The Galactic Federation of Lakarian is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Baltar with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed population of 25.097 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 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 22%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Nine out of ten citizens of Lakarian answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation, citizens wishing to be parents must undertake a series of gruelling tests to evaluate their capabilities, citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want, and the loom represents the height of Lakarian's technology. 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 978th in the South Pacific and 28,800th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -4 on the Hayek Index.
