The Federation of Fashion Retail Academy is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.497 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 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.

Only the wealthy vote, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, homes have been banned from having any more than one wheel, and police and sick people alike fear the Day of Rest as all institutions are forced to shut down. 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 Cuthard and 1,419th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 268.3 Insults Per Minute (net).
