The Galactic Federation of Lakarian is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Baltar with an even hand, and remarkable for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 24.541 billion Lakarianites have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Law & Order, although Education and Religion & Spirituality are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Denver. The average income tax rate is 28%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, and the fire protection service is wholly government-funded. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lakarian's national animal is the elderly pekinese, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Church of the Savior, and its currency is the token.

Lakarian is ranked 8th in the South Pacific and 312th in the world for Best Weather, with 792 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
