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 notable for its anti-smoking policies, ubiquitous missile silos, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 30.401 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 3,410 trillion tokens a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 112,170 tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Kids who move from attending a public school in the the city to the country often struggle in goat milking class, tuba players are paid to quietly whisper into their instruments, concussed elderly pekineseball players cannot remember their lineup position, and noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law. 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 3,018th in the world and 173rd in Osiris for Largest Black Market, with 150 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
