The Galactic Federation of Lagspikia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Patrick with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, national health service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.57 billion Lagspikians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Philadelphia. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Lagspikian economy, worth 117 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 74,868 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cults that offer eternal life after death to those who follow a self-sacrificing saviour are frowned upon, national parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys', jail house rock has been replaced with jail house golden oldies, and the military frequently holds bake sales to raise funds. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lagspikia's national animal is the Porcupine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lagspikia is ranked 7,849th in the world and 6th in The United Federations for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 5,130.89 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
