Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Galactic Federation of Lakarian is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Baltar with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, free-roaming dinosaurs, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 30.939 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 minute, corrupt 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 3,499 trillion tokens a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 113,114 tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Many Lakarianites struggle to find outlets for their pent-up competitive juices, spontaneous nocturnal decapitation is considered 'death by natural causes' for enemies of Lakarian, New Denver's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, and political loyalty is enforced by way of chemical addiction. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 149,362nd in the world and 4,429th in Osiris for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 9.93 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
