Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Federation of Fashion Retail Academy is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its public floggings, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.737 billion Fashion Retail Academyians 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."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is primarily concerned with Law & Order, although Industry, Defense, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Welfare and Education receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fashion Retail Academy City. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fashion Retail Academyian economy, worth a remarkable 1,011 trillion FRAS a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 115,788 FRAS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens must pay to enjoy Fashion Retail Academy's pristine beaches, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, the government struggles to keep up with the endless list of petrol disasters, and the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Fashion Retail Academy's national animal is the RAF, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Fashion Retail Academy is ranked 2nd in Cuthard and 127,789th in the world for Most Pacifist, scoring -1,532 on the Lennon-Springsteen Scale.
