The Doomsville of Pikawil is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Shrek with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.76 billion Megucas are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

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 86%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Genetic researchers have been expelled, funding for education has been redirected into the military, military spending recently hit a new high, and protests are prohibited from blocking traffic. 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 7th in The Chewlands and 114,214th in the world for Best Weather, with -2,261 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
