Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Galactic Federation of Lakarian is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Baltar with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 28.594 billion Lakarianites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt individuals juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Education. 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 3,234 trillion tokens a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 113,124 tokens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Concussed elderly pekineseball players cannot remember their lineup position, commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies, the government is outsourcing itself, and administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 7,189th in the world and 125th in the South Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 98.46 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
