The 27 Billion Shameless S O B's of FASTERCAT is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Charlton Heston with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, avowedly heterosexual populace, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 27.891 billion Ethnic Felines are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Healthcare. 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 7,982 trillion Duckies a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 286,195 Duckies, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,209,252 per year while the poor average 43,823, a ratio of 27.6 to 1.

The government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Nazareth for fear of causing a fuss, people are always complaining about dam builders running behind schedule, truck drivers turn their engines off and coast whenever they're going downhill, and the government baselessly accuses foreign dignitaries of being assassins. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. 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 7,285th in the world and 17th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 62.76 Whatever.
