The Federation of Fashion Retail Academy is a colossal, economically powerful nation, remarkable for its complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.156 billion Fashion Retail Academyians 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, popular websites like NationStates are blocked for "national security", the Federal Council of Fashion Retail Academy has been announced as the new Head of State, and strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices. Crime is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. 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 Cuthard and 4,426th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 102 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
