The Swamp of Pikawil is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Shrek with an iron fist, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, ubiquitous missile silos, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.957 billion laddies are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Education aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Far Far Away. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Brogre economy, worth a remarkable 5,954 trillion Onions a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 398,092 Onions, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

Urbanites battle to the death for penthouse apartments, people spend a lot on hair and nails, it's considered a civil right to be allowed to neglect and mistreat your own children, and a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Pikawil's national animal is the Donkey, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ogre.

Pikawil is ranked 32nd in the world and 1st in Empire of Dank Memes for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 61,186.66 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
