Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Galactic Federation of Lakarian is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Baltar with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 28.946 billion Lakarianites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Denver. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Lakarianian economy, worth a remarkable 3,650 trillion tokens a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 126,114 tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, Lakarian is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, the nation leads the South Pacific in per capita stalking, and tax rises are attributed to divine will. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Lakarian's national animal is the elderly pekinese, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of the Savior.

Lakarian is ranked 46,575th in the world and 1,770th in the South Pacific for Nudest, with 173 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
