The Doomsville of Pikawil is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Shrek with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.586 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, 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 83%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Mitakihara Town is a police state during international summits, the National Archive now covers square miles of warehouses in order to accommodate its new stone tablets system, the internet has been placed under government control, and people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer. 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 8th in The Chewlands and 112,271st in the world for Safest, scoring -1,153 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
