest Citizens, scoring 37 on the Average Edu-UNtellignce® Test Score.
