The Federal Art Depository of Fad is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Director with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.09 billion Curators 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.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of A Grandiose Neo-Classical Structure. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 64.7%.

The all-consuming Fadian economy, worth 312 trillion Charitable Donations a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 101,257 Charitable Donations, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 362,899 per year while the poor average 20,262, a ratio of 17.9 to 1.

Citizens are tied down and forced to watch educational videos on empathy, lending money has become a major liability, feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary, and citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fad's national animal is the Marmoset, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Fad is ranked 47,413th in the world and 169th in Forest for Most Stationary, with 287.91507962312 Days.
