The 23 Billion S O B's of FASTERCAT is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Charlton Heston with an even hand, and notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 23.457 billion Ethnic Felines enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nazareth. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient FASTERCATian economy, worth a remarkable 5,306 trillion Duckies a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 226,201 Duckies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Farting etiquette is taught in schools, small patches of desolate land across the world are part of FASTERCATian sovereign territory, the government response to disaster victims starving for bread is "let them eat stale cake", and a cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. FASTERCAT's national animal is the double breasted mattress thrasher, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is TedNugentism.

FASTERCAT is ranked 6,715th in the world and 17th in Capitalist Paradise for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 24 valid endorsements.
