Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Swamp of Pikawil is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Shrek with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ritual sacrifices, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.768 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 and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Welfare and Education are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mitakihara Town. The average income tax rate is 3.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Brogre economy, worth a remarkable 5,051 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 395,648 Onions, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food, squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal, at the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold, and children in school playgrounds can be heard chanting the hymns of the Order of Violet. Crime is a serious problem, 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 162,624th in the world and 4th in Our Lord Shreks Holy Lands for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -33.62 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
