The Federation of Fashion Retail Academy is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its complete lack of public education. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.676 billion are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, with areas such as Social Welfare and Education receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fashion Retail Academy City. Income tax is unheard of. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, the government has enacted freedom of information, visitors to the famed rainforests are instead taken to vast furniture factories, and a dictator has seized power and outlawed elections. Crime is crippling. Fashion Retail Academy's national animal is the RAF, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the FRA.

Fashion Retail Academy is ranked 1st in Wonderful Paradise and 4,761st in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 196 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
