The Galactic Federation of Lakarian is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Baltar with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed population of 24.889 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 is mainly concerned with 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. The average income tax rate is 30%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

A niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors, and military spending is on the increase. 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 2,245th in the South Pacific and 68,774th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 5 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
