There's two with the same acronym, one I created and the other I did not.

First Universal Congress of Knowledgeable and ERudite Scientists

Fraternal Union of Cyclists, Killers, Enforcers, and Road Scum

And, from a game I'm running at GameStorm: Global Task Force Omega vs. the World Terror Front
The Illuminatus! books featured an evangelical group called the Knights of Christianity United in Faith.

Possibly the most tortured acronym ever was from the Blackhawk comics during the "New Blackhawk Era." They worked for an outfit called the Group for Extermination of Organizations of Revenge, Greed, and Evil.

I'm not sure that beats Red Dwarf's The Committee for the Liberation and Integration of Terrifying Organisms and their Rehabilitation Into Society.

I had a dream like an 80s cartoon where the bad guys were called M.E.N.A.C.E., "Mercenary Espionage Network Advocating Chaos Extreme".
They shouted "Chaos EXTREME!" a lot.

"Chaos EXTREME!" is a perfect 80s villain battle cry!
