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 8.474 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, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Education receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mitakihara Town. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Megucan economy, worth a remarkable 3,027 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. Average income is an amazing 357,266 Sool Jims, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,276,300 per year while the poor average 23,106, a ratio of 98.5 to 1.

Ollie the Oiled Seal welcomes throngs of tourists to the newly opened Oil Oasis Water Park, online tourism reviews of Pikawil are suspiciously positive and amazingly similar, military spending recently hit a new high, and the government's official position on invasive species is 'who cares?'. 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 2nd in The Chewlands and 33,621st in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.749 Stalins.
