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 remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 29.544 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, well-organized 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 3,758 trillion tokens a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 127,225 tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

High school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate, octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, new cases of Asbestosis are cropping up as quickly as hospitals can deal with them, and intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. 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 10,673rd in the world and 179th in Osiris for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 3 Valid Endorsements.
