The Doomsville of Pikawil is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by cheese with an iron fist, and renowned for its ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.344 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 71%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Citizens who become homeless are immediately executed, poets and writers are regularly rounded up and shot for entertainment, teenagers stay out into the wee hours of the morning "stargazing", and most of the military's funding goes into researching space-age weaponry. Crime is crippling. 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 8th in The Chewlands and 112,081st in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring -81 on the Enoch Index.
