The 20 Billion S O B's of FASTERCAT is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Charlton Heston with an even hand, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, frequent executions, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 20.44 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.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Spirituality. 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 4,263 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, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 208,577 Duckies, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,038,746 per year while the poor average 23,636, a ratio of 43.9 to 1.

Diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat", cooking with water and baking soda is considered patent infringement, the government-sponsored autobiography 'A Charlton Heston For All Seasons' has only been bought by the most loyal of Charlton Heston's supporters, and families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain. 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 928th in the world and 13th in Capitalist Paradise for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 91.59 Workforce Participation Rate.
