The Galactic Federation of Lakarian is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Baltar with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 25.31 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13%. 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.

Teachers are routinely tested to keep their jobs, the government has enacted freedom of information, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, and prospective parents are cheering on the streets as they no longer need a license to have children. 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 895th in the South Pacific and 32,219th in the world for Nudest, with 178 Cheeks per Square Mile.
