Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Galactic Federation of Lakarian is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Baltar with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 28.78 billion Lakarianites are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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 3,475 trillion tokens a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,766 tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Nobody ever seems to enter or leave the armour-plated flying castle that serves as Lakarian's House of Parliament, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, breastfeeding mothers are replacing smokers to loiter outside the workplace, and citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow. 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 146,979th in the world and 5,967th in the South Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 0.68 Quips Per Hour.
