The Galactic Federation of Lakarian is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Baltar with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed population of 24.715 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 31%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Police spend their Saturday nights breaking up illegal street races, foreigners are treated with great suspicion, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, and large areas of Lakarian are not accessible by the public. 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 6th in the South Pacific and 168th in the world for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 4,346.5 Net Tourists per hour.
