The Galactic Federation of Lakarian is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Baltar with an even hand, and renowned for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 25.668 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.

The large, corrupt government is effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, with Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Denver. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Lakarianian economy, worth a remarkable 3,032 trillion tokens a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 118,150 tokens, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government's religious works are headed by a New Age guru, abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies, and a National Academy regulates grammar and usage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Lakarian's national animal is the elderly pekinese, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of the Savior.

Lakarian is ranked 3,163rd in the South Pacific and 84,984th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.105 Stalins.
