The Galactic Federation of Lakarian is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Baltar with an even hand, and remarkable for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 25.085 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 on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Denver. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

The government is spending billions of taxpayer tokens to support the Information Technology industry, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, it's a common sight to see angry commuters with grenade launchers mounted on their vehicles, and psychological disorders are a taboo subject. 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 1,597th in the South Pacific and 40,229th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 77 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
