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 free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 29.805 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 3,290 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 110,385 tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Life expectancy is way down but posthuman perfectionism is way up, all astronauts are hot twenty-something models selected because they have 'the right stuff', the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, and marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams. 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 19,715th in the world and 487th in Osiris for Most Average, scoring 46.73 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
