Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Galactic Federation of Lakarian is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Baltar with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 26.195 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.

The large, corrupt government is effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, with Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Denver. The average income tax rate is 2.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Lakarianian economy, worth a remarkable 3,160 trillion tokens a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,639 tokens, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

The breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Lakarian, ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, the government prefers to kill off its enemies by peaceful means, and graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Lakarian's national animal is the elderly pekinese, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of the Savior.

Lakarian is ranked 6,062nd in the South Pacific and 136,679th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -230 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
