Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Doomsville of Pikawil is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Shrek with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.175 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, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mitakihara Town. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Megucan economy, worth a remarkable 3,397 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 notable. Average income is an amazing 370,321 Sool Jims, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,428,875 per year while the poor average 22,108, a ratio of 109 to 1.

Mitakihara Town is a police state during international summits, half of Pikawil's doctors can't speak the language, forecasts predict rains of loose lead and mortar shells for the next six weeks, and 90% of active duty PAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones. 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 435th in the world for Most Devout, scoring 465 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
