Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Doomsville of Pikawil is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Shrek with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, public floggings, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.767 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, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mitakihara Town. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Megucan economy, worth a remarkable 4,176 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 rampant. Average income is an amazing 427,661 Sool Jims, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,799,405 per year while the poor average 65,957, a ratio of 27.3 to 1.

Eight year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government, and the Coobie is reportedly extinct. 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 4th in The Chewlands and 22,573rd in the world for Most Extreme, scoring 27 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
