The Federation of Fashion Retail Academy is a colossal, economically powerful nation, renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.305 billion Fashion Retail Academyians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded 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.

Politicians live in abject luxury, the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, the country has unplugged its internet connection to prevent subversive content, and citizens who refuse to vote are guillotined. 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 108,443rd in the world for Best Weather, with -359 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
