The Doomsville of Pikawil is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by cheese with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.374 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 71%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Gun ownership is compulsory, the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, the National Archive now covers square miles of warehouses in order to accommodate its new stone tablets system, and the controversial show 'Who Wants to be an Immigrant?' has become wildly popular. 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 Oreos, and its currency is the Sool Jim.

Pikawil is ranked 9th in The Chewlands and 111,559th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring -58 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
