The Galactic Federation of Lakarian is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Baltar with an even hand, and notable for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 25.435 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 on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Denver. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8%. 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.

The new hit series "Lakarian's Got Trauma" has corporate executives fleeing the country, marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, and all citizens are solely referenced by their allocated identity number. 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 4,307th in the South Pacific and 119,781st in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -17 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
