The Federal Art Depository of Fad is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Director with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory military service, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.497 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 63.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Fadian economy, worth 448 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 frequent. Average income is 99,782 Charitable Donations, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 388,107 per year while the poor average 17,540, a ratio of 22.1 to 1.

The examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners, prison visits increase substantially during election years, posters encourage people to "Just Do It!", and people of faith are sent to twelve-step programs for 'The Cure'. 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 205,487th in the world and 287th in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -7.67 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
