Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Galactic Federation of Lakarian is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Baltar with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, flagrant waste-dumping, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 26.384 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Lakarianian economy, worth a remarkable 3,183 trillion tokens a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 120,656 tokens, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

Euthanasia is illegal, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, and cops enjoy driving jaywalkers into the ground. 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 11th in the South Pacific and 849th in the world for Most Devout, scoring 313 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
