Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Doomsville of Pikawil is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Shrek with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, public floggings, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.065 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, although Law & Order, Industry, and Spirituality are also considered important, 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 7.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Megucan economy, worth a remarkable 3,376 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 frequent. Average income is an amazing 372,449 Sool Jims, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,244,763 per year while the poor average 27,794, a ratio of 80.8 to 1.

Immigrant herding has become a national pastime, flash floods that dams could have controlled regularly ravage small towns in mountain valleys, organ donation is compulsory, and torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals. 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 6th in The Chewlands and 142,623rd in the world for Happiest Citizens, scoring -19 on the Relative Cheerfulness Rating.
