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 anti-smoking policies, ubiquitous missile silos, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 29.298 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 3,746 trillion tokens a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 127,880 tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, condemned prisoners spend hours a day sitting in lotus position looking perplexed, and private law firms are unheard of. 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 152,492nd in the world and 7,069th in the South Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -52.01 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
