Mission: To provide quality training to Furbies to prepare them to take their place in the New World Order, protecting and promoting Furby interests internationally.
Commandante of the Academies: Lieutenant General Julia Webb
Does your Furby have what it takes to be the best of the best? Send it to the Furby Military Academies, and we'll put it through our rigorous training courses. Our fully-qualified cadre of elite instructors will find out if your Furby has what it takes to graduate from our Academies and earn the coveted insignia of the Furby Military Academies. Surviving graduates will be returned home stronger and tougher, ready to defend Furby freedom at any hotspot in the world. Non-graduating Furbies will be returned home in a box (at least, as many pieces as we can recover) and enshrined on the Page of Rememberance.
You don't have a Furby, but you do have something equally obnoxious? Thanks to WHIM/PER (the Western Hemisphere Institute of Military/Paramilitary Experience and Reeducation), the Furby Military Academies may admit non-Furby nationals into our exclusive training programs. The FMA is proud to accept Pokemon, Tickle-Me-Elmos, Barney, Smurfs, Tomagothchi, Pikachu, and more, in addition to Furbies of any type.
What is all this?!? Take a look at our Fall 1999 Field Training Exercise for an illustration of the Furby Military Academies training and indoctrination. If you look at nothing else on these pages, please look at the Fall 1999 FTX!

|Defining the curriculum with PFC Bob|
The Furby Military Academies is a wholly unsubsidized pseudo-paramilitary training academy of the Sovereign Republic of Mapulto.
The Furby Military Academies are conducting security reviews for future training schedules.
|Recruit-Candidate||An applicant to the Furby Military Academies who awaits FTX training|
|Senior Recruit-Candidate||The most qualified, experienced Recruit-Candidate|
|Recruit||Furby currently under training, usually awarded during transit to the FTX site|
|Private, Furby Class||A graduate of the FTX; the rank may be (and usually is) awarded posthumously|
At present, there appears to be no need for any rank past PFC.
It started out as a joke.
On second thought, it still is a joke.
Regardless, it started out as a lunch-time discussion that evolved into an excuse to destroy some obnoxious Furby dolls by launching them into the air and putting steel shot through them. Julia and Dan had invented the "Send a Furby to Flight School" program.
Since then, it has expanded into a whole range of Furby para-military training opportunities.
