The Galactic Federation of Lakarian is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Baltar with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 24.961 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 is mainly concerned with Law & Order, although Education and Religion & Spirituality are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Denver. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, referenda are held for every conceivable government action, otherwise healthy people are being sent to internment camps because they have VODAIS, 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 3,931st in the South Pacific and 114,399th in the world for Most Godforsaken, with -876 Dawkins.
