The Galactic Federation of Lakarian is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Baltar with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed population of 24.793 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 concentrates mainly on 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. The average income tax rate is 27%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Corporations are forbidden from employing outside the nation, the roads are virtually falling apart, the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, and Lakarian's army is full of two-metre tall super-soldiers. 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 286th in the world for Safest, scoring 2,000.4 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
