The Doomsville of Pikawil is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Shrek with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.237 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 84%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Fishing crews are regularly interrogated by surprisingly violent environmentalists, newborns are being raised as mindless killing machines, the state subsidizes liposuction, and the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry. 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 389th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 18 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
