In the post-apocalyptic world of The Last of Us, the so-called FEDRA is one of the most important major factions. FEDRA soldiers played a key role in the very first episode, which aired on Sky/Wow last Monday. But if you’re still not quite sure who these people are and what they want, we’ll summarize everything you need to know.


Here’s what you need to know about the faction

FEDRA is basically the military government in the post-apocalyptic USA, who call the shots in the secured zones. They came to power shortly after the crisis erupted. The zones exist in The Last of Us universe in cities spread across North America. While there are people living outside of these zones, which will play a role in later episodes of the series, FEDRA wields tremendous power as the leader of the organized safe areas.

This is already evident in the first episode, in which we experience how hard and strictly regulated life in the quarantine zone of Boston is. While FEDRA ensures the safety of the residents, from what we see it can also be described as a dictatorial government. You are in control of important resources like food and weapons.
